GJC from Kyoto (京都), Japan

So carefully done, it almost looks like an architect's mock-up rather than a real place! The light is wonderful.

Chris Ward from Manchester, United Kingdom

You've captured this really well. I especially like your Manchester shots and being able to place where they are around the city. Recently I came across your photo of the Hilton from a while back and it was one of the main inspirations to start doing a photoblog here myself!

you have a great eye for interplay between light and shadow and for great and well balanced geometrical compositions - this is no exception - superb work!
