In 1992 there was a big lightshow on Canary Wharf Tower, London. I can't remember what it was for now but it ran for a few days and had the letters 'Hi' and some sort of countdown displayed on the windows. You could see it for miles. My Brother in-law was kind enough to take me over there in the evening to do a shoot (Thanks Ian)

Straight shot cleaned up and border added in Photoshop.

We as man, have created some increadible things. Its only natural that we would want to bask in our own glory by capturing these increadible things in such a beautiful state.

You sir, are a gifted photographer.

This is the type of architecture work that makes me hunger for downtown in the dead of night. The long exposure captured the roof-top flourescents exceptionally well; I love the ethereal quality they have. The hue of the purple and its transparency are perfect (and somehow the building on the right has the same quality!), sumptuous throughout.

The colors of the main building's windows top it off for me. To date, this is the best cityscape shot I've seen. Not to sound like I'm toadying, but I'm glad it's gotten the press it has.

What i liek about it is the blue on the black at the top. How it is so powerful then so perfectly faded. And how the purple gets stronger aas it gets clsoer to it.

Border and font for the text go well too.

Dammit! I thought I commented on this one...apparently not. Your capture transforms this building into a magical tower full of light, color, and shapes that hypnotize the eyes. You made this towering beast into a beauty to look at...and look up to (with reference to the angle of the shot :-) (Smile) )

holy smokes! that is beautiful.
those blue lights at the top are just awesome, they remind me of that scene in some die hard movie where bruce willis is jumping off the ledge to get away from the exploding helicopter.


Thumbs Up :D (Big Grin)
