1033 – The Golden Age

Sorry for the delay. Yesterday I had one of those rare meetings with my friend Christian. Actually I had forgotten the date, and when he met me at work, I was pretty surprised and embarrassed, because I was supposed to be the host.

Thankfully the shops were still open and I could go the the next supermarket to fetch some edibles and some wine. It left me damn short time for photographing though. In fact this image was taken while I walked back home. Note to self: Never go out without a camera, even if it’s only to the supermarket 🙂

The Song of the Day is “The Golden Age” from Beck’s 2002 album “Sea Change”. See the video on YouTube.

  1. Another great image. I love the strong lines of the basic composition and the dramatic post-processing.

  2. Thanks. Well, I used pretty heavy post-processing for two reasons: In the original the sky and the reflection were pretty much apart tonally, but I wanted the architecture to almost float in the sky. Thus I had to darken the sky and to push the reflections. The second reason is a direct consequence, because now there was visibly more noise in the reflection than in the sky. The painting effect nicely took care of that 🙂

  3. Yeah, yeah…you're not supposed to say it, but still: Wow! What colors… And the composition is simple enough so that the final picture is not overloaded. Just wonderful.
