[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear All,

I took this capture from the intracity bus terminal from German city of Halle (Saale). I like its architecture as it provides a certain depth when chose to photograph from a particular POV.

It was a handheld shot as there was raining a bit and it was difficult to stay there for for longer :-P

What is your opinion.

Hope you enjoy the shot.

Hi Paras,
A nice geometrical composition with these neon lights!
A wonderful nocturnal shot with a lovely cast on the wet ground of different artificial lighting.
As a hand held shot is perfect and the composition is pleasant. I can depict sharpness from the No-entry sign!
Very neat work.

Hello Paras :)

This very curious architecture and very pretty shot in evening light.
Bright frames look on dark background originally.
Composition in pretty colours and sharpness...very pretty work!

With best wishes.

Hallo lieber Paras,
ich liebe Nachtaufnahmen, und das Resultat deines Experiments bei Nacht und Regen ist dir auf jeden Fall gelungen.Tolles Licht, feine Reflexionen , und die noch erkennbaren Menschen im Hintergrund am Bus beleben die Szene.Mir gefällt es.
Lieben Gruß Rose

Hi Paras,
The architecture certainly stands out here, and you have composed the image well. Im like how the lighting brightens the unusual shapes of the building. Looks good here at night with the lights shining and in the damp wet too.
Well done

Hi Paras.
A beautiful nocturnal shot with beautiful framing and the exposure is beauitful too,good control on cam to get a steady shot at slower shutter.
Best Wishes

dear Paras,
white curved lines are fantastic like the edges of space-station,
cool feeling of night dark terminal is well captured,
right partial yellow lights and left partial yellow reflection are vivid in this bluish space,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Excellent modern art composition.The neons create a well balanced graphism in this night setting.Friendly regards Otto.

Hi Paras,

You have chosen a good POV for this. The main structure leads nicely to the repeating passenger terminals (I guess that is what they are). The lighting creates an interesting pattern.


Ciao Paras,

Without a doubt, is a modern architecture and the shot
night, gives us something like that futuristic.
Good colors & details!

Hi Paras,
Nice nocturne picture well taken here with and excellent effect of light, good sharpness at f 2.8 and contrast,
beautiful modern place..
Michel have a nice weekend..

Hello Paras,

This is an unusual subject, for you, but one that really stands out. I like the repeating, lit shapes and the muted lighting on the floor. The large oval, focal to the shot, is strongly positioned.
It is a fine shot for a night one, especially one that is hand held!

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)
