Default Sometime at lunch time ..

you can get a couple of neat shots!

This is a north side view of Edmonton, Alberta as taken from the EPCOR Tower (21st floor balcony) using the Rokinon Fisheye on the OM-D. A storm was on its way and the ugly white tower was ignoring it (as it should)

The way this shot was done, the white tower in the middle of the frame got, even if the storm is quite visible, all the attention.

The shot was cropped in order to remove the balcony at the bottom of the frame and I filtered it using the Topaz "Spicified" filter.




Now, This is the Art Gallery of Alberta (in the background) with a traditional Teepee builded in front of it for the Works Arts Festival.

It is interesting to compare the architecture for both places.



For this one, all the colours were removed with the exception of Red. I also boosted the details with Topaz.

folob - the tepee is awesome, inspiring and moving. It looks like the teepee was isolated and the color removed from all but it. The storm is cool too, perfect use of the fish-eye.

Really interesting shots, folob. The first one has a dramatic feel, and the monochrome plus the red is excellent.

Second shot reminds me of one of the famous scene from Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin, where the red flag is hung on the ship (supposedly the frame was painted in the Moscow Premiere):
