The building is home to many finical institutions and other types of offices. Surrounding the the building is a beautiful dancing water garden and is the first phase of the mixed-use development. The second phase of this project includes a second identical tower that is rotated 90 degrees that will have a hotel, restaurant, and shops.
Fountain Plaza Building in Dallas,Texas at Sunset
Last Wednesday a photographer friend and I went downtown to shoot several locations before shooting more Dallas Skyline shots. We heading down there about 45 minutes before sunset and setup on the top floor parking garage in hopes to catch the sunset reflections off the Dallas skyscrapers. Unfortunately we arrived just after the deep sunset passed over the glass windows. But there was still had enough light to catch the buildings in the last remaining sunlight.
About the Image
I shot the above image with a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II SLR Lens before midnight. I then processed the image with Adobe Lightroom and Topaz Clarity to bring out the detail of the buildings at sunset.
