Thomasa

Thanks Murry! I am really happy with how this one turned out.

Looks like part of my comment got cut off in the description. It was just luck that the section I chose had red cars in it. I didn't even realize it until I got home and looked at the photos. #94130

Not only is this a great display of repitition and perspective, but I agree with Murry that it's a strong social/cultural statement! Very well shot and modified also! Congratulations, Thomasa! #118638

Description

I have driven past the houses several times and really wanted to get a good shot of them. I was intrigued by their strong pattern. Image taken with a Canon EOD D60. F-stop 5.6 at 1/1500 sec. ISO 100. First I cropped the image in PhotoShop to reduce some of the clutter and distractions. The sky was dull, so it was altered in PhotoShop as well. The last car in line was changed to red to help strengthen the repetition pattern going on in the image. Although it was just luck, that I chose a section
