I love this building so much in a city where most of the architure is in the past this one just zooms to the future. Nice shot congrats on the yellow!

I like the angle you've got, but the wide border at the bottom makes it look like you've chopped off the feet of the building and spoils the composition

fits challenge perfectly. bizarre architecture indeed. However, border choice is not the best one.

i like this image because your capture makes me think of it like being something else not just a building

Great choice of structures and time of day to get the shot. I love the shadows and lighting from the upper level windows. Nicely done! 10

The light and shadows make this building seem alive to me, in the "the monster is alive and coming" sense. One of my favourites.

what an amazing image

Imposing looking architecture and you maximized this with the angle and lens you chose and that dramatic deep blue sky as a backdrop. I love the way the building is lit showing those beautiful curves, lines and textures. Great exposure and nice fine detail. I reckon this will finish in the top 10 and even has a chance to ribbon. 9

Very cool. This must be either the Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC or the Museum of Civilization in Hull, Quebec.
