About the Image(s)

Here's another architectural image for this month.
On a recent trip to New York I visited Roosevelt Island, situated in the East River between Manhattan and Queens. Cornell University has built a new campus with modern futuristic architecture. Once again I was attracted to the circles, lines and patterns.

Yep - they sure make for an interesting and varied composition.   Posted: 04/02/2021 22:59:20

This is a nice image depicting circles, lines and surfaces. I suppose you have corrected the perspective by putting the vertical lines parallel to each other. I wonder if cropping a bit of the right side could be helpful to the composition?   Posted: 04/07/2021 02:46:21

I like all the lines and curves going on. I think that a vertical crop may enhance the emphasis on these.   Posted: 04/07/2021 09:51:15

Your crop does work well by eliminating some of the distracting objects. Thank you.   Posted: 04/07/2021 10:57:28

I think a slightly closer crop would work better to focus more on the design. Maybe a little taken from both sides, on the right to the first line in the building, and on left to the shadow. The blues and silver-grays are very nice, but I also wonder about converting to B/W.   Posted: 04/07/2021 16:09:27

I hadn't seen Bob's crop! I think it's a good suggestion.   Posted: 04/07/2021 16:11:06

I'm biased because of your last month's image, and that's why I don't find this photo so powerful. I think that there are too many elements that don't work well together. There is also too much empty space on the right. Maybe cropping just on the main round element could help concentrate the viewer's eye and avoid unnecessary distractions.   Posted: 04/07/2021 18:49:54
