    I've had a look at that 2nd one a couple of times now & it's doing my head in. In a cool way.
    1st has fantastic shapes all the way down to the bottom section

    Love the last one Doug.
    but the second is 10 foot the wrong way to the left for me (there must have been a reason , OCD and all! )
    :)

    the first is geometrically sweet and screams Education Dept 80's (even though it prob isn't)

    but that last is cool.
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    Thanks David.
    The second one I pictured 180 degrees to what you see here.
    Since I was flat on my back on the pavement looking straight up it doesn't really have what could be called a right way up.
    I went with this because I thought it added an interesting and slightly unsettling amount of weight to the top of the image.

    This also explains Edens "10 foot the wrong way" observation.
    In the series of pictures I took, centreing the reflection in the curved glass was the goal, but flip the image and the groove in the other building grabs far more attention.

    One to do again I think.
    I'm thinking the empty void works best for this one, rather than a day with clouds.

    Will do the first one again also with the tripod and live view to get the angle left/right the same.

    I do wonder sometimes if you can over sanitize an image and the subject (even if it suits it) gets lost in a graphic design exercise.
    Only one way to find out I suppose, try both.

    I can imagine a bit of chaos amongst the order of the last one appealing to your eye. :)

    "the first is geometrically sweet and screams Education Dept 80's"
    It can be a fine line with this style of building, but for me this ones a good'in.

    I'm with you on the "do the rules really matter" type question

    and It was by no means a
    "it should have been"

    but a

    "Why did you not do the norm" moment for me


    My shot in the Broken Hill pub was not my norm but I had to do it as it might not ever be there again and for some strange reason I loved the stupid setting as it was,,, weird hey! ( I even had to settle for the bloody phone )

    anyhow I have a nice warm tripod cover sitting here looking for an excuse to go home!
