Re: Discussion Thread - October Competition

I have several shots of this strange triangle building nearby but there is no angle to capture this without a gazillion power lines--telephone--It sits in the triangle area between a Y intersection and all the lines come together there as well. My question is---take the lines out or leave them alone??? There is one shot with the lines incorporated into the composition but its still messy looking?? These should be with minimal editing I understand but -- its so tempting to just go to town on those lines---

My thumb rule is:

manipulating the building would be a no go...
removing extraneous objects is ok...

The picture that I entered had a beer bottle on the railing and I didn't notice it until I got home and looked at the images.

Since I was not modifying the bridge, I felt it was ok to "remove" the bottle

Couldn't get the lines out without it looking hokey so I stuck the camera out the window and snapped several bridge photos at 60 mph (not supposed to stop on the bridge)

How true. There is one bridge just up the road from where I live that has the most beautiful scenery below it. The bridge, however, is a very narrow two lanes. Even getting two vehicles going in opposite directions to pass is a dicey situation. Imagine my thrill when they closed one lane for bridge maintenance and repair early last spring. The construction workers thought I was more than a little nuts but let me stand there and shoot all the pictures I wanted. I thought I died and went to photographer's heaven. Sadly, none of the pictures have any architecture in them. But, your comment about shooting at 60 mph gave me fond memories. I thought I'd share.
