It's all in how you look at it.

DSC_0524p
Big Pink and a parking lot sign. The sign is on the southeast corner of SW Broadway and West Burnside. Big Pink is exactly one block east of the sign. I used the tilt feature of my camera so that I could take a satisfactory look from this unusual angle. I've cropped the photo and used the HDR-ish special effect at Picnik. By the way, Big Pink is either 536 or 546 feet tall and is the second tallest building in Portland. I found both heights on the Internet, so who knows. I do know I've been on the 30th floor, which is not the top floor, to the Portland City Grill. See views from the PCG here and here.

Interesting processing. It really jumps off the page at me.

I like the angle, Lynette. The building should use your shot for their promotional materials.

Awesome shot. I am really starting to like the HDR technique.

Great perspective. I like that the background is the building but it's the first thing that I look at and that the foreground is the sign and it's the last thing that I see. Very unique indeed!
