Used to be Blue [SeptemberChallenge2009-03]

    Newer Older

    Shot for September 2009 Challenge: a month of black-and-whites.

    I've shot this building several times before; it's just across the street from my office, and is the first thing to catch my eye on days with interesting cloud patterns. I really liked the color version of this also; maybe I'll post it tomorrow for comparison.

    Looks nice Large On Black

      Couldn't tell what this was in the thumbnail! Wow! Great light! :)

      Wow, this is an intense BW. The reflections are spot on yet the horizontal lines break it up give a surreal feel. This is excellent!

      All right DMU: today it was either this or the butterfly... let 'er rip.

      almost nice... there is a muddled feeling to it.
      i wish it were super sharp...

      Well done hit I keep gettingbugged by the left of the frame - it seems to be crowding the image

      I wish I could go wider from this angle, I was backed up against a fence. Could move farther down the sidewalk but then I'm shooting a different side of the building (like this).

      everyone takes cliche photos sometimes

      the trick is not submitting them to DMU


    12. Scott Coulter 68 months ago | reply

      j / f / photos Maybe I should submit something more like this?

      I like the comp and the subject, but the framing seems off to me. It sucks that you're up against a fence for the shot. Maybe bring the right edge in to match the left side?

      -Voted 'delete' in DMU.

      I want to like it but there are too many reflections.

      Camouflage building. Left and right edge of the building should be centered on the sides of the frame.


      Seen in the group"DeleteMe Uncensored: bitch fest 2009" (?)

      OK, I pulled the original file up and tried cropping to make the edges match. It still sucks. The only choice would be to re-shoot from another spot (or with a wider lens... on my Christmas wish-list).
