Challenge: Circle IV (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2011 challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro

I'm so excited about the red on this! I'm very attached to this shot; there's something that really calls to me. Maybe it's because it's a special place -- Wren hall at the College of William and Mary. Perhaps it's because the glass is so old and warped that the lightpost looks warped.

I don't know -- but it's in my top 10 favorite shots, and I'm so happy that others liked it as well.

Thanks for the wonderful comments and votes!! :)

I keep coming back to look at this. I love the whole of it, Wendy, but especially love how the whole thing is obviously about a circle... but there are other shapes, too. Just so wonderful... *contented sigh*
