Dome Study I

Thanks for all the positive comments on yesterday's shot, they are much appreciated.  I no longer have the flexibility to send a quick reply as they arrive which means they tend to stack up for when I get home...and then there is never enough time.  I'll reply now and again when I can.

This is a bit of an experiment today.  I was going to post an entirely different shot but then I noticed something and decided to heavily crop the shot.  At the time of taking it I was, let's say, encouraged to stop taking pictures as I was "clearly taking them for professional purposes"...I suppose I should take that as a compliment?!

I look forward to hearing what you think about this...

Sincerely Simon, I believe that this pic does not make justice to your habitual work. There are many lines, but no goes nowhere. There are parallel lines, but there is something does not cause that he is pleasant to watch. The colors are saturated in excess. The composition does not transmit anything. The eyes when they watch this, only aim at vertice in the first plane. I believe that you have not known to take advantage of the characteristics the new template. I think that you are not satisfied with this work. Hazme to know your commentaries, please. Best regards, my friend. smile

The crop is drastic, which perhaps affects the clarity, but the angles are certainly interesting.
I like this very much. Geometry and abstraction. Excellent. All the best, Dave.

Very cool, very different. Makes you look twice... three times.... I'd have this on my wall, simply because people would ask questions! Cheers, H.

Being encouraged to stop taking pictures because you are clearly taking them for professional purposes. What is the world coming to?

There was a discussion going on last year sometime. My personal conclusion is that the moment you start using a tripod and/or lighting equipment, you are considered to be professional.

If those opinionated people are professionals, then you can take it as a compliment.

I believe that things in the public domain can become subjects of my camera. It may be that the other guy has a bigger stick, more muscles, or worse - in that case I can be temporarily convinced smile

Just do not think that the insides of a shopping mall is public domain - they have little signs at the entrances.

Just a couple of thoughts.
BeakerSt: Thanks Louis, I agree with you entirely, in this case he was simply 'following orders'...but he had a walkie talkie...and used it!
