the geometric angles and shapes in this shot are not to be believed. i absolutely love the angle, as it allows you to capture the details of the windows, roof and tracks. one suggestion would be to decrease the brightness of this shot b/c it looks a little washed out.
Shanti: Thanks Nicole. I also thought it might be a bit too light, but then I did like the pastel colors (it was a kind of cloudy pale day). Until I get a decent monitor, I'm not seeing the colors and light accurately. Also, since the details of bricks, stones, etc can still be seen, I guessed it wasn't really that "washed out". But I will try it a bit darker and see. Thanks!
Your right, there the yellow on the roof, and the red door and windows..well done..
Shanti: Those are the pastels I like in this...

It reminds me of something sad. or dangerous but I can't pinpoint why. teh colours are awesom.
Shanti: I like when a photo triggers the unconcious. I also feel something like you describe when I look at this... thanks for pointing it out, Alida.

I like the composition although I feel you could have cropped out the top edge of greenery as it is very slightly distracting. The colour combinations and patterns and textures are very appealing. Good stuff.
Shanti: Thanks for your comment... I agree re the crop, and did want to remove the greenery at top, but didn't want to lose too many of the roof windows. Could come down a bit, though, so I'll work on it.

like the washed-out effect here. seeing you other pics, i would say it comes from using the sharpening tools and the monitor colour profile. I agre with BeakerSt about cropping. Do you have more of these? would be great to see them.
Shanti: i wish i understood the lingo... sharpening tools? i don't think i did anything like that. so far my edits are limited to crop, auto-balance, a bit of light adjustment, oh and yeah, solarize. but as i said before... just wait til i get PS.

i started to crop this again, but can't bring myself to cut off the roof windows. i was thinking if i had better softward, i'd select the triangle of trees and fade them way out.

maybe i'll go stand on that bridge again and frame the shot better!

thank you, jc!

great textures..i'm an architect by day (superhero by night) so i really do appreciate there is something very intriguing about industrial buildings. i particulary like old railways and viaducts
Shanti: thanks urbanknit... you know textures! yeh, i like the cityscapes too. my artist friend here has been encouraging me to go out and shoot, and i begin to really see things in this city that i hadn't noticed. we had a nice day on Hardbrücke, and i fell in love with the rail lines, buildings, graffiti, etc. hopefully can post more of those in future. thanks for viewing and commenting!

hi there, try rotating the pic 6-10 degrees to the left, making the rear part of the windows coincide with the pic's top edge. then, crop again... if it doesn't work, i guess the train station will be there waiting for you.
