These were taken San Francisco. Given that I was unable to get unrestricted views of the buildings, I instead concentrated on portions of them. C&C welcome. Richard

I like the second and last one. You can probably make some interesting B&W's of that last building during the loop of a day seeing it change in the changing light.

Antoinette, Mike and Fons: thanks for your comments. They are appreciated. Antoinette: I like your suggestions of shooting the building at different times of the day. Could be a great excuse for a return trip. Richard

Nice angles.

Is #5 two different buildings?

As for C&C, the blue sky is monotonous in these.  Nothing you can do except reshoot when there's a little more 'sky action'.

Or, switch from photography to photo-montage and fake a more-exciting sky in.

there is a fascinating (and somewhat depressing) story about the design of building #5 and how a relatively stately, calm, and nicely proportioned art-deco-revival granite facade got that sloped glass top and spire applied to it. it's often cited as an example of the design/approval process for downtown architecture in san francisco in the 80s.

One of the reasons I like these is because they remind me of a photo I took some time ago:

Mike: thanks for your post. Looks like we were attempting the same thing, which was to portray the buildings as abstract shapes. At least, that's what I was trying to do. Thanks again, Richard

Richard, my picture was taken with a Coolpix 5700 so it was more a case of trying to get as much in as possible, the fact that it turned out a little abstract is fortuitous rather then planned.
