    Was out tonight and decided to stop and try these again, but at night. I did them during the day last week and just didnt get the effect that I wanted.

    thanks guys...#1 would be so much better if some fool wasnt parked next to it, leaving that awful shadow. Perhaps I will try it again when noone is parked next to it. (also, do you see the cool bullet hole in the window pane? LOL)

    Very attractive title, I must say first! Well put.

    And the first picture is an absolute STUNNER. I really, really, really like that and could imagine this to be a huge poster! Honestly! OK, maybe like this but without the triangle of a shadow, but to tell you the truth: I did not even mind that too much until you drew my attention to it yourself with your most recent comment ;).

    Where did your light for all these come from?

    LaPhoto, first off, thank you for the comment - it made me feel really good. The lighting was from a street lamp high up on a post for the old buildings and the coke machine one, well it was mostly moonlight.

    The coca-cola shot really works for me. It might be a teeensy bit central, but hang the rule of thirds - I love the exposure, tones and range in this one, a very unique feel to the picture. You're coming out with some real winners now - keep em coming!

    Thanks again. I did convert the coke one into black and white, but as some others have said and I must agree, that the colored version is much nicer! The tones are actually natural - all i did was add a little bit of contrast and shaprening. I am going back tonight after the rain stops to retake it, because they close early on Sunday, which means there will be no vehicles there to cast a shadow on my materpiece HAHAHAHA.
