Congratulations for this huge picture with a great framing. This structure is special.

So many umbrellas, I guess it's a form of modern art. And also it's excellent in black and white. Thanks for sharing.
CLODO (30706) 2014-01-07 13:32
A perfect street photography with the queer umbrellas as background.
happy photographic yera!
macjake (57412) 2014-01-07 13:45
very cool looking photo.
We don't see many like this on TE, so its a treat for our eyes. It'll be interesting to see it in full color too. nice to see the ships in the bg too, I almost missed them.
tatadalou (6421) 2014-01-07 14:26
I like this aerial sculpture, which gives a piece of poetry front to the boats coming to the commercial port. B&W treatment adds some more graphism.
npecanhuk (66816) 2014-01-07 15:54
I've seen those umbrellas in other pictures and I've always enjoyed them!
You did an excellent job with them too!
I love your choice for black & white! Vertical format, black & white borders, exposure, level of sharpness, chosen pov and composition truly pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

C'est une très belle composition, originale et artistique. Le noir et blanc est un excellent choix.
carlo62 (34414) 2014-01-08 0:08
ricordo i tuoi precedenti scatti di questa installazione, molto originale e caratteristica, devo dire che il tocco in b&w aggiunge interesse, l'occhio si concentra su tutte quelle linee interrotte dagli ombrelli.
Ottima la presenza dell'uomo.
Nicou (124157) 2014-01-08 1:25
Fantastique image et oeuvre d'art quelle vue de ces parapluies dans les aires c'est sueprbe quel effet de grandeur et de légèreté avec le personnage splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Ciao Costantino,molto bella,come le precedenti,in questa inquadratura stretta con dettagli straordinari,grande verticale di questa struttura davvero unica e interessantissima.Buona giornata,Luciano
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-01-08 3:57
now this is what I call interesting sculpture! Fantastic idea! The whole photo has been very cleverly composed and I like it in Black and White very much.
Perfect contrast and sharpness.
cornejo (32722) 2014-01-08 5:00
Hello Costantino, excellent photography in black and white this beautiful and interesting sculpture, beautifully captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness and light. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
SnapRJW (31613) 2014-01-08 6:01
I like this in B&W Constantino, it goes against one's natural instincts to present colourful umbrellas in B&W but the result is more studied. The gentle curve of the poles and the shapes and distribution of the umbrellas all take on more weight in this shot.The lone figure adds the finishing touch. Nicely done! Warm regards Rosemary
timecapturer (49288) 2014-01-08 6:31
these umbrellas are famous here on TE, but I have not seen them in b&w before, and they take on a different feel shown like this. Arty and presented both simply and yet beautifully. Like this shot a lot!
baclama (18139) 2014-01-08 6:48
quel magnifique noir et blanc!!!!
tres original et tres bien fait
Noel_Byrne (25230) 2014-01-08 7:21
What a beautiful work of art, this looks surreal, iconic and very wonderful in this beach front location. I love that you converted this to black and white too, as it seems to suit the subject so perfectly well.
The inclusion of the man shows the scale of the sculpture well. I like this a lot, a very attractive and appealing picture.
All the best
saxo042 (37588) 2014-01-08 7:41
A very creative idea, this is a very fine work of art. Also a very good capture, including the man to provide life and proportions.
jurek1951 (42160) 2014-01-08 10:26
an effective photo of this modern architecture, great details and the POV is attractive, Tfs
wolf38 (31282) 2014-01-08 10:45
Hello Costantino. Art on the beach and a photograph as a work of art. Here both comes together perfectly. I like the perfect shades between black and white. The inclusion of the background with ships and mountains is well managed. Overall a great photo.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
Didi (57492) 2014-01-08 10:47
Une très bonne composition
J'apprécie la qualité du N&B avec une bonne gestion de l'échelle des gris
Meilleurs voeux pour 2014
josepmarin (57831) 2014-01-08 11:19
I have seen these artistic umbrellas before here in TE, and I believe they are very aesthetical and have a great graphical quality.
You have done a good framing including the man for an efficient reference.
I like the B&W conversion, because it gives more power into the composition.
A great work, my friend.
PS: I wish you and yours a healthy and happy New Year.
Waylim (25362) 2014-01-08 16:11
Very good shot, I love the black and white presentation. Perfect. Interestign work of art and it make really wonderful photography subject, giving a sense of surreal and fantacy like image. Teh present of the man walking in give the sense of scale. Good contrast with good quality and composition.
emka (80830) 2014-01-08 23:34
hello Costantino, this time this amazing structure in black and white. It works well too. nice view against the see. Big graphical impact.
WArm regrads Malgo
Royaldevon (30745) 2014-01-09 2:57
This is such a refreshing shot!
I have really enjoyed just gazing at it!
The sculpture creates a sense of rain but, also, of protection from the rain ... great, it makes you think!
Of course, the figure is equally important for the sculpture to work.
Have a lovely day,
rychem (24548) 2014-01-09 8:39
These umbrellas are very attractive, first class photo, perfectly captured and presented
abmdsudi (44250) 2014-01-09 9:30
The mono version is apt and you have a decent amount of contrast and strong graphic elements. I think you have a solid shot and there's a pulling power as the eyes will always naturally focus on the diagonal lines and umbrellas while the fig adds scale proportion and sense of reality. Fine pp treatment and well done. Congrats.
nikkitta (14992) 2014-01-09 13:57
Very graphical effect of the umbrellas in a good B&W vertical composition with matching frame
Like the ships at the BG, as well as the walking man
Happy New Year plenty of good and creative photos
Angshu (56058) 2014-01-10 2:12
This is a very graphic image with the famous sculpture and is given a different dimension in B&W. The man provides a good idea of the scale
A very nice picture!
Best Wishes for the new Year
subhendu_bagchi (25871) 2014-01-10 3:36
here you presented a fascinating composition. Like the umbrellas, which are along with those slant poles generated here a superb graphism. Nice to see it in monochrome. The person walking under it is added bonus to it. Excellent one. Tfs.
ourania (32763) 2014-01-11 8:34
μια πανέμορφη ασπρόμαυρη εικόνα με εξαιρετικό ρυθμό και σύνθεση μέσα σε κάθετο κάδρο. Το καδράρισμά σου είναι άψογο και τονίζει το δυναμισμό και τη χάρη του γλυπτού. Οι έντονες και οι αιθέριες διαγώνιοι συνδυάζονται και τονίζονται θαυμάσια ενώ το ρυθμό ακολουθεί και ο διαβάτης με τον διασκελισμό του. Μου αρέσει επίσης η ευκρίνεια του φόντου και ο τρόπος που οι γκρίζοι τόνοι αντανακλούν το φως. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά και να έχεις ένα όμορφο Σαββατοκύριακο,
mcmtanyel (14225) 2014-01-11 21:22
This is very interesting artwork. I like the POV from which you captured it. It looks like a giant was fishing for umbrellas.
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-01-12 2:11
hats off my friend!
This scene in B&W looks magnificent!It seems to be a perfect subject for monochrome treatment and I have to say you did really excellent job here-both with the composition and with the treatement.
Have a nice sunday
eldancer1 (28983) 2014-01-12 19:09
Awesome capture of this art work especially in B&W! I like your pov and it has good details. Nice to have the person for scale. Well done, tfs.
rigoletto (34269) 2014-01-13 5:46
ela costantino. and i was thinking that people do not like b&w photos on TE. well, the crowd here proves the contrary. i also remember seeing these umrellas in cretense's and syd1946's galleries, you made a superb contribution to the theme.
amaryllis (35197) 2014-01-14 5:36
une superbe photo comme d'un lacher de parapluies et non de ballons....originale avec le passant qui regarde
en plus noir et blanc convient bien à ce genre de présentation
Cricri (107999) 2014-01-15 4:49
Une belle série de ces parapluies artistique, bien que je préfère en couleurs, le N/B donne super bien sous le fond gris du ciel
Silvio1953 (124571) 2014-01-15 9:14
Ciao Costantino, magnifico bianco e nero, tra le tue migliori, gran bella la grafica creata dagli ombrelli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-01-17 23:06
I like your take, on this umbrella sculpture scene, the walking man adds to it so much and the boats in the Bg, add perspective. Well managed and presented. Tfs, have a good Saturday.
bona (13037) 2014-01-18 10:11
this is a very curious and nice artwork. So many umbrellas that look like birds on naked trees. Nice inclusion of the man to add perspective of the size of the artwork.
Have a nice day
claudeD (33608) 2014-01-19 6:15
Very fine this " umbrella " picture realized perfectly in b+ w mode. I like the picture here very much. Very good contributiodn to TE.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
adores (38158) 2014-01-20 15:00
Always great to see this artwork! I like the b&w and the presence of the man walking close to the umbrellas. Good shot!
tenretin (2436) 2014-01-29 14:04
I'm a fan of photos in black and white with abstract composition or as here with a work of art. Great Photo! A share of dreams and poetry ...
kiks (11749) 2014-01-30 8:45
This úmbrellas are a fantastic item for photo's. I've seen them before here on TE and i realy like your composition with the persoon walking by giving a good idea of scale.
B&W was a great choice.
miumiu (6035) 2014-06-05 13:18
Fantastic photo and POV.
B & W is a very nice idea.
Very interesting art.
l like it!
worldcitizen (7121) 2014-09-07 18:53
I looked at your three photos of this subject, and this one attracted me the most. I like the vertical presentation, and the choice of B/W. These umbrellas are really lovely, and with the man passing by, you have an attractive composition.
unclehotshot (1933) 2014-11-06 1:37
Kalimera Constantinos. I was just looking at your splendid gallery. This one caught my attention. Apart from the fact that it's a spectacular and original idea as a piece of (alternative) art. But you have taken a very nice photo with ships i the BG and a man in front looking up. B/W was a clever choice, I think.
PS: I was inspired by you yesterday ... so today I have a photo of 2 elderly Greec ladies chatting.
