No Wonder

The building on the left is a Wonder Bread bakery in downtown
San Diego. All I've done to this image is adjust levels and
crop slightly. I wish the black light pole wasn't there, but
I didn't feel talented enough to clone it out. Then again, it
adds a little something to the image, methinks.

I also have an alternate today:

other sizes: small medium original auto

WOW! Very nice!!

LOL on Bandito's comment. The pole actually fits right in with all the lines and squares!
Robin Reid13-Apr-2005 02:59
This is a great collection of textures and lines and colors. No wonder you thought it was wonderful, like I do.
Karen Leaf13-Apr-2005 02:41
Don't mess with the pole. The impending intersection of lines is dynamic. This is a good image. If anything, take a little off the right so the building is flush with the edge??

The composition makes this and the pole doesn't hurt. Who painted their sign? :)

Very nice ... I love the blue windows. Nice contrast with the red bricks and greys in the image. :)
Antonis Sarantos12-Apr-2005 21:58
Great catch Gary! I like the composition too.

Very nice, Gary! Love the colors of the near building and the color of the windows in the BG building.
Leo Charette12-Apr-2005 19:07
LOL! What a clever and unique capture. I agree with others about the pole and I particularly like the blue and orange contrast. Very nice balance to this image.

As you are the master of photoshop techniques, how do we actually know that the "no wonder!" is actually *in* the photo! This is all just a conspiracy to deflect our attention to the pole (known as red herrings to those who eat fish - like that's got anything to do with it). I'm going to study this in more detail.

Totally cool find Gary and I quite agree with Jude re the pole.
Guest 12-Apr-2005 13:41
Nice contrast between the old and a little bit newer building!!

Gary, I really like this comp, and truthfully - the black pole works for me ... it divides the space up really nicely, especially with the horizontal 'no wonder' poking into the pic plain! I think it adds to the visual interest!
It's great!!!!

I didn't notice the pole until you mentioned it..nice shot
Gayle P. Clement12-Apr-2005 10:27
The pole is important in this photo, Gary. It adds strength and actually calls attention to the "No Wonder" sign.

Then again, I have had a few beers so I could be wrong.
JeremyGood12-Apr-2005 09:39
I like the pole if for no other reason than it's the only thing on a true horizontal or vertical line in the picture. It enhances the angles and geometries of the rest of the photo.

Is the bread as good as their building !! :>)
Dan Chusid12-Apr-2005 06:12
I'll clone it out for you Gary... if you've got the bread. ;-)
Guest 12-Apr-2005 05:41
Nice shot Gary, looks like we were somewhat thinking alike today
Dawn12-Apr-2005 05:31
The pole kinda works in a 90 degree angle fashion to the sign tho.. kind of like the no-wonder sign is pointing that direction and the black line stops it. I like the coloration on this too, with the vivid blues/reds.
