We are dwarfs hopsasa and under mushrooms have our booths. hopsasa.. (the Polish kindergarten song).
This is Metropol Parasol popularly known as Las Setas de la Encarnación (Incarnación's mushrooms).
This time I have been not prepared :( - I haven't known that it is possible to go to the view platform up there.But I was there during a day and also late in the night.
Metropol Parasol is a wooden structure located at La Encarnación square, in the old quarter of Seville, Spain. It was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann and completed in April 2011. It has dimensions of 150 by 70 metres and an approximate height of 26 metres and claims to be the largest wooden structure in the world. Its appearance, location, delays and cost overruns in construction resulted in much public controversy. he structure consists of six parasols in the form of giant shrooms ("Las setas" in Spanish), whose design is inspired by the vaults of the Cathedral of Seville and the ficus trees in the nearby Plaza de Cristo de Burgos.

illustrated architecture with fascinating light management you captured.

A very strange structure clearly captured in this nicely exposed nocturnal image. I like the composition. The strong graphical lines of the Parasol stand out beautifully against the inky night sky.

Quelle belle structure, très photogénique avec de très belles teintes de bleu à la base. Le temps d'exposition choisi fait bien ressortir les détails.J'aime bien la tour ancienne à l'arrière plan.

Hi Malgo - That's a pretty cool shot with the mushroom nicely captured with plenty of contrast and detail. It seems to push up from the ground just like a fungi doesn't it? I like the large expanse of inky darkness here it gives good balance to the colours and the view is uncluttered.

Dramatic composition with the striking sculpture. I liked the beautiful geometric patterns outlined against the dark background with excellent colours and sharpness.
The lights and the illuminated buildings provide great atmosphere to the picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

When I was in Sevilla, this mushroom did not yet exist in anyone's dreams. I think I have to go back for a visit.
It looks gigantic and has also a wonderful design.
This is an excellent night shot of this Parasol protective hanging over the well lit church tower.
Best regards, Paul

Nastepne ciekawe nocne zdjecie. Podoba mi sie kontrast miedzy nowa architektura oraz stara na dalszym planie... a takze, oczywiscie, odlotowe tlumaczenie piosenki o krasnoludkach! :-D

good exposure and interesting structure. fine colors and details.

Kolejne ciekawe wieczorowe zdjecie, konstrukcja zaskakuje wygladem. Niezle ja zestawilas ze starsza czescia Sewili. Wybralas ciekawy kadr, choc bez watpienia w tym miejscu jest wiele mozliwosci.

A fantastic night composition certainly unusual architecture, with the night lighting has a special charm, very well managed exposure to get this very clear image.
A very appropriate framework enhances the magnificent work.
A superb range of color.
Splendid image. My compliments.
Have a happy day.
Best wishes, my friend.

Quite an original, and huge sculpture. It it certainly looks best on this well planned night illumination. The more classical building is perfectly placed like floating in the darkness.

very eye-catching photo, nice composition and light management.
carlo62 (33803) 2014-06-03 14:25
bello questo scatto, non ne sbagli uno, mi piace la vista di questa moderna struttura, con la presenza quasi eterea della torre dorata che spunta nella notte a vegliare su tutti.
Saluti (anche a Firenze è piovuto per qualche minuto)

Good pov and good frame to show an unique architecture in modern style, clear to show the beautiful architecture in good color and lighting effect too, distinct night photo, well done.

Bonne exploitation photographique (et nocturne) de ce "parasol" en bois.

Your night shots from Sevilla culminate to a magnificent series, Malgo.
Beautiful monument, lit with blue and yellow tones and collected superbly on photo.
The "older" monument rise from the background, provided a good sense of depth when looking at.
Impressive and intriguing place.

awesome night shot this. Executed perfectly and a really eye-catching presentation. Looks intriguing and amazing.

Sometimes I think architects are crazy, we have a building in Las Vegas designed by Frank Gehry and it looks weird. Nice nocturnal capture of this building with good details. Well done, tfs.

ein absolutes Kunstwerk so schön, ich bin begeistert, gratuliere dir!

Nice picture in the black hour
Not so easy to manage the lights but you have done a ood work
jcpix (13688) 2014-06-04 19:37
I don't care for mushrooms, but when they're prepared in this fashion I'll gladly eat it up....with the camera of course. :) What a beautiful piece of work, both from the the artist and photographer, you put this on an impressive night time display. I really enjoy the mystical structure in the background, seemingly floating in air. Lovely rich colors and clear detail...you and the tripod make a good team. ;) Have a great day ahead. All the best.
jemaflor (85510) 2014-06-04 23:13
Well managed your night shot, light is perfectly captured, interesting architecture and contrast with the tower in the Bg.
fabbs99 (16485) 2014-06-04 23:38
Lovely image of the wooden mushroom in darkness.Excellent POV and perspective, beautiful colors and light, good sharpness.Keep sharing.

Ciao Malgorzata, fascinating nocturne shoot, lovely composition with fantastic architecture, excellent exposure, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
worldcitizen (7071) 2014-06-05 11:25
Nice capture of this interesting structure. It also looks like a giant beehive. I like the blue lighting underneath. Your exposure is excellent, also showing the golden top of the building on the right. I'm sure this scene looks different during the day, and probably not as dynamic without the lighting against the dark, night sky.

Hello dear Malgo,
Next summer when my two younger grandchildren shall come to my summer house I'll teach them this Kindergarten song ! Full text please :-)

TFS and best regards !

A quite spectacular scene and so very well captured in the night's darkness.
The mushroom is well placed and has an exceptional sharpness. I particularly like how it starts narrow and then expands over the whole scene.
Have a good day,
annjackman (19937) 2014-06-07 2:48
This is a super architectural shot and I like the way that it is lit with that very black BG. Expertly composed - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Well, i'm back! nice to post photos once again too :)
i see you have posted many fine photos on FB as well, and its great to see you using your tripod :)
I hear Gert is coming to see you in Warsaw, thats fantastic!!!!!
and in this photo you used your tripod once again, perhaps I have had some influence on you? hahah
I would never have thought this is a wooden structure, looks very large and certainly wants attention.
that splash of blue color really works well with the dark blackness surrounding most of the scene.
the dome on the right looks like a ghost in the night :)
see you around
