This artwork is called "Red Fall" and was created by Ingvar Cronhammar in 2002. The openings in the building creates a contrast between the white, almost sterile outside of the sculpture and the blood red lit inside of the sculpture. There even is a waterfall included inside the sculpture which you can see in the photo. The sculpture is 12m high and can be found at the Østervold near the harbour in Randers.
I have been waiting long to post this photo because I could not find any info on it, today I finally did. Here are the links (in Danish though): http://kunstonline.dk/profil/ingvar_cronhammar.php4 and http://www.visitranders.com/danmark/da-dk/menu/turist/oplevelser/attraktioner/monumenter/redfall.htm

Interesting and very impressive construction. This artwork looks like frame from cartoon movie. Excellent colors contrast and sharpness. Very good framing. Well done!

hi, harko! a wonderful image to share here, indeed. i like the converging perspective lines formed by the building and the lamp post. the subject (the art-work) is very interesting itselt. nice colors and lights. TFS.
ps. just curious: can one actually enter the structure (and take pictures from inside)?

This is so weirdly pretty and looks more like a cartoon than a building, especially with the red coming out of the windows and the blue hour sky. The smooth textures and oval lights add to the effect.

a very good composition in colours and with this pyramidal composition with the tilt roof and the lights.

a strange architecture, but the red windows give agood contrast to the blue sky.

An interesting shot Harko, the way the white, red and deep blue all work with each other is quite impressive...those windows seem to jump out at me from the screen.

Ik ken Randers niet zo goed en heb dit kunstwerk helaas niet gezien, maar heb laatst wel een ander groot kunstwerk van Ingvar Cronhammar gezien in Herning.
Dit kunstwerk ziet er prachtig uit. Ik vind de kleuren geweldig, dat rood en wit tegen de blauwe nachtelijke lucht. De compositie is ook uitstekend. Erg mooi werk! Bedankt!

PS : I was wondering about the performance of Alpha 100. I was once interested to buy this one, so just curious.

Excllent graphisme pour cette photo avec un cadrage idéal et une belle expo.

This is a truly spectacular piece of art... not that I really spend time judging art... but I feel that monument really makes for a very good photographical target.
The colours and the contrasts created are just magical.
The exposure looks very good, very clear colours, perfect focus and excellent fluidness to the overall photo impression.
Truly a great photo, thank you for sharing.

This one is amazing, at first glance it looks like an appartment building with just that little something for the story not to be too true, then when you look better you see that it's actually something else, you had obviously here the right timing to have it producing contrasts and shine in the best way... bleu-blanc-rouge... where did I see that before...
Have a nice evening JY

Many thanks for this enjoyable shot - I'm sure the artist couldn't ask for a more flattering shot of the work.
Excellent and quality shot.

Cette composition est remarquable pour mettre en valeur cette œuvre d'art. L'environnement urbain donne l'échelle. J'aime la pureté des lignes et les couleurs.
Bonne soirée !
