Photo - Behind the Hills by tigaer Photo - Behind the Hills by tigaer
R.E.M. gave a concert in munich this weekend and since i'm a big fan of them i haven't missed it. the event can only be described with the word "fantastic". they rocked the town pretty nice. the next day i took the chance to visit the olympia park which was right beside my hotel. just a few steps and you have a paradise of possible things to capture with a camera ;) (Wink) .

i've captured about 400mb of pics and a lot worked out pretty good so you can expect to see some more in the near future. =) (Smile) the weather wasn't good but i tried to make the best out of it. all shots taken with a minolta dimage 7i.

well, happy viewing... =) (Smile)

Beauiful! I really like the soft calm, and soothing feel this photograph has.. Probably the cloudy sky and the bottom white-to-photo fade in... and the green hill! Lovely!

this is a very well layed out photo. i reeeeeally like it. those bushes add a bit of needed contrast, but mess up the flow a little, but its still an awesome photo. im very picky, but i this one is def a :+fav:.

I like the composition of this photo because of the juxtaposition of the imagery captured. You have the sweeping curves of the natural formation in the hills contrasted with the sweeping curves of the manmade "hill" which is the theatre.

Quite the nice pic...R.E.M. I believe was here in Seattle for Bumbershoot...I did not get to see them...but I got to see some good blues stuff...had to go home too soon to see Bonnie Raitt...but I had a good get the big names...but it was the street musicians that really caught my fancy...20ish girls playing classical violins on the street outside...I sat for an hour...I had the good weather.,..75 and calm though the wind kicked up in the eve. Bumbershoot is a big thing here in Seattle..mostly music and art...wonderful experience:heart:

jimz Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2003

i'm back with a :+fav: because i love it that much.

GREAT LINES! the curve of the hill, coupled with the curve of the amptheater really give this shot an abstract feel. very creative.

wow, that looks stylish... You´re really talented.
I like ur photos.
adrielle Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2003
Cool. Nice sloping hills against sloping architecture.

I saw REM at Glastonbury this year, here in the UK, that was a good set too, very much enjoyed it =D

quite unusual view of the Olympia Park in Munich (what a great city!!!).
I really like this perspective, it´s very charming and yeah... unusual.
I also like the quite large space above it (the sky... hehe)

madsick Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2003
i really love ur border ..this photo looks great aswell..the green and white really work great together..nice job
viperv6 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
...u have taken a good choice with that...!! :) (Smile)

but..maybe...a small dark frame....hmmmm....

antisocialant Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2003   Photographer
Wow, talk about sweeping lines! That slope of grass if beautiful and the opposite curve of the stadium really adds to it! The white sky melding with the border at the top and sides looks really good as well. I would imagine that it must have been hard to get such a shot without having any people in the frame...? Or was this an area not many people were in? Either way I really love this photo. Thanks for sharing it!
drewbrand Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2003
Really professionally done :) (Smile)
Love the conflicting curves and how you've added the white gradient at the bottem + the typo. It looks perfect.
Great shot too :D (Big Grin)

Later. /
johnwarren Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2003
To be honest, if the picture faded out more smoothly, without the sharpness of the straight line, this would look perfect..
The image is beautiful as is don't get me wrong =) (Smile) The contrasting colours are gorgeous :D (Big Grin)

Nice shot there. Its great how you can see things like that.
mikhail-mik Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003
the green and white! awesome colors tho there are only 2 they match real well. +fav
stotty Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003
This has been very well thought out - I love the way you managed to get the curvature of the land to balance with the building so well. Nice touch with the border too for extra balance.
st-barbie Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003   Photographer
I love the way this photo has amazing curves and interesting shapes ... it all is so smooth and lets the eye wonder very nicely....very yum
freezejeans Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003
:O (Eek) 400mb! Yikes...I love how this has a washed-out look, almost like watercolor. Glad you enjoyed the concert!
blacklaser Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003   Digital Artist
yeah, great shot! Nice colors and forms!
ciddy Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003
Well? What's over the hills? :P (Lick)
bren Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2003

bookdiva Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2003
I love this, Chris! Nice contrasts of vibrant tone against the whiteness..good lines and movement, the subtle clouds, well done, a beautiful piece, excellent!!
siebenzehn Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2003
erstmal, großartiges Photo natürlich :) (Smile)

aber es verwirrt mich doch etwas, ist das nun die Bühne wo REM gespielt haben?
Es sieht so aus als wäre dahinter praktisch kein Platz, was dann organisatorisch sehr ungünstig wäre, oder?
Ich denk da bestimmt wieder falsch, oder die Perspektive täuscht, bitte klär mich auf...

Second time no charge.

Nice shot. The opposing curves make for a nice layout.
