    This is definitely my favourite of your recent works Doug. Great balance in the composition and tones, and the "classis & curves" vs "modern and square" theme plays out well. I'm enjoying these recent ones generally, but this one stands out to me.

    Thanks Tim.
    The round one is the old Adelaide Stock Exchange.
    The building has this distinctive single turret like corner with a conical spire roof.
    It is located down a narrow back street and franked by a number of much taller modern buildings.

    I've tried a few ways to include the building in images but the tight space of its location makes it hard to not get unfaltering verticals.
    I'm pleased with this use of a detail shot though.
