About the Image(s)

The London Eye is a large big wheel that holds many cabins and it was erected in 2000 for the millennium and it was expected to be there for a couple of years. It is still there and as popular as during its first year. I took this in June 2016 on a Nikon D800 a sequential shot at 1/500th at f11. I played around with shadows and highlights, brightness and contrast and then colourised it using channels

I have a lot of trouble looking at this image. It sure has 3D but the perspective leaves me wondering how it was taken. It feels to me like you might have been laying on your back under these supports looking up. I tried flipping it over so it looked like the wheel was up in the air but then the 3D was all wrong. Anyway it is 3D and I would say it looks like a good surreal art image.   Posted: 11/06/2020 18:13:07

Brian, I also have a problem with 3D in this image. I see nice 3D in the foreground; but the background does not come through to me. I might have tried to add a 3D sky.   Posted: 11/09/2020 16:28:18

The first impression was that it looks like a part of UFO. The unusual angle of the big wheel. The image has some depth. A nice blue sky with white clouds would have given a better image. I tried some gamma correction.   Posted: 11/19/2020 13:04:08

I too like the 3D effect in the wires in the bottom half of the image. The heavy poles that go from the center to the left and right sides bother me though...they interfere with the flow to the cabins at the top. They "disturbed" my comfort in understanding how I should be viewing the image. I'd like it if the fat poles just weren't there because they take me away from the delicate wires and cabins.   Posted: 11/28/2020 23:46:52

It's difficult to get good detail in a contrasty image like this. The reflections on the support beam show good detail. Well done!   Posted: 11/30/2020 10:59:06
