WOW, you really found an unusual way to present this museum. I would never guess what it is, although I have been there a couple of times

It happens a lot - I just make the most of it by going BW. :) The real creativity is dealing with a shot in which you didn't have time to check all the details! LOL! ;) I always seem to be shooting on the fly, er, um, I mean on the drive! LOL! ~ Lonnit

Wow! Magnificent pre-planned idea of utilizing the dark blue tint of the windshield to create the effect we see here! Very well planned indeed! ;)

Excellent story! Great result, too. -Ed Hahn

Thank you. :) The only thing I did to it was burn the top of the building, which is just above the top windows you can see, to ease the transition. Other than that, this is how it was shot - of course with BW conversion. The reason for the darkness at the top is because... you know that stupid Lonnit style where she sits in the car and shoots everything while Budget drives? Well, this was me shooting thru the windshield. So, the darkness at the top is the dark blue gradient tint of the windshield! The darkness to the left may very well be the OOF rear view mirror! So, this is what you get when you make a split-second decision to shoot a building that suddenly comes into view in a moving vehicle. :) LOL! ~ Lonnit

The spotlight gives it the drama. Very much to my liking. Shu

Very dramatic! How much (if any) post-processing was necessary to achieve the "spotlit" effect? -Ed Hahn
