Beauty Everywhere

Even under foot.

When we took a tour of the US Capitol we were awestruck at the beautiful architecture, columns, paintings, ceilings, sculptures, the cupola, and even floor grates. I could stare at this for a long time. I love the symmetry. It looks like it’s a fibonacci sequence. Maybe that’s why it’s relaxing to me. Is it only me? It might be too busy for you.

I had to turn this one to black and white. To see why head over to the Project Edit 365 blog. Thanks!

Grate

Once again – lines.

Why have a boring grate when you can have a geometric one?

Grate – ProjectEdit365 – 21 June

The original wasn’t much different. I made it black and white and increased the clarity. I decreased the contrast to be able to see some of the metal of the grate underneath. I increased the highlights and whites and made the shadows just a tad darker. I sharpened the whole image and decreased the noise. I also straightened the image as much as I could.
