Spiral staris and ine of the capsules of the London Eye.
After a rainy week, suddenly the clouds have gone, and there was an amazing sunset.
I got dozens of shots of this sunset, and I chosed this one to share with you.
One of the aerial routes to Heathrow airport passes right above this place, that's why you see some white jet lines in the sky.

The composition is perfect and the sky incredible with all these forms and colors.
Graphic and poetic at the same time.
Congratulations, Yitzhak !

Hi Yitzak great picture. I think i must go there. A damned good sky you have captured. A simple wow! Beautiful colors. Very well done!!

This is just wonderful, Yitzhak. It s a very different take on a subject I've seen a couple of time here on TE, and I think this is the best one so far. The silhouettes are very interesting, and the sky very dramatic. Well done!

Great colors..in a fantastic sky..i like the compostion.
papagolf21 (83444) 2004-03-26 7:16
Quand le ciel se fait feu d'artifice et qu'il dessine des diagonales dans tous les sens, la composition prend une forme des plus curieuses.
Bien vu également l'escalier hélicoïdal, l'on reconnaît votre oeil artistique Yitzhak.
Très bien fait et très original.
When the sky is made fireworks and that it draws diagonals in all the directions, the composition takes a form of most curious. Well considering also the helicoid staircase, one recognizes your artistic eye Yitzhak. Very well done and very original.

Great picture with a very good composition with this fabulous sky in background and a lot of details as these stairs and these street lamps.

A compositional masterpiece, Yitzhak. The silhouettes of the different architectural pieces and objects would already make a great shot, but to have it backed by this fabulously colorful sunset is just wonderful. Also it's another example of how to approach photographing well known sights or monuments in a fresh way. Great shot.
cool_s15 (4050) 2004-03-26 8:12
Not an usual shot from you here? Very beautiful Blue and Warm sky! The silhouette is so great with sharp details. Nice shot!

A beautiful night sky, silhouetting many abstract shapes. A creative angle to view of one of the London Eye pods.
Deus (928) 2004-03-26 9:02
Very graphical colours and composition.
Excelent work, and well framed.
maciekda (19895) 2004-03-26 10:58
nice picture, a lot of interesting dark shapes... and the sky is beautiful and there is a lot of interesting lines, nice picture
allotfy (1525) 2004-03-26 11:30
Great composition and very nice angle the colors of the sky and the sunset is perfect well done
manny (21833) 2004-03-26 12:13
Amazing blue! The lines are engaging and patterned silhouettes are wonderfully juxtaposed all over the frame. The abstract quality is still there but this scene as as easy to look because fo the colors. Great work.
lemon_logix (1054) 2004-03-26 12:33
wow. did you use any filter for the sky? What did you do in PS? Very nice sky..well captured. Caught my eye!!
PLD_images (7149) 2004-03-26 12:53
There are many photos of the eye on TE, but I have never seen one fro this angle. Intersting composition with all the silhouettes. The saturation is pushed a bit too much for my taste, but I really enjoy the great composition.
scalerman (26900) 2004-03-26 13:00
Always amazed at the geometry found in your shots. Rich, saturated sky here too. Super.
zto (292) 2004-03-26 13:37
I can see that you have had your hand in this sun set Yitzhak. It would surly not be as spectacular with out your "magic touch". :) The strong contrast is really great here as well as teh darkness. and that sky, very blue, very intresting with the clouds and air plane tracks.
bfly (5775) 2004-03-26 15:43
beautiful..and I am so happy you had at least one sunny day in London..besides all good things on a holiday :)..I hope the best of energy for you in new job now..
Georges (11185) 2004-03-26 16:26
Tres bon ca comme idée pour une peinture les couleurs sont superbe rien a redire juste felicitation Yitzhak c'est vraiment tres beau
cxxl (2682) 2004-03-26 18:58
Wow!! Sensational colour and contrast Yitzhak. The jet streams add an abstract element. I also lovethe highlight on the edge of the egg shaped capsule. Very well done.
Jeppe (18654) 2004-03-27 4:11
Wow - You surely got an alternative shot of the London eye - And what a sunset - amazing colours :-)
The silhouttes a study by its own - very fine work Yitzhak - Thanks for sharing.
jhonny_blue (4956) 2004-03-27 9:46
Beautiful composition Avigur !
The colours and the place are great !
jrj (34841) 2004-03-27 10:43
Excellent composition including fine details and put in a very good perspective. Grand job of London Yitzhak..
zimchris (403) 2004-03-27 15:02
Following your message to me I am very jealous that I missed this. I work near the Thames and 99 out of 100 days the sky is dull. Comgratulations on a great shot.
dominique (11414) 2004-03-29 5:20
I like to look at the silhouettes which frame the photograph and which to say of this sky to the powerful colors, good work.
CoolDan (2516) 2004-04-05 15:23
Quel ciel ! Que d'éléments dans cette composition... Le résultat en est très réussi. Nice colors, good silhouette Yitzhak.

This is just wonderful - I really love this picture!
Hanssie (10325) 2004-07-31 9:41
Why didn't I see this one ? ?
Sometimes there are pictures which are on TL (or TE), that you never notice....
What a great silhouettes against a wonderful sky, fine details, I like the lamppost...
Sorry for not having rated this one, my friend !
sn00zie (2384) 2004-08-22 11:18
sharp and beautiful colors in the sky.. crisp and nice!
Xalkida (11744) 2004-09-20 17:54
Wow! Superb colors and sky! Excellent work!
umbrellaphotos (1901) 2004-09-21 10:54
I really like this picture. The blue of the sky and the silhouttes you produced are wonderful. Nice shot.
paido (944) 2004-09-26 23:08
Amazing colors...! have you changed the color balance in post-processing ? It is even more suprising since that blue sky is in UK... land of the clouds and mists.
But I would have croped a little from the dark zone on the bottom.
pione (2031) 2004-12-17 5:08
Spettacolare e ricchissimo gioco di luci, ombre e forme la cui gamma cosi differenziata rende questa immagine molto suggestiva e fresca!
paulspain (625) 2004-12-18 4:51
An excellent picture. The sky and its colors are wonderful. You made a perfect composition.Contrasts and lines are very suggestives.
Firthy (61) 2005-05-06 10:05
Amazing image....would have maybe cropped out a little of the black areas.
sleon (9402) 2005-08-22 14:27
Have just discovered your portfolio. This is wonderful! Really innovative composition and the sky is spectacular. Every detail is beautiful - right down to the lightbulbs, and the reflection against the edge of the capsule. One for my favourites list!
agbonavita (0) 2006-06-02 6:28
Beautiful sunset Y.
The colors degradee are amazing! The blue the yellow the orange! Great.
I saw the work shop made by juniorbonner, I like this ideia but to me the lamp is more pretty, so I made another workout, see there.
balatrek (7455) 2006-06-13 17:05
Bellisma imagen, posee un contraste de colores genial, gran composición y perfecto contraluz, un cielo espectacular, felicidades.
chrisnet (21088) 2006-07-29 18:04
Very nice composition with wonderful sky,good POV and colors,excellent work!
michaelbkrause (124) 2007-01-21 16:48
A beatiful sky and the winding staircase and architecture nearby make this photo excellent.
japiey (10163) 2007-03-28 21:54
This is a good composition. The silhouette looks perfect with the spirals on right, and the angle used highlights the framing.
