Wish I could do that, Craig; probably find myself a new career in yacht brokerage. Plenty of big boats around the Med, but my eyes popped when I saw the ones tied up at Abu Dhabi yesterday as I watched the F1 race on tv. I'd thought Monaco was something else.

as above. i use the AOP standard forms slightly modified.
watertight paperwork has saved my bacon many times, when clients have gone into liquidation or or accounts have moved etc.

Those are really nice and you are lucky you got them in 2006. Lots of the pines are gone or dead due to a bug infection.  Even Rockey Mountain National Park looks pretty bad these days.

I have a new article in NM Magazine in the November issue on one of my favorite subjects-the history of architecture in New Mexico.
Virgin Galactic Spaceport-Foster and Partners Architects London.

Me too - I believe it'd be awesome in some exaggerated B/W conversion too.

Kirk, is that Sun in the right place? Something in the shadows bugs me. Whatever, a very effective, simple and strong image.

From the lowness of the sun, you'd expect the shadows to be longer, but no... if you draw a line from the sun to the shadow, they're exactly right, no Hocus Pocus going on, which I wouldn't expect from Kurt anyway...

Optical illusion

Awesome shot Mr. G.

Why ever not? It's professional photography: it's the result that counts, not a declaration on the Bible or the peace of mind of another snapper!

I'm not saying there's anything wrong at all with image manipulation, Rob.  Hell, my own images have little regard for reality.  I've always felt like Kurt's work (in particular) has always been more about capturing the best moment.

Edit:  Kirk.  Way too little sleep!

The shadows on the left side look infinitesimally longer than the shadows on the right side...which could well be the reality if there's variation in the height of the burm.

I agree that this could make a great B&W photo. Nice work, Kirk (or is it Kurt?)   ;-)

Thanks all. That was a tough shoot. It took months to get access with numerous postponements. Only the shell is finished and they haven't moved in yet. I'm shooting editorial but how do I make this sexy? Only get a couple of hours at most with strict security escort. We get there and the light SUCKS big time-flat and lifeless. So I am trying odd angles with my Canon 24 LII T/S and the results look hokey so I decide to shoot this shot straight into sun. It has potential but I am already stressed and fried and feeling like I haven't accomplished much. So I line this shot up and it doesn't feel right. But no matter where I stand and frame it it doesn't feel right. Just looking at it seems ok even thought the construction is wanky and nothing is perfectly level or lined up. I can tell the escort and my writer are getting impatient. We are running out of time and I haven't even been inside yet to see if there is anything potential in the unfinished shell. So I shoot the shot and a few slight variations and figure I'll work on fine tuning the alignments and leveling in PS. But a couple shots later when I am completely on the other side of this huge complex I realize a big part of the "feeling" wrong problem was that I had the lens shifted slightly to the left from an earlier shot.............totally amateur mistake. Too late to go back and reshoot it as the the sun would have moved. So I work on it in PS-never feels 100% right between my shifted lens, the slight distortion in this lens anyway when it is shifted and the wanky construction, but I think the image is strong enough to override the slightly "off" feel.

Ironically this is the only place I have posted it where anyone caught anything. You guys are the best. Tough audience. :)

I think it's a really nice shot considering the conditions. Since you're open to some nitpicking - It feels off to me because it's tilted a wee bit to the right. Rotate the image counter-clockwise about .5 of a degree and it will look more even.

yes that helps. Though it still doesn't quite "feel" right then either.
