A Prominent Feature...

...in my city's skyline is the temple. It's ever a stark, white contrast against the dark or stormy sky, and can be seen from almost anywhere in town.
(I used a Nikon D-40, automatic setting, no flash, with natural overcast lighting, then slightly cropped it.)



And I know this one is incredibly late, but I never got a chance to post for EDGE, and I really wanted to put up the picture I took. This is an example of what happens to the snow here when it melts--an edgy wavelike effect is created. (Nikon D-40, automatic setting.)



CC welcome on both photos.

The temple and the snow are both very beautiful. You got really great pictures on your automatic setting! Mine never turn out that great on automatic. Good job!!!

Wow, the sky is gorgeous on your temple picture! I was going to say I'd crop it in tighter, but then I realized the sky would be cut out. Keep it as is! :)

Very nice job with your new Nikon camera, I love the sky on your Temple picture and of course the Temple is absolutely beautiful. Don't you love your new camera?

Melinda said...

I love both pictures! I loved driving the freeways in that area and seeing the temple from nearly every viewpoint. Nice angle on it!

Seeing your temple picture makes me homesick!! Good job on both.

The temple definately stands out in may ways, and that is a great shot!

I love your take on feature. Nice colors- the temple really stands out against the sky. I might crop it a little differently so it's not so centered.
