Tokyo - Omotesando.
visto che la mia foto precedente del negozio di Prada era troppo scura per i piu', ripropongo qui una vista alternativa, spero piu' godibile dal punto di vista della luce.
(nota ripresa dalla foto precedente)
Omotesando e' una delle zone di Tokyo dove alcune delle firme piu' prestigiose della moda contemporanea hanno i loro "flagship stores" e dove l'architettura moderna sposa la moda e il design in modo molto particolare.
quello che vedete nella foto e' uno degli edifici piu' fotografati di Omotesando - e' un progetto degli architetti svizzeri Herzog & De Meuron e ospita la filiale di rappresentanza di Prada dal 2003.
Tokyo, Omotesando district.
since my first picture of this building was too dark for most of you, let me show an alternative view of the same place - this time I hope to give a better idea of how the glass building looks like from the outside.
Omotesando is kind of a showcase for modern architecture as well as "the" address for contemporary fashion - some of the most prestigious and trendy designers have their stores here. what you see in the picture is Prada flagship store, a project by Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron which opened its doors in 2003. it is also one of the most photographed buildings in Omotesando.

I am always amazed by the idea that you follow strong compositional roots. With a nice technical PP, firm composition and a great eye to see things you always make ordinary things look great. And this is one of the examples of the perfect combination of the three elements. A lot of lines and geometry and architecture.
Have a nice time

As Tushar has put it candidly, that's a pleasant composition which reflects the beauty of the building, in fact much better than the previous Prada shot.
Despite some ditracting black items inside, the geometry is well-captured, and the shades of the stairs, IMHO, are beautiful, to say the least.

...but I would bet that very few of the many photographers get a shot as good as this one. This is really stunning, with a fantastic PoV and excellent placement of the one person (of course dressed in black) in the frame. You have really highlighted the impressive architecture, but also taken advantage of the slight distortions in the foreground windows to create an even more dreamlike scene - a classic reflection on the world of fashion, methinks. regards, thanks, Iain

I love your pattern and good captured moment.

Oh wow Cristina,
This one has it all for me. The effect, the artful play on symmetry and reflection, there is a scene and story hidden here too. Like a B&W dream to me. This is just fanatstic..I love it..:) !

I love your shot in B&W, it is so graphic, so clean, so sophisticated. good work!
yquem46 (38746) 2010-11-29 7:58
Well seen, well done !
Top notch B&W quality, graphic effect of the losanges, excellent position of the person walking down the stairs
Very original idea

A fabuolusly graphic b/w image that I enjoy because of the diamond shapes, the stairs and of course the one figure. Perhaps there is another picture in this one with the right hand side cropped to the edge of the white wall. That would get rid of the small distractions. Nevertheless, a very compotent and enjoyable piece of work. By the way I also liked very much the first picture that you posted (I have just viewed it) - it was not too dark for me. I loved it.

So you followed many persons who were photographing this building! Nice POV, lots of diagonal lines, and moreover a silhouette which gives life to your shot.

Ciao Cristina, ogni tua ultima foto mi sembra sempre la più bella. Eccellente immagine con l'effetto dei vetri meraviglioso. Bravissima!!

Immagine di grande impatto grafico con definizione da urlo.
La presenza umana contribuisce a dare vita e movimento alla scena.

Good evening Christina,
perfect graphic shot with focus on the person going down the stairs. I specially like second stair in the upper part and visible shapes of the glass too. A lot of details and reflections are great to observe. Perfect B&W ...

Hello Chritina - Super multi-layed b&w image. I love the way in some of the diamond shapes,the glass distorts and bends the interior. The repetition of diagonal lines - window frames and stairs makes for a very strong graphic shot. Super. Best regards Rosemary

C'est une photo que j'aurais aimé faire. Le graphisme et la lumière sont au top. Le plus c'est l'homme qui descend les escaliers.
Dans mes favorites !
jasmis (57888) 2010-11-30 12:47
Greet. You are master of B&W urban photos. This one is the proof.
Regards my dear friend.

Vedo che pubblichi sempre altrettante meraviglie.
Che bellissima foto. Mi piacerebbe la mettere nella mia galleria quella. Grande grafismo, sin parlare della luce ch'è stupenda ! Un immagine che verrei bene da un film futuristico.
Qualità impeccabile come sempre.
Da molto piacere la tua fot ai miei occhi.
BennyV (13858) 2010-12-01 7:45
Great how you lined up the stairs completely parallel with the diagonal in the window. I hope you didn't have to wait too long for a person to walk down, because this presence is essential for this shot.
PS: What is Herzog an architect too!? That man really can do anything... ;))
eldancer1 (29361) 2010-12-01 13:46
Simple but effective composition of lines and contrast. Great pov and dof. Well done, tfs.
sultana (2101) 2010-12-06 2:56

Human geometry again, looks like youve been on a mission, oh, i love this one, the best of the series.
i remember a dialogue from the movie, when streep goes.."why is she so late getting my coffee, has she died or something.." the delivery is just fabulous, the subtle twitch in the lips, meryll streep..
macjake (57694) 2010-12-21 3:58
hmmm, where to start with this one.
as a lover of architectural photos, i too, would love to visit this place.
lots of geometry here, lots of composition possibilities.
the photographic mind can go crazy here.
personally, i think its great that you included the man, adding the human element really changes the dynamics. this is a photo that stirs my mind
