"Den Bla Planet" is Denmark's National Aquarium, located in Copenhagen (near Kastrup Airport). It's a piece of outstanding architecture - and even more impressive when viewed from above.

Here are some images.

C&C always welcome! Thanks for viewing!

Harald,
These are stunning images of a wonderful piece of architecture. Beautifully composed and rendered in black and white. Pretty well impossible to pick favourites, but #2, 3 and 6 really stand out for me.
Thanks for sharing.

What a place and what a series! I think your images did it justice, especially the B&W's are all spot on and very well composed. For me 5 and 6 are the favourites, but I'm usually very much attracted to night shots.

Wonderfully done all. #2 - impeccably done, both the composition, the long exposure choice and the processing. This series brings to mind the work of Joel Tjintjelaar

I think this whole setting is build only for you Harald.
This is kind of setting and geometry where you excel. Your eye can see details and your vision is well trained to "extract" images out of bigger picture; very well done.
Also, your processing really is just a cherry on the top.
There is harmony and balance in these images and therefore there is aesthetics.
small suggestion: I would go a bit brighter on #2 and #5

Nope - not as impressive as this set - seriously, you are being too modest. Thanks for the link - quite the structure.

Love #4 all perfect
You have a category of your photography that can best be described consistently
as "harmony and serenity" and is unmatched.

All the Best___________Josef 👏

+1! Looking at the link you sent I can't imagine that there are any better shots to be found there.

Exactly what I was going to say. These are easily more impressive that that view.
