Under Your Spell


Hamburg, Germany.
November 2011.


Inspired by Roman Bezjak's photographs of the brutalist architecture of the Soviet Union... with my own photographic style and, contrary to Bezjak's pictures, taken at night.


Blog post title taken from the song by Desire.

Have a great week.

Amazing yellow. I suppose it's the sodium lights!

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you!
It's not only the lights... I used the "sunlight" white balance and a custom picture style. There really is an awful lot of light pollution though.

Stunning picture! I like the yellow as well as the composition of the frame...

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you Siddhartha... I find the architecture quite fascinating... lately, I discovered the photography of Roman Bezjak, who published a book about the brutalist architecture of the Soviets. Click here to view the gallery: http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/fotostrecke-70849.html

Fabulous capture Dominic! I love he link you gave to Roman Bezjak's works! I have long despised huge concrete structures but his photos are excellent.

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you Mandy! I think I'd seen Bezjak's photographs in an exhibition a while ago, but forgot about them until recently.

So um, your pic is epic. The perspective is what gets me. And I clicked on the linkage to the other building. Yet again architecture that if I saw with my eyes in real life, I would most likely flip a switch.

STUNNING.

Thank you! Glad you like it.
And when you click on the link, there's a whole series of photographs of buildings, not just one.
