    Nice entry, cool shot and great story! thumb.gif
    Sorry about the hassle. rolleyes1.gif
    What is it, anyway? headscratch.gif A water tower, mebbe? Do you have any "conventional" shots of this structure?


    Yes it is indeed a water tower thumb.gif . I dont have a conventional shot of it at the moment, soon though maybe. The hassle was quite comical to me, i dont know what they were so worried about, im sure if i asked they would of said ok, its not like a person cant stand on the sidewalk and take pictures of it, I just wanted a better angle. I found out later that the building that the lady came from is some kind of water station (go figure lol). Im sure it must be owned by the city.
    Best regards,

    I guess they were afraid you'd poison the water supply by looking at it through the magic glass. Or, on a more serious note, that you were casing the joint and was going to plant the charges later... Mad world..ne_nau.gif

    Shot this sunday, 4-29-07. I was quite suprised when I was laying on the ground clicking away and here a voice behind me, "what are you doing?" I said Im taking pictures, she said why? I said why not? she said because this is private property. I said, oh well im sorry. Then she said were gonna hafta ask you to leave and took my name. I should of told her they should post it if they dont want anybody there. Theres parking spaces right in front of the thing, its in open grass no fences or signs or anything. Seems to me if they didnt want anybody there theyd post signs especially sense there is painted lines for parking right in front of it.
    mwink.gif Sounds like you were confronted by the local water tower nazi. I doubt she turned you in and if she did it's not likely the cops are paying much attention to her anyway.

    Great pic, though!

    I doubt it too, im not worried anyway, I happily gave her my name, it would be fun to see my name in the paper, busted for photographing the local water tower. lol

    And thank you!

    I went to get something out of my car this morning and my 2 year old son was with me. He kept saying "cow! Cow!" (his word for cloud) so I looked up and there was a rainbow over my head! I'm so glad he was with me, because I was feeling grumpy and not paying attention to the beautiful morning.

    I was remembering this assignment, yesterday late evening, in Lisbon.
    I was sorry that my tripod doesn't turn 90 degrees up. ne_nau.gif
    I didn't want to lay down on the floor because the light was too poor and I could not handle the camera.
    On the other hand, the ground is in stone, too cold and dirty for my taste to lay down... mwink.gif

    Fixed the link. Had it set to on my laptop instead of the WWW.ne_nau.gif

    As to PP. 100% Clarity and strong contrast curve in Lightroom.

    I'll play some more.
