Default New Angle - Wall Mural

This is about a 20 foot by fifteen foot painting. I thought a close crop would provide a new angle.

I'm not sure this is what Vanessa had in mind unless you are thinking of "new angle" in the sense of "new idea" or "new viewpoint on the subject". Great shot, anyway. The hands (with the gloves) add an interesting touch.

The hands are actually a part of the mural.

Calr the lines in pink are the hydro wires to an air conditioner Ive circled in red. Looking at the gloved hands one almost misses the a/c unit. We have a building similar in Toronto. The back end of a flat iron building that has a large mural on it. The windows are incorporated into the actual painting so they look more like part of the painting instead of the building.

Quite right. I briefly thought about cloning all this stuff out, but decided that that would be cheating. There is actually a long story about this mural, and how it came to be.

Wow! Color me impressed! I actually thought someone was holding up a framed picture. I didn't even notice the building details. Call me back when I'm awake! LOL!

Chato,
Like Calr I missed the wall mural effect. Thanks Bynx for opening our eyes.
Quite impressive shot and art work. Like the whales cavorting stuff Wyland has done around here and other cities.
Aloha

Well, hopefully I met the guidelines of the thread. Unlike my "Confrontation," which was a recent shot, but not made for this thread - The mural shot was indeed made just to post here...

Personally I dont see how you met the guidelines at all. This is a straightforward shot of a wall with a mural on it. Its not taken from a "different angle". If you were on the roof getting a shot looking down the wall from there, now that would be different. But the point of this forum is to get people to take pictures and if you shot this for the challenge then you met that part of it.

I didn't want to fool people as to what I was in fact shooting. Which is why I said, 20 ft x 15 ft mural. But I did shoot it to give the effect of someone hanging their painting in a living room. In other words, the "new angle."

If I didn't succed in this, ah well, try and try again.
