FOR this month’s feature, Kirkbymoorside Camera Club has taken architecture was its theme. The six images submitted by members feature both locations closer to home, as well as stunning building from overseas.

Jim Cavanagh - BBC Salford

The image was taken during a productive late afternoo/evening photo shoot in January around Salford Quays, where a wide variety of modern architecture abounds.

Using a Canon 5diii, 24mm lens, at f.16 and a tripod to try to keep the verticals straight, seven bracketed shots were taken between 1/8 to 1/500 second and later combined together to give a HDR composite using Photomatix Pro.

With a full range of details in both the shadows and highlights, this was then converted to black and white in Nik Silver Efex to give the distinctive glow to the highlights.

My only problem was the total lack of clouds - perhaps another day?

Derek Hutchinson - Hotel Pironi, Cannobio

My interest was taken by the pointed shape of this 16th century building located not far from the shore of Lake Maggiore, Italy.

The light was not good but I did not have much time as a very violent thunder storm began a few minutes after I took this image.

Colin Dilcock - Palau de les Arts, Valencia

The image of Palau de les Arts Opera House in Valencia was taken at one end of the building to get the symmetry against the clear Spanish blue sky. The building was opened in 2005 and designed by Architect Santiago Calatrava.

Barrie Tuck - Rialto Bridge, Venice

The famous Rialto Bridge is surrounded by beautiful and interesting architecture. I particularly liked this angle from the canal with the gondola making its way under the bridge.

Andrew Hollins - Hiscox, York

When we all emerge from our hermit-like status and venture out into the sunshine, you might consider a quick diversion to the Hiscox building in Peasholme Green, when you visit York city centre.

The Hiscox building nearly always has wonderful reflections of the lovely properties opposite, but even more intriguingly it has a decommissioned Soviet rocket inside it. How did they get it in, and why?

Julie Cowdy - Manhattan Architecture

The skyline is familiar from television images, but on my first visit to New York last year I wasn’t prepared for the quantity of eye-catching architecture. I headed to the Empire State Building to get this view.

Many of these iconic buildings date from 1930s and display characteristics of the Art Deco style, which I love.

In particular I was impressed by the Chrysler Building (upper left in the photo). Brooklyn Bridge can be seen to the right.

The predominance of blue and pale gold in the image is due to the glass and metal reflecting the sky and water.
