Well,I have still many,many photos of Santiago Calatrava´s Agora in Athens,so from time to time I´ll just bore you with new one:)
I hope you´ll like this one.I deliberately cut off the lower part of the image to enhance the graphical impact of the structure.

un bianco e nero straordinario ricco di effetti grafici dal notevole impatto.
Ottima la postproduzione e la composizione.
Ciao e buona settimana

Hello Krzysztof ,
I thought that it was the Barajas airport in Madrid . Not the same designer , but very similar architecture . It is beautiful, and provides a splendid graphical subject for the photographer . Good choice of the B&W .
Well done .

Boy, this one is not boring:-) I love the geometric patterns and the small getting bigger curves shown in here created by your POV. Perfect in B&W! Keep posting different angles of this lovely modern bridge.

namaste, an excellent minimal composition of this steel made beauty. Great presentation. I love the graphical impact of this frame. Excellent shot. Tfs.
jhm (131812) 2014-02-10 3:07
Maybe a tip, I would in future also the colour picture place as second picture.
Your black and white picture is absolutely not bad.
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

B&W seems popular today and quite rightly so with wonderful shots like this. A mesmerising mix of graceful curves and lines that takes on an abstract and fascinating artistic quality. Never get bored of images like this Krzysztof, its a stunner!
Have a good week - B.

niby proste ale z pewna niespodzianka na koncu. Luki na pierwszy rzut oka kieruja sie pod tym samym katem, ale potem nagle skrecaja i to dodaje calosci ciekawego elementu.
Bardzo ladna ostrosc i dobry kontrast. Dobra glebia obrazu.
tenretin (1463) 2014-02-10 4:39
Well, well ! it reminds me of some thing. You made a nice graphic and elegant black and white.
pajaran (45488) 2014-02-10 4:57
Lep pogled na metalnu konstrukciju ...
Dobar snimak, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazana konstrukcija.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view of the steel construction ...
Good shot, sharpness and contrast nicely demonstrated construction.
Nice afternoon and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

This makes me smile so much, the repeating patterns and sweeping curves are incredible, and your treatment in black and white has brought that detail out superbly. This is a wonderful abstract shot, and you have highlighted the work of Calatrava beautifully. I must go and look again at his bridge in Dublin and see if I can find a unique angle the way you have on this one.
Beautiful work Krzysztof, thanks as always
SnapRJW (27012) 2014-02-10 5:42
This amazing structure makes a super subject Krzysztof. I like the vertical presentation and the way the graphical lines bend towards the LHS at the bottom of the frame. Fascinating. Warm regards Rosemary
John_F_Kennedy (41888) 2014-02-10 5:43
Fine graphic photo. I like all the line here. Well done.
Giustiniani (907) 2014-02-10 7:44
un bel effet graphique mis en valeur par le choix judicieux du N&B.Superbe photo.
a nice graphical effect set off by the judicious choice of N & B.Superbe picture.

Piękne ujęcie i piękna perspektywa, chyba czarno białe najlepiej oddaje grafizm tej konstrukcji, super
cornejo (25481) 2014-02-10 10:50
Krzysztof Witaj very good picture of this super-interesting plot, very well composed and captured this beautiful image with good sharpness and light composition. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Didi (53297) 2014-02-10 10:55
If I fix this composition more than one minute I'll feel a strange effect in my eyes
Well done for this nice composition
ourania (22722) 2014-02-10 11:06
great play of shapes and patterns, a strong perspective and a captivating rhythm all along the vertical frame. There's a fascinating effect of movement when we scroll up or down the screen, each of the areas of the structure has its own. Definition and monochrome treatment are excellent. I also like the play of light in the distance, in the lower part of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
jcpix (9274) 2014-02-10 18:40
Whoaaa, super funky...I feel like I'm inside a giant Slinky! :) Cropping off the bottom portion definitely ups the graphic impact, and the black & white continues to work its magic. Much like the "Jenga," I like the small section of visible sky at the bottom right corner, giving just a hint of the exterior sky.
Speaking of the sky, if something were to fall from there, this would make for a wonderful grater...or at least it appears like one. If you scroll up and down on the monitor, this whole thing goes into motion, it's a cool illusion. Crisp and clean as always, another excellent finish my friend! Enjoy the new day.
Cheers from over yonder,
PaulVDV (19395) 2014-02-10 19:15
This view reminds me of one of the structures in Valencia but here (in Athens) it is much higher.
Excellent graphical presentation of Calatrava's work.
Best regards, Paul
emka (68576) 2014-02-10 23:56
cześć Krzysztof, MAm jakies zaległości na TE... Nie wiem czy zauważyłeś ale tego samego dnia bylo bardzo podobne zdjecie do Twojego. Ciekawa prezentacja Agory Calatravy. super geometria.
delpeoples (50651) 2014-02-11 3:26
Gidday dear Krzysztof
You couldn't bore us if you tried, this is amazing and I always look forward to your architecture shots, and particularly your Black & White images. Good choice the vertical frame. Excellent POV and perspective. The repeating arches and amazing symmetry make me dizzy. An exquisite composition, well lit and well contrasted too.
abmdsudi (36294) 2014-02-11 3:33
Attractive high contrast shot with graphical-abstract quality consists of amazing repeating strong lines and patterns, so appropriately converted to mono for such a great impact boosting the contrast really well. Indeed an eye grabbing shot in such great depth too and the excellent perspective. The lighting is subtle throughout and so pin sharp. The effect is very appealing and well worth the capture, Congrats, TFS
kasianowak (4104) 2014-02-11 10:57
Nastepne bardzo dobre zdjecie tej nowoczesnej architektury.
Symetria u gory zostaje zaburzona tym zakretem na dole, co wporwadza element bardzo dynamiczny.
marina7 (8017) 2014-02-11 11:32
wow..that's wonderful, you keep amazing me with your graphic shots. This one feels like being inside of a steely spring to me, great job!
ngk (2407) 2014-02-11 15:00
Very beautiful graphic photo. Excellent light management, great perspective!!
macjake (49296) 2014-02-11 16:50
I'm going to have to see this for myself!
For me, the curve to the left is that makes it work just as well as the lines and patterns.
love how it looks up, then bends left - especially when i move the image downard.
very cool effects!
lousat (68539) 2014-02-12 0:32
A great capture of this Calatrava's work,the curves are always inside on his architechtures.You caught very well this fantastic opportunity,creating a magnificent catch-eye with spectacular detail everyhwere,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
ikeharel (48302) 2014-02-12 8:26
Superb taken picture, Krzysztof, with an eyes-illussion when scroll along its space.
Choice of B&W what perfectly matching here, and very good shrpness collected.
Sonata11 (32261) 2014-02-12 10:11
faktycznie mozna poczuc sie jak w klatce. Efekt niesamowity. Wspaniale wykonales to zdjecie i super punkt widzenia. Bardzi mi sie podoba ta praca. Barvo !!!!
RhodieIke (11029) 2014-02-12 13:43
This is awesome, great impact, great visual, love it in B@W.
danos (80945) 2014-02-13 0:35
very nice the creative texture and perspective from Calatrava's construction in the main Stadium during the Olymbic games at 2004.
The excellent light brings out the details as the clarity of the scene.Well done.
adramad (33554) 2014-02-13 7:04
This wonderful composition, with an impressive POV, this cover Agora, which has a nice geometric component also bows give great perspective, disappearing from the left, lovely image of strong graphics.
I love the textures maticey giving B & W.
A high brightness and sharpness.
Have a good evening.
All the best.
Hansaphotos (6329) 2014-02-13 8:21
Elegant composition with a tremendous graphichal effect. No distractions except from a glimpse of some buildings in the lower right corner. Well chosen vertical format and a great subject for a b&w photo. Great work, like it a lot.
Have a nice evening.
Graal (94156) 2014-02-14 1:38
interesujaca architekture, sporo nowoczesnosci w tym zwienczeniu. Tak troche graficznie to wyszlo, w B&W nie traci fota nic ze swej atrakcyjnosci. Dobry temat.
Milego WE zycze.
Cricri (96959) 2014-02-20 9:42
Excellente réalisation, l'effet géométrique est bien rendue, une œuvre artistique super bien réaliser
mcmtanyel (8177) 2014-02-26 21:37
Lovely patterns draw attention in this almost-abstract photo. I like the patterns, I like abstract and this is just my kind of photo.
siudzi (29617) 2014-03-02 0:59
nie wiem, jak mogłam nie zauważyć tego fantastycznego zdjęcia w Twojej galerii... Znakomity kadr doskonale oddający graficzną stronę tej konstrukcji. Bardzo mi się podoba.
Odnośnie Twojego pytania o Shard, to niestety nie byliśmy na jego tarasie widokowym. Może kolejnym razem...:)
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4748) 2014-03-21 2:23
Highly graphical and very captivating. This reminds me of Valencia, Spain. As I presumed, I really love Calatrava's works. I'm a big fan. Great shot!
