[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 3rd photo of my recent series named «cahiers de Prague» is the «Prague descending chair» (2003) created by the contemporary artist Magdalena Jetelova, and is looked down from the rooftop of the Kampa Museum for Central European Modern Art - a converted mill on Kampa Island, on the banks of the Vlatava river.

The Kampa Museum showcases a private collection of modern and contemporary painting, sculpture and installations and has inventive glass balconies from where you can gaze over the water to the city centre..

"Any restriction is unacceptable for me."
(Magdalena Jetelová interviewed by Ulrike Ritter)

It is very well captured here with this "toy" who stand up in Vltava. A singular perspective of Prague and an excellent one for me.( the note is great informative and formative). A great post.

Hi dear Jose

The colors and the powerful mood and effect are very suggestive
And moving here, beautiful lighting as well adding a lot to the entire
Scene, plus the perspective and the vertical frame... looks
Like 2 windows, one to the water and the other to the sky …
Very creative work as always…

All the best and regards

Hi Jose,
excellent intense and ich shot. I really like the dramatic sky.
The glows of the building is very special at the background.

Hi Jose, A most unusual piece of art, exposed well in your composition. Remarkable and huge chair beside the river in Prague, a place of history and modernity at the same time. Good POV showing the historic buildings on the other bank. The colours are appealing. TFS. Murray.

Olá Jose

Interessante ponto de vista.
Gosto da opção de cores e a
luminosidade é muito bonita.

Olá Jose,
Cores magníficas - usastes alguma técnica como HDR para conseguir essas cores?
Grande abraço
