...the walls are crooked and you should have removed the lines overhead...
Hahaha, just joking (I did read your comment!). An excellent capture of a bit of important history here, and hope to see it one day myself. Thanks for the excellent background story too. Well done!

Another good photo,
your photos are a photography-class for me,
You have chosen good angle,
And nice perspective,
Sharpness is good,
But it makes me do a mistake!!!(crooked buildings),
shadows and lights are good too.

Excellent cityscape, with special attention to the ultra modern building. Very nice detail, colors and excellent warm lighting. Informative note!

good balanced tone
Now this should be interesting to see as there was no Federation Square when I was there! However, sounds like the place to go regarding info on what to see and do!
Great POV as we can see some of the tall & "new" buildings in the background.

Hello Janice - a Kiwi in Melbourne?
Hope you did at least also visit some of the beautifull National Parks around the capital.
Yes - the new face of the city polarizes and I bet the main intention of the ones who decided the radical change simply was:
be different. Somehow they have emanaged to be different from everything - sometimes even different from good taste. But - this is only my opinion about Federation Square and its surroundings. Fantastic note. TFS Janice. Greetings from a cool August in Germany (22°c)

Futuristic! Looks like a computer model of a future square.

Very nice photo of this crooked building :)))
This is a very nice photo to present us this square with a great colors and lighting. I like this POV with this wall leading us to the right to discover the rest of the square. Very well done.

Carlo beat me to the comment I was going to make :).
It has been about 35 years since I have actually been into the CBD of Melbourne. Back then it was just another dirty, noisy city. Excellent photo with a variety of interesting angles, busy, bright and colourful. TFS,
Kinda busy but I like it and I'm glad you didn't try to do any PS "magic" on this image, very brave of you to leave stuff in and challenge us. Hope you had a good holiday.

Looks like Spiderman House (LOL!)
Indeed an eye catching building. I am sure , it will be the source of a lot of contractidory opinions in various public forums in Melbourne (*_^).
At least , No Tourist can miss it!

Hello Janice Dunn,

It's very popular place.
Especially with different multicultural exhibitions.
Must say I am in tow minds on whether I like the design. Yes, I do, and while I do not have the urge for "vertical" lines to be "vertical" this just seems to be rather disordely. Patterns without a pattern. Or something to that effect. It gives the impression of being unfinished. But that does not detract from your photo which shows the contrast of the building with the more conventional ones to the right. Definitely worth points from me.
