Düsseldorf has some awesome architecture, much of which (including this building) has been quite beautifully photographed by 21.gif Eyewave. This is a government building as shot through the glass in the observation section of the Düsseldorf Rhine (or Media) Tower. Definitely worth the trip up the tower if you're in the area.

I like the geometry of it. Would be a nice way to show kids that math(s) has more to it than tedious homework. :-)

Topaz'd (probably portrait drama setting) then Nik Silver Efex'd.

While not my first choice for this month's Free Study, I do think this may fare better than the ones I might have otherwise submitted. Here's hoping it approaches my average!

I shot this on the 3rd of May - had it pegged as my Free Study all month. Then realized there was the odd possibility it might be too busy for DPC. :-) Still my favorite shot of the month, though.

This image really lends itself to B&W. It reminds me of several gears all working in unison. Very nice.

Jeez, Deb - you are on a roll! I sure hope you are no longer associating with Team Suck - seems wholly inappropriate. ;-)

Too 'in focus' and no pigeons, what were you thinking Deb?

This looks like the workings insider an old watch from the thumbnail. This is just wonderful! Added to favs.

Wow, what a photo! I think you entered the better choice (for my vote anyway -- if I had voted on this).

You are really on a roll -- two great scores and placements this week. I am fascinated by all the photos you took from the tower.

I absolutely love your composition here. This photo is just fun to stare at for a while. B/W was an excellent choice. One of my favorites!

B&W contributes substantially to the feeling of depth and texture here. Well done!

That's pretty amazing. This looks a bit familiar, maybe I've seen a pic of it before. I really like it.

Cool shot!! nice textures, B&W tones. I would probably have cropped more on the right. 8

That's awesome. Looks like a pencil drawing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2009 02:06:47 PM
Still think it looks like the inner workings of a watch. Hoping it's going up!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

oh... is this a look out of the Rheintower over the paliament of Düsseldorf? - I took almost the same picture one year before.
Like this composition, the b + w is just right. Well done!
