I found this shot while waiting for Aimee to get out of work. Pulled over, hopped out of the car, took 6 shots using my hand to block the sun glare and then got back in the car. Took all of 45 seconds if that from door opening to door closing. My initial crop was much wider and included another row of windows to the left. But it felt too unbalanced. I hate going with long skinny images but this one worked out well. Very glad with the score. This is different than my usual work.

What a great find. It's a good city shot - love how you've captured all the wear and tear and textures of the building. Added bonus with having that guy sitting there too. Congrats on the blue!

so much for typecasting you =) The king of studio and family shots steps into the urban arena and gets the blue. I believe the kids nowadays might call this "sick" - which I hear is a good thing =P

Great shot and well deserved blue. Never thought this could be yours. BTW: Is that a relative of you sitting there? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2008 02:54:39 AM
I gave this a very high score, as it was a great natural street candid find with the letter ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Well done Tim, and I am very pleased, that it please you as well, as it also pleased me.

Deserved the BLUE..... that's for sure.....

One of my favs in this challenge. Excellent pp work. Very interesting and balanced composition. The way the person is positioned on one side and the doorway on the other side is really good. And no one can miss the obvious Z on the top. Great shot!
