    If you've got a 'Urban/Buildings' shot that was taken outside the August 2006 Assignment thread period (7-31 Aug 06), post it in this thread.

    If it was posted, in that time period, post it in the Assignment thread.

    Must admit to having a tough time choosing a 'building' picture to go in here... there are so many although all express something other than Urban...

    Thank you. But the last pic is from Cleveland;)

    Oh no... I've tried using HDR but I always seem to get better results using Ansel Adam's method :cool:

    ...dodge and burn...

    Okay. I used the Canon 24mm tilt/shift lens. Stitched 2 or 3 pics together. Dodge, burned sharpened, dropped in sky.

    Nice shot Abstract, where is it from?

    Looks like the arm of Unicron.

    How's a tilt-shift work? I saw those on Canon's site, but I've not heard much about them.

    Shifting is easy to understand. When the lens is mounted on a camera, it's centralised: the framing of the picture centres the image on the sensor. By shifting the lens, you shift the part of the picture that is on the sensor. This allows you to take a full-frame shot of (say) a building, with the camera pointed directly at the object; normally, such a shooting direction would leave you with a lot of ground at the bottom of the picture, and the building in the top half. By shifting, you can get just the building, thereby getting the lines of the building in their "proper" perspective.

    It might help if you think of the lens as casting a larger than usual image circle, and you're deliberately choosing the part of the picture to crop, before it even hits the sensor.

    As for tilt: I don't know how it works, but I can tell you the effect: you can take a shot of (for example) a railway line, with the rails stretching out into the distance in perfect focus, with everything else above and below the lines being increasingly out of focus.

    It'd be cool to learn exactly how the "tilt" part of the tilt-shift lens works, but I suspect the maths would really play merry hell with my brain.

    I'd like to get my hands on a TS-E to play around with it, but I doubt I could justify the cost. Trippy lens; the only thing to remember is that they're manual focus only.

    That is a beautiful picture. Any chance I could get a high res one to use as a background :eek:

    Ok, here's another 2 photos. I actually wanted to post another one because I think it's better, but since I posted it in Picture of the Day, I thought I'd post 2 other ones.

    The first photo is more stairs. The one I posted in Picture of the Day is better, but I like this one more. The reason this one isn't my favourite is because of those 3 shadowy lines at the bottom of the photo, which sort of ruins things.

    The other is of one of the buildings in an area with lots of big tall buildings.


    Looks like? :confused:

    ^^ Looking good, Abstract, I like both of these.

    For my contribution, I thought I'd share some pictures from the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao taken in July. The first two are 'detail' kinds of shots, the third is a larger view of the building. Just an amazing design here, I'd love to see some more-artistic-than-me person's interpretation of it.

    I like this one. The Swiss Re "Gherkin" building in London on a very sunny July day. Stunning building.

    Cropped to suit my new MacBook. :)
