Ellipsis Photo Shoot Monday #26: Hit me with your best shot

Carly wants us to get all Pat Benatar on her:

Ok, now it is your time to shine! We photographers might tackle a lot of subjects, but we all have one type of photography that is our very favorite. Landscapes, Still Life, Night photography, Portraits, Pet photography, Seascapes, Sunsets, Macro photography... it's all good. For this assignment you are welcome to look in your archives and post your best photo, or you can set the scene sometime within this week, and show off the type of photography you feel you excel at. If you do go with a shot from your archive, try to make it one you haven't posted before, I am really interested in seeing something new if possible. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT!

I don't really know what type of photography is my favorite; I'm still kind of new to this stuff. I would like to say Landscapes, but that is only because that is the type I like to look at. We don't have many great places to take landscape shots around here.

Anyway, I don't know if this is my best shot, but I like it. I like the geometrical shape of the hotel against the clouds, for some reason.

So, there you have it. Go to Carly's site to see what others have posted.

Hi Mike :)

I like this very much! There is a lot to draw the eye in. The clouds are just stunning, and then when framed by objects on both sides it makes for a visual treat. Nicely done.

Love those clouds! :)

I like the architectural pattern against the clouds in the sky. You have an eye for color and the total scene. Very nice job!

What struck me is the softness of the clouds and trees against the rigid structure of the building. Interesting shot!

That really is cool. And you're right - the contrast between the fluffy rounding of the clouds and the sharp angles of the building are what make the photo work.
