This image has been taken at the roof of the Palau Güell located in Barcelona and designed by architect Antoni Gaudí for the Catalan industrial tycoon Eusebi Güell.
Perhaps the most striking space of the building is the roof. There are eighteen chimneys and ventilators, some plain brick, some trencadís jig-saw puzzle fragments of tiles, decorating geometrical or organically shaped caps poised on columns.
Gaudí was the first Spanish architect to recover the old Moorish style of using fragments of tile to decorate a surface and on the roof of the Palau Güell, his first attempt at trencadís, he was riffing on the theme, showing off subtle variations on similar structures, playing with the effects of the changing light. It makes magical landscape against the backdrop of old Barcelona. Source: barcelona-tourist-information.info

On to jednak miał fantazję, kominy jak grona, szalona kolorystyka, ale w tym szaleństwie jest metoda :)
Piękne zdjęcie, ciekawy punkt widzenia

Hello Gosia, ineteresting shot here. Good contrast with the sky. I have to admit that Gaudi's creations look so peculiar, i can't say that i'm his biggest fan. Good idea to shoot from underneath. Well done.
npecanhuk (73492) 2013-01-06 10:28
Interesting and attractive pciture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, black borders, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
A very nice week for you!!!

Gosia - what a bizarre structure you've shown us today! I'm not sure I would have made the Moorish connection had you not specified it in your note. I can imagine that this chimney, seen among the Barcelona skyline, is a unique presence. I like how you've captured it, expressing the scale and height through a close angle in strong light.

Good evening Gosia,
Wonderful view upwards on thisunique ercted art-details.
I like the multi-green tones on a bloons-type structure's.
Fine shot, have a nice week ahead,

Spectacular detail in great colors and textures. Well done!

Sorry I haven't visited your portfolio recently: I've taken a break from TE, but have returned with batteries fully charged! I like your latest posting a lot. I was in Barcelona a few years ago, but not for nearly long enough to do it photographic justice. This is a cracking image, nice and tightly composed, and the towering, eccentric Gaudi chimney is offset from the centre to "obey" the rule of thirds. Good, natural colours too.
Happy New Year.

Nice low-angle shot of that chimney.Beautiful special architecture.Very sharp picture and nice colors.Interesting note.Very well done.
ChrisJ (109532) 2013-01-06 21:41
Maybe I would have flipped this one vertically? So that the triangle apex is pointing down instead of up? Anyway nice catch of unusual architecture with good sharpness & lighting. Tfs!
jjcordier (79295) 2013-01-06 22:52
Un très bon cadrage en contreplongée de cette étonnante et spectaculaire réalisation de Gaudi. Belle lumière pour une photo très réussie.

fascinating piece of Gaudi magic and captured beautifully. Love the POV and the immaculate detailing. Stunning!
Have a good week - Brian.

Wonderful composition with that interesting architecturally chimney, excellent perspective and POV, TFS!
After many days today is my first day in 2013 writing critiques to my TE friends, so Happy New Year, Vasilis.
Noel_Byrne (29183) 2013-01-07 12:46
A fantastic view of this amazing structure but your note adds so much more. I can see the play of light on the mosaic. Perfect pov too. Really nicely done.
carlo62 (43557) 2013-01-07 15:16
un camino così stravagante e bello poteva farlo solo Gaudì. Tu sei riuscita a riprenderlo in modo eccellente, il pov lo esalta contro il cielo blu, il suo colore è fantastico.
batalay (37851) 2013-01-07 18:47
The intertwined bubbles used in architecture couple with the name Gaudi immediately suggests Barcelona for the site. I know that his architectural style is organic, but he seemed to possess a mind like M c Escher. Very good photo and note.
macjake (64704) 2013-01-08 6:27
barcelona sure has some weird and unique architecture!
what on earth is this thing!
i'm glad to see some blue sky here too, it contrasts the greens smartly.
really cool subject and of course well executed shot

widac, ze to bogate miasto skoro pozwolilo sobie kiedys zafundowac takie rzezby. Atrakcyjnie to wyglada. Bylem tam w latach 90tych ale na takie cudo nie trafilem. Dobre ujecie.

The omnipresent of glorious green grapes just go together so well, superb closeup work, pov and realised. The artwork is fantastic and certainly very eye-catching thanks to attention to detail and great concentration. The lines and textures really add to the impact, simply awesome and credit to your keen eyes, Well done.

Hello Malgorzata Siudzinska
It is very artistic and creative

rzeczywiscie ten komin wyglada jak kisc winogrona. Fantastyczne ujecie i zaprezenotwanie nam. Podoba mi sie.
josepmarin (58325) 2013-01-14 0:58
in this excellent close-up you allow us to admire the talent of Gaudí, by means of this wonderful decorative element in the roof of the Palau Güell.
Its vivid colors are outlined on the blue sky, and its organic shapes provide a fantastic graphical effect for the composition.
It is a great photo, I like.
fabbs99 (17129) 2013-01-18 20:58
Excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation.Beautiful POV and with vivid colors and proper light management. Very well done, TFS.

Ach ten Gaudi, co za niesamowita postac, co za wyobraznia! Swietnie uchwycilas fasade dachu tego budynku. Piekna mozaika i bardzo atrakcyjnie rysuje sie tutaj na tle nieba.
Serdecznie Cie pozdrawiam,
Romano46 (18472) 2013-02-08 5:03
a Barcellona di opere architettonice ce ne sono infinite e sono un paradiso per i fotografi.
Ma bisogna anche saper riprendere nella maniera più adatta il soggetto altrimenti si rischiano solo foto banali.
In questa tu hai trovato un punto di ripresa molto interessante che valorizza l'architettura e la esalta. Sei stata bravissima nel creare una composizione a trianngolo ricca di infinite sfumature di verde ed il risultato colpisce immediatamente per la vivacitàdi forme e di colori.
Una foto che è stata molto apprezzata e sicuramente resterà anche impressa a lungo perchè nel farla ci hai messo, oltre che la tecnica, anche l'anima.
Buoni tutti i parametri:nitidezza, contrasto, luminosità, saturazione e altrettanto buone, come tuo solito anche le note a corredo.
Ciao e buona giornata
claudeD (37290) 2013-02-16 7:39
Very interesting architecture picture with good colors and very fine sharpness. I like the view and your note very much.TFS.
