Not sure what the name of these buildings are, but we passed by them on that double decker bus tour, which I now fully endorse since I got so many great shots all around the city in a small amount of time without having to walk around till my knees are on fire like I usually do :) I just like how the tonality came out on this particular shot. That and the patterns formed by the windows, hope you like it too!

The intensity of the low key colour is wonderful. Great perspective and composition - you've given the building enough room to 'breath' within the frame. Spectacular.

very nice...the buildings have a toy-like quality, but the mood is very dark

I really like how dark they become at the top... And how clean and smooth they look.

I am also glad that I'm not the only one with jaggies on my photos. These straight lines don't look too good when the images are resized. :(

Dude...this shot is the bomb. I have seen lots of building shots, but this one is damn fine. Grand in composition, color, and choice of subject matter.

BTW...what the hell...I went over to the photobloggies last night to vote and when it came time to vote on the best designed photoblog...you weren't there. That, my friend, is damn shame. If I had of known I would have nominated you myself.

Keep on keepin' on.

BaBAM! This is incredible in lighting and composition. Really nice receding lines.

Reminds me of a hand colored b/w print, and those buildings look almost rendered, the lines are so clean. Nice!

I love how the curved face of the building on the left blends into the sky at the top, and as you look down, it becomes more discernable as part of the structure. What also strikes me is the juxtaposition between the throwback design of the right side building and the modern design of the other. Great shot.

Nice work on this one, Archie. I just love the way the light and the shadows play against the building. And the sky is simply wonderful. I assume this was an afternoon shot?
