A reflection of the people taken on the famous installation in town Zadar (Croatia) called "Greeting to the Sun". Right after the sunset, when the lights on the installation turned on, I was sitting on the floor shooting and waiting for the right moment to catch this photo.
I knew what I wanted to shoot, but since there was a lot of people watching, walking and enjoying the show in front of them, it was really a matter of luck for me to have them perfectly lined up, and that nobody walks in front of me. I guess I was lucky.
The photo has a reflection of people and the sunset colors in a combination with light effects on the glass panels.
Interesting facts about the "Greeting to the Sun":
"After the world-known Sea Organs, Zadar has become wealthier with one more urban installation. On Istarska obala, at the very end of the Zadar peninsula, next to the famous Sea Organs, shines the Greeting to the Sun made by the same architect Nikola Baić.
The Greeting to the Sun consists of three hundred multi-layered glass plates placed on the same level with the stone-paved waterfront in the shape of a 22-meter diameter circle. Under the glass conduction plates there are photo-voltage solar modules through which symbolic communication with nature is made, with the aim to communicate with light, just like the Sea Organs do with sound.
Simultaneously with the most beautiful sunset in the world" the lighting elements installed in a circle turn on, and, following a particularly programmed scenario, they produce a marvelous, exceptionally impressive show of light in the rhythm of the waves and the sounds of the Sea organs.
