Cloud Gate

By RobboB  
Another from my trip to Chicago last week. This is a corner of the Anish Kapoor sculpture titled the Cloud Gate (the polished steel on the left); with a regular skyscraper on the right. The whole sculpture looks like an enormous seed pod. I may post a picture of it as a variant.

As shown in V2 it's a beautiful but familiar sight here. V1 is something else, suggestive, enigmatic, mysterious. I really covet this one, photographing sculpture is an art in its own right as this demonstrates.

Version one for me Smile

Great play of lines and nice tones.

I think you can exploit further the "cloud". The form of the buildings reflected on it looks surreal. Look at it in a tighter crop excluding the skyscraper.

Congratulation RobboB.
