Urban landscapes: the dynamic buildings

NEW LIBRARY AND CITY HALL, CALGARY, ALBERTA

The new library isn’t finished yet, but it’s already a stunning subject for urban architecture photography. I like the contrast with the glass facade of the city hall in the background.
The final touch to making this picture successful, in my humble opinion, was twisting the camera away from a straight vertical view. By doing this, the scene has much more dynamic diagonal lines.
