Nicely captured to show how much it is a part of the town. Even the scale fits the town. It doesn't tower above it in way that sets it that much apart. It all comes down to a nice human scale in this quaint street. Well done.

I like both of these shots of Harpa. I really like the perspective in this one, a forced one, as the lobby narrows and proceeds into the distance. The light is managed well, with the outside light not overexposing the windows and the darks not being too dark in the rest of the interior. Nicely done.

Good point of view for both gates. Both streets angle nicely from here to direct us around the scene. I love all the buildings that all seem to tilt and their own angles, including the two towers. It has a cartoonish feel of an idyllic old village scene. I wonder how the scene would look if you were in the center, along the railing, if the split would look stronger. Although the way the two roads converge from this point creates a strong feeling of two different places mashed together, which I like.

Cool spiral staircase. I like the tones you have in this and the way the detail is captured. It looks like a fairytale castle's stairs. One thing that I see while looking at this is perhaps to have been a little to the right or leaning the camera out a little more to get the bottom more in the lower left corner to create that diagonal as it spirals down into the darkness. But I still like it. I've had it open for a while, while I work, coming back to it over and over to examine it and get drawn in by it.

Nice haunted wild landscape you have here. The atmosphere conveys a sense of cold and after a storm just as the cabins are here after their lives. It's very picturesque. My taste might want a little more foreground, especially since it looks so richly textured, to lead into the scene and into the mountains towering above in the background. But it still nicely conveys that "western" feel of the remains of the past.

Nice peaceful view you've captured. It almost gives me the feeling of something from the beginning of time. Some plants on the side, the mist and light shining through it and this calm lake amid the silhouettes of mountains. I wouldn't guess it's Switzerland. Very nice.

The point of view combined with the clouds gives it the look of a giant industrial age cooling tower. Add to that the colors and sharpness and detail you've captured and its surroundings gives it the powerful fortress like feeling that it should project.

Good detail, color and lighting, from this chosen point of view. The way we can't see what is in the courtyard lets the imagine fly. It gives it more of a mystical illumination as we don't know what's out there but the light is streaming in through the arches strongly. It does leave me wanting a little wider but I see you were already shooting very wide and this was a tight space. Well done.

Beautiful colors and beautiful landscape. The way you've captured the layers, the deepest green in the foreground, the yellow green in the next plane and Monte Amiata in the next based on colors and tones and then the sky is well done. It's like a stage scene. This capture does justice to that beautiful area.

The city that looks so massive at street level looks so small from so high. It's incredible how many buildings there are. Really cool cool view to get the density that is Tokyo. Even Tokyo Tower looks so small way out there in the distance. I can see why SkyTree was necessary with Tokyo Tower so crowded in like it is. But it's just the detail in all the buildings that really gets me here. I love it.

A concrete jungle or a concrete desert, either way I like the atmosphere here. The person in the open sun surrounded by all this oppressive concrete. The skyscrapers and the empty blue sky really add to the impersonal feeling beneath the buildings. It also doesn't look real because of the lack of anything natural. Excellent point of view.

Beautiful framing with the trees and nearer rim. The point of five offers a vista that lets the various rims of the canyon to dance back and forth into the distance. The atmospheric perspective is controlled nicely, too, for that added depth and an idea of the vast scale of this natural feature.

Good point of view. The normal view almost always seen is from the front or more near the building that makes it seem like a much flatter landscape. I like the contrast of the blackness of the church with the green around it. And, again, this point of view really puts it in its location much better than most of the other pictures I've seen of it.

Nicely composed from this location. I like the way the bridge leads across the bottom but brings me into the view of the city. It's also gives a good sense of scale of the pre-industrial town and the industrial era steel structure. The lighting is good, too.

It's definitely a scenic and idyllic looking town. I like the perspective you've captured here, with the town and mountains almost all pointing to a perspective point in the upper right distance. The colors are nicely rendered, in the buildings, foliage and water, all combining to a pleasant feeling. Nicely captured.

What an unearthly landscape. I like the cracked dry ground and the tone of what looks like either early or late in the day. The camp is so lonely out there in the middle of this place adding to the inhospitable feeling. Maybe I would have liked a little more sky and a slightly lower point of view but I still think it captures the atmosphere well.
pamastro (7290) 2014-09-30 14:39
You've captured a nice relaxing and cool feeling, as you describe. It has the feel of a place to find some nice respite from the heat and bustle of the city. Also, the way the light filters through and the bare trees gives it a mysterious feeling. Almost like a magical wood that is alive with its own spirit. The point of view with the rolling ground helps create these nice patterns of shadow and light onto the ground. Nicely done.

I really like the weight the buildings have in this shot. The massive monotony of the wall of bricks pressing down on the concrete and asphalt below is good. The thin trees and tiny people convey a sense of scale, an inhuman scale, in a world of asphalt, concrete and bricks. Everything living seems oppressed by the feeling of an intense heat and light. It's a nice capture of the feeling of this massive block.
