It pays to look up. I thought this wispy cloud looked like candy floss as it tries to attach itself to the hi-rise. I attended a photo meet-up in downtown Vancouver on Saturday that was led by an architect / photographer so not only did we get to photograph some of the architecture but we heard about the reasons for the design.
This is one of those occasions when you would never consider adjusting the distortion of the verticals. The multiple buildings fill in the space in the sky to perfection.
Good thinking about the clouds. A unique interpretation of the theme.
it sure does pay to look up. This is a very strong image with a very delicate touch. I just love the reflections and I have to agree with Kath that the vertical distortion is perfect here. I really like that candy floss, as you call it. Is that the same as cotton candy? Great image and a wonderful interpretation of the theme.

Yes Candy Floss and Cotton candy are one in the same.
I love clouds and you have captured this candy floss cloud in a position that I have never seen before. The contrast with the hard steel and glass buildings really emphasizes the delicacy of the cloud. It is a great and unique contribution to the theme. HLJ, Patricia
I have been pondering how I will ever choose among this, the golden iris and the dancer.
The vertical lines of the skyscrappers are converging, letting only a small place for the clouds. Moreover, we can distinguish some reflections in the windows which act as mirrors. A goo study of the blue color
Definitely the cloud :-) Really great how it sort of goes around building, somehow it looks like it wants to have a look "who is working". Great image, Phil, love these blues and the reflections "building in the building".
