Reaching for the Sky. Contrasts in colour and texture, and very strong perspective, in this wide-angle shot of the Gasteig cultural centre in Munich, Germany. I like the reflected blue of the sky in the windows, which makes the structure – especially on the right – appear empty. And that strong diagonal of green-to-red creeper leading up to the light patch of brickwork. It was taken on my 'Grand Tour' of central Europe in 2008.
Technical: NIKON D300, f=18.0 mm, ISO320, 1/320 sec @ f9.0
