"Relax... don't do it" Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
A shot I took inside the MACBA in Barcelona. I was on the upper level looking down to the ground level and saw this woman taking advantage of the bean bags to relax after her walk around the art exhibition.
On the wall in front of her, directly in front of her line of vision was a large equation written on the wall that said "Some Objects of Desire + Some Objects of Necessity + Some Objects of No Concern - Those Things that escape Notice divided by a Force Majeure = Some Things" - I kind of liked that, it seemed to sum up the way a photograph can sometimes seem like SOME THING other than what it manifestly appears to be.

This is a masterpiece of light, form and shape.
It is so exciting to observe how your photos (and presentation of them) evolved in such a short time. Talented ones do improve in a short time on TE (and eventually leave, sigh)

Hi Mike - It's funny reading Deniz's comment below; I was just thinking about your work this morning and was going to say to you that you have really developed into a creative photographer in your time on TE. Here is another great example of your all-seeing eye and creative interpretation of the world around you. I am looking at the shot in the beta format (really the usual TE page does it no justice) Impressive work. My congratulations. Have a great weekend. Rosemary

an excellent framing here captured from the top. I like how the light bar is enlighted the part of the lady and the back portion of the land. This strip and the vertical column nice created an angle which meats the right front corner of the frame which added graphism. A nice idea and very well executed. Tfs.

Love this lighting, and thanks for including the detail of the quote, makes the whole image that bit more magical. Perfectly composed, and intriguing.

this is a fine composition with a fine relaxing mood in an minimalist architectural composition. I like very much how the lady stands out in the minimal geometric environment and the sense of depth is great. Most of all I like the way the light affects the scene and the feeling of concentration evoked by the lady's steady gaze that follows the diagonal. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

What a great scene captured inside this truly amazing gallery! Like it as well as the song of Frankie Goes to Hollywood:)
Your selected POV is a key of the composition. Very well observed and executed. TFS.
Have a nice day!

Relax ... you've done it!
This is a great shot, Mike!
You have seen an opportunity, perfectly in keeping with the abstract art of Barcelona, and made it your own.
I just love the use of the sunbeam!
Have a great Sunday,

This view reminds me a movie scene, 'cause she lays in the lamp light. Like a special situation for your amazing photo. Fine composition, great timing shot!
Best wishes from cool rainy Ural...
The autumn is coming soon.

a perfect moment, beautifully captured with simplicity and sophistication.
the repetition of the white circular forms, the way the shaft on sunlight falls on your subject, the body language and the accent punch of the green bag ~ all great.
a romantic shot, nicely done, mike ~
