There just went the other half-mug of coffee. A stunning viewpoint.

Very nice, Hanan! :w00t:

I like the interesting effects that you have achieved with your slightly oblique view. There are so many regular right angles in the subject of this image, but there is enough of an angle between your camera and the perpendicular that we see subtle curves and shifted angles everywhere. Combined with the very active refraction of the grid lines beneath the water, it makes for a scene that is deliciously at variance with what the mind's notion of regular geometry. There is also a variety of reflected light, filtered light and softly modulated colors in many of the surfaces.

You have coaxed a lot of rich visual experience from a very simple and unassuming subject ... well done!

now i'm glad i wasn't tall enough to take a perfectly perpendicular shot ;)


i love regular geometrical shapes , but somehow i always end up with a twisted version of what i intended to take .. there must be some Freudian explanation to all this :)

...and thank you :hug:

I find myself wondering about how much geometrical art and design is in your surroundings there in Lebanon. I associate Islam with geometrically patterned mosaics and bold, flowing calligraphy ... I would expect that such a tradition exists in your country.

I lived in Los Angeles for a time and that city seemed to have more mosaics than is typical for the USA. I think that I would enjoy taking photographs of that sort of thing these days.

nothing like that here , unless you go to some particular places ,mosques and traditional arabic monuments .

lebanon is not an islamic country you know , it has a mixture of different religions and never had an islamic "style" .
it has though it's own architectural and design style but very different from other arab countries. it has been for number of years under a french mandate and was a lot influenced by french culture ..

but those days , after a war that lasted from 75 till 91 , and after so many years of bad economical and social state , i wonder how much of the actual Lebanon is the true one . i mean , it is a pity to look at what it became ... they used to call it the "Oriental Switzerland" and it had class ..

maybe we should talk more about this in a note , after ;)

Yes, I am aware of most of what you have said ... but I am unfamiliar with the appearance of your country. I expected a mix of styles, but your photograph reminded me to ask about mosaics. =D

I would welcome some more information ... I am curious. :nod:

wow, Hanan. i don't know how you did this exactly, but this is great. the strict geometry, then the dancing lines in the water. marvelous!

i was standing above the pool , just before entering the water . a perpendicular shot !

:whisper: if i was a little bigger :( i could have managed to take a larger view ! ;)

that's what i was thinking, the perspective actually seemed quite high!

ah, no taller person has ever made this shot any better!
