Caryl,
It appears that you had a wide-angle lens mounted on your camera. That accounts for the accented convergence of the building lines. It also appears that you had a polarizing filter. The sky on the left is significantly darker than the sky on the right.

As Mtngal pointed out in the polarizer challenge, this is one of the disadvantages of using a polarizer with a wide angle lens.

Nevertheless, it is still a great photo.

I used a Leica M8 and no wide angle lens. I did not use a polarizer either since I have neither for my M8.

Obviously took some time and patience taking this shot since just about everything is lined up... Good job.

Thank you Selvin.
Convergence is a mathematical term I remember from college. I had done 50 convergence problems and got all the right answers by doing them all wrong in several different ways. I thought I had discovered a new math theory . i went to the chairman of the dept to show him what I had done and he found it amazing that i could have gotten them all right in so many wrong ways. No I had not discovered anything at all.
Thanks for the memory. Every time I see this thread, I remember it all over again.

Nice one Caryl!

I am usually not one for 'modern art' - but whatever that sculpture is, it strikes an interesting chord and actually is rather aesthetically pleasing to me.

Nice sets of converging lines that you've shared... and to see some summer sun as we're in mid winter here.

Thanks for sharing the story of your convergance college 'right answers via wrong methods'! How cool is and was that!!!

Cheers

Paul
