THis rather greenhouse looking piece of architecture is in fact a well know shopping centre in the centre of Maidstone. I soon as I was in I was clicking away with my support worker trying to steady me as much as possible. I love this type of geometrical and symmetrical type of architecture, and the glass or perspex roof let in so much light that it was to just much of an opportunity to miss, especially in this spate of rather inclement weather. Hope you enjoy.

More people ought to look up at architecture.You have dealt well with the demands of this interesting if functional subject and bright but awkward light: it took me quite a while to spot the flare which I actually rather like! There is great depth in the perspective. An image that repays careful viewing.

Regards
Bill

Nice one Nathan, that is a very good capture bearing in mind you were shooting into the sun, lots of detail still and exposure veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy good. Did you have to bracket the exposures or did you get this first time?
Well done.
