Fotogroep Waalre 8-Jun-11

This composition is essentially about diagonal lines in modern architecture.

The Toren op Zuid (aka KPN Gebouw) by Renzo Piano has a façade with an overhang of 6°. The single external pole is for the required extra support. The foreground on the left is part of the nearby Erasmus Bridge.

Nearby there is a new high-rise residential building (“New Orleans”) and cranes for the next high-rise project (“De Stad Rotterdam”). Some viewers complained about the distracting cloud “coming out of” the building. The Dutch Photography Museum is incidentally housed somewhere below the green loft on the right.

    Hi Peter,

    I like the first picture on this page. It has nice abstract lines, areas and `textures´. Would make a good subject for decoration purposes at home. The square format fits that purpose very well. You might also try another crop with less white area on the left. That might work even better as a big print.

      I agree that the white triangle is a bit “in your face”. My photoclub said something similar. The photo may be included in a gallery expo next January – so I will investigate the cropping. Thanks.
