This is such a fun photo -- it's so rare to see a different angle on a building you see every day, I looked at this because it was a good shot, and then realised it was the Gerkhin.

Blows me away - I aspire to have photos as interesting as yours, and shooting buildings against skylines is a firm favourite of mine.

Hence why I've collected a fair few of your photos!

Wish I'd been there (and If I HAD been, I wouldn't have linked you to some random dude's photo, but to my own :D), hehe... I was just pointing out how stuck that photo of yours was in my head. :slow:

"Gherkin!" <-- That's what we yell when we're on the train to Fenchurch St.
Great piece, really effective. It is a funky building and you've captured that, making it beautiful at the same time. Considering that from a distance it looks more like a rocket (I'm waiting for it on the news - "The Gherkin building has launched... OH MY GOD!") giving it this look is pretty great.
Loving it.

I love how the spotlights are displayed two fold in the glass, bringing a business about it, while the long, tall arms seem to be like modern oaks, tall and strong and very unmoving. The whole piece has an atmosphere. The green and black huges are captured beautifully and I like how it is quite dark (even though you have opened up the lense at slow speed). Wonderful work as always.
