As I mentioned in my previous post, I want to show a couple more abstract scenes from inside this new Modern Library.
The library is located in the Surrey, which is a suburb of Vancouver. I live in Surrey, so its only a few minutes drive to my home.
I had to use my extreme wide angle lens here, and I also had to bump up the ISO to 800 or 1600, so perhaps there may be some noise in the photo.
This large skylight in the ceiling was just begging to be photographed with its long lines and curves.
Please take a look at the WS for another view.
I could easily post 6 main photos on TE, but I don't want to bore people with the same subject over and over. Therefore I'll add them to the WS.

This architecture's jewel really deserve yet another POV from its interior.
I realized how the lights from above prevailes all around the big and unique hall.
Scaled well by the figure at the stairs.

You just have to raise your camera with your ultra wide angle after taking yesterday post to get the ceiling with its rounded shapes. The few people at bottom give life to your picture.
My best regards

Bonjour, cher Craig,
Une bibliothèque très contemporaine et qui se prête à la photographie.
Bravo pour cette présentation très originale et bien pensée.

My immediate response to your photograph was that it appeared as if a huge lid had been opened, revealing the lower floor where the people and racks can be seen.
It also has a strong resemblance to a space ship!
It's wonderfully futuristic and composed in such a way as to emphasise this fact!
Have a good day,

The angle of view and the use of the wide angle lens emphasises the geometric lines of the architecture, The light is well handled with no real sign of noise in this image.

You’re lucky to have an extreme wide angle lens for this opportunity. I know how difficult this extreme photogenic situation are to be photographed with our normal lenses for daily use.
Fortunately, with the technique of the modern camera ISO 1600 isn’t a real problem anymore as excellent picture shows.
Certainly a place that never will bore me.
Have a nice day

Your two additional pictures care for a perfect architeure view.
Indeed truly modern library.
You create depth and perspective.
An excellent composition and lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

A very interesting modern interior.
Library makes impression.
Good frame and composition.
I like light and colors.
holmertz (59750) 2017-03-16 8:09
Seeing this building I easily understand that you found yourself a new playground. There are lots of interesting curves here, as well as what looks like smart ideas for lighting up the building. But did you borrow any books? ;-)
Hansaphotos (8739) 2017-03-16 8:21
Another striking shot from this interesting building. I googled the builing the building and found out that it opened in 2011. And you waited all these years to show us?
I guess it`s often like that - what we got rigt outside our door we stumble over and forget, maybe because we think that it`s so close so we can always visit, we`re not i a hurry? Anyway, thanks for showing us now!
Loveley details of the ceiling. A lot of intresting details. Also the s-shaped bookshelf, as seen in the WS, is very interesting (remember it from FB as well). Very good use of the wide angle and excellent light management. Excellent! Thanks.
rychem (43332) 2017-03-16 9:31
Great architectural details, it is really a beautiful and modern library with bright rooms and fantastic architectual ideas
worldcitizen (9452) 2017-03-16 10:00
Thanks for more cool shots of this amazing library. The skylight in the main photo is great, but I really like the WS view looking down at the curvy bookcase and the funky stairs. It's a great idea to have benches built in next to the steps; people always want to sit on stairs for some reason!
GyurMaster (7611) 2017-03-16 11:10
I'm not feel bored because of these photos, they are both excellent portrayals of this amazing building. Maybe I would have turned them into BW, but it is my personal opinion and tastes differ.
cornejo (47266) 2017-03-16 11:25
Hi Craig, very good pictures of these interesting compositions with the interior of the modern building, very well captured in these beautiful images, with good sharpness, depth, light, color and quality. Great and interesting works perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Another nice picture from interior Modern Library.
Perfect captured,nice colors and good sharpness.
Good work, fine presentation.
ricardomattos (8327) 2017-03-16 17:52
I really like this type of photo and here you show us a beauty of interior architecture. I liked these rounded shapes and graphisms as well. Very well thought out how to take advantage of natural light as well.
npecanhuk (78913) 2017-03-16 18:32
Very interesting interior details!
Trulyy beautiful picture!
Special regards to the expsoure, vertical format and composition!
TFS - congrats,
jusninasirun (17527) 2017-03-16 21:22
Amazing wide perspective capturing upper part of this building. Nice details especially the shadow area. Beautiful work and thanks for sharing,
abmdsudi (58260) 2017-03-17 4:42
I like the way you've filled the frame with "a wide open jaw of teething model"
Bet the dentist has nothing but praise for those set of 'white teeth' with cutting edge and thanks to colgate.. he .. he...
So lets go wide, nice catch, well done.
adramad (49962) 2017-03-17 8:11
Spectacular this great architectural work, a beautiful set of forms, this is a modern library, the POV in which you have captured the different levels of the building, it is a winner without any doubt.
Good perspective of the image, very pleasing to the eye.
Colorful, sharpness and brightness are captured excellently.
Very good composition, magnificent presentation.
Have a good weekend.
danos (103212) 2017-03-18 1:08
one more fascinating corner of the modern library brilliant light of the day to spread all around of the interior.The modern design enhance even more the architectural elements of it.
PaulVDV (32695) 2017-03-18 4:06
At first sight I thought it was artificial light on the ceiling but after reading your note I looked better and of course this is light from the sky.
Excellently composed and yes, this library has a wonderful design!
Also both pictures in the workshop could be great main photos.
Best regards, Paul
delpeoples (59846) 2017-03-18 5:57
So you're becoming a booknerd hanging out in libraries eh? You're lucky you were allowed to bring your camera in. It's frowned on here. Love the wide angle lens, the vertical frame and the way you composed the shot which looks like the bottom part of is mirroring the top half. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
Cheers and happy weekend
Tue (43874) 2017-03-18 9:20
You give another great impression of this beautiful modern library here. I really like the lighting here, which was also handled really well here. Good vertical frame as well.
ocskaymarci (2822) 2017-03-18 12:01
This must have been a really difficult choice between this one and the other vertical photo in the WS. Both have beautiful abstract lines boosted by the wide angle. I'm just wondering that as there are not many colours here, how it would look in B&W... Also, in my personal opinion, the other photo is more pleasant to look at as the lines are all leading the eye in one direction. But I really like both. (:
kordinator (15429) 2017-03-19 13:34
Very nice architectures and its interior.
I like fine details and shapes.
Perfect lighting and excellent composed image.
Great photo job.
ChrisJ (118895) 2017-03-19 18:20
Probably the colour combination of brown and white reminds me of a sliced coconut. A good upward pov with a pleasant, translucent light from above. Good sharpness and framing too. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (29668) 2017-03-30 22:10
Alright, go wide, young man! (You're already as west as you can be.) I love the curves and whites shown in this frame. My bar for abstract is very high, so I would not call this abstract since I can still tell what I'm looking at. But it's getting close, well done!
I am glad you decided to post this as the main photo. The workshop one you also considered is similar to the previous post you had from this place.
