Thanks everyone for the votes and comments! Almost cracked the top ten. :)

Abit about this shot, I am actually outside the building shooting through the skylight...
This is in the DOE library at UC berkeley campus, to get in to it you need to be a student or faculty with proper ID. I was going to try and talk my way in after work but it was closed. I was just walking around campus when I realized that I was standing right over where it would be. If you click on this photo below. I first took my little gorilla pod and pushed it as high as I could on top and realized it saw straight down. But it was not a good angle so I looked for any authority figure and climbed up the wall and pt my camera out as far a I cold and used the timer to shoot then jumped down 5 feet :) I shot through the green glass and it wasn't so clean. I should have added some saturation though.

Very cool angle! The colors are too washed out unfortunately...

Very nice capture of a geometric pattern that most patrons of the library would miss - hidden, but not invisible.

Cool picture and I like the composition. I do feel that the picture lacks some contrast and could benifit from a little noise reduction.

looks more washed out than it should. not sure if it's the exposure of contrast that's throwing my eye off...

An interesting viewpoint. I really like the colours but it is a little grainy.
