Good Morning all,

This is a simple shot from a building with an innovative and modern architecture, and I like the black smoke textured glass surface against a perfect blue sky. In this picture, I tried to capture the double beauty of this building by choosing a POV which gives a perfect mirror-reflection of the part of building.

To get blue sky in Hamburg is a "dream" and in order to capture the beauty of such architecture against a dreamy sky is a dream indeed :)

Therefore, I am submitting this shot in the Friday's theme "dream". Better late than never!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Kind regards,

Hi Paras.

I like the angle adopted here, it takes a moment to see the reality of this building with all of its wonderfully smoked glass and reflections. The dark to light gradient from th ebottom also adds much delight here, tfs

Guten Morgan Paras,

Your contribution to the Friday's theme is genuine. During winter, blue sky is literally a dream in Northern Germany. And you've beautifully caught this image from itelligent selection of the PoV. Excellent composition my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Vielen Grüße,

Hi Paras,
Yes, a dreamy atmosphere of this ultra modern architecture and reflection. I like the symmetrical presentation. A very well lit capture with wonderful contrasts to please the eyes.
A worthy entry to the theme.
Well done.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Hello Paras,

Hi Paras, very creative contribution to the friday Theme - the title fits perfectly, it took me a moment to figure the reality out.
I agree with Inaam, this blue sky at this time of the year in Hamburg is unusual !!!
Thanks for sharing - herzliche Gruesse Monika

I like the composition and good contribution to Friday's theme. Love the abstract images from the reflections. Good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Paras, this shot is a bit of a riddle as I try to make sense of it!
The reflections have made a very interesting pattern, like different coloured diamonds.
Top marks for spotting this, and a good entry for the dream theme.
Tfs, regards Jean.
