Date: Jul 7, 2009
Aperture: f/7.1

Disappointed with the quality yet again- had to save this at 58% quality to cut it down to the 150k requirement, which reduced sharpness =(

Anyway, today I realized that I hadn't taken anything for this challenge. My hope was to take an above the head shot of a tennis serve, but I couldn't figure out the logistics. So instead, I ventured over to the 49th floor (observation deck) of the Carew Tower in Cincinnati. Fountain Square sits kitty corner to the tower, and the chessboards and colorful umbrellas caught my eye.

I gave this a ten. It is a perfect example of the theme

nope no stretching- posted that question because i wanted to make the lines straight up and down, but i guess the diagonal worked out for the best (had to rotate it some, as the initial angle was closer to up and down)

Congrats on the top 10, very nice vibrant image. Obviously you didn't need to stretch the perspective (or did you?)
