    I've put 5 images up that have many possiblities. please take a look, select the one you have the most interest in. all were taken in New York this July during FlashForward, 2 from Pope's room on the 40th floor of the hotel, two aboard the Staten Island Ferry, 1 inside the Guggenheim Museum.

    Hey! Those are great photos. The buildings are very compelling studies in graphics. A little cropping and they would be fine in my eyes. Of course I'm all for simplicity and not this manipulation into oblivia..... I guess I'm in the wrong place

    marcus,

    It's sort of like this: Most things I do with images uses photos, and layers upon layers of variations of a photo. The only color I ever introduce is a filled, 1 color background layer. Sometimes I'll bring in some newspaper clippings, and it's very unlikely I'd use more than one image, unless there was totally a theme for it, something I was thinking about. With adding more images, I guess it's like I am with only bring in one color: too many more options. I save things like that, I guess, for if I run out of ideas on the things that are working.

    it would drive me crazy to use more than one image, becuase in most cases, especially with architectural stuff, I have an absolute blast just dealing with one.

    I'd have to say the 3rd one is prime for a manip competition.

    And nay to the 5 in 1 deal.

    I don't think its being a wuss or not, it's that the photos don't all have something in common, and forcing them to all be put together will only lead to catastrophe.

    I'd say either 4 or 5.. Not 3.. 3 is too good of a photograph to be messed with more.. It would just be downgraded.

    elite & pbleper,

    thanks, I appreciate the comments. #3 is inside the Guggenheim in Manhattan, I think I took about 50 pics in there because I studied that building when in Architecture school. The ironic thing about being there is that it's designed by the most famous American Architect of last century, Frank Lloyd Wright, and the then current exhibit was on the architecture of Frank Gehry, currently in my mind and many others the most inventive, innovative, and exciting architect in America and the world as well.
    The inside of the museum doesn't normally have those metal curtains-those are there as part of the exhibit to represent Gehry's free flowing and organic style.

    I could have spent over an hour in there taking photos of the interior at it's normal appearance, and the fact that there was the Gehry exhibit and those incredible floor-to-ceiling metal sheets only made it that much more interesting-the way the light reflection was changed was incredible.

    If you'd like to take a look at some of Gehry's work, here's a link. If you've not ever seen anything of his, get ready, it will likely blow your mind that buildings like this are being built.

    Specifically, take a look at: Experience Music Project, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Guggenheim Museum NY & Bilbao
