The tower of the coal mine "Consolidation" in Gelsenkirchen Germany. the wicked effect in the sky was achieved by an infrared filter wich increased the contrast of the blue/white in the sky and increased the exposure time
Very nice photo. I am not the biggest fan of the blurring in the sky. I like the idea and what the effect would bring, but i think right now its blurred just too little and looks akward. But that is my only little critique.
I took this photo with an infrared filter to enhance the contrast and to get this blurred sky. Since infrared photos are naturally red and white or if correctly balanced blueish black and white. I reduced the saturation. You can also get this result with a pol-filter and an 1000 Greyfilter but this is just unnecessary much glass in front of the lense and the colors would have been so boring that black and white would have been the best choice anyway since the only colorful object would have been the sky it also would have distracted from the building.
Wow this is amazing, I love the color of this piece it being in gray scale and having amazing contrasts, I love the sky how it has that beautiful blurred effect, What an interesting piece, I love the architecture !!! Beautiful job!
