Urban landscapes: hands up
CAMPUS BUILDING, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA
As soon as I saw this wondrous slab of colour and design, I knew I had to photograph it. The trick was waiting for the sun to emerge from clouds and to keep tree shadows from interfering.
I purposely twisted the perspective to create strong diagonal lines and angled spaces, which makes the composition less static and more energetic. I also put the hand off-centre, letting the windows in the lower left serve as a balancing element.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
