Photographer's Note

As I promised, here's my 3rd photograph of Casa MilÓ, designed by Barcelona's most famous artist Antoni GaudÝ. It was taken on the roof of the house. There's much to say about this picture. As you can see, the roof of Casa MilÓ is full of weird looking constructions: some are chimneys (lower right corner), others are some sort of towers. The biggest element on this photo is a 'tower' with a staircase inside. It's very special, and maybe that's why my composition is a bit special too :P

I still don't know why but, instead of stitching 2 or 3 photos together, I decided to take only one picture of it. Like you see, it wasn't easy to get every detail into the picture. I had not much space, so I had to frame very well and had to put the central element diagonally in the frame. That's why the framing is really tight (didn't crop anything neither).

Another important thing is the window in the tower. I thought it would add something to the shot if I waited for the right moment. So when I saw this girl entering the tower, I waited till she would walk down the stairs, and shot! :) I hope you like the result...

I also posted the original picture to compare... The most important changes include adjusting contrast and cloning a few things out :-)

Here's some additional information about Casa MilÓ (Source - Wikipedia):
Casa MilÓ, better known as La Pedrera (Catalan for 'The Quarry'), is a building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni GaudÝ and built in the years 1906ľ1910 (officially completed 1912). It is located at 92, Passeig de GrÓcia ('passeig' is Catalan for promenade or avenue) in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was built for the married couple Rosario Segimon and Pere MilÓ. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni GaudÝ".
