Michael D. Miller 4/26/2008 5:57:40 AM

I learn something new every day.
It must have taken Nikki a long time to paint that building before taking the picture, so that is a great tip and technique. I now carry 3 camera bags, one with my main equipment, one with my auxilliary equipment, and one bag of paint and brushes.

Very nice shot, composition and color.

West Hartford, CT #5843745

Christine Czernin level-classic 4/26/2008 6:05:18 AM

Nikki McDonald level-classic 4/26/2008 6:40:31 AM

WooHoo is right, Kitty! This is my first POTD here and I'm grinning ear to ear! Thank you all so much for taking the time to open and comment on this image--I love that it came in on a Saturday morning so I can really savor the "victory."

I usually do a little clean-up work and saturation increase on images before I post and this image is no exception; but this warehouse-sized building is really painted these unusual colors and, as you can see, sports many unusual architectural features. I have two other shots of the building in my gallery and many more in my archives--thought I'd work up one every other month or so until I ran out LOL

Thanks again, all.
