More fisheye goodness for you. I really love how this one came out; almost like the building turned into a breaking wave of steel and glass. I'm having way too much fun with this lens.

Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

:highfive: :spin:

Edit 4-19: Removed border and did a few minor touch ups.

I will GLADLY do a critique on this shot. This happens to be one of my favorite shots from the artist and I'm still complaining every so once in a while on how it hasn't been turned into a print yet. I've tried many a time to imagine what this building looks like without the fisheye lens helping it bend reality. I have tried without success. This shot makes it seem like the building is supposed to look like this, as if an architect truly made this happen while all it happens to be is a clever photographer with a fisheye lens.
The high arch of the building is simply frightening, as if it were menacingly pausing above to give you a last second of reprieve and air before crashing down!
Another aspect of the shot that I simply adore is that the sparse vegetation and ground looks like sand and perhaps some sort of sea life. It compliments the 'wave' of the building rather well. The dazzling, varied, reflective surface of the building is choppy and strange but uniform and continuous, quite like water. To compliment this even more, the white and blue sky reflect exquisitely on the surface of the building, making me think of water and froth.
This is truly nothing short of an amazing shot that has captivated me since the moment that I saw it. Before this, and many other shots, I was convinced buildings could not have character or have emotion. This was one of those changing shots, showing me how a slight turn of the camera and a spiffy lens can make all the difference. A simply phenomenal piece, specifically for me!

I always really enjoy when you can make the whole photo look like the sky, and neatly disguise the architecture within the shot.

it is seriously out of focus
smsilverwolf Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
yes that's the only complaint i have on it as well. it would be pretty perfect if the focus on the glass was improved. the sky is clear, which is good.

maybe the glass was just dirty?
