    That rotation could work... but not with that huge block of black.

    Yes, I know. the idea was to hang it up like that. the black background would be the wall then.

    I say that if you were to crop it square and hang it like that...it could very well work wonderfully.

    hmm, I cannot see a square crop here ... what you see is not a crop but just a rotation.

    so i cannot add anything outside the area you can see now.

    a non-rotated coloured negative version of this one can be found in the general gallery...

    My best friend's mother commissioned some dude to shoot portraits of my friend and his brother and sister. One of them is a square crop at a 45 degree (diamond) angle. It hangs in their house. I make fun of it every time I go over.

    What I mean to say, is that I'm not sure that the rotation adds a whole lot.

    Thanks Max.

    Hmm, as you can see in my original post, I was skeptical about the whole rotation thing myself.

    So thanks for helping me to see things clearer. I shot this image with the camera rotated by 30something degrees, and my original plan was
    not to put it up rotated. But when I looked at the finished image, I felt the urge to straighten the horizon for some reason, but I guess this was just the hormones :p

    lol. Well I'm jealous that you were even in Barcelona. I haven't been in years. It's one of my favorite cities. The architecture and the food are killer. The only thing I hate is f-ing catalan. Nobody will freaking talk to you in spanish. I have friends from Galicia who speak english when they go to Barcelona because nobody will talk to them!

    Well, there is even a webpage, in Catalan, where some of my images are used ;) http://www.gronze.com/senderisme/west-highland-way.htm
    ... it is confusing, I admit ;)

    To be honest, I am not a great friend of Gaudi, he was certainly creative in combining elements from different styles and adding some of his personal note, but the result is not pleasing for my eyes in most cases. I respect him, but I'm not a fan ;)

    Barcelona is very crowded by tourists, unfortunately. In snapshots and bloopers there is one image referring to that problem :p
