Hi all,
on Wednesday I came bit early to the work and I took the opportunity to have a little go at this modern shopping center with my 10-20. Here are few examples:

Great series- I think there are some really well-done abstracts here. You must have gotten lucky that there were no people there, even despite the early hour.

Thanks Adam. It wasn't luck though, careful planning instead. The shops open at 10 (my including) and I was there at910am

Good shots.

I'm surprised they let you photograph in there. In Australia Westfield are real Nazi's about allowing photos to be taken within their malls, especially if you are using a big scary DSLR. I've even had security guards come up and stop me taking photos within a Westfield mall when I was just using a point and shoot. Photography is expressly forbidden.

Of course I have managed to sneak of dozens of shots within Westfield malls all over the place, but always very discreetly.

As someone who doesn't get many opportunities to photograph modern architecture or large buildings, your series is an inspiration. Beautiful abstracts. That Sigma would seem to be a great lens -- bright and clear.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the opinions!
And yes, I am bit surprised myself that no security guard has approached me yet. Well maybe it makes difference that I work there

I don't know why... But something about #2 just grabs me, really liking it.
