This perspective really is crazy, Les, isn't it! It kinda looks like an earthquake has move parts of it around. smile I do like that old gate in the foreground and wonder what it goes to??
Les Auld: The gate leads to the churchyard of St Nicholas Church, one day Ill get a decent picture of it to post. The perspective is down to a 10-20mm wide angle zoom with a touch of fixing the converging verticals. Thanks for the comment Ginnie.

Beautiful - almost a 3D feel to it. I like the movement as well, makes it near to live.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, it also shows the scale of it.
Very nice shot Les of a quite unusual looking building once you look up to the higher levels.
Les Auld: You have to keep looking up to see the interesting bits Brian, thanks for the comment.
Very nice! You took at the right hour while there is still some light of the sun but also from the city and the cars.

I agree with Louis: it has 3D feel.
Les Auld: Thanks Paul, twilight is the best time for photography in my mind.
Fantastic photo, thanks for posting and well done. I love the dusk lighting.

Cheers Scotland
Les Auld: Thanks Larry, appreciate the comment.
