Walking along Georgia street, i was intending to photograph Vancouver's tallest sky scraper.
The photo's didn't turn out as good as i hoped, but when i was walking back to my car i noticed this well lit scene of artwork. Its illuminated very brightly, and i'm still not exactly sure what it was that i was photographing :)
As you can see, its late in the blue hour, so i had to hurry it up a bit. The yellow portion on the bottom is actually a pool of water, about 5 inches deep. So those white lines you see along the bottom are water reflections. The shapes caught my attention right away. I do have others to share, an couple of abstracts will follow in the next few days.
Enjoy your day everyone, thanks for looking!

Une image un peu énigmatique à la première vision mais qui retient l'attention et que l'on prend plaisir à voir et revoir. Très intéressant!

yep, I understand what caught your eye here. Surprising installation.

Nice artwork, I like the 'wave' effect given by all those white curved piece. You also plaied with the colors with the opposition between yellow and the blue hours.
It is funny, although you were using a 10mm lens, I feel compressed. You should have been very close to the subject.

une heure bleue architectural et artistique soignée.
Jeux de couleurs er de lumières, un cadrage parfait qui inclu pas mal de détails avant et arrière plan.

I greet your permanent search of the unusual aspects of the urban constructions. The composition is really original. It is the creative composition which uses skillfully the aesthetic elements. The quality of the photo is irreproachable. Congratulations.
Have a nice day

Beautiful catch, in blue hour, of an original sculpture street art, with good lighting that creates some interesting effects.
The landscape picture has been very graphic.
Have a happy day.

Isn't it interesting that you set out to photograph something special but, in the end, you come away with pictures of something very much more interesting!
This is indeed a fine "abstract" shot with wonderful strong lines and colours. I'm not quite sure what it is either but it is certainly eye-catching.
Good composition, colours and sharpness and perfect exposure considering what must have been very difficult lighting.

I don't think it's a Vancouver Street Art,
I think it's a Craig Picture Art.
Excellent point of view: the yellow pool
is a nice extra, creates the beautiful
reflections and the reflections creates
a nice depht in this picture.
Aslo the moment and timing is great, the
blue sky is a also a nice extra.
The composition and light/exposure are in
a excellent balance....My compliments.

Have a great week - regards Brian.

A strange and fascinating image where you're not sure what is what. I like the lighting and reflections whilst the low angle of view was very well chosen.
francio64 (38254) 2011-08-22 4:56
straordinario effetto grafico con l'immancabile cielo blu delle tue bellissime blue hour di cui tu sei un maestro.
Eccellente gestione della luce e grande resa cromatica.

Nice experimental photograph.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect taken.
What a splendid image, perspective and depth are superb.
Composition and presentation are pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.

On sent un allant vers la droite dans cette belle composition.La photo à l'heure bleur est magnifique et c'est un endroit de la ville qu'il faut visiter.
ikeharel (44023) 2011-08-22 5:53
Reading your note, I came to think you are a tourist in your city, Craig...
Your POV shows a perfect view on this unique piece of art, with reflex of green/yellow waterbad as base, and the tall scrapers decor from BG.
Nice (almost) night scnen,
KLB (23723) 2011-08-22 6:34
Very intriging picture which reveals itself only in the opening of the thumbnail.
Very striking graphism, and the futurist colors fit perfectly with the subject.
Outstanding quality, compliments.

sacimar (25969) 2011-08-22 7:36
I like this kind of street art, different shapes and interesting visual result, it's like an abstract composition, well seen,
holmertz (31302) 2011-08-22 7:42
This is an interesting sculpture. I guess it gets different appearances throughout the day, as the light changes. It would be fascinating to come here at different times and see a partly new work of art every time.
bayno (18334) 2011-08-22 11:08
Hi Craig, beautiful image is striking, very nice color contrast between the floor and the sky, very creative and well-made pictures, interesting artwork, beautiful reflections and also the prospect, have fun, Valter
Cricri (92185) 2011-08-22 12:02
Une compo très artistique, super bien réaliser a heure bleu super contraste avec le jaune, les reflets et les détails, belle réalisation
chawax (16503) 2011-08-22 13:12
A very eye-catching picture ! I love the graphism of the scene and the reflections in the pool. Nice blue hour light too.
Have a nice day,
dkmurphys (42493) 2011-08-22 15:24
Shapes and colors are everywhere around us. You have observe them and captured one great scene. Well done!

npecanhuk (56368) 2011-08-22 17:53
Very interesting and beautiful!
And you took a very attractive picture of that structure!
Exposure, chosen pov and composition are highlights here!
TFS - congrats,
delpeoples (48634) 2011-08-22 19:43
Yee haaa! I wooped out loud for this one! It's WONDERFUL! You know I don't go for the modern architectural stuff but man you've absolutely kicked butt here. The light, the lines, the graphics and the cobalt blue of the sky and yellow floor. Congratulations you deserve alot more than 48 points.
mkamionka (27073) 2011-08-23 1:33
very original both the art and its presentation. Blue hour seems the best time to view this creation. Plenty of interesting lines and shapes resulted in a very interesting geometry here.
Very well captured with some reflection in the FG and a fragment of the blue sky which extra enhances the effect.
Not what I like most yet it is a pleasure to see it.
Bluejeans (64243) 2011-08-23 5:34

williewhistler (9853) 2011-08-23 12:53
Hello Craig,there are so many pleasing facets to this shot,from the stunning blue hour right through to the water reflections,you have got the exposure and composition spot on.
A cracking shot.

Amazing capture of this modern artwork in Vancouver.
Very good pov and perfect compo.
Nice graphical effect.
TFS and best regards
gildasjan (39558) 2011-08-23 13:05
Une image très bien composée avec ces structures et un bel accord de couleurs entre le bleu de ce ciel et la couleurs jaune à la partie inférieure de l'image.
Hansaphotos (6071) 2011-08-23 13:10
Intriguing lines in this well composed picture of the artwork. The yellow really stand out well together with the blue sky. Great effect of the reflections in the pool as well. Great work, and a great substitute for the skyscraper you didn`t got:)
Best regards, Erling
paololg (31446) 2011-08-23 14:12
Ciao dear Craig,

a very spectacular blue hour photo with attractive details and lights, the composition is superb, exciting and impressive shot, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!
adores (30831) 2011-08-23 16:18
It probably works better by this time of the day than during the daylight.The lines and the reflections create a good effect.Also the yellow colour of the pool and the blue sky. A very good composition and exposure.Good that you noticed it!You must have a good series:)!
baddori (19133) 2011-08-23 22:10
Una fontana, elemento architettonico, un gioco di colori,
In un contesto urbano arricchiscono e fanno la nostra gioia.
In questa foto, l'acqua ed il concorso di vari elementi che evidenzi nella nota ..
Uno scatto per caso .che diventa un successo .
Graal (92166) 2011-08-23 23:33
another interesting place in Vancouver. Amazing art. I like the modern elements. Good composition. Well photowork.

A l'heure bleue , les bâtiments et les rues prennent des allures étranges ....Belle recherche graphique et un angle de prise de vue tout en originalité.
Charo (51208) 2011-08-24 9:45
It is an original photo and I think very well done and a great light. If not architecture or sculpture to call what I see, but it is very unique and attractive.
jemaflor (74044) 2011-08-24 9:46
Impressive light well captured, perfect result, interesting graphical result, lights and colors are well managed, tfs, bravo !
mauro61 (52545) 2011-08-24 9:48
una esplosione di luci e forme in una immagine composta con un'ottima tecnica.
Mi piace molto il taglio e la resa dei colori con il blu del cielo a fare da sfondo.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4612) 2011-08-25 6:44
Such a work of art! Your craft is simply impregnable. Love the reflections, colors, lines! all of these elements are put together in one sophisticated and stunning photograph! Great capture!
Have a great day,
Urs (14078) 2011-08-25 19:24
Wow Craig, that is an very impressive shot, the FG really is captivating. Superb POV, vibrant colour hues and fine sharpness, congrats that is a master shot.
P.S. Due to workload I had no time to visit TE for months, hopefully I can find a bit of time in between work and sleep hahaha
kato (9532) 2011-08-27 3:42
You're capturing well this art work by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's impressive and interesting to see Art design with daring design and scraper of the background. The entire is harmonized well by beautiful color balace and composition. And, the reflection projected to water gives additional good mood.
wolf38 (29116) 2011-08-28 2:44
Hi craig. Modern, futuristic world. Lines, shapes, glass, - and above all colors. I am always amazed about these urban changes. Your Photo is a very good example of this trend. Well done. Worth seeing. Rgds, Wolfgang.
