_____Random Info
   Taken at the Wageningen University located in the Netherlands this picture shows the Atlas building.

"Atlas is one of the most characteristic buildings of Wageningen Campus. This robust building was named after the muscle-man of Greek mythology. The open mesh structure on the outside of the building is very distinguishing, and actually supports the entire building. Atlas is used by Alterra and the Environmental Sciences Group (ESG)." www.wageningencampus.wur.nl/UK…

I was very happy with the conditions of the shooting. The wind was strong but not too strong leading to fast traveling and well structured clouds but a still tripod. Only a few drops of rain every few minutes so I didn't even have clean my filters all too often. Pretty much the best I could hope for trying some architecture shots at the campus. Although the Sigmas barrel distortion is quite severe it worked out ok I guess. I tried to correct some of the strongest distortions with the warp tool so the outcome looks quite satisfying in my opinion - the low visual noise of the K5 added to the image as well because I didn't have to use any noise reduction what so ever which I sometimes did with the longer exposures with my old K20D. Looking forward to editing maybe another shot from the campus or returning for some night shootings in the coming months.

I cycle by this building at least 4 times a week, and honestly, I find it to be an eye-soar, im a proud Wageninger, but I'd say the Forum and the Lumen buildings are more impressive.

I tried to capture the Forum but the surrounding didn't offer much of a good perspective. I always had a light post in the image, or something on the inside which could be seen through the window so none of the shots really turned out to my liking. And sadly the time didn't suffice to shot Lumen, which I didn't find very impressive simply to the lack of height I assume though which is why I started with the Forum and then went on to the Atlas. Still waiting for the Orion to complete, maybe it'll be worth shooting. :D

Love the structure of this, also the sharp clarity in contrast to the rushing clouds. Well done.

Stunning! Love the composition and perspective. The long exposure treatment of the clouds just add the finishing touches!

NicolasAlexanderOtto Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2012
Thanks. I was taking quite some different compositions of this building although most were somewhat off in terms of getting straight lines. It's really difficult to get the right angle when you use a really low angle to begin with. I wasn't really able to look through the viewfinde without laying down on the wet grass and getting all my clothes dirty. :D

I wasn't sure what it made me feel yesterday but now I do...its definatly like the angle of the building, and the diffrence between the space of the sky and the building..it pervoks the feeling tht its gona fall on me if I stand underneath it and tht "how can u even work in there" it!

Das sieht ja mal mega genial aus! Ich kan mich ~ItsyBitsyshutterbug nur anschließen: Die Schärfe ist ausserordentlich gut und auch die Farbe verleiht dem ganzen einen schön metallischen Look. Zum Schluss noch der hohe Kontrast welcher die Aufnahme dann perfekt abrundet!
