Another Capture from the Dark Side of the River Clyde looking across to the light side (north) this time looking a little more down the water to the west and to incorporate the Clyde Auditorium more commonly known here as the armadillo due to its similarity to the animal of a similar name.
The building sits on reclaimed Queens Dock the design was by Foster and partners, the Auditorium seats 1,100 people.

The design has been compared with the Sydney opera house due to the similarity of shape but in fact is based on a design of interlocking ships hulls which is more appropriate to the history of the Clyde.

I loved the clouds in this capture again so once more I have tone mapped the image to enhance same.
Many thanks to all for their kind comments on the last upload it is much appreciated and special thanks goes to Andy (Andylea) for his valued UA.

Once again shot as a raw and developed in ACDC no changes other than tone mapping

I like this shot in many respects, but I would have preferred the life buoy to have been to the right of that crane, or in between the crane and the Armadillo.

i like the tones and clouds very much, I feel its a pity about hte position of the yellow post and life ring, they interfere with the background structure in my opinion

The ring is maybe a bit central, Graham, but the sky is a beauty, and very well processed.

well lined up, a fascinating composition. The building in the b/g is as intriguing as the cranes.

There are some great photo opportunities along the riverside now, and so different to what one might have captured 50 or 60 years back.
Guess Ian's comment carries weight and I'll issue a permit for you to invade the dark side once again so that you can repeat the performance.
But joking apart, and that apart, a fine image showing off these modern builds alongside the relic from from former days.
Can only sign off now as......
