This August Architecture challenge can be really be taken in any direction.
Details, wide angle, particular architecture design, your home; we want to see it all. With these super sunny days in the U.K, we can create hard light or wait till sunrise or sunset to achieve softer light.

Nothing like a blue sky in the background! But wait, you can also create night photography with long exposures or create multiple exposures.

Chose a building you like and walk and look and take the time. Do the research, bring a tripod and a self-timer. Why do you want to take this picture? What do you want your audience to feel?

We look forward to seeing your submissions.

Tips and Inspirations:

Bernd and Hilla Becher

Hiroshi Sugimoto

The winner of this Challenge is Lisa Shen

Lisa’s image is a beautiful illustration of symmetry. You don’t get much better than this with balance. On an emotional level, it gives a feeling of stillness, space, and reflection. There are many subtle contradictions from long diagonal lines meeting with a point contrasting the softness of the water and the sky, the life shown by the full length of trees compared to a side that is sparse, perhaps reflecting as Lisa comments “the brilliant or bloody”. Excellent image. Congratulations again Lisa.

Lisa’s comment:
This is a photo of one of the four turrets in the Forbidden City with a symmetrical structure. It has witnessed the 600-year history of ancient to modern China, however brilliant or bloody. I would like show the beauty of very traditional Chinese architecture and the very decent history of China.
