    Really nice report, thank you for this. I think I will use a similar format with mine. Good to see you are getting some commentors here too, but the replies are a little weird. Anyway, Cheers!

  • I’m amazed how much more we can do with architectural photography in the digital age. You just wouldn’t get images this sharp without it. Great post.

  • nupur, 18 February 2011

    WE NEED TO PONDER ON..WHAT IS REELISTIC..AND WHAT IS REALISTIC IN ARCHITECTURE!!!!buildings just cannot be displayed like anything,which is in contrast to the interiors..if that happens..that is called as “FALSE ARCHITECTURE”

  • I like the bizarre section, some architecture I have not come across before. Although I may be wrong and some of them have been heavily digitally manipulated!

  • jeff, 28 March 2011

    Wow after seeing all these incredible architectural structures one wonders what the world would be like if all the architecture we built was at this level
