I took a little walk after church and shot both for the Gas Station and Tilted Horizon Challenges. This view of the Schuylkill River separates Center City from West Philadelphia, though the area right is called University City...I don't know there are really big boudaries, just general areas of the city. I shot both North and South from the Walnut Street Bridge. This view is North and the river wind west going past the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

woot, philly! Interesting perspective, would love to see the same shot but on a different day when the sky was more interesting.

The interracting diagonals look cool. Great contrast. A very clinical look with a lack of people/cars etc.

There are lines everywhere in this shot which makes it a great shot for the tilt. It clearly shows the horizon tilt and makes a very interesting shot

Great shot...the tall building on the left works well to offset the tilted angle.

Nice shot of 30th St. Station and I am glad that you spelled the name correctly.
