The One Canada Square in Canary Wharf, London. It's 235m high and counts 50 floors.
This place is fantastic if you love to photograph architecture. Just be aware of security. They don't appreciate people pointing their cameras to the buildings. Showing your pictures amazes them for a few seconds demonstrating they are guarding something truly beautiful.
TECH-INFO: The fun part was to find a compelling angle resulting in a strong image. It's mainly a task of continuously reframing and changing your view point. Thanks to the gray weather the lighting was very flat. This gave me room to enhance contrasts in Lightroom and add gradual filters to light the bottom foreground and to darken the top of the building. It basicly comes down to experimenting with the Contrast/Highlight/Shadow sliders to fine tune it. The image is slightly desaturated to give it a black&white feel though I personal like to keep some colors. The only real tweak is the lit tube lamp at the bottom. Using the brush it is brightened to give the impression of a glowing lamp.
