Photographer’s Notes
The photo is of a classic (circa 1900) building in Seattle’s central district, just around the corner form Pioneer Square. I have a number of shots of it but this one brings out the fantastic detail of the architecture best, in my opinion.
I tried bracketing EV Comp and combining in an HDR version for the January Free Study, but in truth, I like the Basic Editing version much better.

Great colors. I am not a fan of the tilted crop, though.

I normally hate, hate, hate tilt. But I don't hate this. I like the colour and detail and the overall composition.

I like this one a lot. May have been a bit better (for me) if the angle was on an exact 45 degree. Light and colour are excellent. 9

Nice sharp Detail. Angle provides interest. good shot.

Very nice colors and I like the diagonal very much - makes the shot more interesting than it would have been straight. Back to bump you up to 8.

love the contrast of the two colors, but the angle really throws me off. I keep tilting my head.

great color and texture. I applaud your different approach in making this crooked, but feel like you went into the middle ground. I think you should have eather left it straight, or go pretty much COMPLETELY sideways with it. Still nice work

Nice personal point of view. The light was at a good angle to reveal the form and colour. 7.

Tilting doesn't make it better...

very nice im liking the color tones and the fact that you changed the angle...even though a straight on shot. It works good job.
