Every time I venture into the Downtown Financial district of Vancouver I pass this tall Clock Tower and get frustrated for not photographing it.
Its very hard to photograph due to its angle and where its located on the street corner, you'll just have to trust me on that one.
It was early Sunday morning, with very few people walking the sidewalks so I thought i'd give it a try. The sky was overcast and very bright, so i used the building on the side as the backdrop.
Hope you like it.

Ces façades sont bien montrées dans un bel éclairage et une bonne composition avec l'horloge bien placée au 2/3. La qualité d'image nous laisse bien voir les détails et les tons à dominance grise sont bien rendus.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne journée,

J'apprécie le HDR dans ce genre de photos car il donne de la "structure" à la pierre. Un très bon cadrage qui donne une originalité intéressante à la photo.

you have photographed it in a very beautiful way,the other building gives a nice background, in perfect harmony, and its better and more original that the sky, even in it has been blue.I love the general softness of this picture, colors or textures.Superb!

questo è stato un modo perfetto per fotografare l'orologio, metterlo a confronto con una bella architettura alle sue spalle che funge da sfondo e che gli dona un grande appeal grafico. Bravo, davvero eccellente la scelta del soggetto e del POV.
Un caro abbraccio

I like these kinds of shots - with two buildings interesting at an angle. We can really compare and enjoy two different styles and the same time. As always, very good sharpness and detail. The clock is nice, but I really like the repeating rows of windows on the adjacent building. :-)

this works really well! The aspect and effect here is absorbing and beautifully detailed. The sharpness is perfect as is the soft light that makes everything have a sensual glow about it. Splendid!
Regards - Brian.

Now, this one is HDR, isn't it? I think I've got it right this time!
But, again, it's very subtly done and the effect is so very pleasing with none of those horrid garish features which we so often see with over-enthusiastic attempts at HDR.
The composition is excellent too, conforming well with the much revered rule of thirds, the colours are excellent and the sharpness is, as always, exquisite. Was this picture taken from ground level or were you higher than that?
P.S. Something I've been thinking about - as so many of your pictures are taken in cities, it would be great for us to be able to pin-point the exact locations of some of them. Have you thought about adding co-ordinates or maps?
I've been trying to find this place on Google Earth but I don't really know what I'm looking for. However, if you have a wee look at this map and drag the yellow man down to the red cross and pan around, you will see the place from where you took your lovely pictures of the City Halls in San Francisco. Now, ain't that cool or what?
It would be great to see exactly where you took some of your Vancouver shots too - though I have taken a "virtual walk" along here!

I like this upper detail. Impressive buildings in interesting textures and colors. Well taken!

Amazing POV looking upwards, with super clear elements of the buildings shown.
Early sunday stroll, you managed to fulfill your wish...
Fine taken image.
