[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have not posted for a while, had PC problems, last Sunday I was at a Swearing in ceremony for a City Councilman friend, when I left I had to take this shot. I wanted to be as crazy as the dramatic architecture by Richard Meier, so I tilted the lens, I shot the event without a flash just increased the ISO, as with the 5DII noise is not a critical issue. I forgot to lower the ISO when I left, but I like the result. ..I took three shots just before sunset and merged in PS CS6 HDR. Enjoy

Hi Vic.

The light and tones through the glass roof are attractive,I can see why this appealed. The tilt adds something too, we have a theme of tilt in the Scavenger Hunt too. Neat job.

Stv ;0))

Ciao Vic, great POV on fantastic architecture, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Vic
good POV interesting perspective. good capture of interior structures. fine PP work. clear and sharp details. nice colors.

Bonjour Vic
Richard Meier is a great architect whose work I met first in the Getty Center in Los Angeles (not to be mingled with Oscar Niemeyer, the architect of Brasilia)and I liked it , and also here.
The tilted presentation gives an unconventional look in order to follow the Master's originality.It works not so bad

Hi,I like the tilt it makes the image more dynamic.Sharpness and color is excellent.Interesting architecture well presented.All the best,Otto.
