That nice little Fibonacci thing

In architectural photography, there are no excuses for poorly composed photos. You’ve got plenty of time (at least you should), your “victim” can’t run or fly away. The last days, I processed some photos I took at Hoofddorp – on my facebook page and on 500 px, I asked for your opinion. Many people participated, wrote comments and voted – thanks everybody! So this is my final version:

Hoofddorp

As you can see, I added a very subtle blue tone and said goodbye to all additional elements in the upper left. I emphasized the structure of the building to use the main pillar as a guiding line.

And, what I like the most: It is a nice example of using the Fibonacci spiral as a means of composition:

Thank you!

When I started sharing my pictures on 500px.com five years ago, I wondered how in the world it was possible to get 1000 likes … I got maybe one or two for my first pics, sometimes even none at all. Well, I worked hard over the last years, improved my skills (and my vision), and today I passed the mark of 30.000 likes. Not too bad for a non-professional…

This is a chance to say thank you – to everybody who did like one of my images, named it a favourite, or commented on it. Thank you to the guys at 500px.com who run this platform which may have its flaws … but which is still the best open photo platform on the web. And, thank you to all the people who share their images, their ideas, their opinions, and their knowledge on the web.

Please feel free to comment on my pics, share them, like them … every appreciation is appreciated!

Aachener Dom

 

How do you like this one? I tried to create some fine art work out of a pic of the Aachen Cathedral  (a wonderful church, by the way). Usually, I take pics of modern buildings for my work; applying the principles of b/w fine art to an old building (the oldest part dates back to the year 800) proved to be quite a challenging task.

Please tell me if you like this or not – I’m very interested to hear your opinion.
