Such a fine composition. The rail in the foreground echoes the pyramid so well. Nice work.

613photo from Dallas, United States

Pretty cool. An oft-photographed subject being photographed often in the frame. With such strong lines I'm confused about what the subject is...the photographers or IM Pei's pyramid? It's a good sort of confusion to have, not the bad kind. Excellent and unique perspective.

Great shot Ian! Love the angles.
And congrats on your new website! Looks good, and hope it proves profitable for you! I'll soon have my own site ready shortly (Only a gallery based one though).

The apart drifting lines open the picture for the viewer. You have chosen a fantastic perspective.

unusual angle of view ! good perspective and composition with the others photographers

Cool point of view. I have never seen it from that angle before.

Mirza Ahmad from Thames Ditton, United Kingdom

Nice work Ian.

Vincent Bertrand from Montréal, Canada

Superb composition and work with the perspective lines to give another inverted triangle complementing the pyramid. The girl makes this shot work even better, giving a sense of dimension and composition element to "sit" (no pun) the left-most portion of the frame. Great, great work!

Danny from Hong Kong

Hi Ian,

This is an excellent picture with great composition. I also like the 'Winter Mist' and '1958 Munich Air Disaster' pictures.

I read what you wrote on my dear Hugo Poon page and came back to you - not the first time i enjoy my tour in your wonderful portfolio, Ian. There are gems ! And a great variety of subjects, angles, compositions that all prove you have much more than a couple of eyes ~ love that. Thanks*
(love the geometrical compo, in today's pic, with the dialogue between reverse triangles). See you...

Michael Paulison from United States

The triangle in front of the pyramid like that make an interesting composition. The woman photographing adds great life to the shot. THis is really well done and not the common shot. BTW... I really wish I was there enjoying the museum right now.

wow! What a stunning composition! I really like this wide angle shot, the triangle taking us through the frame. Outstanding in every way.

This is a great perspective and B&W is very good. A friend of mine was thrown out of here recently for being dressed as Elvis!!
