Point and Shoot Competition, #97: Architecture

Interpret "architecture" as you like: a shot of many structures or just one in a landscape, a bridge, a close-up of part of some structure, a building made entirely from Lego, the architecture shelf at a bookstore. If the word "architecture" can be applied to it, then it's acceptable.

cut and paste from last comp:

RULES (as per usual):

1. Have lots of fun!
2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1".
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras.
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):

Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder style cameras.
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6, Medium Format "folding", "box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1kg weight limitation).

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close on Sunday, February 29th at Midnight (Greenwich mean time)
4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.
5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.
7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

9. Feel free to post a shot (not judged) which shows off your setup.

Great theme! You will need to edit the closing time, though.

an industry now gone ...

Sitting on the shore of Lake Erie is an old defunct grain elevator. The Buffalo,NY area still has quite a few of these behemoths from better days gone. But all is not lost. Our waterfront is undergoing a wonderful rebirth and plans are in the making to reuse these historical buildings from our industrial heritage.

A wonderful moody image, zman!
The low cloud cover seems really appropriate.

I'll accept that claim. (Though I can't see the photo for some reason.)

Champlain, Victor and Sheen-Waz

While one can argue that a statue is not architecture but rather art, a reasonable claim can be made that the plinth upon which the statue stands is architecture. The statue, the man and the dog are clearly bonuses. The statue is of Samuel de Champlain by Hamilton MacCarthy and was cast in 1915. Champlain stands holding his astrolabe (upside down) atop Nepean Point in Ottawa overlooking the Ottawa River.

Camera: Pentax MX-1
Exposure: 1/400 sec. at f/5.6
Focal Length: 6mm (28mm with 35mm camera)
ISO: 100

Beautiful light here.
Remarkable lack of distortion. Did you correct in post or is this lens that good?

Great juxtaposition.
And I see quite some architecture in the background as well

I shot in JPEG so the camera must have fixed the distortion. But yes, the camera has a very good lens. A 28-300 constant f/2.8 equiv. Can't get that kind of lens anywhere.

Well, the result is certainly remarkable.

Reflections from downtown

This unusual sight caught my eye while strolling in downtown Toledo, OH. Didn't have my K-30 with me but I did have my wife's PS Sony DSC-H20. For a point and shoot, it does a pretty good job of capturing images..

Interesting distortions caused by the glass panels in that reflection!
