Challenge has finished
Modernist architecture isn't always a popular style, so here's a challenge to show the style at its best. If you're in London you can look for inspiration at the Le Courbusier exhibition - if you're anywhere else, you might be able to find examples of his work, or perhaps a Mies van der Rohe to get you going. Nothing too abstract though - once you can no longer tell it's a building, it's no longer eligible.

I found it funny that the challenge description suggested shooting a Mies van der Rohe, as this was the first thing I thought of when looking at this challenge. This particular building is Westmount Square in Montreal and I shot this last September as one of my first photography school assignments. I like how the mild telephoto compresses these three separate towers into one mass. I also like the glimpse of the sky in the lower-left window.

|Focal length:||48 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/500 sec|
|Notes:||This shot was handheld, and I guess I should have stopped down more and used ISO 200, but the image worked out nice anyways. Also, at the time, we weren't allowed to shoot RAW for school assignments, so this is a camera JPEG worked in CS3. I used levels, curves, USM for sharpening and some local contrast.|
