DP Now Salon Competition #103: Tall buildings

Hi folks, Thank you everyone for the chance given to me to choose the new Salon. I am very exited to see the result. It is a great honor and a challenging distraction of every day life.
I thought for this salon that I would like to see pictures related to architecture, but with some conditions. Pictures will be taken from tall buildings, meaning by that, for example, more than 6 floors. Preferably , skyscrapers, alone or grouped, encircled, falling, growing (being built), but fulfilling the criteria that the camera has to be pointing really upwards, meaning by that, that you have to point to the sky and have pain in your neck. All kind of lenses are allowed, as well as BW or color. Pictures might be taken on the streets or inside the buildings, but always looking upward too.
This salon will run for two weeks and close at midnight GMT- Sunday 27th of March.
The rules are as follows:
1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/
They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the foto/photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon tread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 800 pixel wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.
2. One entry per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.
3. Entries should be "in line" within the thread (not as links to an image held somewhere else)
4. Comments only on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.
5. After the close the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.
6. The curators decision is final.
7. Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.
8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that "honour" to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.
9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.
10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.
11. Please donībe shy and put yourself to work. It is all about having FUN.
Regards, Horacio

Perhaps not the best but one to get the ball rolling:



The BT Tower in Birmingham (One from the archives this was March 2005).

Might as well throw in mine too. This is the Parliament Building Clock Tower, from the ant's POV, during Ottawa's annual tulip festival. Taken with my old Olympus ultrazoom compact.

Re: DP Now Salon Competition #103: Tall buildings

Here's a refection on the theme. This is Bok Tower, at Bok gardens in Lake Wales FL., reflected in the surrounding pool. I'm not one for rules, so I looked down intead. Steve (fluffy) will recognize it. It is indeed a building, 205 ft tall, with rooms inside and a carillon at the top that gets played during the day as you walk through the park. If you come to Florida, you should see this place.

So THAT'S what it is! I got a pic of that last week but didn't know what it was.

Here's a link to my version if anyone fancies a look
