WoW! This is amazing. Your post processing and POV are just incredible and the effect both tantalising and mesmerising. Beautiful tones and shades in this original and stunning masterpiece. Awesome! I Love It!

amazing depth and the sensation can be felt even just by looking at your photos. I guess it is not a place for people with fear of heights. I love the sepia color in here which highlight the structure and all the lines of the composition.
Wonderful job! Congratulations!

Hi Michael,This way to show us La Pedrera is absolutely fantastic! What a large view on its heart,the surround effect is magnificent,i like a lot your work in PP too,a very professional post! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Wowee, zowee...this is a great shot, Mike. I'm not too crazy about Gaudi, to be honest. His work reminds me just a bit too much of amusement parks and I never did like those...BUT this is great. A superb pov and even beter desaturation. Now it reminds me of Metropolis! Haha...worlds collide...
danos (86739) 2014-02-06 4:53
great the POV of Gaudi's La Pedrera with the architectural style of the building to be presented superb.I like the creative perspective as the depth too.
Sergiom (60106) 2014-02-06 4:56
Une photo des plus spectaculaire. Le point de vue est superbe et la lentille donne une vue très large de ce superbe bâtiment. Le traitement sépia donne un petit côté vintage très intéressant.

Well, hello, Mike.
Good to see you posting again.
This is one of those shots that just leaps off the monitor, even as a thumbnail!
The viewpoint gives it an amazing sense of depth; not one for those who suffer with vertigo! Those window 'eyes', with their sloping lids, give a sense of sliding off into the depths; Paradise Lost!!
The sepia tint is unusual, effective and gives it a sense of age.
Have a great day,

lovely use of the wide angle lens from a very well chosen view point has enabled you to capture this iconic building in real style.
The choice of slight toning is perfect for this subject helping as it does to accentuate the beautiful curves and lines.

This is spectacular! What a great POV and angle. The foreground details make this all the more dramatic. A fine, fine photo!

una foto straordinariamente curata sia in fase di ripresa che nella postproduzione.
Una eccellente trasformazione in bianco e nero di quello che era già straordinario all'atto della ripresa.
Ciao e buona serata

Hello, a brilliant b and w image with such a unique perspective that demonstrates the genius of Gaudis' architecture. Imagine the intelligence and creative genius that went in to creating this building. I am wondering where you are standing to be able to capture this scene so well. Also good choice to place the courtyard on the diagonal.
tenretin (2408) 2014-02-06 8:39
You did there is a picture that is both original and worrying time. This is not the image I have in mind for this beautiful building but yet it is a photo that captures some of the spirit of place ... and Architect who knows?
Noel_Byrne (24277) 2014-02-06 9:15
Whoa....I look at this and it brings up many different feelings. For one of course, the appreciation of the amazing and unique architecture, this is something else, and your view is just superb. But the color treatment you have on it here makes me feel slightly on edge, as if I am looking into a scene from a horror movie. It feels slightly like a place that may not be real, and right away I think of the movie Silent Hill. That's a great emotion to be able to evoke from a photo, so I am really in awe of the skill to do that.
Excellent shot, thanks for sharing this.
All the best
PaulVDV (22141) 2014-02-06 9:32
A presentation of La Pedrera like I've never seen before!
Excellent use of your wide angle lens.
Clearly a very unusual and spectacular POV for this highly dramatic picture.
Best regards, Paul

adidas5nb (5399) 2014-02-06 10:45
thats a great graphic shot.love the pov and the pp work.very nicely seen.love the frame.
krzychu30 (15498) 2014-02-06 11:01
now I see what I missed being in Barcelona last time.
Superb perspective and PP work!The combination of strong graphics and color scheme makes this shot really incredible!
ourania (31073) 2014-02-06 11:17
welcome back! I'd only seen this building from the classic point of view, the upward view from the patio towards the blue sky. Your composition and treatment are fantastic and offer an original and captivating view downwards. I like very much the way this huge whole is lying in the frame and the enhancement of the perspective by every means possible. The viewer is drawn into a fascinating play od dynamism and drama. The choice of the tint and the atmosphere are superb too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
Macpil (6) 2014-02-06 11:28
Une belle photo : un lieu étrange, presque de la science fiction. Une impression renforcée par le traitement en noir et blanc. I love.
yquem46 (38734) 2014-02-06 11:56
An original and outstanding shot of this famous artwork by Gaudi
Excellent idea to convert it in b&w

macjake (56590) 2014-02-06 13:33
great to see you back!

how'd you get this photo?
I'm still not 100% sure i know what i'm looking at though..are you on the roof? a balcony? whats going on here? haha
looks awesome, wicked shades and tones. there's a rustic feel here that brings it to the forefront.
icesurfer (550) 2014-02-06 15:05
A wonderful capture of this masterpiece. Great choice of POV, and the ultra-wide lens really does full justice to this amazing work of art.
The B&W gives an additional twist that reminds me of the Escher's works.
An amazing picture, and thanks for sharing!
npecanhuk (65530) 2014-02-06 15:15

un point de vue très original,avec une vision circulaire donnant un bel apperçut de l'architecture de Gaudi
annjackman (19635) 2014-02-07 8:10
Really missed you on TE so glad that you are back, and with a stunning image. Love the toning and treatment that emphasises all that I enjoy about Gaudi's architecture. Very futuristic and slightly unearthly look to this one.
Kind Regards, Ann
SnapRJW (31147) 2014-02-07 9:05
Brilliant PP work Mike and a perfect compliment to this finely composed shot. I love the feeling of depth and attendant vertigo your vantage point creates. Everything seems to be in the process of being sucked into the courtyard. Good to see you back with such a powerful image! Warm regards Rosemary
adores (37093) 2014-03-05 16:55
I've never been here, but this pov is fantastic and I like the PP. The place looks even more impressive with such colour and contrast. Good work!
