Just a quick post for today.  This is the inside of one of the mill buildings in Lawrence, MA that is undergoing renovations.  Unfortunately, this section of the building was completely locked, and I couldn’t find a way inside.  So instead, I took this shot through one of the windows looking in.  I tried to mask out most of the reflections from the glass, but if you look closely, some are still visible.  Even though I couldn’t really experiment with different angles because I wasn’t inside, I still like the lines, patterns, and the light streaming through the large windows.

    Excellent composition with great lines and light Steven. You should try the lens skirt for shooting through windows. I saw it on Justin Balog’s blog a month or so ago and picked one up. Works as advertised.

    I like how you’ve used the light on the floor as a compositional element. Nicely done Steven!

    Great composition, I would never have guessed you had to shoot this through a window! Great balance to this. Well done.
