Route 66 Scene

This abandoned grain silo is located on historic Route 66 somewhere between Amarillo, TX and Tucamcari, NM. I like the shot and started thinking of it in terms of fit with the upcoming BAPC Honors Night assignment "Breaking Photographic Rules" after Shirley's comment on yesterdays post. This one has a "slanted horizon," a "centered subject matter," and an "amputated top". I think it would fair well in "applicability" but what about the photo itself? How hard will it be to have a good photo that breaks rules? After all the rules are there to help define a good photo, right?

Nice shot Larry!

I really like this one a lot! I don't usually care for partially colorized shots but on this particular shot I find the way you did it to be very appealing!

I think this is a great interesting shot that should do well in the "Breaking Photographic Rules" assignment.

Well done!

Disturbing photo, but in a good way--it really makes me stop and study it. I really like the idea that you pushed and broke a few rules. Good job.
