Great detail in the Foxgloves, levels may need some fine tuning.

When I saw the subject line, I immediately thought Newport, Oregon which is on the central Oregon coast. However there are no buidlings like that in Newport, OR.

Great shots.

Nice shots, but I don't see the repetition being the central focus in the first shot, surely there are repeating things in the picture but that isn't what I think of when I look at the shot. It is your challenge though so you can make the rules.:blah: I see it more in your second shot but would agree the levels need some adjusting. I am sure your aware, but for those who aren't, when shooting a scene that is primarily white as this one is or one of a snowy landscape, all that white can fool the camera's metering and it will try to turn it to a neutral grey. You can overcome this problem by dialing in + exposure in 1/3 increments until you get the exposure you want and it comes out white.

The second shot obviously demonstrates repetition. The firstdoes take a bit of critical viewing but the arches and windows are repetitive.

A bit of editing will fix the color balance in the foxglove shot.

It's surely a pleasurable job for the eye to follow the repetitive elements inyour architectural photo, Vanessa. Some more would be a feast, if you can procure

Vanessa,

How did you get the shot of the mansion through the chain link fence? I was just there in June and took the same shot, but have fence in the corners. :-) Or, maybe it was one of the other ones. I can't find it on my computer now. Just the off white one. Have you ever gone on a tour of any of them. We had intended to in June, but didn't have time.

By the way, lovely shots. I love the foxglove.
