As I had a bit of free time at work today I wandered around one of our more recent buildings. This one was built about two years ago and unless I’d been deliberately looking for shots I would never have seen this. It’s taken from a right-angled corner that isn’t on any of the paths, nor near a door, but I was determined to find an unusual angle.
What’s a bit odd about this shot is that aspects of it (to me at least) look faked (the strong while line between the sky and the edge of the building, and the underlighting on the wood), but, other than some Levels and Curves adjustment (and a very minor colour correction), it’s actually a straight shot.
And the building, in case you’re interested, appears to be made of some form of aluminium (or aluminium alloy). In this shot it looks almost plastic, but the light was quite amazing this morning, and it lit this building beautifully.
