BT Building, South Shields

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 6 June 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Sat on the banks of the River Tyne the BT Building in South Shields handles most of the "customer service" calls for South Tyneside. Locals are already in the habit of referring to it as our "new" Town Hall.
I have already mentioned in the past how this building fascinates me as a photographer with the way it reacts and appears in differing light conditions according to the position of the sun (check out the "tags" on the right).
Although all of my other shots have been HDRs, this is a straight forward slightly underexposed shot processed in Photoshop with the use of a polarising action to finish it.

love the composition... the lines and the ultra deep blue sky make it look kind of like an abstract.

A fascinating building remembering other views you've shown us it seems to have so many different elements to its structure. I like this image Curly the way you've composed it so that the canopy or whatever it is bisects the image is really striking.
