Photographer's Note

I couldn't post this one if I was much concerned about originality, as not only this building, but also this POV, is largely represented here. The originality of the architecture compensates for the lack of originality of the photo. All that is beautiful to the eye is prone to be photographed and that is specially true for architecture, but Calatrava's work seem to have been designed to challenge the photographers to experiment all possible angles and it's no surprise to me how some of our fellows here have extensive galleries with his works.

This photo is a stitch of two vertical shots. I could hardly cover the whole building and the part of the pool below using the shortest focal distance I had (10mm, equivalent to 20mm in a full-frame), so I went for a stitch.

You'll find some informative notes about the building in these posts of guitianmiranda and luighi.

WS's: Lateral and lower views of the same building (1, 2).
