This is a shot of the library looking up from a part of the library which appeared to be dedicated to media of various sorts. Usually you see images of this circle from above taking in the whole of Centenary Square - I thought I would be different and look up (as usual)!

Cool modern structure, seeing these I see why you mentioned before that Birmingham is becoming a haven for those interested in architecture and photography, Id be very happy here. There is a very moody almost post apocalyptic feel to this, which is very cool, the sky makes a beautiful centre in this very interesting composition.
Thanks as always, your posts are always fascinating.

Nice architectural shot. The POV is interesting since you use the building to create a frame that highlights the oroginal fašade and the cloudy sky.
Good job !

this is a stunning composition and viewpoint. your black and white format is superb and very effective. the clouds and sky add extra drama to the architecture. i like the figure in the centre which really gives perspective and scale.

Your POV is spectacular and gave truly brilliant scene! It looks modern and extremely attractive with strong contrast and very well executed textures. Like it! TFS.
Have a nice weekend!

pochi, ma buoni. Ogni tuo scatto Ŕ molto ricercato e di eccellente fattura.
Ottimo gioco di geometrie, il b&w ha una funzione fondamentale in questo.
Bello il cielo e giusta la presenza dell'uomo.

Excellent use of circles as the design theme for this photograph. The existence of the small figure helps to humanize this gargantuan architecture.
