spitze .... guter bildaufbau !

Matthew Walters on July 12, 2007

Danke. Der ursprüngliche Farbe Entwurf ging hinaus, helles Weiß zu sein ganz darüber, aber der Inhaber wünschte Farbe. Eine gute Entscheidung!

war das eine auftragsarbeit ?

Matthew Walters on July 12, 2007

Traurig, aber Google übersetzen hat mich lassen doen und ich verstehe nicht. Er übersetzte deine Anmerkung, wie „war eine Auftrag Arbeit?“

commissioned work ?

Matthew Walters on July 13, 2007

Thanks Rene, no it was just a holiday snap. 1 euro per view would have been nice though :)

Great composition and I adore the shapes and patterns in this one Matthew. You did real well to spot this opportunity. Nice one :)

Did you consider entering the Digital Photographer of the Year 2007 competition? You might yet get the equivalent of a few cents per view!

The interior decorator originally presented the hotel atrium to the Crown Prince of Dubai with a totally white interior. He was unsatisfied. So she came up with the nice colors that your photo wonderfully shows.

Whoa looks like the future and dream place

Matthew Walters on August 14, 2007

Hi scenicplaces, you are right. I think it was a wise decision, plain white would have been very 'clinical'.

Thanks, andas1.

Great symetric composition, Matthew!

Great shot! Disneyland in UAE?

Matthew Walters on August 16, 2007

Hi Marny. I speak one language (quite shameful really) and use Google Language Tools to do the rest. The photos are all mine, though.

Matthew Walters on August 16, 2007

Hi polytropos. It's hard to believe it's a hotel atrium isn't it? Fortunately, the one wall is fully glazed, with a white sheet suspended inside - a giant diffuser. This helps keep it all evenly lit.

Hope my viewing helped! Love it! I've always wanted to see this hotel, and your photo makes me feel as if I have!
