Not everything is gray



My first attempt on making a HDR picture. This is the back side of the Field's shopping mall in Copenhagen. I think the reflective metallic side of the building is quite cool :)

Tell me what you think! :)

*james3nine wrote a poem with inspiration from the photo:

   I walk along those empty walls
   Grey inside, avoiding calls
   Pushing away my thoughts today
   Ignoring blue for timeless grey

"Not Everything is Gray" is a clear attempt at taking the normal, usual surrounding that we live in and making it extraordinary. I'll try to sum up why that attempt is succesful.
First of all, vision. High scores here for the idea of making ordinary things more colorful.
Next up, originality. Can't really hope for a score above average - it is just a picture of a building + fancy sky. It's been done before in the past. I give this one +half star above average because good photos of this kind are no longer easily found these days.
Number 3, technique. Now let's keep this short.
It's perfect. The HDR is a full success. There are no visible artifacts. Post-HDR manipulation brings out beautiful colours on the sky. What else could we wish for? Well there is one thing.
I had to deduct half a star for the lack of object removal. The picture could be made more perfect by removing some objects here and there, and it'd be real easy to do. Note the little black hanging thing on the right edge of the image.
You'll have to excuse my love for perfection this time. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
Let's conclude - the impact.
The photo presents us with a somewhat blunt, urban structure used as a great contrast to the beautiful, blue sky. The consuming depth of that colour definately makes an impact on me. The fact of it being my favourite colour might have something to do with it tho. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" />
