    Default Rooftop at La Pedrera, Barcelona

    La Pedrera is considered to be one of the best creations by Antoni Gaudi. I decided to create a tight comp here. 40D. 100 f/2 at f/11. iso 320.

    Good use of the repeating patterns.

    I tried a local contrast enhancement and liked the results (more here on the method if you do know it http://www.birdphotographers.net/for...ad.php?t=20434).

    Thx Robert. I will try that. I came back from that trip with so many shots(architecture and family) that I did not really process them as carefully as I usually do my bird shots. One of these days, when I get the time, I need to sit with some of the better ones and reprocess the RAW files.

    Hey Kaustubh,
    I think you have some excellent light here that really shows off the details in the stone. Amazing building and story (Thanks for the link!). I think you chose the right path here.....instead of capturing the entire building....which IMO would be difficult......focusing on some of the structure makes a nice architectual abstract. I did debate the 2 cut tips on the left......whether I want it included.....I do think it may have improved it somewhat but I also think you can go to a pano also. Just some thoughts for you when you try to reprocess.

    Thx Roman for the feedback. I made a lot of images on that rooftop :-) One can spend a whole day there I think...but I had only an hr. I had 17-40f4L, 50f1.8 and 100f2. But my favorite is this tight one. Liked the compression effect of 100mm focal length.

    Hi Kaustubh, Just spent a week in Chicago shooting architecture and had to reprogram my brain since I don't usually shoot skyscrapers. I found it challenging.
    Gaudi is all over Barcelona and you did a nice job making a composition out of a smaller part of a whole. The image also has warm light, good detail and flowing in a diagonal.
    I generally would have tried not to clip the the tips of the 2 rear formations. This also would of added a bit more blue sky which would not have been overdone...
