Wow, you have provided us with many alternative perspectives of an architectural marvel which is so often photographed!

I would like to single out #4, #12, #13 and #21. These are all takes "against the grain" of what you usually see as photographic depictions of this scenery. They are all four very well composed and definitely show that you have made contact with the object and have come to "understand" it.

BTW: Calatrava in person gave the tour???

TFS!

Just for remark.

It's me, who will never forget possibility to talk with local people, if visiting places new for me.

Local people are very proud, having such a great architect and his work in Valencia. It is one of the most beloved places for visiting, surely at weekend.

The historical coastal area and buildings next to port are novadays mostly blocked with contemporary commercial port - high brick wall aroung the running port and its development area reserved. There is a big conflict in-between town and port - coastal area is not opened to the see. I walked through the area and along the brick wall up to yacht harbour located at the south side of commercial port (up to the end of this brick wall). The situation for this region is frustrating.

These marveless buidings, area in whole with basins and road bridges designed by Santiago Calatraca are to compensate this conflicty situation and if feels very good. Valencia has still lot to do for dignifying the area in-between town and port, but the fist step has been awesome.

Thank you!

Location of all buildings and whole area was at my moment very well lighted and from right for shooting side.

Area proportions 3:1 (length : wide) and area dimentions provided great possibilities for using 28mm...50mm full frame focal length. Area's ground level as the park and one enough high level at the longer side of the area (streets level and around Umbracle pedestrian area) greated momenlty understanding, how to walk around the buildings, what views can be seen and what can be superbly recoded. In this situation, I think, most of shooters will select lot of perspective shooting. It responds to the architect's vision of whole ansamble, which has surely been up to very detail controlled on the smaller mock-up before blue-prints and consturction. Of-course, municipality as client will firstly select area can be developed, but I think there is architect's vision, which has helped to make the final decision. And all of this maked me feel, that I am walking "with" Santiago Calatrava
