Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
This building splits the views of the local people, probably because it is in the shadow of the three iconic buildings at the Pier Head. The Royal Liver Building, one of the three (now called) Three Graces was thought of as being vulgar when it was built, but now is a symbol of the city. I chose a low viewpoint using a wide angle lens to make the most of the shape of this structure.

A superb image of this futuristic looking building, I love the way you've taken it, first class Rod
Great shot Rod. The building is even more spectacular in B&W.
Really interesting perspective,great use of B&W
With the angular lines and in monochrome you have a bold and striking shot Rod, well done.
An impressive mono conversion helped by the simple but strong composition with no distractions at all.
I agree Rod, many examples of new architecture are not well-received at first, but are later accepted as iconic. I like this shot because there is no point in trying to get geometric accuracy with a wide shot like this.
Super shot Rod
Strong, powerful, iconic and many similar words fit this perfectly as does the mono conversion. Very well chosen viewpoint
