Dazzling emeralds

By ColleenA
St Collins lane is a $200 million high end luxury shopping centre in Melbourne and was refurbished a few months ago. As you saw in yesterday's images the architect used low lighting, lots of reflective surfaces and 5,000 green cylinders hanging from the ceilings and skylights. He calls it his crowning glory...an undulating "lightscape" of green neon pendants. He wanted diners and shoppers to feel like they are under a canopy of leaves.
Here are a few of my favourites ...it was hard to pick a lead but decided on this one because of the reflections in the closer ones.
Many thanks for the great response to yesterday's upload..messages to follow to all who gave me user awards
Have a great day

At first I thought you were using ' trick ' photography. It's a marvel that this really exists. He can be proud of this as the effect is a delight. You can be proud of presenting it so well too. TG
