Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III

There is a lot going on here:  bright colors, reflections of buildings and of clouds, the see-though to the back window, the decorations in the window and the black shutter hardware standing out so nicely against the painted shutters.  I just couldn’t ignore this scene.

For the photo geeks:  I really like to shoot scenes like this with nice square and plumb lines.  And I did that.  But when I did I lost the reflections of the clouds in the top half of the window.  So to keep them in the scene I shot this obviously distorted version, too.  This is by far the better photo, distortion be damned.

  1. So much going on and yet it all fits!

  2. Agreed. And we have a sense of the height of the building.
