    I love that second pic. It would look amazing with a bright blue sky behind it.

    The architect really pulled out all the stops when designing that one. Excellent shot. I enjoy the sky. Good exposure; I am guessing it was a little tricky.

    this is a good capture, just a shame about the sky being as duss as it was in those pictures

    I dunno. I like the grey sky. It looks like a giant liquid blob and you're seeing the sky reflected through it. I'd still be interested to see it with a blue sky. It'd have a totally different feel to it.
    Well done triggerhappy. :)

    Thanks again all!

    Miles, I know what you mean about the sky. The weather was really rubbish while we were there so not much to go on.

    ferny/craig. Glad you liked the sky in the second pic. It was really nice to end up with a little contrast for a change, rather then the bland overcast sky that I got in all the others.

    Actually, a friend of mine works for the company that built the thing. He was telling me that they had real difficulty getting all the panes of glass in place. Scaffolding doesn't really work for something that shape. Apparently they ended up getting guys to absail down the building carrying the panes of glass. Crazy or what?! :shock:
