    I like this composition although it is a tad long for my screen and I have to scroll back and forth - regardless the tonal simplicity and architecture is very nice.

    Arne, I've made the image smaller, I hate scrolling images.

    Carlos, I took a shot right before this then saw the bird coming into the frame and snapped it.

    Man i don't know how you do it...but you just keep impressing the H*&^ out of me...I wish i could pick your brain when it comes to "THE EYE" you hav in your pictures.
    Well done

    Note: if you are a Powerbook User 17" and above that picture actually look small ! Had to scale down all my picture to accomodate the many PC Users out there regular screens, meh such is life !

    Gorgeous sky echoed in the windows. The gull flying makes the shot though. Polarizing filter?

    Philippe, I use PC with a screen resolution of 1920x1200, it's pretty rare stuff doesn't fit on the screen for me, but sometimes I find a photoblog displaying pictures taller than 1200 pixels! It's a pet peeve of mine.

    I've added a larger version and, just for kicks, an uncropped version.

    Robert, thanks, I used a polarising filter, the conditions were ideal. I didn't have to do any post processing on this. (Correction! I did lighten the gull in post so it matched the luminance of the building)

    Thx for adding that Larger Version...amazing...nice cropping as well i dont think the bottom of the building would have made it "THE SHOT".
    I invite you to make a quick visiting on my photoblog...im actually from Hamilton, Ontario...45min away from ya.
    Cheers

    I love the blue/white colors here. Such clean whites and such vivid blues. Fantastic!

    Miles, superb clarity. Infact it's so clear and such a deep blue that it showed me my screen needs cleaning! So thanks for that too! Brilliant.

    Great shot, the contrast between the white of the building and the amazing deep blue of the sky is fantasic.

    Beautiful colours and good composition. The bird is great. Nice one!

  • GeckoZ

    Nice contrast of blue and white! Did you change the colour of the bird while post-processing?

    2006-03-16

  • Luisa

    Well, this was a wise cropping. Curves, angles, white and blue are perfect.

  • Justin Gaynor

    Beautiful capture. The single bird against the dark blue is elegant and strong.

  • pfong

    This is beautiful. Simple and striking. Very nearly a duotone of whites and blues. Great shot.

    Checking out your site after you left a comment on mine - this shot is stunning!

    I love the minimalist colors, and the bird really makes the shot. I think I actually prefer the uncropped version because it isn't quite as symmetric diagnolly.
