Photographer’s Notes
I shoot architectural photography for builders, architects, owners, and trades. I have a gig going to shoot a site under construction about every 3 weeks for the 6-8 months it will take to complete it. Here’s a shot from ‘Shoot 2.’

This is fun. My client is open to unconventional looks. While this is wilder than I would normally like – he likes it a lot.

This won't be to everyone's taste - but my bank likes it.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An eye-catching image for the FS study

It is certainly a very strident image with punchy colours that cannot fail to grab your attention. There are some very clean steel components of which I like the vivid blue interiors. The composition is a little cluttered but generally acceptable.

I don't like the blown highlights or the processing especially the fuzzy vignette for me it spoils the whole image but as you say, its not going to appeal to all but if it serves its purpose which it certainly has for you then it has worked.

Thanks, Sid

Not big on the added tilt-shift (or is it iris?) blur. Great blues on the pipes in the center.

I like all the spacing of the elements. Not sure the processing or soft focus effects work for me.
