ENGLISH: This is Hong Kong International Airport. I took this photo as I was lying on one of the very comfortable rest beds there, having just landed from Sydney. I had a wait of 6 hours until my next flight to Rome, so needed a rest. By the time I landed in Southern Italy, the one-way trip took 36 hours door to door.
ITALIANO: Siamo al Aeroporto Internazionale di Hong Kong tra voli Sydney a Hong Kong, Hong a Roma, Roma a Napoli. Porta a porta ci vuole 36 ore.

Indeed, the journey to and from Australia is a long one! 36 hours, from Poland it would be the same probably. My longest one way trip was 26 hours (from Warsaw to Easter Island). In the airports there are many interesting graphic opportunities. Nice composition in a bit strange colour.

Les attentes dans les aéroports sont longues mais leur architecture permet souvent au photographe de tuer le temps en réalisant des images au graphisme intéressant comme c'est le cas sur cette très bonne photo.

I like to see the airports architecture, so attractive disign, interesting shapes and technical realisation. (Have you been in Shanghai Airport?) Good graphism, fine composition. TFS!

vediamo quanto ci vorrà da Dubai, il mio volo :P
Mi piace il taglio con soggetto molto grafico.
Leggera sovraesposizione in basso a destra.
TFS! Un abbraccio!
Credo tu abbia bisogno di alcuni OP :P

a beautifully sharp and detailed shot, with a powerful light that brings out all complex array of lines. Excellent POV and composition. A wonderful study of man's modern and sometimes fragile world. Bravo!

What to do during a long wait...good photos!!
Excellent graphic sense, the play of lines and different textures shows a good subject for capture, your point of view choosen and the cadrage are really good for this subject...excellent work...so different from others yours!!
Have a nice day...

A well exposed shot with lovely graphical lines. Very good idea to place the angle between wall and ceiling on the diagonal; it contributes much to the dynamism of the image. Sharpness be superb.
ikeharel (65241) 2011-03-21 5:14
Modern structure well collected, and marvelousely Lisa, you taken this from bench POV...
Good lighting and excelent compo.
Have a nice week ahead.
*** 36 hours on one way...wow...

35 hours to go to Rome is about the same time for me to go to Sydney from Montreal. Nothing else to do then to look at the ceiling trying to sleep.
Have a nice day

Ola Lisa ,
Já estive neste aeroporto quando visitei Macau , interessante este teu ponto de visão com estes reflexos dourados nestes vidros, bons detalhes parabéns!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Your creativity didn't suffer from long flight. Well you had time to look up from your rest bed...
Fascinating collection of squares and triangles on harmonous yellow brown tones.
I have to say I missed such impressions on my Hong Kong stop.

Famntastique grsphisme et image, superbe compo quel effet, quel captage, superbe compo.
Bravo et amitié

Evidente dimostrazione che riesci a fare splendide foto a prescindere dal soggetto.
Questa è una perfetta inquadratura che grazie alle linee geometriche della struttura ha creato un magnifico effetto grafico.
Complimenti mia cara amica.
peppe59 (14551) 2011-03-21 10:23
hai trovato grande geometrie, solo un astuto e attento occhio può reperire queste immagini, complimenti.

Hi Lisa, A wonderfully composed photo with great lines & curves, your POV has been nicely chosen, the light & reflections are both super, overall a nice piece of work, kind regards Wilson.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-03-21 10:57
a very spectacular photo with graphic details, the diagonal composition is effective, superb shot, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hétet kívánok!
sabermonajati (10875) 2011-03-21 11:53
amazing form ,light ,reflect and composition you captured.
macjake (63210) 2011-03-21 11:59
I've always been a big believer in airports, and how they can produce wonderful indoor architecture photos, all we have to do is look around and look up.
such as you did here.
you should play a game, have people guess the number of squares and triangles...not sure what the winner gets though!
love the geometry even as a reflection, its everywhere inside this frame!
Silvio1953 (133822) 2011-03-21 14:02
Ciao Lisa, gran bel POV, splendide geometrie e magmifica luce, ti auguro di farle presto queste trentasei ore di aereo :), bravissima, ciao Silvio
adores (42291) 2011-03-21 18:06
A different one this time :)!
I like the colours and the geometry here, as well as the reflections on the glass! Good idea to frame it that way, that diagonal is perfect!
mauro61 (52855) 2011-03-22 1:16
un lungo viaggio,ma penso ne sia valsa la pena...
Ottima questa inquadratura con le geometrie dell'aereoporto espresse benissimo grazie anche all'ottima tonalità dell'immagine,
dkmurphys (54489) 2011-03-22 1:16
Fine modern detail. The colors are quite relaxing. Good POV, well done.
Have a good day.

Interesting graphical composition with this ultra modern architecture from an 'on your back' POV - sorry! Nice colours and shading. 36 hours is a long time to be traveling - hope you enjoyed it!
abmdsudi (48812) 2011-03-22 7:12
Not bad an idea shooting whilst lying down and you have everything to gain with the ready subject presented right in front of you thus its matter of choosing your pov. This is creative pointing up ant point of view. A very graphical abstract, with beautiful patterns, shapes and repeated lines in excellent light and clarity. Lot of detail and good sharpness, the depth is further enhanced by the converging verticals. Good framing that really makes this stand out. Thks to your keen eyes and well taken shot. Congrats
Mari63 (4085) 2011-03-22 12:39
Ciao Lisa, leggendo la tua nota ho pensato che sarebbe bello essere trasportati come in Star Trek e girare il mondo in meno tempo.
Ciao e un abbraccio Mari
chawax (20048) 2011-03-22 12:42
I love the graphism of this POV. The perspective lines add some depth to the composition. I love too the warm tones. Well done !
mafegan (8624) 2011-03-23 16:30
There is a lesson in this photo - the opportunity to take great shots can be found anywhere - even between long flights! Great graphic detail and interesting reflections. Cheers, Marlene
mkamionka (33685) 2011-03-25 2:52
excellent geometry, I like the variety of diagonals cutting through the frame. The reflections make the effect even more pronounced.
Very well seen and captured.
Have a great evening,
Waylim (25444) 2011-03-25 17:42
It still makes me laugh seeing your intro shot and I still want to wipe that smirk of your face :)
Good time, how many times I had to sit in the airport for hours at a time. That is probably the worst part of travelling, waiting to get on the way. Here you take sometime and opportunity to shoot some nice abstract. I try to shoot air plans, reads, eat, listening to music.
Very nice POV and the result is a rather intesting modern abstract. The POV makes me feel like I was laying donw right next to you :)
DRamos (512) 2011-03-29 9:35
Hi Lisa ..... I'm back in a while to study lol.
Do not stop posting pictures, I had to put the batteries to see them all.
This framing of the terminal is well sought after, even the reflections in the glass are very square. Sure you had much time to have more waiting time, delays are raging.
Here is a good photographer takes gold of the sites where it is. The composition of the only color that we are also very nice indeed.
It goes well, we read over here.

Really well spotted architectural shot, and with beautiful soft colours. So often people run through airports without seeing the wonderful designs around them, this capture shows that we really should stop and take a breather sometimes. Really well seen, and thanks for sharing
