FishEye & Art 5: Ceiling

By conrad  
This one's for Theo4image - I did lay down flat on my back for this one, Theo, so I hope you like it! Wink

No. 5 in my series, taken with my fisheye lens in a rather unusual German museum (see the description of the first shot in the series).

This is the ceiling in one of the many little buildings the museum has divided it's collections over. This particular building was empty at the time, but I didn't mind that at all!

Again, if you see specks, it's real dust on a real roof, and not on my sensor, and also not noise!

Why did I present it like this? Initially, I wanted to rotate and crop it to get it straight. But that was going to result in a lot of image loss, and then I thought: why not rotate it but not crop it, and have a black background instead, and no border? And lo and behold, that worked quite well, I think.

Comments and mods welcome, as always.

Thanks for looking,

Conrad, this is just great! I can imagine a set of this style, maybe in trios on the wall of a cool, minimalist apartment.

Very contemporary, good abstract and fab presentation. I'm not just saying this, I love this image and I'm honoured you mentioned me in dispatches! Hang onto it. I may well buy one this Christmas (I'm serious).

Best wishes, Simon

Thanks, Ivana!

Simon - (For some reason I believed your name was Theo, for the last few days - only noticed today it wasn't...)
Thank you very much for your comment - a compliment like that from someone like you means a lot to me.

Oh, thanks, Pete, for the HC! You probably won't even see this question, but I'm curious, though - since HC sort of means "didn't quite make it" - I'd really like to know what would have improved it? Just wondering...

This is fab Conrad! I'm pleased for you that you got a well deserved HC. Love the image's abstract nature with the lines, colours and shapes. Well done!

Very interesting artistic vision, a bit shocking presentation but it's all in the same style so it works well

Thanks, James. Yes, its a bit of a shock to the eye, isn't it. That's why I decided to try a new version today. Thanks for your comment!
