Another view of the pool at the spa I posted a few days ago. I very much like the colors and lighting.

Hand-held, shot in RAW, converted to JPEG, curves, unsharp mask and a bit of saturation.

Nice angle from which to take the shot, gives us idea of the scale and space in and around the pool. Certainly exudes a peaceful atmosphere, just not too sure about the floating brains! :-)

I like the POV here, which gives certain depth to the picture, Werner!

The colors of the swimming pool are very well shown, the interior architecture does contribute to the quality of the shot, and of course the way you chose the POV, is appreciable. Great job!

Best regards,

Fine, Werner, very fina capture. Imposing POV, marvelous lights and a great and extense profondity. I would say asseptic.
Very good work here.

This is a very interesting architectural shot. Fine exposure, contrast and color balance...great visual impact. I personnally did a lot of architectural shot in the past, using 4x5 camera, that able me to correct the vertical plan, which in 35 mm ain't really possible. But I believe that tilting this frame a little more CCW, works better. I base that jugement looking at the columns, then I try to imagine a vertical line right at the center of the picture. That imaginary line should be straight. It's hard to explain, that is why I made a workshop of your image. Check it out and let me know what you think of it. It a minor change, and I think your work is superb here. Cheers

Hi Werner...Beautiful shot. great tones and colors. perfect focus and sharpness...


i am not critic, but pic is great

Werner, Cool Pool Photos!

Hi Werner,

A great PoV here with the lane markings giving a good idea of the depth of the image. The whole image gives the look of a peaceful place through the colours you have kept in the shot. I particularly like the big 'foam ??' lane diveders in the pool as your foreground interest.

Nice Work,
