In the gallery

It seems that there have been quite a number of street scenes posted lately in this area. I've really been enjoying them. However, I am going to take you inside with this post.

Took part of the day yesterday and visited the National Art Gallery in Ottawa. I don't kinow how many times I have been in the building, and yet, there always seems to be another angle to shoot. Following is a selection from the visit. I didn't feel like carrying the D800 and decided to exercise the D300 (with 16-85mm lens) since it hadn't seen the light of day for a little while.

Starting with a stroll through the long glass enclosed ramp that leads to the displays:

"The Vanishing Point"
f/4.5, 1/800, 16mm, ISO 800



A look back at the entrance lobby, check in counter:

"Reception"
[f/4.2, 1/400, 28mm, ISO 800]


Continuing up the ramp.

"Red"
[f/8, 1/20, 45mm, ISO 800]


And finally one showing the splendour of light, symmetry and geometry that the architect [Moshe Safdie] put into this magnificent building:

"Lights minus one"
[f/8, 1/50, 16mm, ISO 1600]


Thanks for looking. C & C always appreciated.

Re: In the gallery

Nice series Mario. I only see one possible distortion correction you might make in the second. There seems to be some slight pincushion effect there, unless the structure is actually bowed that way.

Re: In the gallery

What an interesting building Mario. When was it built? I particularly like the final shot; that strong diagonal from the bottom left leading your eyes to the blue centre of the (dome?), and the intersecting layers of colour.

Thanks for pointing that out. Sometimes I get too focused on one aspect or another and miss something like this. It is an awesome building if you ever get a chance to visit Ottawa.

Thanks. I periodically 'lurk' to see what's happening, and miss the constant interaction. But getting back on every now and then is always a goal.

Thanks Melanie. That shot is taken on a tilt. The leading diagonal from the bottom left is the ceiling of the hallway that leads into the small atrium whose ceiling is on the top right.
The gallery opened in 1988. Some info :http://www.gallery.ca/en/about/building.php

Thanks everyone.

Re: In the gallery

Thanks for the link Mario. I like the sound of the landscaping too. Hmmm, the site could do with some photos for that page...
