Thanks, Nicolas. The Arch has a wonderful curve that looks a little different from every viewpoint.

Hi Ryan. Well, my husband and kids have just bought Halo3 and then I saw this... reminds me of the Halo. I like how you have taken a picture of a very famous object from an unconventional angle. This is what photography is about! Vicki

Thanks, Vicki! I usually end up standing "too close" to take my pictures, in this case because I didn't like the way any of the background park or city looked, except for the beautiful sky on this day. Even in the conventional straight angle, I left out the base and the city skyline. I was also trying to stand in places where the sun and clouds made the best reflections on the metal, and ended up with a stiff neck from looking up for so long. :-) Ryan
