Taken at the Tate Modern in an area themed as 'Structure and Clarity' in the 'Minimalism' room. This steel, aluminium and perspex work of art is by Donald Judd (1980).
A grab shot with little time for checking exposure etc. I hope that this appeals to some of you.

Une photo de très grande qualité.La composition est excellente grâce à ce beau cadrage vertical. Les éléments sont bien placés dans l'image et la gestion de la lumière est impeccable.

Superb combination of colour and composition with good sharp edges make this a very dramatic and eye catching photograph Ann. Love the graduated light effect from top to bottom.

tres geometrique et graphique mais le regard du bébé change tout!!
un tres bon coup d'oeil, et un declenchement au bon moment!

love the Tate Modern and do not get up to London as much as I should to appreciate it fully. When I lived in London and worked in Borough High Street a stones throw away the old Power Station was still a hollow shell. Like your creativity here the human element makes it work so beautifully. Clever and observant imagery! Minimalist versus Complex. ;-)
Regards - Brian.

I really like the idea and simple compostion. There are some stories to be told there... "loneliness in face of modernity", "this is taller than me"...

Splendida immagine! Magnifica composizione, perfetta! Bello l'uomo in piedi con il bambino mentre osserva l'opera, la sua posa si contrappone alla verticale dell'opera! Molto bella, complimenti!

la foto dell'opera d'arte sarebbe stata interessante, con l'aggiunta dell'uomo, sarebbe stata molto bella, ma con l'aggiunta del bambino è diventata fantastica, sia per la presenza sia per lo sguardo completamente disinteressato.
Complimenti, un gran bello scatto.

I like this rather "graphic" shot. In fact, I like it rather a lot!
The composition is excellent and delightfully pleasing, the tall artwork on the left being perfectly balanced by the man holding his child and even the grid in the floor on which he is standing. The man is clearly studying the tall row of shelves (or whatever they are) while the child is probably more interested in other people in the gallery - or perhaps even that strange lady with a camera.
Despite what you say about this being a quick "grab" shot, your exposure is spot-on and the lighting is good - I presume there was some lighting through high windows in the gallery. Lovely colours and excellent details and sharpness.

Minimalism and fantastic photo Ann, very appealing and the composition is very good.

Hi Ann,absolutely beautiful! What a composition,a spectacular catch-eye! And what a quality,the exposure is very very professional,as the perspective,the details and the colors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

non posso che farti i complimenti.
La composizione è eccellente per come hai inquadrato il soggetto, ma soprattutto per l'inserimento della figura umana che rende bene l'idea di grandezza del soggetto e nello stesso tempo permette di riempire in maniera gradevole quella che sarebbe stata una parete bianca senza alcun significato.
Oltre tutto la presenza del bambino dà un tocco di allegria all'insieme della composizione, senmza però distogliere l'attenzione dal soggetto principale.
Ottima anche la gestione della luce e la nitidezza.
E' un vero piacere commentare questa tua opera meritevole di elogi tra tante altre opere mediocri che vengono pubblicate ogni giorno
Ciao e buona serata

Cêst une superbe photo minimaliste et artistique.
J'aime bien ta composition et le cadrage.

Really an excellent photo, great graphic effect, I like the youngest viewer, perfect composition and realisation

Brilliant capture of this extremely great scene! You had a good eye to see it and composed very classy and elegant. Excellent shot!
Thanks for sharing.
dkmurphys (36801) 2013-03-07 23:11
Original scene. I like the artistic result of your capture, well taken.
macjake (39227) 2013-03-07 23:13
I think this will appeal to most of us :)
why wouldn't it :)
this is one of those times where Claude and Gert are correct, and having that human presence really does affect the scene in a positive way - I hate it when they're right! haha
such a simple but smart way to create great height in a scene.

Hello Ann - A striking composition, the simplicity of which calls for close examination and is where the shot succeeds or fails visually. You have the perfect balance here with the negative space emphasising the height of the art work. The grid that the man is standing on is a nice detail echoing the shape and rhythm of the sculpture. Nicely seen and presented. Take care and warm regards rosemary

a very artistic display. the harmony on colors is aggravating the efficiency.
krzychu30 (8873) 2013-03-09 8:27
minimalism can be sometimes much more expressive than any other rich in details photo.And you achieved definitely such effect here.We´re not distracted by too many details,but this is exactly what makes your composition so exceptional.Well observed and excellently executed.Also you catched the best timing to immortalize this scene.
Have a nice weekend

The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) in Brisbane, Australia, has been favourably compared with the Tate Gallery in the UK, so it's nice to see an image from there. Good sharpness and the warm skin colours of the baby contrast well against the blue tones throughout the rest of this image. Good sharpness and graphism. Tfs!
ManuMay (33343) 2013-03-11 4:48
Very beautiful and well conceived capture, composition is really good and the play of forms, and the human presence are a great choice to compose the capture, very good and nice moment...
InasiaJones (29337) 2013-03-11 19:39
The Tate Modern, one of my favorite museums in the world, in the top 5 for sure.
A very fresh way to present visitors in this kind of environment. I like the interaction between your subjects and the work of art, their distance and the contrast of dimensions that creates a visual stress.
A minimalist composition that suits the atmosphere of your image, artsy in its own right.
CLODO (24726) 2013-03-15 11:45
of course, it's appealing Ann
Good reflex to fix this situation/
mjw364 (3680) 2013-03-16 2:29
I have had quite a few "run ins" with people in various galleries for taking shots of the exhibits - usually they don't allow you so I can understand why you needed to graba quick shot. Having said that the composition here is very fortunate given the lack of time you had. It has a great compositional balance and I like the way the man with the baby is standing on the air vent (?) almost like it was put there for him. The way the child is looking away whilst the man is looking at the exhibit adds opportunity for further interpretation. I bet the youngster is thinking "that's a load of cooker hoods stuck to the wall - wait til you see what I can do with my lego"!
Cricri (86431) 2013-03-17 9:13
Une très belle composition géométrique, le contraste des couleurs, bien présenter avec la personne et son petit bout qui attire aussi le regard d'une façon différentes bien sur :-)
Schnappilic (7927) 2013-03-19 13:29
Superb framing with beautiful result. Congratulations!
zoomer (3580) 2013-04-01 14:12
Hi,your picture tops the actual display!You gave it meaning and human perspective.Outstanding work,Wolf.

The picture has a great composition and
light management and it's also a picture
that tells more than a thousand words.
adidas5nb (1101) 2013-04-07 23:53
very eye catching photograph with fantastic colors and composition.
bayno (16195) 2013-04-14 2:33
many good pic in your gallery....i love this one, rich of graphic element and at the same time minimal....the framing is perfect and fine details, very very good one...
Rafer (14223) 2013-05-13 9:43
Another superbe composition... :)))))))))))))
Glint (5573) 2013-05-17 1:31
I have a lot of photos to catch up on since I disappeared from TE. For the moment this one caught my eye because of its strong graphical quality. Well composed, I like the juxtaposition of the human element and the architectural (although a work of art rather than a building).
