|Fort Worth Museum of science & history. This wasn't my original idea for this challenge, but while I was here, I noticed the neat looking orange glow coming from these windows. It worked better in duotone than my original idea, which was ok, but looks much better in color. (Saving it for the freestudy) I picked up the orange color from the original image before converting it to greyscale. I actually liked the orange color of the original a little better, but was not able to bring that tonal range across into the duotone version. I still like the way it turned out. Ideally, I would like to remove those two windows at the bottom left, but I think that would be more selective editing than challenge rules would allow for.
Expecting to get creamed on this one, as abstracts tend to not do well on the popular appeal scale. If I get some good comments from the folks who like abstract photography, that will make a success out of it.
Did better than I expected it to, but it started in the low 4's. This was interesting as it climbed at a regular pace the whole challenge, making for a 45 degree angle on the chart.
Here's an alternate edit that I prefer, but done without any editing rules or challenge theme to comply with.
