Also taken at a local mall here in town. They seems to have interesting architecture and interesing ceilings to shoot. I slightly cropped and adjusted a contrast a bit. Otherwise basically as is.

I hope the people who vote and leave comments can find the leading lines and understand their purpose.

your architecture shots are very strong, in fact all they do is kick ass! :)

Initial thoughts
Lovely symmetry and quality of light

Composition/ Content
A beautiful and simple composition. I love the way it has symmetry from left to right but not from top to bottom.
The curving roof lines are beautiful and I particularly like the way the central “beam” cuts the image in half top to bottom.
The grey lines at the left and right lead the eye directly to the window itself.
The blues and clouds of the window are the focus of the image and all the lines serve to emphasise this.

Camera Work - Technical
Exposure is wonderful – I love the way you’ve got the blues and whites of the sky just right and yet also achieved that ethereal light through the ceiling itself.

Digital Processing - Technical
Can’t see any problems – all looks great to me.

Any negatives?
Not that you could have done a thing about this but I find the dark shadows beneath the grey coving on the left a bit distracting. Because the dark line they create is so much wider than the lines of interest my focus tends to be pulled to the left a little. In an ideal world there would be a second grey sheet covering this as there is on the right. As I said, I am mentioning this only to be complete in my own assessment – I appreciate fully that a) you couldn’t change this and b) the image is still absolutely wonderful and successful regardless.

Fits The Challenge
Very much so.

My Opinion On The Photo
I really like this. I enjoy looking at it. The curves, the blue sky and the ghostly quality of the light coming through the ceiling make it a very appealing image.

This one is great - the blue is the pay-off and great leading lines. A well deserved win.

Excellent shot, an outstanding example of leading lines. Congrats on the win! (It's always great to see a fellow S30 user fare well... these little cameras rock!)

Very nice perspective shot. The touch of color is a good touch.
I'm back to say, this is one of my top 3 for the week! Good luck!

Lovely - and does a really weird 'shrinking' effect if you scroll up and down in the browser... The splash of blue really sets this off

Great shot! My 9 of the week! The desaturation enhances the leading lines to theblue sky. One thing I would change since the side walls aren't symetrical is the cropping. I would crop it more to either side because right now is has an unnatural "unbalance". :-)

Nice job! Neat transformation of white to blue. I like this a lot.

Great architectural photo. draws your eye right down to the blue sky in the window

Nicely done. Well composed and good use of lines to lead to the blue sky and clouds.

This definately makes use of the "leading lines" concept. Nice image, good exposure, a focal point the grabs the eye BECAUSE of the leading lines. Nice job!

03/05/2003 03:53:46 PM
the lines for sure lead the eye to the color and window ... great job

Challenge well met. Would be better without distracting lines at center left.

This meets the challenge, but would like a better subject to look at to get a 10 from me. I give you a vote of 7. Good luck. This is a great picture!

TOP SHOT - Excellent leading lines photo and great perspective as well. You certainly have an eye for this. I like how the lines leading to the end is all the same colour and the blue at the end really stands out. Again an excellent shot which deserves a 10. Well done.

Well executed. Definitely satisfies the theme. The blue sky really helps to draw the viewers eye from the leading lines to the subject.

Great pic!!!!

One of my favourites this week. Great composition. I tried it in b&w but it wasn´t any good. Perfect focus and colours. Overall a very interesting shot that gets high score from me. Well done and good luck.

one of my top pics--gorgeous lines, leading to a beautiful sky! i love the contrasts of greys and blue. my only wish is that you could have somehow been able to get higher to crop out the bottom left and right of the frame (walls and doors) to make the lines flow more smoothly, but no big deal. i also really like the curvy reflections running down the left side--great capture!

This is good! You've got leading lines coming in from all directions, and the compostion is perfect. The only thing I am missing is a main subject to which those lines lead. 8

Cool shot, I love the way all the lines lead to the sky. Good lighting, and a nice, clear, sharp image. Centered composition is very effective.

Ooh, this is really nice. Great use of challenge topic, not only do the line emphasize your focal point, but the color contrasting with the neutral parts of the photo really are great. 10
