I saw your recent comment on Shelley's photo and decided to visit your gallery. Wow... a Finalist. I'm impressed. And, as I am partial to classical columns to begin with, this image is even more impressive. Great effects and austere composition.

Cheryl, do you know that this photo of yours and my Bay Bridge photo are together included in the BP's "Image of San Francisco"? I'm honored to be in the list with you!! #4901127

cheryl m. phillips 10/9/2007 7:42:12 AM

No! Really?? Where do you find that??
Very cool! Thank you for the info. Did I tell you that the day I took this was the day that they were all there filming that new show I am hooked on, The Journeyman? It was really fun to talk with the extras about this new show!
~cheryl #4902985

Alex T. Mizuno 10/9/2007 1:56:52 PM

It's here Cheryl: http://www.betterphoto.com/gallery/dynoGall2.asp?catID=400

Are you also in The Journeyman as an extra or as a photographer? #4903932

cheryl m. phillips 10/9/2007 3:20:13 PM

Oh,no no no... we just happened to be there while they were filming. I actually have a shot of the star of the show, although I had no idea who he was at the time... thanks for the info, Alex!

Matthew S. Gustke 1/5/2008 11:16:22 AM

I love your use of sepia in this picture. It adds some "age" to the pillars you took the picture of. Sepia doesn't work for everything, but it is definately working for this picture. Great shot :) #5296227

cheryl m. phillips 1/5/2008 4:11:48 PM

Hey Matthew!
Thank you for your comment on this one!
You are right about that effect, it does not work on everything...
Thanks for taking the time to let me know what you thought of this one!
