Concentric

An outdoor stage in a small town with folks who enjoy a touch of artfulness. I became entranced with the lines as they diverged into the background.

I like this and I don't, I think it's the processing but am not sure. I'll need to come back to this and look at it again. S-

The subject is super fascinating and I would be forced to try to photograph it. I am not sure this is its most effective angle, and it would benefit from one of Bob's Special Processing methods that strike awe into those of us who cannot fathom which you might be doing to get the looks you get. I think some approach that emphasizes the geometry and downplays the other surroundings might showcase the lines that caused you to take note, and make us want more from it. Did you take any shots straight on? I'm curious how those might make up, too. Let's keep talking about this one, the possibilities are too enchanting to let it go.

This was the same photo shoot ...... I was using a Canon 16-35mm L series wide angle lens, trying to see what all I could encompass into a single scene. This one emphasizes the lines a bit more.
