Hello,

Since some others have offered critiques, I will try my hand as well. I agree with some others about colors the exterior lighting. Personally, I would prefer less of a purplish bias to the exterior. This is not to say that a purplish cast is wrong for twilights, just that it seems a bit strong to me for this particular shot, with the lighting at hand.

As to the color of the interior light, which some have said is too yellow, I think maybe in this case it is too warm, and perhaps could be biased a bit more orange and less yellow. For a later, twilight, shot, I think it might be a different case. However, the colors for these kinds of shots can be rather subjective and don't necessarily have to be strictly what the eye would see in real life.

Also, I think this could have been shot later, which would have yielded a more dramatic effect (assuming that would be acceptable for the client). And, while I like the composition, I wonder what this would have looked like shot from a little further away. As it is, I find the scale (near-far) distortion a bit strong for something like this. However, maybe there wasn't enough room for other options?

Lastly, I would have added some light to those skylights on the left and maybe lightened up the upper windows to make them closer in brightness to the lower ones.

There is always things you can do, and nice suggestions....

Though, I don't think Simon was trying to show this as a "final" image . He was saying that it's 1 of a few locations. 
If you were to look at that image...Besides color the center can be distorted to sit flatter(convex), colors can be balanced etc.
But seeing Simon's work, he just put this up about the project. Either way, not a bad image.

These are not really professional works, but close to it.  

For the first two images, I shot part the interiors for a local architect this month who did a large renovation inside.  Being so, the exteriors were not a concern during the shoot and I had to get somewhere else to grab a dusk shot of another building they did on the campus.  So I went back later and took these for my portfolio.  

The last image is probably the coolest new building in Philly and is about 2 miles from where I live.  The architect is very loyal to Esto  >:(, so I am shooting this as personal project.  Problem with this building is that dusk is the best time to shoot, but there is only a 5 minute window, and with a CF & polarizer, you can not get more than one shot a night.  So I will be return a few more nights.  I know someone who works at the university too, so I am going to try and get interiors too.

I'm putting together some promo stuff for 2014 and asked my 9 year old to rate selections from the last 5 years.  I think he did a pretty good job picking the more impactful images!

Indeed!  All been said... excellent work.

I'd add, "Looking forward to seeing more" but with nudes that might be misconstrued.  ;)

Michael Ezra's nudes are always elegant and classy, in a league with Edward Weston's.

Hi,

I almost agree, but I feel that Michael is in a league of his own.

Best regards
Erik

I agree with that, too. But I feel that Edward and Michael each has produced the most sophisticated and classy nudes of their own time. Edward's were the best of the whole twentieth century, and Michael's certainly have a lock on the twenty-first, IMHO.

BC


Made my morning BC; now I can go and put in my daily eye-drops a happier man! As I then have to lie with my head back and eyes closed for ten minutes, it gives me better food for thought for those ten minutes than prosaic matters such as what the lunch choices will turn out to be...

It also proves that one is sometimes just as good company as two - if not more so. I'd have stopped at just below the pants - not mad about the leg shape, but maybe you were selling shoes?

Lovely shot, Kirk, and I wonder if anyone noticed just how vital the little clump of weed at the bottom left? Take it away and the entire balance is screwed. On such tiny things depend our visual lives!
