Like my earlier photo "Modern Melbourne", this one too was taken next to Federation Square in the city centre. I decided to post it because of its strong design elements but I must add that the sunlight was very bright on that day and the image had a washed out look about it as far as the woman's blouse and skin tone were concerned. Photoshop helped to some degree but it's still not the best. On the other hand I hope you like the graphic elements.
I was inspired by Wolfgang's photos when I took this photo and the one earlier on. I think his photos of human figures in the urban environment speak volumes about modern life in the urban environment.
N.B. The red and yellow colours are the reflections from a sightseeing tourist bus that had stopped on Flinders Street.The above colours are the reflections of the buildings across the road.The "arrows" are of highly polishes metal.

Hello Klaudio, Indeed, the photo in Wolfgang style. Interesting strong elements these three colourful bumerangs, amazing reflections of the passing bus. Great timing - the photographer and these reflections look fantastic.

very nice the timing of the scene with the upper part of the woman to outline pefect against the middle strong design elements that decorate the area. Excellent the light and the colour management with the quality of the image to be unique.

Une belle mise en scène avec ces 3 "boomerangs" colorés se détachant bien sur le fond noir, et cerise sur la gateau la présence humaine qui ajoute une note inédite.
j'aime ces photos de rue de tous les jours.

I like your idea! The surreal reflections stand out nicely on the dark background. As for the slightly overexposed person - well it makes her look like a fairy so maybe it's not so bad after all? :-)

It certainly helps to read your note to fully understand this picture. The combined effect of metal and reflections is stunning. The reflected colours have been distorted into marvellously beautiful designs. The woman's arms may be slightly overexposed, but it would be crazy to complain of such a minor detail in a photo like this.

Nadam se da se Wolfgang neće ljutiti, ali prevaziao si inspiraciju!!!!
Kao to i sam reče, na eni je prejak kontrast, ali za pozadinu je fantastičan!

Ciao Klaudio,questa foto è un grande regalo per chi ama i riflessi come me,davvero geniale la cattura dei riflessi del tipico bus turistico rosso in quelle freccie,esposizione e dettagli perfetti!! Buon weekend e complimenti,Luciano

You certainly timed this well to catch the reflective red bus which makes a strong impact on this scene....and one which is definitely in the style of Wolfgang. A fine tribute indeed. The sun may have been a bit harsh on the skin, but that is but a minor technical detail, the overall result and concept is what shines through. (Yep, pun intended. :)) A fun and fresh take on "photographing the photographer," that personal touch is well perceived. Have a good one. Take care.

Excellent close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done. The photographer adds nice life to the scene.
Very well done.

I like the 3 stylized boomerang shapes and the indigenous art on them and the traditional red black and ochre colors. Not so sure about the tourist. Might have tried to get them standing between the boomerangs. Good sharpness and well framed and composed overall. Good density levels and punchy light contrasts too. Tfs!

Hello Klaudio. Thanks for the link to this photo. I had not seen this photo before, because I was sick for some time, - because of a knee surgery. Yes, in the cities is always something going on, we can see so many interesting things. Of course, this type photos may not be an obsession. Anyway, people are the most interesting.

ispirazione giusta, lo stile di Wolf è molto originale e in questa foto sei riuscito a imitarlo molto bene.
Bellissimi i riflessi sulle frecce.
PS grazie per il tuo commento, mi è piaciuto molto, quello era il senso che volevo dare alla foto.

I liked the use of those elements in a repetitive mood , the personage is nice here. I liked the light and the quality of the compo. a version without the personage or showing it in another point would be interesting too.
