    Sensational. Love the symmetry and pattern.
    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.

    Wow , that's a stunner Alex.
    Its the edge definition that does it for me.

    Just a thought. What do you think of it if it did not have the bottom row.
    The top half is the money shot to my eye, some of the glass area showing does help with content.

    I want to play with this by going back, tilt-shift in hand and make this wider, much wider. I'll probably leave the bottom row there as a loose feed in to the image.

    I want to get back when I have some time up my sleeve, so as to play with getting the repetition of the tightly packed awnings, possibly in a square image format and as you have suggested, without the loose ones down lower.

    This particular image is a recon. image, think of it as being like one of Walters polaroids, before the actual capture. it's not too bad for handheld, but I couldn't get the symmetry perfect down lower at this point on the building. On the other side of the building it was symmetrical, but with shadows on it, cast on an angle.

    I might have known you are already two steps ahead with exploring the image :)

    So many options when you dig deeper and deeper with that building.

    I've got a few re-shoots to catch up on myself. I bought some reliable transport this week and the old car will most likely end up at the wreckers.

    Nice recon image.
    Symmetry is nice but it's the shadows & highlights that capture my attention

    Thanks, DJT. It's the exploring this sort of thing, without reality being paramount that's got me by the short and curlies at the moment!
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.
