    Shooting reflections in infrared monochrome often seems to reveal the light more intensely. On Wednesday we had a cloud-free sky and so I took a walk around Seattle to capture some architectural images. I was looking for that dark sky effect but also had my eyes peeled for reflected light.

    This is the Puget Sound Plaza displaying the reflected light of the newly-constructed (in fact not yet totally complete) Rainier Square Tower, an all glass skyscraper that is the 2nd highest building in Seattle now.

    (Looks like I'm being spied on too!)

    That is an amazing effect and it has created a stunning image. The DSG sets it off a treat.

    Thanks Rob.

    Thanks Pete. The funny thing about those DSGs is that when you're not looking for them they're everywhere, but when you actually shoot photos with the intent getting one in your image they miraculously skedaddle. Very frustrating. :confused:

    That is a striking image, the infrared really brings out the detail in the structure.
