About the Image(s)

Riverfront Park in downtown Spokane features several structures that
were part of their 1974 worlds fair. The US Pavilion was a large
tent-like structure that dominated the skyline around the fairgrounds.
After the fair, the tent was removed, but the support pieces remained in
place. Later, a web of steel cable was installed, mimicking the lines of
the original tent.
I took this image with the camera pointed straight up. I liked the
interaction of the central support and the circle at the top with the
cables radiating away from the center. It was a gray, drizzly day so I
had to shoot quickly to keep rain off the lens, so my exposure was
darker than I would have liked. I didn't like the texture of the clouds,
so I increased exposure quite a bit to blow out the clouds and turn it
into a high-key image.

Sony A7R III, Sony 24-105 f/4 lens, 24mm, f/11, 1/200 second, ISO 400,
shot handheld.

I love the leading lines, the circular patterns and overall composition and much prefer the mono to the color. I have no suggestions for improvement.   Posted: 11/12/2020 20:34:46

Such a wonderful image Henry and so well seen! I am such a fan of lines in photographs and yours has these in spades! I did a quick play and because I was about to have my eyes go on strike I had to stop with this edit. But, what I was going for was a recurring pattern that you could suit something like wrapping paper or a mural. I was hoping for a radiating image but I am not that clever :)   Posted: 11/15/2020 19:38:53
