    I was walking around in the daytime (yeah I know)

    and got caught up in some reflections around the federal building in Santa Ana ca. Sometimes polarizers and post processing can yield interesting results.

    Wow. I sometimes can't believe the shots you come up with.
    What happened? Get a day off work? lol.
    Weird seeing pics from you in the daytime again.

    These are awesome.
    I think 2 is my favourite just because of the crisp reflection and the way the mirrors bend the light.

    Great shots. Love them all.

    noticed that the "flag" are reversed. I was once told to make sure that the flags are shot in the right direction.

    Numbers three and four are my favorites. The rest are good though. Great series.

    thanks guys... yeah I had some time off one day during the christmas time !!! yey !!!

    as for the flag,
    I dont think there is really no "right direction" for viewing, or taking the picture
    you will actually see reversed flags on military uniforms so that the stars are closer to the guys heart.
    position of the viewer or camera in this case has nothing to do with the flags orientation, just it was a better shot with the sun where it was. I think, its all relative to whats in the picture and how the shot looks best, just my 2 cents , But ideally yes I would rather shoot it the other way if the wind had obliged !!!!

    They still have the Thorhammer touch to them though. Personally, I can live without the flags and emblems, but the building shots are very nicely done.
