Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenger’s Choice: Urban Architecture

Happy Monday, mobile photography challengers!  Here’s my entry to Sally D’s challenger’s choice, taken a few weeks ago on a fickle summer’s day, when the sun dodged in and out of the clouds.   The reflection in the mirrored surface of the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (UICA) in Grand Rapids seemed to contradict the sky overhead.  The contrast intrigued me.

A technical note:  I used the Pro HDR camera app to take the photo and then brought it into Photoshop to crop and straighten it.  (I don’t know about you, but my photos are rarely level!  I always have to readjust them.)

Have a good week, everyone.

    • Thanks so much, Cindy. My son is a photographer and I’m learning a lot from him. Do you think I ought to crop out the edge of the building in the top right? I cropped some of it, but I could do more.


  1. Hi Janet. Thanks so much for your thoughts! It’s a work in progress. Still tweaking it! I have enjoyed your shots too. We’re all improving from all these great feedback. 🙂


  2. So many nice lines and angles; and I love the reflection of the sky in the wall of windows. I too, always have to straighten out my photos in post processing no matter how careful I try to be when I shoot.
