Nicely done. The top looks like a Saturn V rocket. One of the most dramatic shots of the tower I've ever seen. Simple but powerful.

I love the angle this picture was taken, and i like specially how blue the sky is, and the combination of red and blue, for me it's outstanding!

Is this an actual photo or did you use photoshop? Some of your pics are cool but I wonder if they're actual shots or manipulated in photoshop.

Hello spaubin,

This particular photo is not edited at all, beyond resizing for the web and sharpening. The lightburst on the tower is real, it's from the sun reflecting off a window or something.

I rarely alter my photos, but I do often adjust the contrast, sometimes using tricky methods, like HDR. My HDR photos are usually easy to spot by their unusual appearance. But they are real photos, just developed in a special way.

Cheers, John

Hans Sterkendries on May 19, 2007

Wonderful shot, especially how you caught the lightbeam on the tower. Is that real or manipulated?

John Gillett on May 19, 2007

Yep, the lightburst on the tower is real. By using smaller apertures, lightbursts can be had fairly easily. Sometimes I put the sun in the frame at a small aperture and give it "rays" or "spokes". :-)
