A souvenir I brought back from my recent trip in Barcelona, Spain.
I just love how the old meets the modern... Barcelona is beautiful!!
I took 2 different photos and merged them together to get this final pic.
(I've always thought the sky was missing information for city pictures...)

Pencil Vs Camera - 64 by BenHeine 

Fall Between

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

My soul would love to be there
Alone in its peaceful mind...
Fall between wisdom everywhere
Leaving structured reality behind
Footsteps of echoing space
Something to construct or find
Outward appearance in all its ways
Inside and outside of mind

Yesterday sometimes like new
Tomorrow that comes in peace
That is in reality completely true
Is what you from inside can see
Going thru its experience hours
Is what you know and can trust
So is it with concreted flowers
That time swallows to its dust

My space is inside acquaintance
Two bladed perceptions across
Declining times rumbling trance
Perfectly fine-tuned from chaos
Going thru building and breaking
Deep from the hollow of its view
Inside your thoughts are taking
Some that becomes part of you

The first thing I felt when I saw this piece was a feeling or "vértigo", like we say in Spain. A sense of dizzyness like when you are in a high place. (The next thing I thought of was the movie Inception) It's stunning for it's beauty and view.
I love how it fades into the distance, so you can't be sure if these two paralel worlds go on forever or now. It really is a crazy thing, difficult to describe. But it is amazing. This is indeed a beautiful picture, (well, pictures) and you can really appreciate the beautiful city view and the atmosphere of the place. You can recognise what city it is esily, if you've been in it; and is that the Santa Eulalia cathedral?
Anyway, this is an amazing picture, from the perfect angle and awesome editing. I hope you had a nice time in Spain!

First glance at the thumb, and I thought "This has to be drawing." It's very cleverly, and skillfully done. I love how the two pics are so well blended. It's like seeing parallel worlds that are similar aside from a few details, being seen at once. I actually love seeing sky in any pic, be they countryside or cityscape, but only when it's that nice brilliant blue. The sky I can see is kinda pale and stagnant, so I can certainly understand the urge to cover it up with something or apply colorization effects. This idea worked really well. NICELYDONESIR!

Well, this seems to work best with citys - not too many too bright colours, similar structures.... This one is very, very well done again.

The only thing wrong with this photograph is that I'm not the one who took it! It's fantastic.

I somehow imagine this is what the future would look like, only there are monorails going everywhere, and the design is more akin to the Axiom from WALL-E

I'm from Barcelona! I totally agree with you about it's a beautiful city!

The photo is great, it's so original! But you have also changed the locations of the buildings and reputed them, haven't you? :D It's great being able to edit the citt as you want to get a perfect composition and perspective effect!
