photoblog image Walkway perspective

Walkway perspective

This is the elevated walkway at the Excel exhibition center in East London. I was in the area having lunch at a dim sum restaurant nearby (before you ask, the food was pretty tasty!).

The shot was taken using my Sony Ericsson K800i camera phone - it's always in my pocket anyway. I chose this angle to illustrate the repeating pattern of the architecture. A bluish tint has been added during post-processing. Since this is modern architecture, I found it rather odd to use the usual sepia tone and went for this colder tint instead. What do you think?

What do I think? What do I think? I think this is bloody marvellous, that's what I think.

Taking everything into account, you've done a brilliant job. For a humble camera phone it's amazingly sharp throughout, surprisingly so as it's also f/2.8. The composition is superb too, no mean feat because you can't hold a phone in the same way as you can a camera, nor see the screen very clearly. Obviously the highlights in the background are blown out because such an unsophisticated camera can't have a very high dynamic range, but it's caught plenty of detail in the subject matter.

Very impressive all round. I'm quite partial to vanishing point shots too. Now then, do I swap my EOS 5D for a Sony camera phone. Hmm, tough decision!

The blueish tinge looks fantastic on this shot Duane. And great symmetry too.

Whenever I think of modern architecture... white, blue and a few pastel colours always come to my mind. Dunno why.
