Challenge: Red II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D
Location: Seattle Public Library
Date: Feb 28, 2007
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/6
Date Uploaded: Feb 28, 2007

Taken at the Seattle Public library. The folks on the other side are going up an escalator. I'm on the red side (meeting floor).

Used my SB-600 pointed straight up at the ceiling to fill in the front red. Shot with my 20mm. Non-crop except to change to 8x10 format (taken off the left side). Small curves adjustment.

Wish the other person in the back wasn't so dead on. Not expecting much on this one since Red isn't the only color. Probably a 5.0, but I have been off with my guesses lately.

Another great shot of this wonderful building. That meeting floor is something to behold in person!

I like the composition. the diagonal extends invisibly all the way to the lower right-hand corner. Very cool image, though I might agree with meyers. less yellowish cast might make this more compelling. yellow tends to muddy things.

I like the framing, but the scene behind it looks like it has too much of a green cast. The lights above the people are a little distracting, though that might have been unavoidable.

Great job on this one! Your library is really, really red!! I enjoyed this, and like the outtake just as well.

Relly cool shot Jayson. I love the angle. Once again you have the soft focus in front and the sharp focus in back. I don't know if that really affects scores but it should have been higher than it was.
