Roof of the Sony Center, Berlin. Designed by Helmut Jahn and completed in the year 2000, the Sony Center at Berlin's Potsdamer Platz features this spectacular tent-like roof. I found that I could almost contain it in the frame using the 20mm lens, and I like the detail of the supporting framework and tensioned cables. Inevitably the wideangle lens pulls in the top of one of the buildings at a weird angle, which I feel adds interest to the image by breaking the 'perfect' elipse, and balances the shadow area in the bottom-left corner. However in competition the judge said he couldn't see what it was and thought it spoiled the picture! I first saw the Sony Center at the end of my Grand Tour in 2008.
Technical: NIKON D800, f=20.0 mm, ISO200, 1/250 sec @ f11.0
