Thanks everyone for voting for this shot. I appreciate your support.

This picture was taken below a walkway that connects four corners and buildings in downtown Houston, Texas.

I had to lay down on the sidewalk to ge this shot, who knows what I contracted.

The tall builing you see in this shot is the building that belonged to the company formely known as ENRON. ;)

There was as similar shot I took of this walkway that was disqualified.

The sides are from opposite sides under the same walkway.

Thanks again.
Jaime

Great picture of the old Enron buildings. I pass this walk through all the time but never thought to take a picture from below. It's a very creative point of view. Congrats on your ribbon!

Great shot Jaime, but what pisses me off is that I work in this building and walk the skyloop everyday and didn't think to shoot it for the Framing challenge. :)

Congrats on the ribbon.

Nice one. I thought of your DQ shot and it occurred to me it'd fit the bill precisely. Didn't see it in voting though. Congrats :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hey, good job not letting the DQ on the other shot get you down. And this time it fit the challenge so well, you got the blue instead of the yellow!
