Oh Canada

So… I finally got out to take some pictures (its been over a month) and this is the first shot I felt was good enough to upload. While I am on the road, I dont have access to my normal post software and hardware, so I will re-edit this one when I get home.

Comments are always welcome.

Taken near UBC in Vancouver –  Nikon D700 28-70mm

Personally the much larger image looks better. I think this looks terrible reduced as its too small. There is a lot of detail that is lost in the reduction.

This is a 5 second eposure behind a ND filter (8) and a Graduated ND filter (Cokin System Sandwhiched). This allows the water to move and to give it the milky white appearance.

The Murry Hotel

My Favorite shots of the Murray Hotel in downtown Vancouver, BC. The textures and the tone are what get it for me in this very simplistic Architectural shot.

I was walking home from work and noticed this small space between the two segments of the buildings. The operable windows are large enough that if opened from each side they would hit each other. With only a meter of space between the two sides (hey… its a metric country… when in Rome) you can literally reach across and touch someones hand on the other side.

The other thing that was odd/fascinating was that the space between the windows is made up of metal flashing instead of the stucco or exterior concrete finish. This made it stand out quite a bit and give the building a rustic appearance. This was the side that had a building right next to it as the exact opposite side of the building is clad in brick. I just liked the textures and the tones as well as the shadows cast on the building from the trees behind me.
