    Quick Shoot Downtown

    Was waiting for my foster brother to finish school, so I did a quick drive and got a few shots in.

    1. Beautiful Church

    2. Glass Design on one of the pillars

    3. Corner of the church, i removed 2 building edges on either side. Will also go back to get a better pic without the shadows.

    Hi Bill,

    Nice series.

    I might have tried some perspective correction on #1 and #4, but other than that, not a lot to say.

    I agree with #1 being monochrome, it must help minimise the impact of the signs and cars that are unavoidably in shot.

    The more I see 'architectural' shots of different places, the more I think "that's a nice place with some
    interesting buildings', but (and I know it's true of Windsor, even without the castle) it is probably true of almost any city or large town, anywhere in the world. We just need to open our eyes and view our environs, which we take for granted because we see them everyday, with fresh eyes (or a new perspective - groan).

    Well done,

    Like Dave, I like #1 in monochrome. I went to your own site to see if you had any of that church in colour, to check out the what the roof/spires looked like (which you do). You've done a good conversion on #1 getting the richness of tone in the roof.

    Thanks for the comment guys.

    I really do prefer churches and older building done in monochrome, it seems to show the character better. I was a bit pressed for time with these shots, I plan to go back for some different perspectives very soon, will post them when done.

    Cheers
