[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A pleasantly warm summer morning at the pier of Lausanne (Ouchy district). It was all empty at that time, and it was nice to observe that the morning sunshine is reflected by this monument. In the background, you can see Lac Léman (Lake Geneve) and the French land.

Hi Kristof

An unusually shaped sculpture, with good sharpness, colour, framing & contrast. The circular shaped stand, contrasts strikingly, against the star shape. Tfs!

The first thought that came to my mind, when I saw this image...

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Have a great Sunday Kristof,

I like this modern sculpture/artwork. I think it was inspired by the computer graphics, great shot

Hi Kristof
a nice and interesting work of art.
well captured.
very clear and shining details with clean bg.
thanks for sharing (we had a rainy day on our visit to Lausanne and didn't see much)

Hello Kristof,
The predominant colors, blue and silver (alright silver like) are most appealing to me. A modern looking, geometric, and quite intricate monument that begs for closer scrutiny. Well done. Best regards...

Hi Kristof,

Nice capture of this interesting piece of art. The light does some interesting things with the curves of the metal structure. Well seen perspective for your composition.


Hello, Kristof -
I see you were hunting in my old playground, Lausanne. I spent many a day at this lakefront park in Ouchy during my time in that beautiful city. You caught this sculpture at a great moment because the sun has created such fantastic highlights on the curved metal. Very sharp details of the sculpture; I also like that you centered it (I think the "rule of 3rds" was made to be broken as often as observed). Well done.

great Kristof
its look like a snowfall :))
very nice ceompo

Ciao Kristof

A different dynamic angle as compared
with the traditional tourist shots!
Excellent exposure and great colours,
the details are as impressive as ever...
Beautiful lines in the composition!

Really great !!!!!
Very good pov and composition. The light is well managed.
A lovely result. Very good work Kristof

My compliments

That's great shot!
When the air is clear from that place you can see the French side, Alps and all places around the Lac Léman.

Awesome artwork you've captured here Kristof, good detail, could be a little more saturated to bring out the colours

Ciao Kristof, splendid light on a beautiful sculpture, fantastic details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Salut Kristof

Tu as fait une belle representation de cette sculpture en acier inoxydable connue de tous les Lausannois est qui est l'oeuvre d'Ángel Duarte, artiste de renommée internationale. Elle a été offerte par le Rotary International à la Ville de Lausanne à l'occasion de son congrès mondial. « Ouverture au monde » représente la figure de 6 demi-hyperboloïdes de révolution, formés à l'aide de 36 panneaux en forme de losange.

Je te met en WS une version differente.
Bonne salutation

Hello Kristof,

Beautiful monunment.
Excellent shot with beautiful sky!
Congratulations and TFS

Helo Kristof
Excellent picture of this "star"
