    I would invite all of you to take a close look at this image - technical exposure details and development controls aside - the composition is breathtaking - notice the attention to detail of the alignment of the columns at various distances to the choice or cropping at the edges - I could go on and on, but just enjoy it as you discover the details. This is what happens when one has attained extreme technical proficiency - you are allowed to focus(no pun intended) on the compositional and artistic elements of the image as you visualize it in your mind and then on the ground glass. Very well done indeed!

    Hi Steve,

    Just wanted to comment that I like your series of stories behind the photograph.

    Though when you described walking out on a ledge to make the photography in the Hartford City Hall, while fascinated with the story, I suddenly understood that you are not nearly as smart as I thought you were!! What old man in his right mind would do such a thing, for a picture.

    It was a really nice shot!! But hopefully with time you will cultivate some friends who prevent you from doing such foolhardy things.

    Best,

    Sandy

    I would agree with you Sandy...and when I get old I will curtail those decisions !

    Cheers, SS

    While back-storys are interesting, I feel that each image offered for public viewing (say at a Show or Gallery) should be able to stand alolne without caption or even a title.

    If the viewer is attracted to the image enough to walk across a larger room fopr a closer look and then spends a minuite or so exploring it, then maybe a short bit of back-story can add depth to that experience.

    But if the image only has attention due toi some aspect of its creation not evedent in the image itself, its is much less effective in my view.

    I have a print of this image hanging proudly in my living room and can attest that the image on your screen does not do it justice.

    Thanks Steve.

    Well I really like what I can see of it on my computer screen.

    Wish I had the opportunity to photograph this scene. Does it need a back-story?

    Mountain out of a mole hill? Steve posted the picture and a link for the back story. If you only want to look at the image, you can click on it for the larger version. No extra text. If you are interested in the back story, you click on the link. Choice is up to the viewer. Personally, I enjoy the back story.

    Many times just the incidental information found in the The Story Behind Every Photograph is very informative, see here:
