The Building's Rib-Cage

Uploaded: February 01, 2008


Perfect Afternoon light against a blue sky. Building located Near Waikiki Hawaii. I walked up accross the street and framed it with my super sharp Nikkor 70-200 VR AF-S lens. I closed the apperture as much as I could for a hand held shot. I straighnted the perspective in PS CS2 and later I compressed the highlights with PS CS3. This photo is all about the elements and colors of the composition. I found them very pleasing although somewhat in the 1/3 of stop too dark in the exposure, I had to stop it down to avoid burning up the hightlights.

Exif: F Number: 8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/125 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 135.00 mm, Model: NIKON D2X
