Your photos of striking buildings

On Tuesday photographer Timothy Soar shared his tips on taking good pictures of buildings. Thus inspired, Magazine readers have risen to the challenge, and sent us hundreds of photos.

You've sent us holiday snaps, photos taken on mobile phones, images a professional would be proud of, and breath-taking pictures that more than one of you admitted was more down to luck than skill.

We've received photos of cathedrals and ruined chapels, rusting factories and hi-tech concert halls, skyscrapers and shacks.

Your photos of buildings

Ancient and modern, graceful and functional buildings alike have made for some memorable images.

All of which has made it difficult to narrow the choice down to the handful shown in this picture gallery (right). So in accord with Mr Soar's advice in this article, the pictures we've chosen typically feature a quirky detail or unusual light effect, rather than attempt to capture the building as a whole.

Thanks to all who submitted photos. More of your pictures of buildings will be featured on BBC News 24 throughout our Architecture Week.
