Hi, how about some pictures of windows and other parts of buildings?

It's a venetian window, but the picture was taken in the citadel of Sighisoara, Romania. There is a replica of a venetian house there.

Hey Schubi,

Nice picture.

I rarely take pictures of windows; this is one of the few I have got. It's one of the stained glass windows of the York Minster. I used the auto-mode of my camera (which happens to be the only mode).

Shot at the American Museum of Frontier Culture in Staunton Virginia. This was done on film (remember that stuff?) and shot with my Minolta Maxxum 7000i. It was and still is one of my personal favorites.

Thank you. I'm sure you are already taking beautiful shots. The trick is to shoot what your heart tells you to shoot you know. :)

It's been a while (almost 3 months, I think), since I have had a chance to see what's been happening here.

So here is my first post for ages and ages. It's taken in Siena, Italy of someone who had not quite noticed me and my camera!!

She was sitting in a gelateria enjoying a fine Italian coffee on a hot autumn evening, September 2005.

This house has only two tiny windows facing onto a small Piazza. I've been in Siena twice - and it stuck in my memory the first time round (minus camera). So second time round, I took this

No problem! I am not going to throw a fit after a very mild comment. I get far worse every day. And besides, having seen your self portrait a half an hour ago, how could I get irritated by the comments of someone as clearly relaxed as yourself on the hammock.

Window, door, what odds...

A couple in a doorway (nothing like stating the obvious !)
Forbidden city, Beijing, July 2004

Quite a lot of PS CS2 on this one. I always have problems with shots involving huge variations in light intensity. The central area (through the doorway) was heavily overexposed, by comparison with the interior. Duplicate layer, mask off the central area. Darken the central area selectively (levels on background layer) and lighten the interior selectively (levels on the mask layer). Time taken about 10 mins.

I like the result. Is this over-interference. I don't think so. I view it more as healing the sick !

Nice picture, Glenn. I definitly agree with you this is not over interference. I have fixed many pictures that way myself. With my old camera I had hardly any control over the exposure, so many of my pictures were too dark (except for the skies that is). Have you tried the shadow/highlight option already. It will do the same thing, but may be less accurate. Sometimes you can't tell the difference, though and then this option is really handy, since it will safe you quite some time.

Here's another window picture. It's a circular window in the top of a dome in the Vatican Museum:

So it seems to me the picture of Kushnirenko is posted in the right thread, even though the window is not very dominant in his picture ;).

Nice idea for a thread though, "roof eves with snow". Perhaps I'll take some with me from Austria in two weeks :).

Yup. My bad. That was a long time ago, and I forgot that other building parts were included. So I guess the rule is, any part of a building is fair game. I think windows are a lot more interesting, but I digress...

I live in the wrong part of the world for the "REWS" thread. We barely get rain. You would think with all of the indian reservations around here that we could get a rain dance once in a while... Seemed to work last year.;)
