To anyone who has photographed the atrium, this is a very familiar--too familiar--shot. The brise soleil was extended, creating more light in the interior. It can be seen faintly beyond the glass of the ceiling. Perhaps there is too much going on--or else I am just getting jaded. I actually like the shot below better, just because the alignment is different.
Normally, I try very hard to make the shot as symmetrical as possible. Positioning the camera off-center by even an inch or two can make it impossible to completely balance the shot in post processing. Here are a couple of shots of the spinal column of the atrium.
I think I nailed the symmetry in these shots.
Here is another shot intentionally off-center.
I like this shot because of its asymmetrical composition. Again, maybe I'm just getting a little jaded.
Finally, here are a couple of shots of some of the smaller details of the Calatrava.
As in the prior photo, I took this shot "off-center," not looking directly down the row of triangular supports.
And here is a simple shot of a light well at the top of the interior wall leading from the atrium toward the museum's main exhibit hall.
Taken with my Nikon D7000 with Nikkor 24-120 mm f/4 lens.
