Das Hamburger Rathaus am Rathausmarkt.
When the Weekly Photo Challenge of this week was presented – Distorted – only one image immediately came to mind.
This is one of my favourite pictures. I love the colour – how the photo mainly consists of blue/green, white/beige and red/brown, all nicely layered. The horizontal and vertical lines.
But most of all I love the way it is distorted – the way that distortion results in slanted walls and lamp posts, guiding the eye towards the tip of the tower.
I took this picture with my ultra-wide angle lens. One of the ‘disadvantages’ of these kind of lenses is that they distort your view, particularly on the edges.
Or you can just play with it and make it work for you!
