Alright. First of all, I find this piece amazingly original. Since my time here on DeviantArt, I've never seen anything close to this. It really does look like the mind of a great thinker. moving, dense, and looks like it can power a huge amount of ''Trains''. Altough most people will not like/trust him, because he looks like he can break at any moment.
The houses in the horizon give this work a bit more ''Humanism'' to put it that way. Overall, I find this a magnificent piece, and you can find the meaning of the picture quite well.

And my apologies if my Critique comes over a bit crummy. My English can abandon me from time-to-time. :U

It communicates the very, busy and crowded nature of modern life. It gets complicated. :D

DpressedSoul Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Depends on what you consider as "manipulation". I have only converted it to black and white. cropped it a bit and upped the contrast, that's all. The compression effect comes from the focal length of the lens. :)

If this is a true to life photo, then it is the most insane setup of electrical equipment I've ever seen! :faint: Either way, it's visually stunning. Love it.

It's definitely a "real" photo, just converted to black and white. :)

What you see are contact wires at the rather big main station in Cologne. I took this photo with a focal lenght equivalent of 600 mm, hence the optical effect.

Thank you very much! :D

Wer an Depressionen leidet, läuft nicht zwangsläufig den ganzen Tag mit betrübter Miene durch die Gegend. ;)

Das Bild ist auf dem Kölner Hauptbahnhof entstanden, Blickrichtung Norden. :)
