Riverside Museum 2...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...I deliberately left all the wide angle distortion here as there's not many straight verticals anyway. This is how I saw the building with the camera pointing UP. It's done for effect and the building is all about effect and visual impact.

A great use of reflection and the jagged silhouette is also great in this composition

You do the best comment on your image from the start and leave us with no words to do a better comment. Smile
A beautiful, eyecatching building - the glass front with the magical reflection adds to the all over impression.
Another great image of this architectural jewel.

Johanna has hit the nail on the head, Dougie: your own remarks summarise the situation so well. The dark glass frontage panels act as an excellent reflective surface and show off the Glenlee's masts so effectively.

This is a good one. A naturally dynamic frame for those masts.

You spoiled it for me about to tell you about converging verticals..I thought I would be so clever and Knowledgeable. I just love how you have filled that front panel with reflections.

It certainly has impact, Dougie! Perhaps appropriately for an image containing a tall ship, the roof-line of the building resembles an oscilloscope reading - of a sea shanty!

Great comment Bill, don't get many of them to the pound my friend.

I's supposed to represent a wave so your comment is by no means off tune. Wink

Great shot !!!....with the reflected tall-ship the whole thing looks to me like a facade, but without a 'building' behind it ???.....optical illusion, or should
I take more water with it ????????
I'm sure that was the thought of the architect Keith, if you google "Riverside Museum" you'll see the plan from the air.

A very impressive building, and looks lovely against that blue sky. Lovely reflections of the masts as well. Moira

I see what you did there. I corrected the verticals in mine but I can see where you're coming from; it gives the building more drama in the late morning light.
