This is a skylight underneath the Museu Blau in Barcelona. I called it cubist skylight because of the shapes and obviously, this is in Picasso's blue period!
I keep thinking I have posted this one before but I don't see it in my gallery so maybe not. Having a slow, lazy day.

Nice capture from Barcelona with great graphical effect.
TFS and best regards

I have just been watching a programme called 'Treasure Hunters' and this does resemble a sparkling gem! I suppose we could call this a gem of a photograph! You have created an exciting, textural pattern, with a limited colour palette.
It is very much like an optical illusion, for it keeps causing me to alter my perception.
Have a great day,

You were highly observant in creating this image of abstract geometric shapes and textures. I like it very much. Incidentally, on your Intro Page you list some links to your other photographic endeavors. You could make them live links by embedding them in fairly simply html code, e.g. my website, as I did with mine, Bulent Atalay
Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll be happy to give you the code.

This is a very nice picture, with beautiful colors and a perfect composition.
In deed, it looks like a painting.

A work of art, one should always, always look at with two eyes.
A lovely as cubism picture, light and lines make these picture attractive.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect taken.
Excellent composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Nice to have a slow, lazy day now and again but you will find, as the years pass, such days can become the norm if you're not too careful!
You do these wonderfully "graphic" images so very well (I'm wondering if these are the sorts of pictures which do well in your camera club competitions or not?) and this one is no exception. A very well thought out and considered composition with strong lines and angles and lovely light and textures, particularly in the darker parts of the image. Bang-on exposure and exquisite sharpness too.

Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

une très belle photo d'architecture, l'angle est original avec des effets graphiques et de lumière très spéciaux.

THe blue light throw on the upper part of the scene is very beautiful, and in a way rather daunting. probably jus my imagination, but this to me looks like a futuristic version of peering into Dantes inferno! The blue light replaces the traditional yellow glow. A beautiful abstract work, really nicely done.

oh,I know this place well(first place I visited last time:)
Really enjoy your presentation and frame,especially because it captures so well the textures of the ceiling.
Another magnificent and abstract study of Barcelona´s architecture.

Fantastic image! I love how the light plays on the different sides of the building, bringing out the textures, patterns and contrasts so beautifully. A stunning visual effect and a masterful composition. Very well done.

Le graphisme et la lumière sont incroyables. Belle présentation, bien positionnée dans la photo. Le bleu est superbe.

This is a cracker! The colours, textures and graphic shapes make a fantastic piece of artistic photography. Perfectly executed.
Kind Regards, Ann

Good evening Michael
we don't imagine what we see, but it's eye catching by the different hues of blue and the 3 abstract arms.

This is one of the newer architectural landmarks of Barcelona, that I didn't know about.
Fascinating combination of rough dark surfaces and blueish triangular ones. Your should would work well as an abstract painting!

Hello Mike - This is so special. Initially, the geometric shapes look quite simple but the detailing in texture and shading is wonderfully complex and there is so much to see. This is a shot that gets better the longer I look at it and one than would not bore me at all.
macjake (57974) 2014-04-24 1:12
or should i call you Juan? haha
funny thing...I thought you had posted this photo once before too - no joke. Maybe we're both going a bit mad!
when you TELL us the large blue square in the middle is a skylight it actually helps my brain figure out all the geometric shapes - very cool.
love the differenet shades and blue variances. awesome shot
ourania (33607) 2014-04-24 8:44
I like very much this photo, not only for the architecture and the fine graphic effect but also for the atmosphere created by the blue tones and the diffused light. A very intriguing geometrical arrangement, it looks like the patterns' position in the frame is not permanent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

The thumbnail made me think of a modern painting. The close-up framing keeps the mystery on the subject, until I read your note. That's an uncommon view, so graphical. Congrats !
