This was a photo taken on what I call the "Malgo Photo Walking Tour 2012!" :)
Malgo walked us around Warsaw for 3 days, and took us to places we probably would not have seen if we were exploring the city on our own - so a big thanks goes out to her once again.
This photo was taken at the Warsaw University. We are standing up top, basically its a rooftop garden on the Campus. Far off into the background you can see the city skyline, and the tall Palace of Culture and Science building - another one of Warsaw's Iconic sights.
Enjoy your day everyone!

I was curious if Malgorzata did show you this place.I hope you liked it.I like the way you composed it.This oval glass facade of the Warsaw University Library makes a really eye-catching element of your composition.And in the addition the great view of the city in the distance.Excellently composed picture.Superb clarity and colors.
Have a nice day

I never seen before this modern architecture of University in Warsaw. Thanks to You Craig and Malgorzata, we have opportunity to look at, and the same time to see roof cityscape. Wonderfully executed, wonderfully frame this photo. Great job. I really like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.
All the best,

Very stunning shot, first it's difficult to say what you are seeing....after you like the creative composition...I can see some skycrapers at the BG...Warsaw is modernizing too, i do not know if it is good or not, old Warsaw is so nice!

Une architecture très moderne bien mise en valeur par ce cadrage dans ce format panoramique et l'arrière plan plan habille bien cette image.

Excellent presentation of this great architecture. Really like your POV which provided us with the city skyline in the background. Superb composition, tfs!

What an outstanding POV! Being able to include the skyline as an upper border adds a tremendous amount here, placing the building in context. And certainly the building itself is worthy of some time; a very unique piece of architecture that I'm sure you were quite eager to photograph, Craig. Nicely done.

is good when we visit places that common tourist don`t visit because is it not present in many tour guides. But when we have a native guide as you have Malgorzata, we can find very beautiful places to take photos.
This architecture building is fascinating.
Thank you to take the photo and Malgorzata to carry you there.

mi piace l'effetto circolare creato dalla struttura mentre sullo sfondo si nota la città con la sua varia architettura.
Buona la resa dei colori e il controllo della luce,

Really interesting place. It's great to have such a guide, always spectacular places apart from the main touristic routes.
Have a nice day.

Quite a interesting building. Congratulation to the photographer and to his guide. Nice framing. Beautiful light and sharpness. The depth of field give us access to a view of the town in the background.

great image of contrasts, modern glass vs old world charm. Like the way you have presented this it shows your talent as a photographer who sees and thinks outside the box. Well done!
Regards - Brian.

You must have had a good time in Warsaw and you definitely saw many interesting buildings. For example this one! Also an interesting capture of the background skyline.
marabu61 (3914) 2012-09-05 13:16
Great composition and nicely framed, this is very good photo. The distant city just about adds the necessary contrast to the modern building in the foreground.
Having a local guide who is in herself a stunning photographer must have been a dream.
Have a great time

What a change to see modern structures from old European cities. I like the three distinct layers. Nice repeating blue tones to pull it all together. My guess is that you were dying to get in there and do some geometry!

Hi Craig, Thank you very much for your kind words and a good advertisement of my guide skill. I hope that other Trekkers will follow your example :). Creative composition. I was so many times here, making photos, but I always looked into the hole, and here you showed the nice cityscape. excellent shot, I like it very much.
I enjoy so much using my new toy, thanks for your advice.

How great to have a Malgo to show you round. It must have saved you a lot of wasted time, too.
You talk about the b/g and that is what sets the context for this quite amazing building. Lights, and colours and reflections excite the eyes and change perception. Your pov helps to draw the viewer into its interior, creating memories of a pitcher plant, a beutiful, slippery sided flower, from which insects cannot escape!
Have a lovely day,

This seems to be a great place, having a view of the campus, the inside circular building and the cuty scaape.
It's a fascinating rhtyhmic and graphism dominated by the circular arrangement of the rectangular glass and the pano format and crispness assures a very fine viewing experience. I likt it a lot!
Best ragards from Rotterdam,

Yes, I know this place too. We also walked with Malgo here. Excellent DoF, fine details. Thanks for memories.

I really like the way you presented this curved architecture in the foreground. The oval almost engulfs us and pulls us into the frame. It is an original composition, with a nice hint of the city off in the distance.

That Malgo sounds like a force of nature and as you say, thanks to her, you wouldn't have seen the city nearly so well. She chose this place well for you, knowing your love of modern buildings. The wide-angle lens has once again done its job and I like the contrast between the graphism of the modern building and what lies beyond it. Nice work, and so very Craigesque.
