City Art

On this trip, I rapidly came to appreciate the quality of my new Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L lens. What an amazing piece of equipment!

I took two pictures of the famous San Antonio tower, but couldn't decide which picture I liked better, so I posted both of them. Opinions anyone?


Cities looks so much neater at night...

... see what I mean?

Trying out one of the basic heuristics (rules of thumb) of photography: Use strong lines.

Doesn't this picture make you feel dizzy?

I took it from the roof of a parking garage. And yes, the camera strap was FIRMLY around my neck. ;-)

Yes, cities are much more interesting to the eye when viewed after darkness has desended!

I like the second picture of the tower best.
