This building has always caught my eye - it's location is on a motorway off ramp, which is kind of tricky photographically - but today I got up early enough to take photos without fear of traffic. Anyway, it always seems so unexpected and stuck in the middle of nowhere - I like it.

Any hints, tips, constructive criticism or comments are welcome and appreciated.

Yes, the getting up early had more advantage than facing less traffic . . just look at that wonderful light ! The building has a kinda railroad look about it - so much so, I was looking for a track !

@Ronnie 2¢: Hi Ronnie :) Yeah the light was great - I wish I'd got there a bit earlier - it would have been even better. Thanks for the visit!

Oh yes Auckland traffic can be a bit of a challenge. Well done for making the early trip - great photo.

Stunning sky, beautifully captured -- the sky was the same shade of blue here today too (in Nelson).

Great light and colours here, but perhaps a bit less foreground would improve the photo? How about a 1:1 cropping?
