I swore I wouldn't enter anything except Free Studies for awhile... but hey, had a great day out shooting with 21_F.gif tamatama (Susanne) at the nifty new mall in Frankfurt, which by my standards counts as very unusual. Absolutely incredible architecture and very cool light in lots of places.

Topaz'd (no, really!) with the Dramatic preset, and cropped. That's about it.

Post challenge: Woo hoo! A star! I'm freakin' delighted!

Congrats on top 5! A very nice angle, although I think I like the B&W option even better.

Go back there for the architecture challenge. :)

Another master piece, and a top 5 you are on a roll, congratulations, I really like the perspective of the glass tower in the middle.

Congrats on the star shot Deb!!!

This is a fine example of how great composition will allow a photograph to hold our eye.

I love the way the tower guides my eye through the shot

Well done and once again congrats on a high finish

You're on a roll girl! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the architecture challenge.

WOW, DEB! This is so FANTASTIC! I suspect we'll be seeing a ribbon for you in the architecture challenge. I hope so -- it would be well deserved if you got another one (which I see you DID) half as good as this! I so love the people in this. It adds to the sense of scale of that phenomenal place. Your lighting is absolutely exquisite!
