Last week, we went to Orlando to see Cirque de Soleil. Sorry, photography not permitted so you won’t see anything from that fabulous show.
But, I did look out my hotel window and see the usual highly reflective building and couldn’t resist a few shots even if they aren’t particularly special. This is the original view as I started doing a bit of post processing.
I kind of like this one because it reflected a windowless side as something of a solid while the balcony sides looked like some special effect digital destruction. But, I didn’t need the industrial components at the bottom or the trees on the right. So I decided on something of a square crop to focus on the part I first saw.
That’s a pretty good shot of what I thought I was looking at. But, then I noticed another element that I hadn’t seen while shooting and which I could have done a lot better job of exposing and cropping. The flight of outside stairs on the left which actually went several stories higher. So, I cropped them into a bookmark and liked the slight difference in each cell as the angle of view changed. Had I seen it taking the shot I think I could have done more with it. Here it is rotated 90 degrees. I still see some subtle shading in there that could have been fun to play with.
