Yuck, crappy wheather, cold, and exam period, so I'm indoors 24/7 nowadays, till the end of the month. Worst situation ever for a photographer

here's a try at architecture from a few weeks ago:

all with the SMC-A 50mm f1.7

Good shots. I also like the 1st one the best. However, I would be inclined to crop the top of the pic to remove the white beam, which I find IMHO distracting.

thanks for the compliments everyone

I liked the first one best too, for a couple of reasons:
it shows how rectilinear the SMC-A 50mm 1.7 really is. Absolutely no barrel distortion or pincushion. It is a crop though, because I wanted that "Stanley Kubrick-effect"
I think the fact that it was raining and the tiles were wet amplifies the depth of the photo, giving it a more dramatic light.
It's also like 20 frames around the actual subject, the subject is literally lost in the frame. The frame becomes the image


ok, I'm done now analysing my own snapshot...lol :lol:

I guess us photographers have to be poets sometimes, you've got to be able to talk enough bs about your own work

Really like the first one! The last one made me dizzy, looking up like that!
