    Very impressive graphic quality to this with a wonderful combination of the curve with all of the straight lines and squares. I love the color pallet too. Excellent!

Linda said it very well -- and it's so straight! Wonderfully seen, captured and presented, Chris.

Love it! I like what Linda said... I really like that my eye kept going around and around back forth between the warm rich golden color and the graphic lines of square boxes. Very nice EOD!

Thank you all very much... Someday I'll have to go back, out of curiousity, and see what's inside---there are very few actual windows on this building.

My favorite of your June entries, Chris -- I just love the curve with the squares and the unusual pattern of the windows. Title's good, too. Of course I considered several others before settling on this: 'Bridge Seam" which I do think has an intriguing pattern and for which black and white is perfect; 'Geared for Time' which is so clear and crisp and nicely detailed; 'Curves' for its beautiful lines, tones, and sparkle; and 'Love Detail' because it is wonderfully bold and simple. There are others, too, but this will do for now :) Good luck.

You bet--that's just super design, Chris. The arc opposed to the squares and the lines in the windows repeating the lines of the arc, and of course your great comp here--all works flawlessly together to create great interest. Congratulations on the 101 POTD.

Thanks so much everyone! And thanks Kara (who yes, told me so!) for nudging me to resubmit it... It is a fantastic building (there's another 2nd Place winner shot of this building this month!) at which I could have spent a few more hours dreaming up interesting compositions for the geometric patterns...
