I've shot this BT building a few times, always using HDR, because the place fascinates me from a photographic perspective. The BT building near the Market Place in South Shields sits on the banks of the River Tyne and is the customer facing administrative unit that looks after all things for South Tyneside District Council and its residents.
Many people around here hate the building and its design calling it a "blot on the landscape", but for an HDR enthusiast it keeps offering up new opportunities with all of that coloured glass. The dirty bits in the sky are actually snow!
I've managed to shoot quite a few pictures in the past week as Mrs. Curly is feeling pretty well, despite her ongoing cancer treatment. She is having some difficulty in swallowing and eating, but in general she is quite cheerful.
