A magnificent moden building with impressive three cylindrical pillars. Shining chromenickle coating, reflecting the surrounding's.
Good photojob done, clear image and fine light managed.

Budynki te przypominaja mi tloki silnikow spalinowych, tylko za dużo maja rowkow na pierscienie:)
Super kadr, wspaniale kolory i doskonala ostrosc.

Krzysztof Witaj, very good and interesting POV to take this good picture of this interesting modern building, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Excellent and interesting job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this good work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

This really stands out, the thumbnail grabbed my eye as soon as I opened the gallery. Beautiful metallic sheen from the whole image, and filled with wonderful reflections on the objects in the foreground, while in the background we have such a beautiful piece of towering architecture.
The glint of sunlight reflecting like that makes a really beautiful inclusion in your shot. Really nicely done, a fantastic futuristic scene.

Hello Krzysztof - A superb collection of reflective surfaces here and a bold composition too. The curved cylinders form a beautifully crisp counterpoint to the angular lines of the building which towers above them. I like the cool colours which are subtly 'lifted' by the warmer reflections in the cylinders. I like the star burst too. Beautiful clean piece of work. Warm regards Rosemary

a striking architectural shot this, it looks like a shot of some pistons in the T/nail but is superb full size. An amazing building and your capture/PP makes it look magnificent. Perfect and compelling imagery!
Regards - Brian.

What a strange construction. Looks like a scene from a giant gas station where those three cylinders are like giant gas pumps. Anyway, this interesting modern architecture looks very cool, and you have captured it beautifully with this nice composition. A fine upwards POV where you cleverly includes a bit of the roof to close the compo nicely. Also fine effect of the reflections in the three cylinders. Splendid work! TFS.
Have a nice week.
Best regards, Erling

Fantastyczna modernistyczna architektura - wyglada jak obrazek z odległej przyszlośći. Odbicia w stalowych, błyszczacych kolumnach są wprost niesamowite. Przepiękny obraz w rewelacynej jakośći. Powalajaca kompozycja.

this steely feel is just super! Stunning light and contrast spiced up with some graphic reflections.
Amazing hi-tech work, love it.
Romano46 (15756) 2013-05-28 11:20
una nitidezza eccellente balza subito all'occhio in questo bello scatto.
Ne derivano riflessi perfetti e colori netti e puliti che esaltano il soggetto.
L'incrocio di linee e di curve e ben disposto nella composizione ed il taglio deciso e verticale esalta al meglio il contrasto.
Un ottimo lavoro che, a mio parere, avrebbe dato un ottimo risultato anche in bianco e nero.
Complimenti per l'eccellente esecuzione.
Ciaoe e buona serata

Your HDR work produced an incredibly crystal clear result with this one, and boy does it stand make it stand out! The sharpness and clarity looks realistic...I don't know how you do it, but don't stop. :) The most impressive thing about this is that you've managed to show us the same buildings, but with completely different results which has made each picture stand on its own merit. In fact, if I hadn't been following this series, I wouldn't even realize it was the same...every image has its own distinct quality and personality. Excellent work once again, and I especially enjoy the bonus effect of the starburst reflection just below where the shadow is cast on the support. Great lines and shapes from this new angle. Thanks for another intriguing view.

przepieknie wykonales to zdjecie tej nowoczesnej architektury. Niesamowita kolorystyka, ostrosc jak zyletka jak rowniez odbicie. Podoba mi sie punkt widzenia. Super zdjecie I robi wrazenie ta kompozycja. SUPER. Moje gratulacje.

The Crane buildings of Cologne look extremely futuristic in style.The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect POV too.Excellent light and colors. Thanks for sharing this good work.
abmdsudi (36444) 2013-05-29 7:31
This is amazing combination of unusual buildings-architectural contrasts with the spectacular shiny 'pistons' being the main star of the show. I love the juxtaposition in a nicely composed shot, i think one of the most flattering I have ever seen, it's full of lines, patterns in great color tone, the reflections and the way the light is playing on it. Indeed it's a great looking modern architectural shot with awesome abstract effect. Presentation is spot on, Congrats, TFS
rychem (16566) 2013-05-29 8:18
Te budynki są dobrym przykładem wykorzystania starj architektury przy nowych konstrukcjach, a Twoje cale zdjęcie az błyszczy, efekty swietlne i odbicia są doskonale
ktanska (23448) 2013-05-29 10:02
Clear geometric forms and shiny surfaces look great, and blue sky reflections give cool feeling. Close and wide upwards angle works well.
rbassin (15098) 2013-05-29 10:26
une superbe photo d'architecture;
le rendu est trčs bien fait avec la lumičre excellente et les reflets

Another perfect capture from Cologne with very good grapical effect.
A typical contemporary art of photography.

Witaj dear Krzysztof
Wow these are some impressive skyscrapers, such unusual shapes, textures and perspectives. I love the light, it's been well handled and the colours are superbly rendered.
Thanks for sharing, have a happy day

Ciao Krzysztof, great POV on fantastic buildings, fashinating reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Une architecture ultra moderne a la fois géométrique et graphique, intéressant avec les trois formes cylindriques, les reflets et couleurs sont superbe
ACL1978 (7327) 2013-05-30 18:26
What an incredible building, Krzysztof, and what a crystal clear shot of it! It almost looks like a still from a CGI movie here, it's gleaming so perfectly. The sun blossom is expertly placed and the whole shot is at such a great angle here; you've composed this one expertly to really emphasize the incredible shine of the place.
chrisvek (6997) 2013-05-30 22:54
That's an awesome capture with amazing mirroring and so wonderful lightning usage.Very good lightning usage and perfect outdoor amosphere.Amazing POV too.
I wish you all the best
danos (80977) 2013-05-30 23:38
very nice the view of the Crane buildings of Cologne that looks so impressive taken from this POV.I like the excellent light and colour management as the clarity of the image.The reflections on them complete perfect the whole scene.
Have a good weekend,Danos
annjackman (16861) 2013-05-31 0:08
I like this very much. The sharp reflecting surfaces are clean and modern. I particularly like the viewpoint with the darker roof holding the picture together. Really excellent image.
Kind Regards, Ann
jhm (131986) 2013-05-31 4:32
The curved cylinders form a beautifully crisp counterpoint to the angular lines of the building which towers above them.
Also the reflection care for a surprise.
Sharpness and clarity be superb, also colours and perspective.
Nice presentation, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Niesamowita architectura znowu pod ciekawym katem. Bardzo dobrze zrobiony subtelny HDR i sliczne kolory.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milego weekendu

Spectacular and very bright capture of this fantastic silver,very very great talking about the perspective,the 3D effect,the details and the light reflections,not seems an HDR,you work very very well! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
emka (68788) 2013-06-01 21:09
cześć, fantastyczne zdjecie, pokazałeś ten budynek w niezwykle atrakcyjny sposób. Ze zdjecia trudno sie zorientować o co w tym szystkim chodzi. Zaczęłam szukać w Googlu i zorientowałam sie, ze ja już to widziałam, na moim własnym zdjęciu :). Ja te żurawie widziałam płynąc statkiem po Renie, a więc z oddali, i nie byly jeszcze gotowe. Te cylindry u Ciebie wydaja sie zaskakujące, ogromne, a tak naprawdę są małe. Bardzo efektowna kompozycja, chociaż sam obiekt niezbyt mi się podoba.
adramad (33650) 2013-06-02 9:36
This composition is really fabulous, stunning the mix between the actual vision and reflexes, also the merger of blue and silver creates a fantastic vision, is a masterful job for which I congratulate you.
Very good the management of the brightness and sharpness, to enjoy all the details.
Enjoy the weekend.
All the best.
macjake (49384) 2013-06-02 13:54
wicked shot here my friend
I'm absolutely taken back by the silver and chrome, it really makes the scene doesn't it!
and the top area is pretty darn cool too! reminds me of the architecture in Las Vegas, makes me want to go!!
see you around
s_lush (16130) 2013-06-04 2:43
These complex of modern-style buildings has been captured by you with well-balanced composition, beautiful optical effects, nice colors and perfect quality. Excellent presentation of such a wonderfully designed part of Cologne!
mjw364 (6522) 2013-06-07 2:07
A clear sharp shot with a great POV . Great reflections and lines make this a compelling composition. Very clean HDR too.

bayno (18340) 2013-06-10 11:27
great shot, looks like a futuristic photo, very nice the cut and tones, including those of the shiny metal and its reflections, I also really like the color contrast, super sharp...nice job and edit...
serp2000 (35892) 2013-06-16 6:13
I like your creative idea, sometime the modern urban landscapes give us so amazing and interesting patterns, compositions... Good captured! Perfect quality! TFS!
PaulVDV (19395) 2013-06-24 10:49
I missed this one. Wonderful clarity and metallic shine combined with a dream of a blue sky.
Excellent composition. High quality picture!
Best regards, Paul
pyffepa (625) 2013-07-24 2:06
A wondeful picture, so sharpened.
The objects in the foreground are similar to pistons, could it be the engine of the cranes ;o)
ourania (22868) 2013-08-12 13:14
what a creative and fascinating point of view that makes a work of art out of the shapes, textures and colours of the marvellous architectural scenery. A magnificent play of geometries, perspectives, reflections, transparencies, neutral, cold and warm colours. It's a real visual feast, one of those whose charm and wonder never end. Exceptional work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
limielski (2609) 2013-08-14 14:51
Niesamowita budowla! Wybrałes kapitalnie POV. Twoja kompozycja bardziej przypomina sztuke abstarkcyją cos a la futuryzm. Znakomicie wygladaja refleksy, odbicia i ten niebieski kolor nadajacy całości harmoni. Super!
Energysavingelk (855) 2013-10-25 7:48
what a dupilicity of events: I'm also active on www.fotocommunity.de, where my friend Thomas Reitzel has published B&W photos of this very subject recently...
In your case, I would point out the uncommon perspective (most of the photos I've seen were taken from the other side) and a very good light management. May the fact that you shine up with one of the three featured images on the first side help you to receive much honour (well deserved)!
seb1lopez (187) 2013-12-08 1:05
I am not fan of big buildings pics, but your ones are different and well done... in this one, the sharpness, the pov, the light, everything is perfect, and it gives a strange feeling because we are lost in the architectural lines...
