Hey Rapunzel. Thanks for commenting! Yes, I LOVE taking pictures of sunsets. :D Where these pictures are taken varies. From where I live (NW Iowa), Colorado, Alabama, and Spain! I love to vary my pictures. :)

I have removed the last photo. Thanks for the tip. ;)

Consider re-posting the photo you removed.

The sunsets and so forth are terrific (my compliments)... but you might notice that about maybe 90 percent of the photos on this forum are of buildings in sunlight. Some of them ordinary, some of them extraordinary.

Your photo of the building fits right in... after all, this is an architecture forum.

Also: there are many talented members here who photograph architecture and regularly post their favorite pet

Derek, Midtownguy etc. would probably lend a hand if you are seeking advice.

Again, compliments on your work.

Thank you all for your comments!! I will search around for a place to post the building again right now. :) I'm going to be going to Orlando tomorrow for 1 week so I'll be sure and snap some photos of the architecture down there too.

Thanks again,

Picture 2 is beautiful, but the others are very nice too. Very nice.

ClubBC, how about :

"Your photo of the building fits right in... after all, this is largely an architecture oriented web-site.

^ Let me know if this is ok, or if I should refine it further. Thanks.

I'm back from Orlando and didn't really take a lot of architectural pictures, as I was going there for a National Youth Gathering for church, which didn't get me a lot of time to take photos. Soo...later tonight I'll upload one of the two that I thought were really good and then I'll be taking some more around here with my new camera.

See ya! ~~

Wow. It's been a while since I've posted on this forum. But I'm fully back and ready for action .. eer, again? :P I'm currently a senior in high school and only have about 7 months left before adventuring off by myself into the world of college.

Expect some crazy stuff this last year! Thanks for your comments,

Heh. I really haven't posted in this thread for a while. I've taken quite a few pics lately and thought I'd update this thread with some of my latest releases. Comments welcome! Thanks! :)

Going back to your original post, I loved the first pic. Not sure why, I just felt pulled into it.

Love 'em.

Suggestion: Don't name them. (Not yet, anyway.) Let us interpret them.

Aaah, ok. I'll edit the post and remove the names.

Hey Punzie. Thanks for your responses!

Unfortunantly, I didn't get some of your comments on the photography. Like this one below. Sorry. :confused:

Social Commentary:

The last solider we would have left to fight a war would not look like a
Herculean hero. He would be a dazed, out-of-shape old man.

He could just as well be made of stone...:(

*** See what I mean, Ben? ***

I really like the way it looks when you horizontal flip it and put the big rocks on the left side of the photo. I agree, that looks better. I never would have thought of that. :p

Sorry if I didn't reply like you'd hope or wanted me too. I'm a noob, I know. :P Just lemme know. Thanks Punzie,

Here is a new picture I uploaded to deviantART while at school today. We had quite the ice storm on the 1st, so I took that to my advantage on the 2nd of December.


The other picture has a completely flip feel over the above one, but I still think it is a pretty cool picture. Taken in my home town on a weird sunset night.

Those are gorgeous and they look very nice side by side.

Thank you MG. That means a lot coming from such a nice photographer like yourself. :rolleyes:

Oh my Punzie! Thank you so much for that scenario and comment. That was an excellent situation and it really meant a lot to me.

I understand fully what you were talking about now and will take a longer time in deciding what to name my photographs. Thank you so much!!

Merry Christmas,

Ben, what make of camera do you use?

The Benniest
December 26th, 2007, 12:18 PM
Hi Meerkat. :) I currently use a Sony Cybershot (pics below). It's a piece of crap, small camera, but it takes really good pictures and I like it. For a graduation present in May, I'm wishing for a really nice, professional camera.

Anyone have an recommendations on what kind of professional camera I should be wishing for? Thanks!


December 27th, 2007, 11:34 PM
I think there's a thread on Anything Goes forum, where lots of members discussed good cameras.


Here are two old threads that review some products:

Here is one I took a while back. I think it suits that I have a passion for sunsets. :cool:


January 4th, 2008, 12:32 AM
It reminds me of a little of Albert Bierstadt landscape paintings.

January 21st, 2008, 11:20 PM
I didnt know this was an architecture forum

i don't neither,can i post some pix of natueral landscpe or some?

Hey guys. Been a while since I've posted in this thread, but recently I mounted some of my paintings at school and thought I'd post pictures of them in here.

If a moderator could change the title of this thread to: The Benniest's Artwork, that'd be great. Thanks.

Oops. Might help if I waited until my pictures are done uploading to Photobucket. Sorry 'bout that. Coming very soon. :)
