About the Image(s)

Lately I have been taking my camera out to college campuses (closed for their Christmas break) to capture the architecture there. It has been an interesting activity to see the old, the new, and the “what were they thinking” architecture. This one was shot at UMASS Dartmouth of the side of a glass-walled building. I got myself in as tight as possible and tried to as much of the wall as possible. My major regret is not being able to capture the top and bottom of the wall. Maybe, I’ll return with my 10-24mm and/or my fish-eye. Particulars for this were f/10 @ 1/180 sec. Captured in RAW and processed with the help of Luminar and NIK.

Like the creativity you had for this photo. Would be interested to see how it comes out with a wider lens or fish eye.

An intriguing image but I'm not sure where you were to shoot this. It's a reflection but I can't get my head around where you were standing! You must have squashed yourself pretty tightly against the mirrored wall - is that right? It certainly an unusual structure. Is the fence a security fence or just artistic? More questions than suggestions from me this time - but I did enjoy the puzzle.   Posted: 02/06/2021 06:41:39

Peter, I was leaning up against the glass wall as close as I could get. I forget what I did in post-processing. I think I may have flipped it but I'm not sure. But the tight crop gives it a different feel, I thought.   Posted: 02/06/2021 15:43:41

Nice image. Based on the image...check the U on the building, I feel pretty certain that you did flip it but never made the change on the U. I wonder if you would have been able to get the full height of the building had you stepped back a bit and then cropped in post processing.
Nicely done.   Posted: 02/08/2021 13:40:49

Well seen and well executed. Modern architecture is either like it or loathe it, but a seeing eye can create some interesting images such as you have created here.   Posted: 02/13/2021 05:12:51

I like the perspective and symmetry. The sky on the right doesn't match the left.   Posted: 02/25/2021 18:12:30

I really like this shot Joe. The composition and color are outstanding. I agree that a very wide angle lens in portrait orientation capturing the top of the sculpture would be even better.   Posted: 02/26/2021 11:02:33
