Architectural Details: A Photography Workshop, Image No. 4

Brickwork on the Patagonia clothing store, 907 NW Irving, Pearl District, Portland, Oregon. Naturally you're aware that he wanted us to pay attention to architectural details like these various brick patterns, especially in conjunction with the concrete blocks and the metal piece. This particular images has been changed at Picnik, an online photo-altering site, with Focal Zoom, then CinemaScope. I also checked Letterbox my photo.

Here it is, HDR-ish, courtesy of Picnik. You can see the concrete blocks and the metal piece much better in this version of the photo.

And here it is, merely straightened at Picnik.

Very clever, Lynette. This is a workshop I would have liked.

I like version #2 the best.

These are neat. I've tried the first one by using a slow shutter speed and zooming the lens out while I'm photographing, but it doesn't come out as even as this.

I have to agree, I do like that second shot!
