Finding the Right Angle

Posted by
Ian Smith (London, United Kingdom) on 20 February 2012 in Architecture and Portfolio.

I can understand why Hugo loves this building - it is 'so' photogenic - it looks good at every angle! But standing at its base and looking straight up through the lens of a heavy DSLR sure puts a strain on the neck.

John McTiernan-esque. Like Nakotomi Plaza at twilight.

Oh yes, definitely one superb angle... but I'm also amazed by your play of light and choice of tone that have made this an unforgettable spectacle! Ian, you've proved that strain on the neck is pretty worthwhile!:-)

Amazing perspective! You get almost a 90 ° angle, following the framework! You know what I mean ?
