An unusual view of Paddington station from London St. I was initially drawn by the row of scooters but on looking up realised how they contrasted with the Gothic elements of the station building.

London St is quite narrow though, so this was taken with a 10mm (16mm equivalent FOV) lens to capture the scene and then VERY extensively corrected for vertical perspective for effect. One of the red scooters was originally another colour too.

This image has done pretty well, winning its club comp at Amersham and being accepted for this years Southampton International and other regional exhibitions.

Very clear and tidy image with geometric pattern.The background cloud is in contrast with the lines of the building,which gives the image a dynamic 'push'.I'm also fascinated by the objects on the first floor....You did a great work on "VERY extensively corrected for vertical perspective ".
Congratulations to the rest.

Very well observed and taken, the sky gives a tremendous feeling of movement to what could have been a very static image, as does the varied light reflected in the windows. Well deserving of the attention it is receiving.

Thank you for the comments. The windows are quite interesting, the main white areas are sky and the peculiar shapes on the first floor are a reflection of the roof-line of the building behind, the roof of which appears to be covered in dark brown tiles. Through the windows you can see light coloured slatted blinds which mix confusingly with the reflections. Then behind that there is all the usual office paraphernalia. In the upper two floors you can also see the fluorescent strip lights on the ceilings.

Even on the competition print which is ~36x25cm, some of these details are almost too small to easily see.

Sandra, I'll have it in the print final on Monday so you can watch it being slated there Wink
