Photographer's Note

RbN 7 - Spacetower

Displayed in this NightHunt capture is a part of the viewing platform of the Euromast.

The Euromast has been restyled and a few years ago. In this process it didnt only loose its grittiness but also its sense of wonder. The restaurant was restyled by mainstream designer Jan des Bouvrie and the top level an external rotating elevator fitted with windows slowly rising to 190 m lost its name (Spacetower), special lighting and sound effects while starting its ascent..... and is now called Eurosocoop.

Framing this shot I was searching for that ol Spacetower atmosphere.

The yellow structure is the concrete base of the Euroscoop, the metallic structure on the left houses an elevator. In the bottom-right corner is a part of nocturnal industrial Rotterdam to be discerned .

PCS2 tech: cropped, altered the contrast, saturation, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, applied the high pass filter to enhance the textures, USM-ed , added a frame and saved for the web.

Rinies pic is here.
