It is pretty impressive, the first 21st century architecture for our little city!

Looks like a durian fruit. There's a building in Singapore that has an envelope just like it that is actually known as the "Durian."
It took me a moment to realize the 5th and handheld shot was looking up at an open elevator shaft. It actually looks like some hi-tech railway system, like a mag-lev!
Nicely done set of photos and thanks for posting samples taken by Samyang tilt-shift.
Love the fact that you are not afraid to try new angles and take frontal symmetrical shots. Invest in a good CPL filter if you have not done so already - it gives you the option of killing the reflection off the glazing or go with what you see. In these examples, the reflections work beautifully, especially in the second shot.
Now that you mention it, it does look like a Durian fruit!
That's great that it took a little looking at to work out what it was. That's what I was trying to achieve with that one. I wish we had a MagLev system here, we have literally only just gotten electric trains!
I looked at CPL's and ND filters for this 82mm lens, they are not cheap at that size! I have some lenses for a Cokin-P holder, which sneaks in the corners of pictures just a tad. So I can use them for now, as long as I allow the extra wiggle room for a slight crop in post.
I actually can't remember the last time I used my CPL filter. I am more inteested in using filters to help stop the glow of sodium street lighting, etc.. for night time photography.
