      Thanks, Linda. I had a little time before a concert and I just wandered around the area. They break every rule about lighting at that time of day, so I was happy with the results. I guess rules are made to be broken.

      Thanks, Howard. These buildings were built in the early 1900s but are all in good service today. Some started out as warehouses and are now office buildings.

    The compositions are wonderful, Ken! In the first one, the sliver of deep blue sky and the squeezed effect of the other building are great. The negative space in the second one is perfectperfectperfect. The odd bits showing in odd places in the fourth – I love that. Altogether this would be a terrific composition lesson, or just a lesson in seeing with fresh eyes, as they say.

      Thanks, Lynn. Years ago, I shot some buildings similar to these with a PC lens and got very good results. I’ve since sold that lens because I was shooting 90% nature shots and never took it out of the backpack. It would be nice to have but I don’t think (for me) that it would be worth the expense to purchase another. One shot here has the Times Building in the lower right with the “Wings of Progress” at the top. I have a fairly good shot of the “Wings” that I posted earlier. I’ll try to dig it up and repost it.

        I’ve never used a PC lens – I had to look it up – I saw it’s the same as tilt shift, basically, which I’ve only read about. There, you see, I am quite a photographic innocent. 🙂 And I’m not sure how these photos would be different – I guess the tilting or distortion would be gone. But you used it to such great advantage here! Naturally since I like these, I’m all for you taking architectural or street photos with whatever lens you have on the camera. Looking forward to seeing more!
