You did not like the background presented at the location or did you not like how you represented it in your photo? I'm just asking as a point of interest. The scene in and around the building had some interesting backdrops. I'm wondering why you didn't use them.

I would agree that the photo you present here is very nice. It's well exposed and sharp. I'm just not keen on the texture used in this particular shot.

Thanks Doug!

I didn't really have a background to work with here. I took this shot in the failing evening light and I managed to blow the white background out with the flash I was using. We were losing the light quickly here and I should have been changing my camera settings every 2 minutes instead of every 5. :-)
