Front of House

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/80, Aperture: f/5,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: Square x2,
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 15th November 2006, 4:32pm,

I walk past this disused car park every day and I've never thought to try to make a picture out of this scene before.

I think the reason I decided to photograph it on this occasion was a combination of the gloomy light (which I love) and the fact that I recently looked at some of Kiran Master's work and loved what he was doing with nature in his photos.

There is also perhaps a third influence at work here as well. One of the things David and I noticed last weekend was that a lot of the photos we saw in galleries were impressive but that you wouldn't necessarily look twice if you were to see them on a blog.

I think that making photos look interesting on screen and making photos that look interesting when printed large are two different things and I've tried to do the latter here, so it probably doesn't stand out too much on a blog but I'm quite happy with it.

Looks like there would be some great abstracts to be had of the car park floor. Not sure about the tilt on the one on the left but I think the one on the right works well. I to like the gloomy light of these.

Not doing anything for me here this at all, why the wonky horizon on the left shot Jamey out of interest, you seen this done someplace else and it has an attraction for you?

The right image is the stronger one for me due in part, I think, to the lower viewpoint - all those textures are right there upfront and seem crisper. But that's merely technicalities - the left image jars no doubt due to the tilt but I like that - it's made me look at it longer.
