Challenge: Framing II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S3 IS
Location: Malmö, Sweden
Date: Jun 13, 2006
Aperture: f/8
ISO: Auto (possibly 80)
Shutter: 1/200
Galleries: Architecture
Date Uploaded: Jun 13, 2006

This is the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden. The area in the foreground was part of an exhibition in 2001 called "live vision" and is now a real (and very cool) neighborhood beside the water.

The scene was so bright with colors that I couldn't resist it this way, even though it also looked kind of cool with the sky desaturated completely. It was a tough decision! Hope you think this one is okay.

Post processing was all normal adjustment layers: curves,color balance, selective color, levels. Shadow-highlight on the image layer, flatten, smart sharpen,border, and save for web.

What a striking photo Amy! That tower is larger than life amidst the row of houses! And I love those vivid colors!

Where was this, where was this? I've seen something about its construction....
Ah, Malmö! You can live in it right and wasn't it build because Malmö is rapidly growing because of the Öresund bridge?

Great piece of architecture. Nice photo, unfortunate that the rules don't allow you to clone out the crane in the background.

Nice composition & contrast. Shame about the clouds and that crane though (if i'm being picky!)

I like the photo a lot. Nice saturated contrasting colors make it a dynamic photo. Interesting subject. interesting context with the houses in front. I suppose the sky frames the building but it's a pretty loose sort of framing.

A brilliant piece of framing photography. Too bad basic rules do not allow you to clone out the crane and wire distractions. One fantastic image... Good technicals, lighting and perspective. Hope it is not faulted for failing to have framing on two or more sides.

Awesome catch, but framing...?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 12:50:46 PM
although i really like the composition, the image seems overly sharpened to me and i am hard pressed to see how this meets the challenge.

not really seeing the framing aspect, but a cool shot nonetheless. linear versus curved.

Great shot. Amazing building

I love this picture for all its contrasts. But I don't get how it meets the framing challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 03:10:59 PM
Nice colors, perhaps too saturated, and good composition. I can't see the framed object anywhere, but maybe I have a lack of perception. Anyway it is a greeat shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is such a cool shot. Very interesting. I don't feel it meets the challenge so I'm only voting it a 7...would have been an 8 or a 9.

Seems like turning torso fits many challenges? Nice building, but ... has the challenge been met? Maybe a shot from within TT, where window frame was the basis of a shot of the city of Malmö ...


Details: Capture an image where the foreground subject frames the rest of the image.


Other than that, I think turning torso is beautiful, and it is indeed a really nice shot you have made here ...

I DON'T SEE A FRAME IN THE FOREGROUND.4

is this building built this way? I have seen another couple images recently of a building that looks remarkably similar to this one with the same twist.nice image, definite impact.-7-

Great image here.....I like it a lot, and hopefully in the top twenty.....

Really nice picture...But it doesn't represent the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favorites in here by far, however I do not see the framing involved.

Gorgious architectural beauty! Nice framing there!

Very cool photo, but...

nice one of turning torso, I like the contrasts between foreground and background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 10:26:38 AM
Great colour and form. A frame does suggest 3 if not 4 sides.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 05:49:55 AM
while it's a great shot, I can't see a frame in the foreground framing what's in the background...or is it just me?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 02:32:24 AM
Perhaps a little oversharpened for my taste, I'd not be happy if I lived in one of those houses and they built that tower near me.... what is it ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice photo, but where's the framing?
