Riverside Museum...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...a great addition to the museums of Glasgow and one of the most modern as far as exterior design.
This should help explain the abstract image posted yesterday, hopefully.
An urban mountain with jagged peaks. I rarely keep people in my images but the little child with their shadow was a moment to capture.

Super composition, architecture with foreground contrast. The lines in that building are wonderful, the reflections could keep me going for a week. Between you and Fraser, you have me hooked, I feel a visit to Glasgow coming on.

Photogenic approach Dougie, the capstan a perfect and appropiate anchor for the Transport museum.

maybe it's just the size of the image, but the child and shadow hardly register. The graphic lines of the shadows and fence in the foreground are wonderful though.

It's a great new spot for photography with so many different opportunities, Dougie, and you have made very good use of a very wide angle lens to get so much in from this viewpoint.

Great shot of a great building. A great render of Zaha Hadid's design Dougie. She should see it!

Wonderful composition - I like the inclusion of the capstan and the reflection of the boat - all in all it's brilliant!

What a fantastic building. Beautifully composed shot Dougie. Lucky that there were not too many people around when you took this, as you have great clear views of the building and quayside. I do not like folk in my shots either, unless I intend them to be there! Moira

So nice to see the whole building - amazing architecture. And a very well composed image full of interest.

Initially I thought that this picture was shot by shotlandka, she had taken a similar one and uploaded in flickr and a scottish photography website.

I would suggest you if you can to shoot it with a different aspect ratio. I would have chosen 16:9 to include the tall ship moored. Or I would have attempted to shoot with the same lens keeping the edge of the building on the left as the one end and walking backwards to include all of the tall ship. If there was space to walk backwards that is.

The child and the shadow don't affect the picture. A seagull could have affected it positively if it was passing by... Sometimes the photograph is what you can make at that give time you choose to press the shutter. You can revisit the place to try again, so many items to shoot there.

hmm maybe 16:9 would have chopped something from the bottom unless you had to place the camera very very low...

An amazing piece of modern architecture, Dougie, and I cannot imagine it being better presented than from the angle you have chosen here. That building is an architectural photographic dream.
Is the shape of the outline representative of something, or merely a modern design?

It's a wave apparently, better seen from the air I believe. It's a nightmare with all these different angles to try to keep straight. I gave up Malc.

Just illustrates that good composition transcends photographic genre's. Top stuff Dougie.
