Part of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex redesigned by Santiago Calatrava for the 2004 Olympic Games held in the capital of Greece.
It’s not part of any sport’s venue and reminded me of L’Umbracle in Ciudad de las Artes y las Sciencias in Valencia – though this one is curved and the one in Valencia is straight purpose seems to be the same, play with shadows…

bellissima composizione, mi piace molto.
Il gioco di luci e ombre č fantastico, grazie anche all'architettura di Calatrava.
Ma il bambino con la bici č una nota artistica molto importante, grazie anche ai suoi colori.

I really like the use of shadows and space in this photo. The patterns on the ground are great, and they are even stronger because there is only one person walking across the frame(the tiny person sitting down is too small to disturb the scene in my opinion). I also like the bit of architecture that you added. Very nice! :-)

Great eye for taking such an interesting and original shot of this well-known place! Really like it! The play of ligh and shadows made the scene spectacular. Very well done.

I think this is an excellent composition, very artistic and elegant. The metal constructions and their zig-zaging shadows create an interesting pattern, getting even better because of the fine curve of the "street". The boy with the bike provides colours and creates a deeper interest in the view. You placed him very well away from the centre. The light is well used and the colours are very good.

Hallo dear Maja
What an impressive graphism you have captured here. The little boy is absolutely surrounded in geometry and a wonderful play of light and shade. You have created such an artistic and eye-catching photo here. Congratulations.

this is a superb street scene, you played well with the shadows and the building pilars, the inclusion of the colored clothed boy is the cherry on the cake.

I didn't know Calatrava worked in Athens too. I really like the patternd formed by the shadow of the architectural structure, in a well composed composition. You waited the right moment to have the young boy well placed.

nice the created texture on the floor from Calatrava's metallic arch found in Athens Olymbic center.The little boy is placed perfect in the frame adding life in the scene.
