Welcome to DC 31

This weeks topic is a little different (once again)... And I shall call it

Architecture Photography



Description

Take a picture of any building and post it here. Accepted are photos of houses, bridges, towers, factories, famous landmarks (for example the Eiffel tower) and so on. The image can show the whole building or just details of it (door, windows, roof...).You have to take the picture yourself and it has to be taken especially for this contest (so none of your old holiday pics). Of course there's no way I can control that your photo is new, I will just have to trust you in that matter...

You are allowed to enhance your image with the following:

- Brightness / Contrast
- Hue / Saturation
- Vibrance
- Color Balance
- Black & White
- Shadows / Highlight
- Crop / Rotate / Resize
- Blur / Sharpen
- You may also add a frame or border to your image, as long as it doesn't hide a great deal of the picture.

Everything else is forbidden!!! So no special effects, animations, overlays etc...!
Please reduce your picture to a reasonable size for the preview!



This topic will be open for 1 week until Sunday 30 October.

You can just take some pics (you can use phone camera if you dont have another digital camera) relating to architecture & post them here in this thread so people can comment and tell you what they like ... towards the end of the week she will open the Entry Thread and you can post you chosen photo there wink.gif
if there's any specific questions - feel free to ask thumbsup.gif

not sure about the train - but if it includes some architectural elements of the track /station I guess thats okay
uploading to the gallery would be preferred yes since "Crop / Rotate / Resize" is allowed
the gallery allows for images up to 1920x1408px so you should be able to find some size that works for you wink.gif

Yes, very good!! clap.gif But be careful when taking pictures of windows, some people seem to have a problem if you take a picture of them when they are taking a shower... And it seems to be even more upsetting if it's posted online right after... sleep.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif




Eric
Thank you!! wub.gif
Asad_rider
@Mom I like the first one very much clap.gif clap.gif

You have to take the picture yourself, not just post one you found online!! Please read the first post of this thread and follow the rules.

Yes, sure, you can upload it to the gallery in any size you like!! I just add this so it's easier to watch the images... smile.gif If you want you can also post a link to your image in a bigger format.

I know it's very late now to make a new one, but to be fair to everybody I will have to insist on that... surrender.gif

I see so wonderful pics of Architecture here clap.gif

Here is my photo:




original photo of myself
another photo


Located in the heart of the vibrant city of Magdeburg since October 3rd, 2005, THE GREEN CITADEL OF MAGDEBURG is a place of peace to be enjoyed, a world of architectural novelty that is full of individuality and creativity, in harmony with nature.

At one of the worldwide latest and greatest masterpieces of architecture by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, golden globes shine atop its towers, "tree tenants" look out of "dancing windows", scents waft from the wildflower meadows on the roofs, and "feet’s melodies" carry people through the courtyards.

Hundertwasser’s "…greatest and most beautiful building…" is a paradise for everyone, inviting you not only to live, work or shop here, but also to meet, celebrate and stay the night.

Ah, finally, some entries!! clap.gif clap.gif clap.gif



Vinoth
Very good, I'm glad it worked out now! I would suggest you crop and rotate your image just a little bit. Something like that:




Soumya
Very nice! Of course this is valid as an entry! The only important thing is that you made the picture this week and for this competition...



ek4design
Great pic! And I love it, that you gave some information about it too!



Symbiantweets
That would be a great entry if it were your picture! Sadly it can be found HERE. DC worked very well for a very long time without any cheaters, please don't destroy our trust!! dry.gif And by the way, this is a very easy topic, how can you be too lazy to make a picture?!? It's really not much to ask for!



Tinca
What an awesome building!! Love the architecture of Hundertwasser!



Anulubi
Love it!! Did you play with the colors or is it originally that pink?
