Continuing with a walk around Windhoek and hoping to show images not usually seen on TE, this is a shot taken outside the National Art Gallery of Namibia. The gallery houses a permanent collection of Namibian art, which represents historical, contemporary and post-independence work.
Currently the exhibition “Land Matters in Art” is on show.
Land Matters in Art is an initiative encouraging artists to have their say about land matters and land reform in Namibia
In September last year the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) in collaboration with the Ministry of Lands and Resettlement, invited local artists to participate in an artistic dialogue on land and land reform in Namibia. After more than 270 artworks by over 100 artists were submitted, a jury of experienced artists and representatives from various institutions selected the best artworks.
For more information on the exhibition please see http://www.land-matters-in-art.com/2012/09/background-information/

la forza delle tue foto è il colore e questa non fa alcuna eccezzione.
Interessante e piacevole anche la contrapposizione tra forme tondeggianti e linee e forme squadrate.
Sempre eccellenti saturazione, contrasto e nitidezza.
Complete le note a corredo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hello Rosemary,with all of the vibrant colours this is a real eye catcher,combined with the graphic shapes in an imaginative composition it`s full of impact and interest,a bit like the exhibition itself I imagine.
Best wishes Les.

I have to commend you here for the attempt, first of all, to push the TE envelope a bit... a really successful attempt with this shot, in which you're using the advertisement itself in your composition. Sounds like a fascinating exhibit, and of course especially for a country like Namibia land quality and land reform is a crucial issue. Thanks for the link, which gives us a little look inside.

La lumière du moment saturant bien les couleurs mais surtout ton sens de la composition donnent beaucoup d'attraits à cette photo réalisée à partir d'éléments qui ne semblaient pas spécialement photogéniques au départ.

Excellent density and lighting contrasts with good graphism and sharpness. I like the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red facade of the wall. Good control over perspective and well framed and composed. Have a nice weekend!

That looks a bit messy and wouldn't be a first choice for a subject for most photographers. But the strong deep saturated colors and the fine graphical elements makes for an attractive shot still.
have a good weekend

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image qui fait que les éléments extérieurs poussent vers l'intérieur à cause de l'effet de lentille.Les couleurs sont franches et bien saturées.

This sounds likea wonderful exhibition, did you go inside? You have certainly created a unique capture, and one that I don't think many would see as you have here. The shapes and lines, and the beautiful colour contrast of the red and oh so blue are really beautiful. I am very envious of that blue sky :)
Have a great weekend
