Here is one of many of these towers I will be uploading, taken at at an angle with an ultra wide lens to exaggerate the leaning properties of these two towers, so the effect is intentional!
They are to be found at La Plaza de Castilla, Paseo de la Castellana, Madrid Capital, Spain.

Hope you like it, many more exciting ones to come.

Great shot, I really love the drama and the intense colours and it definitely invokes an emotional response and a sense of imminent danger.

Maybe personal preference, but I just feel that it needs a very slight rotation to the right so the building in the far distance is upright and the sky line is level.

Tim, what you are asking is impossible as the image is level, the effect it has of one building being taller than the other is because it is nearer to me, if I make the sky level then the ground would be on a slant. If I distort the image it will all go weird and wont have the distance effect and would look false, However I did do some shots where they are face on and square!

thanks for commenting everyone.

Impressive, both the towers and the image. The colour is excellent, have to single out the lime green 'bus for attention here. Don't remember this plaza, it's clearly about time I went back to Madrid.

Thanks Bill, the Plaza is about a mile north of the stadium ( Bernabeu) so its a fair way away from the usual central tourist routes.

thanks Anne shame only 2 in 10 seem to think so, let's get away from the oversaturated landscapes for a while was my thought!

Stunning image. I knew about these but have never seen them (never walked that far up Castellana!). Must make an effort next time.

Excellent work! I thought they were really built like that until I read your description.

This is astonishingly effective Luis - one of the reasons being that the other buildings in the photo are relatively undistorted.

My friend who (allegedly) speaks Spanish has told me to say "Primera clase".......... hope that translates to something OK! Wink
