Hard Wired

Today’s shot is another from my trip to the abandoned gas station just outside Seebe, Alberta. These wires sticking out of the floor were almost right in the center of the room, so I have no idea what might have been attached to them when the station was fully functional. I do know that they were begging to be photographed 🙂

I was having some difficulties getting the angle on my crop exactly right…it seems as though some of those tiles may not have been laid quite true. What do you guys think, could it use a bit of extra rotation in either direction?

Don’t change a thing. The orientation is perfect! I love the shallow depth of field. Nicely done.

Simplicity and great lines. Love it.

SLIGHT rotation left but thats only because you brought my attention to it. Love the light

Actually, the lines are quite good without adjustment. A little imperfection in a scene like this seems to work for me. Really like the simplicity and the somewhat negative space, even though the lines are in the that space! Great!

I think the lines are really nice! They look perfectly straight leading to the focal point, and the horizonal lines from the wires look pretty straight to me. Nice work.

I love the shot as-is… I agree with Jim and I think it would be really hard to get this shot lined up perfectly. It’s a very creative approach. Nice!

I like it – i can see where the lines may play tricks – the hole in the floor isnt true to the tiles so that makes it appear outa whack a bit.
The focal point is lovely as is the perspective.
