Sweeny, Texas



My wife and I recently attended the Hood-Butler family reunion in Sweeny, Texas. It's a small town an hour south of Houston near Old Ocean where my wife has had family for years. On the way we stopped long enough to take a few pictures in the area including this water tower located near downtown. We circled it a couple of times looking for the best composition and this is what I came up with.

Cool shot Larry!

I really like the composition! You gave us several things to look at that don't really compete for attention with the main subject.

I like the B&W treatment as well!

Well done!

Larry, the first thing I saw were the wonderful clouds!...which Cindi taught me to appreciate. Suffering through the heat as we are, this photos really shows dry and heat to me. Don't forget I have changed my blog to the following address: http://shirleypearcephotography.blogspot.com

Good subject. Good composition. Good post processing.

This is one of your very best images. If you plan on printing this one, my only suggestion is that you make sure that you have a true black point in the photo. I think a true black points provides black and white with the depth that the print really needs.

Again, fine work.
