Artist's Description

I took this shot from the Southbank concourse about six weeks ago. The sky was a flawless blue and – as often happens – I was struck by the complementary colours high above my head.

Because I shot this at a full focal length of 300mm, I was able to capture an unusual view of not one but two Melbourne skyscrapers.

Even though the windows in the IBM building (on the left) are square, they took on a strong diagonal aspect because of where I was standing in relation to the two buildings. And, as a continuation of the geometrical theme, the patterns of Eureka Tower’s facade (on the right) appear as distinctive rectangles.

By shooting this tight composition, it looks as if I have divided a single frame into three disparate elements, yet all three of them combine to bring you a single, familiar Melbourne sight.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F8, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 300mm.
