    Caught a glimpse, pressed the shutter

    I spent last Sunday doing a Sweet 16 photo shoot in Spokane. Spent a good part of the day chasing two 16 y.o. girls around the park, taking pictures. As I was running past the Convention Center, trying to catch up, I caught a glimpse of this and just raised the D40 and pressed the shutter. Untouched, except for cropping the ceiling off some.

    I like it.

    Interesting shot -- not sure if I'm "interpreting" it correctly though ... looks to me like the building is being demolished and that some middle parts are about to fall away ...

    ... however, I'm trying to decide if this is just some distortion from the glass that the reflactions are from?

    Perhaps you can tell us a bit more?

    Building in the background is under construction. Orange building is fairly new. The reflections inthe windows throws everyting into a tub, shakes it up and dumps it back out kinda willy-nilly.

    Good shot. I do a lot of reflections as they can create a different look without too much Photoshopping. I hope you don't mind me doing an edit, but I was just replying to the 'contrast' thread (Getting more contrast) and it struck me that this shot would benefit from some more contrast, and bringing out the details in the darker left side.

    I agree it needs a bit of post processing, but I have been busy with two photoshoot's aftermath. ~260 shots Saturday and over 400 Sunday, to sort, cull, enhance and deliver. I like the work you've done so far. Thanks

    TOUGH! I did, and they like to drove me crazy!

    The girls haven't signed a release, yet, except for facebook. If they give me a general release, I have a couple I might put up here.
