una foto molto particolare e originale, sia per la scelta compositiva, sia per la scelta del b&w.
Sembra quasi un'immagine futuristica.

magnificent and very creative approach to Anish Kapoor´s work.For me definitely one of the best shots of "The Bean" I´ve ever seen.
Excellent close-up and framing,which enhance only the abstract feeling of the scene and of this work of art.
Have a nice day

The effect of the reflections in this sculpture is overwhelming. It's like looking at a monochrome surrealistic painting. Absolutely fascinating. Very well seen and handled. And my compliments to Mr Kapoor too.

a fascinating shot this and an inspired presentation. I love the effect and distorted shapes but it is the use of B&W that makes it outstanding so artistic. Wonderfully creative imagery!

This is a surreal and fantastical image, once again the black and white approach is truly perfect. This is like peering into a gate to another dimension, and the light flooding through the bottom part around the people really adds to that effect. Wonderful image, thank you.
All the best

A very original image, for which the black and white works quite well. I like how the human figures are duplicated and distorted all around

This is great Mesut - It's like looking into another dimension, I can understand why it is called Cloud Gate. Excellent in B&W. Warm regards Rosemary

Lep refleks na skulpturi ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan refleks na skulpturi.
Lepa moderna skulptura.
Nice reflection on a sculpture ...
A good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated reflex sculpture.
Beautiful modern sculpture.
All the best.

I guess the term psychedelic is usually connected with wild colours, but this is psychedelic even in B&W. That mirror like surface must have quite peculiar form to create so many distorted reflections. An egg like shape near the top catches attention immediately.

Très bonne exploitation de cette oeuvre d'art et de ces étonnants reflets des visiteurs. Très bel effet et bon choix du noir et blanc.

here you presented a classy one in monochrome. Nice framing. Like the reflection in it. Great tonal quality and sharpness. Very good one with an abstract form. Tfs.

Hello Mesut, a simply stunning presentation,perfectly suited to the mono treatment.
High class work indeed.
mkamionka (35608) 2013-08-28 7:51
I had a pleasure to see it as well, so I have recognized it immediately :) as strange as the shape is :)
I like very much this sculpture if you can call it so. The same artist made even bigger work in the town I live in but it is not even remotely as interesting as this one. It is called Temenos, (CLICK HERE)
Great effect here which shows well all the confusion. Black and white enhanced the artistic effect. I have a shot of this work on TE as well (CLICK HERE)
Very well done,

Hello dear Mesut,
a fascinating world of illusion with some startling hints of reality that play intriguingly with our perception and sense of orientation. The monochrome is wonderful and enhances the extraordinary effect. I like very much the dynamic role of the darker parts and the soft graduation that enriches the image. Framing is most effective too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Its always hard to produce a unique looking photo of such a well photographed subject - but i have to say that i havn't seen this compo before of this famous sculpture.
the bends and twists work well to give it that special look and feel.
cornejo (40953) 2013-08-29 10:27

You have a really good b&w series. This is another good shot! You got a great composition with the reflections. I just love the distortions of the people and the pavement. Really well seen!
GiovanniG (3254) 2013-09-07 20:07
Lovely well thought out capture with it's interesting pov. The format in B&W was also a great decision. Well done Mesut!
Glint (6171) 2013-09-09 9:38
this is great. I appreciate the way you have used your photographer's eye to work with a work of art to create your own work of art. As other have said, it is fascinating and absorbing too.Very well seen,
