yes the purple building is the Selfridge's building which is part of the Bullring shopping center in Birmingham, U.K. Yes it looks pretty cool, lit up like that.
The view is pretty much the main reason I moved into my flat. I have a corner penthouse with an outside terrace so I am spoiled with a 180degree view of the city. The location is the Abacus Building in Digbeth. I was able to set my tripod up outside and used a telephoto lens with a little over exposure and also used a remote control to reduce camera shake in order to get the shots I wanted.
I'm only a beginner so I hope to take some better photos once I get the hang of things.
