    Thanks LaRee. I can always count on a thoughtful response from you. I did take shots straight on but personal preference was the angled shot. Unfortunately we've had a lot of cloudy/rainy days and the weather just never cleared up at the right time for me, thus the dismal background.

    Now this is a unique bit of architecture! Looks like a place I'd like to visit. There must be some reason you didn't shoot this straight on? I'm assuming the surroundings prohibited it. Although I like being able to see the side glass and I guess I wouldn't be able to if you'd shot it straight. Very interesting image. Good luck!

    Always going to be a hard shot to take, and i'm sure the weather didn't help! I'm intrigued what the shot would have been like from dead straight on? Either with much less or much more water in the frame?

    The lighting on the day did not help you much here. Nice shape and I like the way you have angled the shot. Perhaps a little less foreground water would help.

    An interesting structure and a very good attempt in adverse weather conditions. I had the same problem with grey skies and grey water over almost the whole entry period. Good luck!
