Hotel light

I see this all the time at our hotel and finally decided to photograph it (since I was looking for things to use the RX1 on ;-)).

For those who thought there was streaking on the top, I just went down and looked at the wall, and it's heavily textured (and some of the lines are a bit curvy, not straight), so I think what is visible in the image is the wall, not streaking (whew ;-)).

Sony DSC-RX1
1/100s f/4.0 at 35.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Amazing graphical art abstract! The dark "rays" in the warm glow are fascinating! V

I would never have imagined it was a lamp. Very clever.

Fascinating and mesmerizing. Perhaps the Hotel is practicing some sort of mind control on its guests with this. "V"

That's amazing, Helen. The thumbnail made me (nerd) think of a processor chip and its wires. V

Very nice abstract comp and capture, Helen. This looks like digital art. V

Well seen and captured with bold colors and shapes! There some horizontal streaking but hey, this is not FF! I'd test the Leica on this as well! V

Striking picture. V

I see some "horizontal streaks" at the top of the image - not sure if they are real or not? Could be the walls themself...
Barry S Moore24-Sep-2013 12:13
