Fantastic image and wonderful building, Tim. Beautifully shot.
Jane, thank you for commenting. His buildings are fantastic or is that futuristic.
Gehry’s work is wonderful and challenging. I shot this late in the day and the sun was bouncing off some of his reflective surfaces. This was particularly true on this side of the building. I chose to use bracketed shots and then develop them using HDR to get a greater dynamic range. It seemed to work.

Smart workflow. And your HDR looks very natural and well done.
Thank you Jane. HDR can look terribly over done. In this case is gave me more dynamic range without over kill.
Works great in monochrome.
Have a great week and try to stay dry.
This is a great photo, Tim. The touch of reflection at the lower left is perfect.
Rawls, thank you.
Fortunately that reflective surface was not in the direct sunlight that the rest of the building was exposed to. I’ve decided with Gehry’s building to begin to concentrate on small sections. As great as is his building are, they can be overwhelming. In this image I’ve focused on the second story and above. Using B&W gets rid of some of the color distraction.
It has to be a Gehry creation, we have one in Las Vegas too, it’s a brain clinic! Love his work, great photo Tim. 😎👍🏻
John, it is! You have mentioned the one that is located in Las Vegas. I’m fascinated that it is brain clinic. Mental chaos?
I forget things too easily these days. Not sure, never got nutty enough yet to stop in!
HaHa! The building appears to be a great opportunity to shoot it extensively at various angle and times of the day. I thought you might find this article, “How to create striking abstract architectural photography” in Popular Photography interesting. https://www.popphoto.com/how-to-create-striking-abstract-architectural-photography?cmpid=ene20190105&utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&cid=46000&mid=394619429
Wow. I stared at this photo for a moment, wow. The detail and number of things going on is wonderful. Thank you for the link!
John, you’re welcome. I thought you would enjoy this.
