The Schloßbrucke (Palace Bridge) in Berlin was built in the early 1800s and designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel to lead to the palace that was located on Museum Island. It is considered the most beautiful out of the numerous bridges in Berlin.
Atop the supporting pillars of the bridge are eight groups of figures fashioned from white Carrara marble, all sculpted between the years 1845-57. Eight different sculptors were chosen to create the masterpieces, in accordance with designs suggested by Schinkel himself. They show the development of a hero from early youth to manhood, and then to death on the battlefield and the taking of his body to Olympus.
Here, captured in the blue network of pipes you can see one of those sculptures called 'Nike instructs the boy in heroic history' (Emil Wolff, 1847).

I like the blue monochromatic color of the sky and pipes. Excellent sharpness and graphism with effective tight framing and excellent saturation. Nice framing of the bg angel with the fg pipes and the other angel at right as well! Tfs!

Bonjour, chère Gosia,
Voilà une image qui ne manque pas de talent et d'originalité.
Ces statues romantiques présentées à travers un ensemble de tuyauteries ne manquent pas d'intérêt.
Bravo pour l'originalité.
Très bonne journée.

è indiscutibile che hai un grande senso estetico e che riesci sempre a proporre immagini originali e ben composte.
In questa trovo straordinario l'accostamento tra la struttura metallica e la statua alata che non solo è un confronto di epoche diverse, ma soprattutto nella composizione diventa un contrasto di colori bello ed efficace.
Un ottimo lavoro che riesce a valorizzare nella migliore delle maniere entrambi i soggetti.
Ciao e buona domenica

A clever graphical composition; the blue pipes make a superb frame for the white statue. Excellent technical presentation. Have a pleasant Sunday.

Hello TakerGosia. Eyes to see, cameras to take pictures. Blue tubes - and white angel. What a surprising combination. Well seen and presented.

una cornice davvero molto originale per questa statua.
Bello il contrasto dei colori e, soprattutto, per la differenza tra i materiali.
Una bella idea ben realizzata.

Its not often we get to see a winged angel like this sitting in such an industrial setting, and it creates a fine contrast, of both the subject and of the colours. This is an excellent combination that works really well!

rewelacyjne polaczenie motywow industrialnych i sztuki!Podoba mi sie rowniez sam kadr,jak i kolorystyka zdjecia.Szczegolnie widowiskowo wyglada kontrast pomiedzy roznymi odcieniami blekitu.
Nowe i na pewno oryginalne spojrzenie na Berlin i jego atrakcje.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milej niedzieli

now that is an original composition with the blue pipes making a very nice frame for the marble figure.A very well spotted photograph.
Kindest regards Les.

I love this original and fascinating frame within the frame. Your composition makes the blue pipes as attractive as the elegant sculpture they are framing. There's superb depth and excellent sharpness that, along with marvellous vivid colours, invite us to study this composition and each of its elements in a very agreeable way. The light is lovely and affects the colours in an invigorating way. You've managed the intricate demands of exposure very aptly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
jacquest (18071) 2013-05-26 14:12
I like the tight framing and the mix of techhnology and art in this image. The statue with it's open wings looks like a giant bird getting aloft after a rest on the tubes. Good light management for an image of very good quality.
Urs (14082) 2013-05-26 20:35
Art and Technic united in one photograph with bold colour tone contrasts and high sharpness. Very good photo job

Une étonnante association entre ces tuyaux bleus et cette sculpture d'un blanc immaculé. Une composition très originale qui attire les regards.
timecapturer (44195) 2013-05-27 4:49
original and compelling POV this. The mix of blue and white is striking as is the mixture of man-made elements. Creative and fascinating imagery!
Have a great week - Brian.

Une image qui ne manque pas d'originalité, bon coup d'il et cadrage de la statue blanche entre les tuyaux, superbe contraste des couleurs

White statue contrast with blue pipes nicely. Something like mixing elements of old and new. It's a very unique piece of picture.
mcmtanyel (9915) 2013-05-27 17:31
Nice contrast between industrial pipes and a work of art. Industrial pipes framing a work of art... There is an object lesson here somewhere but I can't quite figure it out.
Graal (94974) 2013-05-27 22:49
ciekawa rame stworzylas dla tej rzezby w glebi. Takie fajne polaczenie sztuki z industrialem. Dobra notka i jakosc fotografii.

Interesting capture from Berlin ! Classic versus modernism. Good idea that the Germans have kept those tubings from East German periods.
TFS and best regards

superb framing with the blue pipes for the white statue.
abmdsudi (38674) 2013-05-30 8:29
The blue pipes are so dominating, catchy and vibrant to draw attention making the scuptures look smaller but the interplay of colors and contrast is so splendid. Superb framing, an opportunity well taken spot on details and razor sharp throughout the picture. A quality shot so well done. Congrats
nikkitta (12640) 2013-05-30 18:12
Creative way to present frame and back of the statue
Super, hipper clearness to admire also the brushwork on the pipes
Well done, congrats

Witaj, prawdopodobnie tez byłam na tym moście, ale nie zauważyłam tych błękitnych rur. Ciekawa kompozycja, znakomity pomysł i wykonanie.
siolaw (38008) 2013-06-02 1:34
You integrated the blue tubukar structures in the compo with classic sculpture as a good focus point.
Sharp and clean job!
sevy (15287) 2013-06-12 0:59
I like the idea and the fun of this composition playing with the blue pipes to provide a frame to an old white statue.
PaulVDV (20231) 2013-06-29 2:37
Normally these pipes wouldn't be much interesting. But here they function as an excellent frame for the view of the statue.
Also their blue colour is striking.
Best regards, Paul
