Yet another view of these imposing sculptures in the CBD of Calgary city. Here, I've focussed on the reflection in the highrise building.
"Stephen Avenue is a major pedestrian mall in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The mall is actually the portion of 8 Avenue SW between 4 Street SW and 1 Street SE. It is open to vehicles only from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
The street is known for its restaurants, high-end retail, and its pubs. Places to shop include Calgary Eaton Centre, TD Square, Bankers Hall, Scotia Centre, and The Bay.
The street is also home to downtown Calgary's major convention and exhibition facility, the Telus Convention Centre, and two hotels, the Hyatt Regency Calgary, which incorporates several historic buildings into its facade, and the Calgary Marriott.
Unlike 17 Avenue, Stephen Avenue is not regarded as a major night spot in the city, although there are night clubs located on the mall."

The reflection in the windows of the highrise building are assets to the composition. The point of view from the bottom to the top is giving perspective to the photo. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

A wonderful graphical image with great reflections. I like the vertiginous viewpoint and the repeating motifs of the windows. The sculptures introduce another interesting element with their curving lines. Very well conceived composition.

Une contre-plongée qui magnifie le graphisme de ces architectures.Belle harmonie de couleurs entre certains reflets chauds et le bleu.

The perspective is very interesting as well as the reflection of the building and the structure. The contrasts are strong and the many lines make it symmetrical. Well done!
