Window Views and Doors Too #34: Driving By Alexandria

18 Aug


Striking color scheme caught my attention to these blue windows as the taxi whizzed by the streets of Alexandria, Egypt.

    Wonderful photo – such great colors. Love the laundry hanging from the building, too.

    It would have caught my attention, too. Beautifully composed. I love the texture blends in this, also.

    This is a great shot on many levels. Interesting because it looks like a box placed on another box. The lighting is great…. reflections from the next building filling in on the shadow side & adds more color. The window color contrasts with the building very well. Great composition/lines. Thanks for sharing!

    The wall in my photo was painted to match the brick (I guess). They were wood siding of some sort. Thanks for visiting!

    A great photo. Looks like the upper floor is too big for the rest of the house 😀

    The play of light throughout this photo is fantastic. I would have noticed and been clicking like mad. Wonderful picture.

    I like this HDR effect in this shot. How fabulous to be in Alexandria, Egypt…so colorful, so unique. About my Santa Monica Pier photo…you asked if it was HDR or tweaked to appear so. I originally took 3 exposures but was dissatisfied because the people moved and created a serious ghosting effect when they were combined. So…I took the “normal” exposure and created HDR with a single exposure…not true HDR, but it works for me! I’m learning what works and what doesn’t work with 3 exposures (slowly but surely). Back to your photo…I love it!
