[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For the Friday theme I have returned to Casa Batllo,[a house designed by Gaudi,] where there seem to be no straight lines anywhere!
This is part of the top of a door, making a strong statement with wood and glass.The beautiful colour and patterning of the wood stands out, you just want to touch its' almost velvety appearance.
In this house there are a lot of beautiful pieces where wood is the star!
Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean.

Great capture, you show the different grains within this piece, added in such subtle ways. We see so much work, so much hand crafted creativity gone into producing this. Who knows how many man hours it took to complete.

The wood is the star.

stv ;o))

These are wonderful pieces of art in this carved wooden structure, Jean!
Light and exposure are highlighting the colorful glass work with amazing sharpness and clarity.
The contrasts within the image are well done.
Good contribution to the theme!

Kind regards,

Hi Jean,
A beautifully sculptured wooden door with lovely stained glass in this distinct work of Gaudi. Of course, straight lines are very scarce in the Spanish Catalan architect's work.
A fine contribution to the theme.

This is another fine image of the work of Gaudi Jean and a fitting addition to this weeks theme. I like the composition, with the top of the door curving across the frame and the view of the patterned wall in the top left corner only. The colours of the glass are beautiful and the textures of the wood shown well. You asked me if I thought that taking a picture without flash produces a more natural image and I think it does, especially if there is available light from a window, which would seem to be the case in your shot here. You have shown us many interesting works of Gaudi lately, I am tempted to plan a trip to Barcelona in the future to see them for myself.


Wow! Indeed those are some intricate and very detailed artworks. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
