Love the lines, shapes and colours in this. Makes a good abstract.

Hello, Birgit. Looking in a different way will often reveal something that others might not see, and this does make an excellent abstract that has interesting lines and contrasts, as well as minimal colours. You have good exposure and detail throughout. I like the way you have framed the construction with some of the bars, but in my modification I rotated and cropped it a little, just to eliminate some of the outer distractions, and also to get that main bar on the diagonal and falling into the corners. After that, I only adjusted the contrast a little. My second modification is in black-and-white, which I think the image lends itself to nicely.

i like abstracts extracted from architectural detail and i am usually the first to suggest adding diagonals into the composition but on this occasion i think the front diagonal bracing is a little overpowering and is obscuring some of the interesting details such as those gorgeous curved riveted trusses.
given that this was the best abstract selection from the structure, which was probably the case as they are often complex, i agree with Pamela above in that it would make a great mono.

nice effort, its always looking up, you see many things that others miss.
