[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On Sunday I had a lovely day in Warsaw. The weather was amazing and I enjoyed sun, rest and taking pictures. This one has been taken on the roof of Warsaw University Library building. It is freely accessible not only to the academia, but also to the public. The view from that place is really great!

Hello Malgorzata,
An unusual composition full of atmosphere with the sun's rays reflected across the foreground roof windows and the lovely city of Warsaw in the background. The criss-cross of the airplane trails is a definite bonus with the sun nicely placed therein. Well exposed with good colours and sharpness.

Hello Malgorzata,

you are right the view from this place is amazing.I like the interesting figures in the sky in contrast to the roof of the building.Excellent photojob.Very well seen and done.TFS.

With regards from Luxembourg


Hi Malgorzata,
the graphic effect in the sky and the reflections are really nice, i like also how you managed the light.

Cześć Małgorzata,
dobre zdjęcie,fajny POV.
H na niebie i w szkle, no i całość, robi wrażenie.
Pozdrowienia Tomek

Hello Malgorzata,I agree with Stephen that the aircraft trails are a definite plus in this well composed and presented shot,the figures giving a good sense of scale.

Czesc Gosia!
Ciekawa kompozycja kadru.
Bardzo fajne swiatlo a smaku dodaje ciekawe niebo.
Podoba sie.

Witaj Gosiu,

Gratuluję kadru, jak z dobrego filmu science fiction. Podziwiam świetne plany i wysublimowaną kolorystykę.


Hello Malgorzata.
I really like this backlight
The sky with the sun and the lines that cross. The POV and the perspective of the glass roof, the diagonals it creates, and the shines of the sun.
Well done.

Hello Malgorzata
These roof glass made for an excellent FG and lead the eye nicely to the little bridge where people are standing on with behind a glimpse on a church!
The sun reflecting on the glass is also a nice detail to look at!
Well seen :)

hello Malgorzata
superb luminosity and wondeful graphic effect,this is impressive and excellently done!

Witaj Malgorzata,
İnteresting capture!
Great composition, light and colors...
Really good job!
Best regards. Uğur

Hi Malgorzata,
I've been to this rooftop garden before, and it really is a lovely place. I like all of the different elements in this shot--the bright sunlight creating the silhouettes in the background, the lines of the roof and trails in the sky, and the vertical format works well here.
Thanks for sharing!

Wow, very nice, graphic, I like the sky and the airplane trails. The sun is just well positionned.

you are a lucky girl ! fabulous this composition where the lines in the sky matched well with the lines in the roof. these scenes are gave to us by chance but your eyes and mind caught the whole aspect and created a masterpiece. well done




i like geometry....Thats all...I think this is enough for saying my expression....Thumbs Up.... :)

Bonjour Malgorzata,
C'est de la très belle photo. J'aime ce soleil radieux au milieu des traces des avions. Les reflets de la verrière du toit sont superbes et bien encadrés par les supports géométriques. Le plus c'est la présence des visiteurs en silhouette.

Hi M,
So interesting result, great graphisme with these lines, congratulations for this result.

Wow! My compliments, Malgorzata! This is one of the best photos which is saw today here. Superb capture! Outstanding graphism! TFS!

Hello Malgorzata,
An extraordinary moment as the sun was just between the jet-streems, and people stood as silhouettes on some roof or veranda directly in opposite POV.
Well managed mirror on roof and difficult light. I assume you managed this through glassed window.
Have a nice sunday,

Very nice picture, you played with the sky and the building lines in a great way

Cheers !
