      Yes, well done, the composition is great.

      Thanks all! I've been trying to get a shot of these slides that I'm happy with for ages; and this one might be it.
      I tried it in b&w michael, but I missed the green, and I like the reflection of the ground floor sodium lights on the belly of the slide.
      Feel free to download it and have a go yourself though. You might be right - I didn't play with it much.

      Very cool shot! Great candidate for HDR, too.

      You're right, Eric, I've found it pretty much impossible to get a faithful picture without it.

      Stunning! I really like the almost fibonacci/golden ratio shapes of the slides. Maybe there is a group for this.

      Yes, they're very organic and that's what I've had trouble capturing before. On the one hand, they're really really cool slides, but they're also arranged beautifully. I've not really been able to get that across until I tried shooting vertically. It's counterintuitive because the setting invites to you look at them from pretty much every angle but along the axis. But, as it happens, lying on your back with your head against the central column is probably the best POV.

      You have a great eye. Your composition is always perfect.

      Your treatment certainly brings out the worm-likeness of this installation.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called The People's Museum, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
