Optical Opportunism

Seeing the potential of a shot is the photographer's knack, and seeing this building looming agsinst the sky from the main carpark at Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia, in April 2009, offered all sorts of possibilities. First the unusual curved morphology of the building created visual interest, the low angle against a blue sky offered colour, but realising the sun would be reflected from the windows was the cherry on the icing. I took a series of frames in both axes to catch the image at its best, a prerequisite with digital cameras on bright days if only because the light level and relative angle often means you can barely see the camera-back screen to really fine-tune what you're doing shot by shot. The image was sharpened and the colour raised a tad. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
