From Wikipedia about the architect...

Frank Owen Gehry, CC (born Ephraim Owen Goldberg, February 28, 1929) is a Pritzker Prize-winning architect based in Los Angeles.

His buildings, including his private residence, have become tourist attractions. Many museums, companies, and cities seek Gehry's services as a badge of distinction, beyond the product he delivers.

His best-known works include the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, Experience Music Project in Seattle, Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, Dancing House in Prague, Czech Republic and the MARTa Museum in Herford, Germany. However, it was his private residence in Santa Monica, California, which jump-started his career, lifting it from the status of "paper architecture," a phenomenon that many famous architects have experienced in their formative decades through experimentation almost exclusively on paper before receiving their first major commission in later years.

Hi Ramon,
Excellent work with this HDR, a very nice building for such photography. Looks like a painting, quite an illusive shot. Great work.


Hi Ramon,
A nice capture of this modern structure adorned with fabulous lighting.
It contains all types of shapes and shades and thus creating a graphical construction.
A pleasing composition against a light blue sky which contrast well with the concrete color.
Well presented in a tight black frame.
Best regards,

Francis Xavier

Ciao Ramon,

I like the clearings and very defined lines!
The point of view works well and gives a good impression
and beautiful effect, actually, is the first time that I see
this technique used in an architecture...
Well framed with good details!



Surprenant bâtiment que le traitement HDR rend encore plus original (avec juste une petite réserve pour le ciel que je trouve un peu...curieux)

Hello Ramon
Fantastic building very well captured and presented. Excellent sharpness, great light and an amazing capture of the walls movement. Really good. TFS and congrats for more one great work.

Boa tarde Ramon
Architecture is a wonderful world. I have been in Prague last week and I have saw the dancing house. Gehry is a very interesting mind "working".
Thanks for this really interesting photo who gives a great Idea of the building. Very well worked and a very good note.
Um abraço
