Not an interplanetary spaceship, but a view of one of the entrances to the O2 Arena (previously the Millennium Dome) on the North Greenwich peninsular in London, England.

I like the post processing in this one, it enhances the mood created by the faces in the window.
A multi-layered photo that would be best appreciated on a gallery wall.
Have a nice weekend

I am glad that this has survived. There were talks of it being demolished not too long after the Millennium!
You have created a very good symmetrical view of the Dome, showing the most interesting features of its curved surface and long 'antennae'.
I presume your pp includes some desaturation.
The effect is very striking and gives a very original touch to this new London building.
Have a great day,

Sorry that I've not been very active on TE for the last week or so - children and grandchildren visiting!
But what a photograph to see on my return! A photograph which not only shows that you have a wonderful "eye" for seeing things, composing a good shot and camerawork in general; but your skills in editing are second to none.
The symmetrical composition is stunning and I love how you have desaturated the sky quite a lot and accentuated the clouds to make this look almost like a monochrome image. The light on the surface of the dome is magnificent and those four steel "chimneys" stand out brilliantly. And I love your treatment of the windows in the lower part of the picture with the almost surreal faces looking out at the viewer.
This is a fabulous photograph and I'm just thinking that this one would go down a treat in any of my own camera club's competitions - this is just the sort of image that really does appeal to judges.

A most unusual point of view creating a superb graphical composition. Precisely framed and with superb detail. It is good to see that what was originally considered by many as a white elephant has well and truly come into its own.
The weather over here this summer has been a bit of a disappointment on the whole, with no really prolonged periods of fine, dry warm weather. Today, we have again a short respite between showers.

Mind bending. You have a really great eye for these unusual images. Are you sure that it is not a mother ship carrying a cargo of humans?
Stick to your guns with pushing the boundaries on TE with image taking and post processing.

I like this strange and strong composition, a good idea and a nice photo job. I like the dark background . Very sharp, compliments!!

This is brilliant! An original and artistically taken close-up of the O2. The symmetrical view makes it look even more alien. Great processing - love it. A favourite for me.
Kind Regards, Ann

I like the way you show us the city of London, its much different than how others present it.
its also good how the clouds are well positioned in the middle, making it even more symmetrical.
love the silver tones too with those 4 pipes, gives it a mechanical/industrial type of feel and mood.

This photo differs from the rest of your photos, interesting capture actually providing the illusion of space ship, I like it a lot

Un cadrage très original de ce bâtiment associé à un traitement d'image bien adapté pour cette photo très réussie.

I see the space ship resemblance alright, but more so this makes me thing of a giant bug, perhaps a scorpion, rearing up to attached, taken from the point of view of its prey. The masts behind seem like great weapons about to strike. The color effect in this is beautiful too, almost mono but for the orange stingers!
Have a great weekend
