when i am looking at this shot.. i want to see the texture of the walls and how that interplays with the surroundings.. i think there is a shot in this scene, but i believe it has to do with the texture and the geometry of the wall versus the white things.. maybe a closer up type abstract isolating one of the white things from an interesting perspective.. not really sure though.. as is,i don't a place for my eyes to fall on.. i keep going back and forth between the white things and the flag.. shots like this are very subjective though, and that is just my 2 cents on it..

thanks for sharing.. dustin

i like this shot very much. i find the flag to be in competition with the other vertical line next to it, it is distracting. i think the other elements work well.

I did a PP on this and basically took out your primary intention of this shot and did this to it.

I hope that it is ok to illustrate that this shot is a very good one and I cloned out the flag and the white lighting fixtures at the bottom of this excellent capture.

When I post these photo's they are in public domain. As a curtisie I would hope you would leave my inials on the photo, but other than that anyone is welcome to modify or change the photo in any way they would wish to. I like what you did and think a name change would be in order.

i like this edit.. the additional contrast helps with the geometry.. and removing the flag helps with the lines in the skylight..

you know what the funny thing is.. i never really understood the title of this until you all started talking about it.. then of course i felt like an idiot.. lol


best regards, dustin

That was how I felt when I was framing the shot. At first I didn't see the flag and when I did the name just popped into my head! Thanks for your comments Dustin!
