The architecture is not to my particular taste, but it certainly stands out under the pleasant evening light. I like the point of view; the rippling waters of the pond and the water jets help relieve the austere lines of the background building. Good colours and sharpness.

You're capturing well tgis place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the theater with the modern architecture and the pool with the fountain in courtyard. The light is managed well and it's good at arrangement. And, the thick clouds dyed to blue make a presentiment of a storm.

Hello Ike, this one is excellent compo, great management of light, very good details, nice colors, but what I like the most is the light on the water jets and the dynamism that they give...well done...

The wideness of the pond is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the architecture of the building. The evening light is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

the lighting is so much different from your previous Karlsruhe picture! Here it has a marvellous intensity and favours the presentation of the building effectively. Your composition is great, the depth and balance you've created within the frame are superb. I love the strong contrast and the substantial colours as well as the freshness and intensity of the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

A grand modern building, reflecting 20th century aesthetics. Your POV is well-thought out, I like the fountains in the foreground with the sculpture right in the center. I think you have some room to lighten shadows some more, I experimented and it brought out the pedestrian as well as the biker pushing his bike on the left.

you´ve found really an excellent perspective to capture the scene!The water in the FG makes nice opening to the "main"scene.I like also the combination of this moody light and still excellently saturated colors,which work well together for so successful end result of your work.
Wish You a nice weekend

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Bâtiment résolument contemporain. L'architecte a su édifier un bâtiment convenant parfaitement à l'environnement (ou inversement).
Belle réussite photographique.
Très bonne journée.

The spouting fountains, with their crystal droplets, make a really strong contrast with the very straight, vertical construction of the building. You have, also, achieved good lighting contrasts.
Good guide lines move us easily from the f/g to the m/g and beyond.
It is such a pleasure to have an opportunity to photograph after a day that has been grey and rainy!
Have a lovely Sunday,

I liked the contrast of the white shapes of this modern building against the stormy sky ahead. nice details to enjoy and good use of the fountain in FG. TFS.
mirosu (8022) 2013-08-25 3:55
You've captured the theatre building in superb light. I like the composition with the water pond in front, creating an excellent positive space. There is also excellent light an color contrast here. Well composed, peaceful photo. Well done. Greetings, Miro

After the storm the sun to help you to take a creative capture with the sparkling water , the not very interesting building and the dark blue sky at the BG
danos (78036) 2013-08-26 0:30
nice the view as the presentation of the Baden state theater with the foreground pond with the fountains to make the image even more effective.I like the excellent light and colour management as the clarity of the image.
Have a good week,Danos

the theater itself is not as impressive I would say but you have captured this place at the incredible light with well lit foreground and amazing dark sky behind.
This may the scene very attractive,
Didi (51253) 2013-08-27 9:20

What a wonderful picture with splendid depth . Excellent light
Also modern building make this image attractive.
Nice composition. Colors, contrast are excellent. Very well done.

Superb POV that offers a beautiful view of this modern building, cutting-edge design, I like the frame with the fountain in the foreground, the building stands exceedingly light in that sky so threatening, so intense that tone of clouds, gray-blue.
Magnificent lighting and sharpness very good to recreate the image.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good night.
jcpix (6504) 2013-08-27 21:14
Ahhh yes, that ideal moment of natural and warm sunlight. I love what it has also done for the sky, creating a distinct blue tone throughout the clouds. Well controlled exposure that has kept the highlights from being blown out. I'm quite drawn towards the building material and its hard shapes and long lines in all directions. The foreground fountain adds a touch of motion and liveliness against the rigid architecture. You've timed this well to bring out all of the sharp detail with help from the sun. :) Certainly looks like a nice place to admire this modern design. Nicely put on display. Have a great day ahead.
