exciting capture of the cars that harmonize with the building. excellent capture and you managed to think in such a short moment.
well thought composition. The sharpness and details are splendid. How the light in a well balanced view add excitement to the composition.
good job well executed.

Wonderfuly caought, an excelent idea, Malgorzata.
It struck me when saw this - that here in israel you most likely to snap a shot of many grey cars( mostly Mazda'a)...
I see a fabulous and typical architecture's on the house on BG, with clear details on.
A fine take,

znakomicie skomponowane zdjecie.Budynek ma naprawde piekne zdobienia.Podoba mi sie tez pomysl z umieszczeniem samochodow w kadrze.W zasadzie mamy tutaj do czynienia z dwoma tematami zdjecia.Zarowno te biale samochody,jak i piekny budynek przykuwaja nasza uwage w rownym stopniu.Bardzo ladne zdjecie.

another fine photo taken with a creative eye.
the only thing missing here are some white clouds to really top it all off!!
i used to think that buying a white car isn't that masculine, but the more i see white cars the more i like them
question....whats with the letters on the side of the cars?

A photo that illustrates perfectly your observation, but with a splendid building in bonus.
You could have had the same impression coming in Johannesburg, as apparently people attribute a better reselling value to white cars... In Canada, to the contrary, they are considered kitsch and being driven mostly by elders, so no one wish to have a white car, even less in winter, where they would blend with snowbank... :-p))

considering that taxis of Madrid are white... there are so many vehicles of this color in the city.... I like the idea and the composition with the white cars, the beautiful building in the back is a plus, well done,

I smiled when I saw these white cars in Madrid as it contrasts with my yellow and black cars in Barcelona that I uploaded today.
New cars and old architecture have made an interesting composition. Very well seen and taken.
Best wishes, Ann
guitianmiranda (5325) 2011-05-21 8:30
well seen, it is an effect similar to that makes the yellow cabs in New York. Greetings.

Very attractive urban picture!
Special regards to the chosen pov, vertical format and composition where you gathered so efficiently and so wonderfully all those white cars and the magnificent architectural details of that building!
TFS - congrats,

tu as eu un bon coup d'oeil pour prendre toutes ces voitures blanches avec la façade de ce batiment de belle architecture en arričre plan

Hello Malgorzata, White is a colour you have when you don't know what colour you want :-) Good POV you have chosen for this shot, the gaps between the cars forms a nice line leading the eye into the frame & to the magnificent building in the BG. A nice image of good quality.
sevy (15367) 2011-05-27 1:57
I like the idea of this shot with all those white cars in foreground and then the almost white front of the building. You used well the vertical frame to build this photo and I guess the polarizer to make deeper the sky and then to increase the contraste of the shot.
jmdias (59190) 2011-06-14 17:27
interesting this framing with the group of white cars in the lower part ofn this compo and the beautiful architecture of this building above. nice job with light, framing and sharpness. TFS
serp2000 (42212) 2012-02-18 5:54
But the taxi are black-n-yellow. Although a white car is a right choice in this hot country. Attractive architecture on the background, this is typical Spain and reminds me Barcelona.
My compliments, Malgo!
