Nope, no "brushing". I added my post processing steps to the photo description.

People wanted to see the entire building, so I posted a shot I took a year ago below. The photo I submitted was taken during the challenge dates.

Bryan, CONGRATULATIONS on your first yellow ribbon! This is an amazing picture and I'm so happy it won a ribbon!!! It is so sharp, and the colors are so contrasting it looks 3-dimensional!

Excellent job!!!

This was my favorite of the challenge. Good job on your yellow ribbon finish!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 10:56:54 AM
Great, stark, simple image. The E really looks trapped in that roofline. This is, I think, the image in the challenge that most screams "this is a photo of an accidental letter"!

Thank you, Dana, and thanks for the comment left on my self portrait. I really didn't expect this photo to do so well. I went to the park and took a ton of nature shots, but wasn't impressed with any of them. Then I drove downtown to look for some "letters" around the capital and I took "bluE-grEEn" right after I stepped out of the car. And that was it, didn't even walk over to the capital.

Here's a photo of the building I took a year ago. The building is located right across the street from the state capital in Sacramento, CA.

Neat kind of abstract picture. The negative space is nice.

I like this very much...like the purity and simplicity of it. Nice composition.

The colors and image of E are good..I like it, it's interesting and starkly effective..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 04:35:11 PM
Didn't care for this at first, but the more I see it the better I like it. I like the color saturation and the contrast between building (?) and sky. Very clean and simple lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 03:13:51 PM
Amazing shot! This is definitely one of my favourites. Plain and simple, great quality and definition. Perfect in every aspect. Congratulations (obviously 10).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 02:40:48 PM
I love the simplicity of this image. If you had cropped off about half of the blue sky, I think it would have workd better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2005 02:03:30 PM
i love these colors

Easily the most flawless image in this challenge, and an extraordinarilu striking one. I appreciate the seeing that went into finding this, and the purity of the colors, lighting & composition.

Like your use of color. Composition using negative space is excellent. Sharp focus. See the "E". This image should place high in this contest.
