    So sorry, ..... not a landscape shot!

    I visited the Walt Disney Concert Hall last Saturday morning. I discovered if you are there during the tour hours, you can get higher up in the building. There are some interesting scenes up there. There is also a one acre outside garden! Seriously! You would never know from looking at the building at street level.

    I like this image that is a narrow area between two of the large architectural Frank Gehry designed panels. Mr. Fox was given a preview of this image before its release to the general public. The image was shot as a vertical. He likes it better rotated 90 degrees left. I'm not sure about that. What do you think?

    Almost a dizzying perspective in the second image. Fun architecture and you did a nice job with the light. I like the first one more since I still feel upright viewing it :)

    Ha ha, well... I think #2 is awesome Tex! I think the dizzy aspect from it being sideways really is super creative on the part of whoever suggested that to you... :rolleyes:

    Neat surprise, I was expecting the Narrows in Zion park. I also prefer the first one.
