Taken in Rundle Mall here in Adelaide, I walk under it every day going to work, took me 6 days of the competition time till it clicked.....duh!

3 images taken into aperture, then converted to 16 bit tiff's and run through photomatix for hdr conversion.

A few have commented on it not being straight, i did try that and some how it didn't look as alive......!

Love it.

Am I right - this is not glass? The way I read the shot we look straight at the sky with some shade sails?

Once I went through voting, I was able to determine this was your photo. You have a distinctive style. Congrats on the blue!

Congratulations on the blue ribbon. I thought it would be The One - it is so dynamic.
10/05/2009 03:02:38 AM
Well done Alan! I thought you would have me beat when you offered a score that was just a little higher than mine in the thread.

What I like most about this is that it has your stamp on it - clearly you have a style!

Great stuff!

very dramatic, well thought through. I agree with it looking better slightly off centre.
well done!

Wow thats in a mall.Thats amazing i love how the x really stands out and is lighter than everything els. i give you a 9 :)
10/02/2009 04:34:32 PM
Wow - I can't wait to read where this is at - great eye!
10/01/2009 07:49:47 PM
I really like the "pop" in this, and the "X" is very clear. The bottom-right building seems a little gray, but that's not really a flaw. I'd like it to be straighter, though. 9

Looks like a winner to me! Lovely job! (not voting)

Well executed, upward looking architectural image makes this look very Dougi555ish.

Having said that, I'm pretty sure he would've orientated it so that the lines were at 90 degrees to the image edge.

Great stuff though.
