About the Image(s)

One of my favorite building to photograph located on the VA Hospital Grounds in Milwaukee. This complex has a history that goes back to the 1800's. Recently some of the more outstanding buildings have gone through total refurbishment. The interior of the building has changed into individual apartments for vets. The exterior is once again returned to it's original grace.

How I Did It: Post processing included PSE and Nik. Camera settings: f11, 1/200 sec., ISO 200

You did a great job on this building. Well composed, the textures on the building itself are obvious and the icing on the cake is the sky. Was that natural or maybe borrowed from Photoshop or Luminar? And, by the way did you see the plane (?) up there just to the left of the left tower?   Posted: 02/14/2021 12:51:29

Hi Beverly, Glad to have you checking up on us! The sky is true; with my polarizer. I did see the plane/bird and left it in the sky. This is a view of the back of the building. The front was still under construction when I took the photo. But I will return when it's finished and the weather is warmer. Chilly today w/single digits. Hope all is fine with you.   Posted: 02/14/2021 13:48:51

sharp focus, good colors and sky. Wish I could see a bit of the building sitting on the ground.   Posted: 02/19/2021 05:47:42

Priscilla- You did very well with good detail of the building, smooth lighting falling on the building, pleasing color of the building. I think you left no room for further improvement.
Well done Priscilla.

Such a charming building and if this is the back, hope you will share the front of it once it's finished. I think the photo is great as is and won't change a thing. Well done!   Posted: 02/22/2021 13:15:12

It seems like there is an "Old Main" in almost every town. This is a lovely building. I wish the tree on the left was not there to cover part of the building, but it is what it is.   Posted: 02/26/2021 10:37:04
