Photographers Notes
During Photoshop World in Las Vegas this week, I took time out to shoot the Ruvo Brain Institute – an out patient treatment center for Alzheimer’s victims. Looking at it you might think the patients designed the building but it was actually designed by Frank Gehry.

Photoshop World was a blast. Adding up the registration, food, lodging and airfare, it's about a USD 2,500 event, but worth it for its entertainment value and what I learned about Photoshop.

I'm reviewing this challenge a second time after considering what the s-curve technique is really supposed to be. That is a compositional technique used to lead the viewer into the image. Though it's very curvy, I'm not totally sure if there is an eye leading s-curve in here. I find my eye actually being led in a fairly straight line up to to the second level of the foreground structure. (Curse me as a DPC nitpicker, if you like.)

Nice pic, but the S-curve is not clear to me, sorry .

Hmmmm I'm trying not to be literal, but I don't see an S Curve here. :)

Awesome photo. The contrast is amazing. Can't wait to see where this is.
