Challenge: Rhythm III (Advanced Editing V)
Collection: Challenges 2007
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Fajaheel, Kuwait
Date: Jul 20, 2007
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Jul 22, 2007

We don't get to go into town just to sightsee, but sometimes we do have to travel between camps here in Kuwait. On one such occasion, we stopped off in a town called Fajaheel (I think it is) and there's a lovely new Western-style mall. We took a walk through, but as it was before 4 pm, most of the shops were closed. The people who live here very wisely don't go anywhere during the heat of the day.

Anyway, this is the walkway outside the mall. I quite liked the shadows created combined with the architecture. And since it's rare that I get to shoot here, figured I may as well enter this in a challenge.

ahh Deb
this is awesome

feels like piano keys and if you put some concerto with a little zing behind it, would work as an illustration of what music can look like...or perhaps the sound of a solitary pair of heels clicking along hte sidewalk...

geesh it is early but did someone put something funny in the coffee this morning??

Congrats on the score! Beautiful photo. I gave it a 7. I love the black and white and love all the lines in it. The angled corridor is pretty cool. I'm glad you got to take some pics on your "vacation". :)

Very dramatic image. Love the lines and patterns and the B&W works very well here. One of the best images in this challenges. The only distraction is the white light(?) at the top of the image but I don't know what you could have done about that. 10!

I won't vote since we discussed this in our team thread, Deb, but it's really a terrific shot - let's call it a phantom 8. Add a fave from me. :)

a complicated jazz rhythm, one of those really fast players, but a familiar tune... like Miles playing Over the Rainbow... sublime.

A very strong composition with good b&w conversion. i imagine this would look good framed in a plain balck frame on the wall.
