Tammy, Linda, Carla, Nicole, Evy and Chris... Thank you all for your comments. My three Citadel images fared pretty well for August.

Excellent composition and superb shot! Congrats on your POTD!!! The lone person is the icing on the cake in this image!!! #2010812

Paul Conlan October 29, 2005

Thank you all for you congratulations and comments. I'm very please that you like the photo. The Citadel barracks are great photo venues when you can gain access to them. I agree with your comment Wendy regarding the lone person. It worked out great and was un-posed. Actually, there were scores of people around and it worked out perfectly that only one was in the photo. If you'd like to see other photos from The Citadel and the barracks you can check out Gallery L - Charleston/The Citadel on my website: Thank you all again and best wishes!

October 29, 2005

Paul, I think this beautifully composed photograph would have been just so-so if not for the figure in the middle opening. If you planned this congratulations on being so patient. If you just happened to catch the figure standing there, congratulations on seeing what made this good photo stand out, and be even better. #2011213

Paul Conlan October 29, 2005

Thank you for all the recent comments. FYI... I didn't pose the photo (rarely do) but did recognize the opportunity as the young man appeared. If you've not seen the photos with the red and white checkerboard barracks courtyard which obviously doesn't appear in this photo... check out the Citadel gallery at my website (see my previous comment). Best wishes... and thanks again. #2011806

Is this a photograph or a rendering? #2019671

Paul Conlan October 31, 2005

Avis... Thank you for your comment. Glad you like the image. Juli... I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a "rendering" but it is definitely a photograph. I did some minor adjustments in PS8 and sharpened in LVP as the last step. That's it. #2019922
