Blue Billboard - canon 20d w/17-40

I saw this billboard at the Distillery District, I love how the blue of the ad works with the sky. Shot with a polariser the only edits I did were to clone out some buildings that were just peeking in at the bottom behind the frame of the billboard.

    Yes this is really a beautifull work. I stared at picture for several minutes to get the secret of this "blues"...:)

    Good composition. The polarizer has really done its job here-- great color saturation.

    Sad to hear you cloned out buildings (but that's just the faux-purist in me).

    Otherwise great shot. You're right the blue against blue is really nice and the shot comes out so clean.

    I gotta get myself one...the polarizers are an experience. Nice blue...can't go wrong with blue...
    There seem to be movement in your shot that "Pattison" sign is a lil distracting!

    Never would've thought blue on blue, very nice capture indeed. Good time of a clear day.

    I'm probably the only one who didn't like it too much. Having visible text makes me focus on it rather than the rest (and some of it is blurry... focus blur?) which I find distracting.

    I believe it's the sign we CAN'T see that saves this image; it makes the composition work and offers that sense of mystery (although I don't know if that's the correct word) that the image needs in my opinion.

    The colors are great, but I like the maze of supports and struts even more.
