My second and final post of today.

These glass buildings fascinate me. I hope to manage to take some more colurful reflections of the sky and clouds in the glass, but today the sky was blue and not a cloud in sight. The levels and curves brought out the colours in the glass but seemed to do strange things to the colour of the sky. Critiques welcome as always.

Regards,

Syd

That's a cool shot, Syd.

It's interesting to see what people specialize in.

My specialty has been high school sports (cross-country, indoor/outdoor track).

You've got this thing happening with windows.

I'm sure if you keep attacking the problem, your stuff is going to get better and better.

I've seen some very cool downtown glass/sky/reflection photos done by pro's and they can get really really interesting.

Thank you Terry, that's encouraging. Today was a fine (but chilly) day, but no clouds or variations in the sky happening. I hope to get some better shots in next week. However, we're not really known for our sky scrapers as much as in the States and elsewhere. Still there's enough out there to experiment with. Looking up has given me a new perspective to work with at present.

Regards,

Syd

its not an unpleasant shot.. but its not as interesting as some of your others.. i think its like you said, cloudless day and you have not picked up any reflections..

i really liked that shot you did with the reflected colors in the window.. i think a series of building fronts with different reflections would be really cool.. while you are looking up, don't forget to look down every now and again.. you can find some really nice reflections on ground level windows too, and with less perspective distort as well.. plus you should watch where you are walking too..

I agree it's not half as interesting as my reflections post. I like it for it's blues. Colours really turn me on. However, woman/man does not live on colour alone.

I am going to be exploring these kind of shots, both high and low, and see if I can come up with some real dazzlers.

Thanks for your comments, they are much appreciated.

Syd

At my age ( in photography) I don't want to specialise yet. I want to learn bits here and there. We will see what happens. That is why I am in every business that I can spare time to participate in.

Yah, I agree with Terry that this seem to be your calling. Build on it if you feel this is the direction you should go. Lol. kind regards. Jaki.:homey:
