    Gentrification

    I drive past the renovation of older terrace houses in the inner city suburbs every night and saw this opportunity. The old fashion light and mottled walls attracted my attention.

    Hi Peter, I like the second photo focusing on the old light. The first one is OK but seems to have too many subjects in the frame.

    Regards, Yan

    Although, this image might work in black and white.

    Hi Peter,

    I can't see any EXIF, but I suspect both shots would work better (at isolating the lamp), if shot with a wide aperture (for narrow DoF), probably combined with a longer focal length, hence shot from further away.

    There's a lamp on the wall of a public house near me that I should photograph, perhaps for Pops 'seen it and captured it' (next semester project) thread - especially as I think the building will be demolished soon.

    Cheers,

    Thanks John,

    I might have a look at B & W, sounds a good idea.

    Also Dave I had a problem with a very closeby tree limiting the angle of the shoot and also a very busy roadway right behind me but I like the idea. I did note the tree has now gone so I too might re-visit for Pops program.

    Mere details ...

    I took a "caught my eye" shot of mine with BlackBerry tonight, but might have to wait until weekend to do it properly. I may be dodging the traffic too

    Cheers,

    I do not do a lot of architecture but I am trying to expand my horizons and I do even less B&W. Anyway I had go at converting image 1. All C&C welcome.

    Not bad, I would try a darker border. The white border competes with the greys in the image.

    Peter,

    Agreed, the dark border helps lead the eyes into the image.
