Welcome back from the holiday.

The topic for this Mini Challenge is: Architectural Elements.

I want to see photos of pieces of buildings and structures...windows, railings, corners, roofs, doors, hallways, stairs, etc. I don't want to see any whole buildings.

At least one of the three images that you submit should be from your home or workplace.

This mini challenge is open for 10 days until 11:00PM EST on January 5, 2012

    1. A view of the dome of our nation's Capitol

    2. A portion of the painting in the top of the Capitol Dome. I shot this with a Canon Powershot SX-30 zoomed all the way to 800mm.
    IMG0179-L.jpg

    2b & c. These two are to show perspective of how much zoom...the first is a view of the Capitol Rotunda--just to show how big it is. The second is as much of the dome as I could get into the frame of my camera. :D

    Paul,

    Very cool b&w conversion! This is one of my favorite places to shoot architecture. So much to see... I tend to spend more time outside than inside when I visit...

    Thanks Bill!
    Getty, Disney, and Annenberg are my trifecta when I need to be inspired.

    Getty is equally as dynamic inside:

    Anyone can play Jenn, as long as they are a member of DGrin.
    Photos do not have to be fresh. Previous images on your hard drive are fine.

    Have a happy new year!

    Great! NOW, your next stop should be the Annenberg. The Digital Darkroom is the exhibit. I'm hoping to get there this weekend.
    No cameras in the Century Tower (bummer because that lobby is GORGEOUS!) or in 'The Space', but outside is allowed.
    The bench area at the entrance is a favorite of mine.

    Not that mine are any better than any of the other awesome entries, but these are just to show off for the thread and are not to be considered when deciding a winner! I just do not have the time to run a mini challenge through its course if you were to choose one of these. This theme is just up my alley with what I really love to take pics of. I have pics from all over the world of buildings! (well almost all over..lol). Thanks.

    There are some very good submissions, but Tinamarie's mandate specifies
    "At least one of the three images that you submit should be from your home or workplace."
    That requirement seems to be missing in many of the groups of three unless the
    submitters live or work in some very odd places.

    There are times when I feel I live in an ancient ruin, but not one quite as grand
    as those pictured here.

    There are some great entries here!

    Tony is right...I did ask for at least one image to be from your home or workplace. The point was for you to see architectural elements in a variety of ways. We don't often think of our homes as places of architecture. Although we all share the bond of photography, we all come from such different backgrounds and locales. I thought it would be fun to share something about where we dwell!

    Just a reminder, this mini closes on Thursday at 11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time..... 8 PM for those of you on the west coast.

    I will try to post results within 24 hours.

    Keep them coming!
