Challenge: Free Study VIII (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Sony DSC-W1
Location: Botanical Garden - Curitiba - Brasil
Date: Mar 27, 2005
Aperture: F 2,8
ISO: ISO 100
Shutter: 1/5s
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Mar 28, 2005

Shot at the botanical garden, in Curitiba, Brasil.
Also known as the "Crystal Palace". But it's just a Green house. It's one of the city's postcards.
I got very lucky this day cz it was a bright sunny day (despite the clouds). But the best shots came out during the sun set.
Cloned out some light posts on the back of the greenhouse (rest of the park), darkened the city on the background to give more of a silouette look to it. Burned the clouds and a bit of the foreground to remove the rest of the scenery from the park.
That's it.
Lot's of effort was put into this one. I know it's a hard challenge, a Free Study. But it think this one will score well. I hope so LoL.

I really like this picture for its beauty within a regular place.
The green inside the glass house is just amazing and just reminds me of a different world. Great shot.

Seems too overprocessed/saturated. Nice subject matter though.

i love the subject and basic composition, but am not too keen on the sky. i may be wrong, but it just feels over-processed. i think the subject could be the focus of a study in and of itself. good luck!

Too much blue in the clouds

I wonder? How about cropping off the left side. the glow of the buiding against the dark blue sky may do the trick. It is a very good photo.
