About the Image(s)

Sculpture in front of the Gehry Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain. Did not quite get the angle and content that I wanted, but still like the result. ?

What I like is the blue reflection in the right side, very nice and gives it an overall cool mood.   Posted: 09/08/2023 21:28:50

Interesting/unusual image - that captures my interest. My first thought was ball-bearings. Nice that you juxtaposed this sculpture against the building behind - which itself is a work or art! I might play with B&W (the color in this doesn't add anything - if anything the blue sky might pull the viewer's gaze away from the image). If you were to shoot this again - I wonder about some close ups shots of few balls - it would be a very abstract image that might intrigue the viewer!   Posted: 09/10/2023 04:13:40

Howdy, Gene, this is a sharp image; good reflections and an interesting building.   Posted: 09/17/2023 16:18:54

Hi Gene,
The balls are beautiful, and they stack up in and out just like the architecture of the building. I like the shiny metal of the balls, and each of them contains the image reflection of the port on the opposite side. By looking at the balls, I can imagine the location and surrounding of the museum.
Although your image is about the balls, the design and architecture of the building seem to trigger the viewers the desire to see more. For this image, I don't have any suggestion for improvement, but I do wish to see more of the architecture of the musuem. Thanks for sharing your nice shot!   Posted: 09/17/2023 22:59:46
