I would prefer it without the shadow but still worth a click for the strong colours and uncluttered view.

Strong and solid Eric...

btw who was the principal architect behind so many of Liverpool's civic buildings...? I don't know the city at all but I can discern, from your work, what seems to be a strong egyptologist influence....are there more buildings of this style..?... I'm fascinated because Glasgow has a lot of classic greek influence in its civic architecture mainly due to a Victorian architect called Alexander 'Greek' Thompson

Does Liverpool have a similar person?

The shadow has to be the only distraction Eric, but other than that, gets my vote.

Fantastic Eric - a really strong image. You certainly have lots of great architecture in Liverpool.

PS - have just bought an OM10 on ebay, Eric so may need a few hints - can't wait to get started!

Very strong composition Eric. I do not have a problem with the shadow. It could be an Egyptian temple!! - steve

Many thanks to all for the comments! Smile

Mari, I'd be glad to give hints on the OM10. Hope it serves you well.

Liverpool doesn't have a single architect associated with it. It has a very wide variety of buildings, old and new by built by many different people, some made their name in Liverpool and went on to build many of the great buildings of London, and sometimes the flow was the other way, with famous London architects being commissioned by the local dignataries (Waterhouse springs to mind). At a guess, I'd say that still over 50% of the city centre and immediate surroundings is either Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian.

Again, thanks to everyone who stopped to take a closer look. Grin

Very good work here Eric. Strong composition and you have achieved a good balance throughout. I dont think the shadow is a problem.
Great stuff.

Many thanks for dropping by and taking a look, Phil, Andrew and Len.

I think maybe the shadow is a matter of taste. Personally, I thought it added an interesting contrast, showing how the building's material looks under lower levels of light. I love decco and all the Mersey tunnel architecture is in that style, so you may be seeing more of it from me in the future.

Very impressive image Eric, love the colour of the building which stands out well from the blue of the sky. Excellent light and detail.
