This is the museum in Clarksville, Tennessee. I don't know much about the building, besides that it's beautiful! It's almost impossible to get a good shot of the whole building with all the other buildings, wires, signs, etc. in the way. This was taken from an adjacent parking garage roof. I used Picture Cooler to reduce the noise (lots of it, I believe caused by the 12 second shutter speed). Other than that I just adjusted the brightness, contrast, and saturation.

Ray, this is really nice. I had never really noticed it before. It has been a while since I looked at your portfolio because of all the downs in my life but I'm catching up with DPC stuff today. You really have an eye for architecture!

You've got some hot pixles there man, might wanna try to use some noise reduction or something. Still an 8 by me, well composed shot, plus nice lighting.

this photo touches on one of my favorite things to photograph and you have done it quite well. the only thing i can comment on here is that the different buildings on the outside edges might have been taken out to give a more fluid feel

Amazing building, would be ideal if it was centered. Great pic anyway.

House of the 27 Gables...would have loved with a higher contrast night sky, but still nice

beautiful symmetry! I like the shot, I think it would be MUCH more effective with a touch more dark. Nice work though. 7

nice night sky but I feel like I need to see more ot the building.

I so much like this one. Very interesting subject and good composition. You've managed to create a solid and appealing image. The only thing I have to point out is that it seems to need a slight rotation to the right and perhaps a little crop on the left side. Anyway, good job. 8

That's quite a roof! Composition seems a bit unimaginative though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:28:54 PM
good eye. I think i'd have cropped it a little different. could be sharper.

Pretty neat shot. I'm sure you will get a few comments about it being dead center. It would be improved by better composition, but I wasn't there to see the obstacles you faced.

Lovely capture of stars and clarity of design on this roofline. I like the composition.
