Challenge: Late Night (Basic Editing III)
Collection: Challenges 2005
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S7000
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Date: Apr 30, 2005
Aperture: f/ 8.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 9.85 seconds
Galleries: Abstract, Architecture
Date Uploaded: May 3, 2005

Took another look at my favorite Philly edifice. Shot from the top level of a parking garage diagonally across the street at 10:51 PM. Maybe not late enough for some but when the lights are out inside, there's not much to see. The camera was on a table top tripod on a congrete pillar on the corner of the lot. Would have liked to have gotten rid of the tree in the atrium and some bright lights, but well...you know.

Excellent shot with lovely combination of lines, forms and colours. This good night shot also makes a great abstract. 9

WOWZA... more comment later, parkign at 6 for now. Oof, got back to it. I was struggling with how well this very fine image fits into the "late night" aspect of the challenge. It's my desire to reward people who managed to catch the "feeling" of late night. This does it for me, regardless. But I was an architectural photographer, so I wanted to be fair, not be biased towards it for that reaosn alone. But I keep getting that tsark, early-morning, sterile-light sense from it that I knwo so well. so you get the BUMP.

I don't know this place but it makes an excellent night abstract.

nice geometrical composition, I'd cut out the upper part , but it's only a point of view cause the black top left arrow could be also a point of interest for the composition itself. nice

Superb shot. The only thing I could nitpick would be the tree seems to ruin a perfect image. 9

Nice abstract, but I don't get the sense of late night from it.
