Default High Society Parking Garage

Shot this garage wall near the Meyerson Symphony Center in downtown Dallas with the E620 and 12-60 Zuiko, using the Pop Art filter, then tweeked them a little more using Photoshop CS4.

...that is pretty catchy, it takes a bit to see it all, AND a nice photo of it too, fun stuff

Smugmug is as slow as a snail tonight.

Preparing myself for my first trip to the symphony in a while on Friday. I was at the Meyerson last week, but it was to see the Moody Blues. This Friday night will be a little more subdued with Tchaikovsky.

Hi Greg,


That's a really most impressive wall mural!

Whenever I look at photos that have been taken using the art filter, I'm almost always thinking that I would like to have also seen it without the filter applied so as to determine which I would prefer. I don't feel that way with this capture as it looks great as is.. Did you tone down the color in CS4?

Greg,

You have really captured the essence of that mural and a giant one at that. How wide did you go on your 12 - 60mm to take this?

I actually added both vibrance and saturation to this one via the two manual sliders that open up when you click on that option. The other images I have shot using this filter were taken in bright daylight, where this one was under full shade and the color saturation did not seem as bold as the others.

Not too wide actually as I stood back quite a ways. This was shot at 23mm.

I couldnt figure out the perspective either at first even though some of the floors are visible at the top but it was not until I saw the car parked in the corner that I realized how big the mural is. It would be interesting to find out how much time and how many people made an effort to pull this amazing piece of art.

According to this video it's not as difficult as it appears:
