Note to self: Spend more time looking.

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.

DSC_9401ar107 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.


About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
