Downtime by takitus Downtime by takitus
A nice view from above. The natural light from above gives very nice tones over the central escalator area.

This was shot at the main branch of the public library in my area, very beautiful building.

A complimentary shot to my other - Uptime.

Beautiful shot! I really like the angle and the dynamic composition :heart: It almost looks like a shape of a grand piano from top view :)

Nice and clean.
Can't suggest anything to make it better, either.

The curves and straight line combination gives this a lot of motion. It felt like a brush waving out strokes.

This is a fantastic piece. Your play with gemoetry and perspective is becoming evident through seeing more and mroe of your work. This is a particularly good piece though, mainly because of the whiteness and clenaliness of the image. As a huge fan of minimalism, I can imagine this was very hard to get the area empty, as you clearly didn't use a long shutter, because of the escalators, so congrats for having the patience to get this excellent shot. The saturation, lighting and sharpness are all bang-on, making this a wonderful piece. This'll be going on my shoutboard

Oh, I love the lines in this. The contrast is suberb, I like how everything's so monochrome and technical, but at the same time depicts a false-organic curvy architecture. Pretty nice motive you've got there. I't compositionaly well done too, although I would try to pull a stunt with making the escalators move down on the diagonal or something (if that was even possible, I dunno, wasn't there).

Great work. :thumbsup:

I love the perspective on this one but I would have hated to have been you taking the shot, I'd be afraid of falling off the ledge :P I love the clean, clear colours in this one and the sharpness of detail, again you've given the picture a very modern feel. Funny how the escalators are all empty though. It's a really good quality shot, very professional-like something I'd see on the front of a company brochure or something. :P Great job.

this has all the class and appeal that the stormtroopers costumes had for me when i first saw starwars...all those years ago. sorry if your not a fan of those costumes but i'm being subjective here!

by the way that hint of blue plays so well against the mono-crome

My friend is frightened of escalators (i thinks i've spelled it wrong) and my sister if scared of heights. Let me link this pic to them...heehee.

I like the lighting streaming down from your angle and the large area it captures. ^_^ Nice one. :D
