    I enjoy seeing these types of photos, everyday sights. I was also caught by the fact that you used the 75-300 lens. Is it an IS? I'm looking to get the same and hope you could share your feelings about it.

I love the composition and light and shadow play in this daily life abstract.

Every time I see a wonderful shot like this it makes me wonder how many I've overlooked just because I wasn't paying attention. Great eye, Paul.

Great shot! I really like how the red stands out and makes the stairway more visible behind the glass.

Thanks everyone. Currently I only have the standard 75-300 f4-5.6 lens. But as my work flow increases I'll be getting the IS lens. I have heard good reports on this lens, but the IS is only on the horizontal plane from what I gather.

As far as getting this shot I was wandering around downtown Rockford on a shoot for a web designer. I looked up and saw the stairs on the side of a parking garage of all places. So I took 3 shots and later that night I was looking back thru and it began to grow on me. Now I have it matted with a maroon border that matches the railing color. it really enhances the whole photo and decided it needed to be in my portfolio.

Great site, love to look thru all the photos and ideas everyone has.

Great shot! I have been using the Canon 75-300 IS lense for about 4 years and it has allowed me to get great, I think(!) shots of birds flying overhead, etc. both with and without a tripod. A few times, in very strong wind out at Pt. Reyes Nat'l Seashore in CA, it allowed me to get shots of scenery that others in the group without the benefit of IS lenses could not get. So, it is definitely worth the money!

Very interesting pattern shot ... you captured that kind of image that is among of us in the big cities all the time and just a trained photographer eye can see its secret beauty. Very good.
