awwwwwwesomewhat? where? how? etc
Thanks man! It's actually a very straightforward photo; no Photoshop sorcery. When I tell you, it's probably going to be a bit anticlimactic. It's a giant chandelier that hangs in the lobby of the Omni in Nashville. You can't get a sense of scale from the photo, but the chandelier is enormous. Probably about 8+ feet in diameter and twice that in height. I laid my camera down on the ground centered beneath and took my photo at night. Here's somebody else's photo I found on Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/19984792070292385/
It might be anticlimactic (it's not) if it was supposed to be a chandelier to me (actually I guessed). But I transcended to the fractal design and just enjoy it as art not object. In fact, don't be surprised if it ends up on my blog or somewhere (properly attributed, of course!). Also your title helped the 'transcendentalism'.
Also. In Addition. By way of. You need to take artistic credit for the framing and the dead centerdness of it. That's what makes the pic for me.
Thanks man. Titling is an interesting thing. To your point, it totally affects how people view your work. There was a photo I did a couple years ago of some statues of sheep with laser lights beamed on them to create these far-out colors. It was an good photo, but not spectacular. I named it _Android Dreams_ in reference to the Philip K. Dick novel on which _Bladerunner_ is based. That really resonated with people and I got a ton of comments on Google+ that I don't think I've have gotten with a different title. I wish I could come up with pithy titles for all my photos.
