I didn't aware of that, but it is a building.  I've passed by it today.   :)

Akira, I like the composition in 2477, also contrasting human-built vs. natural world is one of my favorite subjects.

Thank you Keith.  The contrast of artificial vs natural always interests me as well.  And, luckily, there are plenty of motifs to choose from here in Tokyo.  :)

Very nice indeed. The composition with strong foreground, the middle layer of leaves and building in the background works really well!

One more vote. That last one have something extra. Opposition in fore\background, calid\cold, straight\multi, nature\manmade... Great contrast all around and visual impact.

   Thanks for sharing it!

Recently, many areas in Tokyo have been renewed, and many new buildings are of interesting designs.  So, I don't seem to run out of motifs.  :)

Indeed ! All of those being very interesting  ;) The last one is "half" rubberneck, as it starts with a slanted element of the facade, allowing for a respite before the verticals. Plus the vegetation, and great framing  8)

As for the last one, I originally tried to shoot the colorful leaves and wanted the building in the background to be perfectly level.

Then I realized it would fit this thread, feeling my neck as rubberized as when I'm shooting dedicated rubberneck images.  :D
