A much maligned building, this is the new HQ for the BT-South Tyneside partnership which will administer many of South Tyneside Council's functions. It is situated on the riverside in South Shields, and for some people it "spoils a good view" (which has only been available for a few short years!) For a photographer, you have to view it as being full of opportunities, which I hope to illustrate for you. One day I will visit at sunrise, these shots were taken at sunset and dusk, but there is ample amounts of glass to utilise for colour and reflection.
This is the front fascia, I found it very difficult to make a decent foreground and was forced by the length of my lens to retreat into St. Hilda's churchyard (I really need a good ultra short lens). Consequently I wasn't over thrilled with this one, I also had the difficulty of coping with traffic, this is a major bus route into the Market Place.
These are all five shot HDRs made in Photomatix Pro 4.
