Architectural Details: A Photography Workshop, Image No. 2

DSC_0049p-p
Above the front entrance of The Gregory Lofts in the Pearl District. Our instructor wanted us to look for details to photograph, using light and shadow and angles and shapes. I took the photo you see below and then when I uploaded it, I decided to rotate it using Picnik, hoping to enhance the architectural details.

Interesting what changing directions can accomplish.

And here's a photo of the entrance that I took from across the street as I waited to go into the meeting site for the workshop. I felt pretty good about noticing the architectural details all by myself, especially when the instructor pointed it out to us as a subject for our photographs.

Nice details. I like the art deco style.

Well done, Lynette. It would not have occurred to me to crop and rotate it as you did, but the result is great.
