Nicely done! Spot On! Click!!!
Thanks, Joe and Greg.
Joe - Indeed it was! The lighting was very low, and there was an enormous range as you can see. It was also hand held. We'll be going to Barcelona again in May and I hope to get a better shot then with my 20D and a wider angle lens.
I look forward to your shot with the 20D Jim but I think this will be hard to beat. Another cracker.
Beautiful light and shadow detail and a nice angle .
You've done really well to control the light in this shot.Plenty of detail. Feel myself ducking as I walk through the picture.
Love this, the varying degrees of shadow highlight is outstanding, and a so natural curve leads you through.
I like the tones and curves in this
Simply a perfect one for me.
Thanks, Pauline, Paul and Dave.
great shot, love the light and composition
Great detail and excellent considering handheld!
Excellent exposure and composition, wonderful detail. Well done Jim.
Thanks, Cornelia, Mark and Eric.
wonderfull composition well spotted. sandyb
nice shot jim of a truly beautiful building.
i trust you got some shots on the roof?
Thanks, Sandy and James.
James - Yes, one or two hundred
Excellent shot Jim - the composition really draws you in and the exposure is perfect. Barcelona is at the top of my Must Visit list.
Thanks, Nic. It's my favourite city, with Venice a close second.
Great composition and very well handled lighting. Well done, Jim.
Unusual image Jim. Difficult lighting, but well composed.
Really nice colours and detail. Jim. Like the way the lighting on the floor is used to pick up the archway curves. click. John
Interesting subject. Good angle. Well presented.
Makes a great image, Jim.
Wonderful control of exposure and great composition. Great shot.
very well controlled shot
Nicely exposed. Great angle. Like it.
excellent composition and beautifully managed lighting
Thanks, Mike, Pete, John, Pisau, Iain, Kevin, Nicholas, Bernie and Connie.
Winning shot. Well taken.
Great shot. I really like the brick work and the lighting.
Superb shot, Jim. well lighted. Great Architecture too.
Large one is good looking at.
Thanks, Phil, Nick, Phil and Jan.
This looks great in the larger format Jim . Love the curves, lighting and detail . Did you use a tripod . ?x
SUPERB LIGHT!! You've really captured the architectural structure well, and even that feeling in there....
My fav of all your pieces so far....
very big click. =)
p/s: Do u remember how u had exposed for this shot? As in where do u meter the lighting from?
Thanks, Mavis and Sze.
Sze - This was taken in August 2002, and I haven't a clue what the exposure was. If I was taking the same shot now, however, I'd meter for the brighter pillars in the centre or possibly even the highlights on the floor. I'd use a small aperture to get good depth of field, and would probably have to use a high ISO setting of 400 or even more. I'd also bracket my shots by a full stop under and over. You can always draw up detail in underexposed shots later on in PS, but you can never put detail back into burntout areas. The beauty of digital, of course, is that you can immediately see your results and redo it if necessary.
Thanks Jim for sharing with me your thoughts on how you would capture this....really appreciate it.
I was there in end 2002 too, but didn't manage to get a good shot of it due to my limited knowledge of photography. I find metering in these conditions particularly tricky, and i find your advice on bracketing such shots very useful. Thanks once again. =)
Delighted to be of help, Sze.
Brilliant composition. Excellent lighting work.. Well done Jim.
Excellent composition a wonderful picture.
Nicely captured Jim.
Hi Jim - lovely light, shapes and detail in this. Would have maybe liked to see the top of the closest arch, but nicely different this one.
Its all been said Jim,
But i do remember this as being one of my favourites.
You have really handled the lighting and exposure well in this shot.
It's even been said that it's all been said Jim, so I can't think of anything to add other than "excellent"!
Thanks, Su, Lucien, Andrew, Paul, Andy, Tony and Gareth.
Great lighting and composition.
Unusual place, wonderful composition and great shoting point. Perfect lighting and color. Well done Jim
Malik & Mary.
Thanks, Saskia and M&M.
Very interesting find, Jim - really like the spots of light on the floor.
Click and congrats on the RC
Brilliant, Jim. What I particularly like - and admire - about this is your ability to create such a superb composition out of a scene that itself has such a complex composition. Exceptionally measured exposure, as well. A stunning shot.
Thanks, Ian - to be absolutely honest I tend to take a number of shots from different angles and with different exposures. I can then select the one that I think is best. And of course there's always Photoshop
Jim the instant I saw this I knew it was yours remembered (not bad for an old git) it from the last time, Difficult shot well handled. Nice you posted it again.
Excellent shot with great lighting, Superb.
Thanks, Gerry and Yogendra.
Congratulations on being able to take a photo inside Casa Mila without other people lurking around. By the way, I live near Barcelona.
The image is exceptional with a perfect exposure.
What unusual architecture Jim its really nice.
Very well photographed, Jim, the composition is just right.
Thanks, Antonio, Kin and Steve.
Antonio - That was the biggest problem of all - I had to be VERY patient!!
Stunning composition with handling of light.
interesting design and composition.......the lighting is good too
Your description says it all Jim. Cracking comp. Superb shot.
I like the combination of shapes and lighting in this image.
Jim I really like this, superbly captured, fabulous lighting and composition.
Jim I do not usually swear, but, this bloody marvelous. Oops. John
Very good indeed, great control of exposure
Thanks, Peter, John, Geoff, Ken, Katie, John and Sam. Much appreciated.
Superb! I've been there, and really liked the spaces but alas took no pictures. The combination of curves and lighting here is sensational, well done!
Hello Jim - back in the fold!
Dynamic shot this - I like it nearly as much as your guitar EC
Great lighting composition and everything really
SUPERB, click (*:*)
Thanks, Will, Dave and Magda.
Dave - great to see you back.
Detail and light are superb as is the colours of the stone,
Thanks, Don and Mary.
Top marks Jim.
great image Jim....CLICK
Excellent composition and great lighting.
Great light and form - steve
Thanks, Silvi and Steve.
Nice curves , Thanks, clk
I missed this one Jim - its a cracker, well done
Wow - stunning, absolutely stunning
Belated thanks, John, Steve and Ian.
I've only just come across this shot which I think is a super use of composition, light and texture. I have a very similar shot that I took there a few years ago on slide film with a compact camera but it doesn't quite have the detail your does. Gaudi's work is very photogenic.
Belated thanks, Simon
