Urban tree (Station Georges Vanier)

Les architectes des stations de métro Montréal se sont vraiment lachés. Une forme d'art froid et bétonneux mais qui est loin d'être inintéressant. Plus j'en vois et plus je me dit qu'on pourrait faire un thème rien que la dessus. Bonne semaine !

The architects who designed the Montreal's subway stations were a bit eccentric. A kind of cold and concreted art but which is far to be uninteresting. The more I see, the more I think we could do a complete theme on that. Have a nice week !

  • The top half of the image looks like something out of a computer game (and I mean that in a good way). Great use of scale!

  • Trop cool Julien! Je crois que tu viens de capturer la vision des futurs urbains! ;) (Non, vraiment, j'espere que non.) Superbe photo.

  • Perfect title! I wonder if the designer thought the same thing.

  • Une sculpture de lumière glauque en contrepoint la solitude urbaine. Très beau.

  • Bonjour Julien. Banal que de te dire encore une fois "Superbe" . Le traitement de tes photos est vraiment de premier ordre. Ce que j'aime dans celle-ci, c'est la dimension et la force de cet ouvrage que tu as su retranscrire, sublimées par la présence humaine qui en donne toute la puissance. L'Homme ce bâtisseur depuis la nuit des temps ... mais qui petit petit poursuit aussi le chemi de sa propre destruction. A bientôt Julien

  • great lightting and composition - like she's waiting under a tree sculpture...
    Howard @ 2006-06-12 16:54
  • a perfect exposure on this one! When I was in Montreal my first time, the first metro station I saw was Lucien L'allier.. It looked like a dungeon to me! Quite a difference from Berri-UQAM!
    Ron: @ 2006-06-12 22:37
  • Excellent exposure and composition. This is such a weird feature, it looks like something from an 80s sci-fi or horror movie. Great capture.
    Phil @ 2006-06-13 03:48
  • I came across your site as a Canadian one on the coolblogs site, and then recognized you from I'm glad I found you, ... you are wonderfully talented and shall become a regular stopping ground for me.
    Lynn @ 2006-06-13 11:57
  • I like it very much! Great composicion and subject (the tree). It's like extracted from Gotham, I like the scale added by the woman.
    chema @ 2006-06-13 17:18
  • Merci tous une fois de plus pour avoir partagé vos impressions
    Again, thank you very much everyone for sharing your impressions
    Julien @ 2006-06-13 22:48
  • Technically perfect.
    Wim van der Meij @ 2006-06-14 01:18
  • outstanding photo. awfully cold and de-humanising architecture - unless the designer wanted the humans to feel like ants though
    david @ 2006-06-14 02:39
  • I think the Montreal Metro reflects its era (late 60s)... just like the Toronto subway reflects its own (50s). It looks cool nonetheless.
    Jordan @ 2006-06-14 08:58
  • > très belles lumières, bonne compo .. l'ambiance est saisissante et les couleurs, n'en parlons pas. nice job :)

  • ISO 400?! Where's the banding? :) Great shot!
    Joe @ 2006-06-16 15:21
  • > Joe : Haha :), I think this problem of banding was only prensent in the first release of the D200. I never saw this problem with mine except when you lighten parts of the picture that is really really too dark.

  • a very nice capture. love the angle and the lighting. superb shot julien.
