Don't you wish you could ban cell phones from your photos? They do work here as a juxtaposition, to that glorious building from the past when architectural detail reigned supreme. Oh, I miss the X1's qualities - thanks for this one, Christina! Very nice in black and white, too!

PDH, can I be dense :confused: and ask what the photo is? I don't mean why did you post it - I mean what is the subject. Did you toss a piece of giftwrap / material and snap it in mid-air? What is the shadow in the lower part of the photograph?

hehehe ... I think I'll keep you in suspense ... it's not really here for artistic merit, but the effect is fascinating isn't it?

Perhaps should have posted it in a new thread so as to invite interpretation otherwise this thread could get taken over by guessing games ... so I'll put you out of your misery ... it is a glass door, and someone has stuck a glass tile to it, and then later someone has tried to break it off, leaving this shard stuck forever ... the door is open against the wall, and there is light coming from the right (it may be reflected light, now I come to think of it, the positions are all wrong for direct sunlight at the time of day it was taken) ... you can probably work out for yourself what that odd shadow is now ...

Thanks - I couldn't figure out how the subject was casting a colored shadow as it looked opaque to me. As to the odd shadow, I'm glad it wasn't anything related to its similarity to certain appendages :eek:

I see ... by the way, remember that the lensaholic, like the alcoholic, is never recovered, but only ever in recovery ... just keep taking it one day at a time ...

That shadow looks like some kind of plant hanger to me...you know what I mean. I can't think of the right word.

Thanks for bringing this thread back up, pdh and thank you for putting us out of our misery...for those of us who couldn't quite figure out what was what or where.:wink:

Here are two from me, recently posted in other threads though I think they really belong here. I'd forgotten about this thread.
