Shrouded Building - Soho NYC

Before reviewing Jay Maisel's work, I never would have thought to shoot a shrouded building. But after seeing how some of his photos featured it, I thought I'd give it a try. I shot this a few blocks from his home/studio this evening.

Thanks everyone very much for all the wonderful comments and favs on my recent pics on all my albums. Another pic on album 2: http://365project.org/michaelelliott/more-365/2012-06-14
great angle for this one!:)

Nice! One step short of Christo's work shrouding buildings ... :)

I would not have thought to photograph a shrouded building, either. This is an interesting one...I like the red brick and blue "other" material.

@michellina @beachradish - Thanks very much! I would have liked the setting sun kicking back a goldn light, but its been raining all week here. At least there were high winds to billow the shrouding some.

You are doing a fabulous job with the artist challenge, Michael. The perspective in this is awesome and the shrouded building is a cool change up. Your weather blew my way today. Honestly, mid 50's and rainy in mid-June? What the heck?

this shot is very interesting, I like the shape created by the shrouds & the straightness and symmetry of the shot.

Great angle and composition with this shot!

You do manage to take the clear crisp images that are essential to Maisel's work. This is really good.

great pov and contrasts in textures

They do that a lot here too, I was lucky with my shot the other day, it was either going up or coming down.
Wonderful tones and reflections

It's all about the light isn't it. I tried a shrouded shot yesterday and it was tragic. This is clear and crisp, as Graham said, and lovely reflections.

Great perspective and colors! I like the different textures too!

I like the way the shroud is incorporated into the composition. Learning from the masters!

This is fabulous! Call me a freak, but I love scaffolding and stuff. This building, with it's billowing fabric, reminds me of the accountants film short at the beginning of Monty Python's Meaning of Life

@janmaki - Thank you very much. I like straight lines and symmetry too. I want to go back and shoot with sun hitting the shroud and maybe catch workers' silhouettes or shadows within.

@carolinedreams @ellida @exposure4u @ulpiphotos @olivetreeann @peterdegraaff --

Thanks very much. I can see where shrouds can provide for many aspects to a shot like composition, shapes, shadows, catch lighing, and even color. I will definitely now have my eye out for them.

I hope you retire from the LAW soon so you can devote some time to photography. You are pretty good at it and there probably is not as much pressure. Maybe you could show us London, Paris, Sydney, Moscow, Hong Kong, etc., etc., like you take us through NYC. I will follow. Brilliant work, my friend.
