[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This tall fence has two very separate functions. First it is arranged to dampen the effect of winds on this very tall tower which rises 509 metres above the streets of Taipei. The steel blades which number more than 1000 surround the public open air viewing area. Secondly the shape and height makes it very difficult for anyone who seeks to see if they can fly from this high place, whether they be Base jumpers or just seek to end their struggles with life.
View directly outwards in workshop.

Hi Murray,

Amazing composition. Very nice diminishing composition. Nice colors. TFS.


Hello Murray,
Great lines of course, and you frame what you want us to see very well!
By the way... This is most interesting as a subject as I had no idea how it looks like on the top...
I will have a look at the WS after I add this!

WS: I'd NEVER go up there!!

Bonjour Murray
belle composition, belles couleurs


I love the photo and the workshop. Great notes. I may have ran this through Neat Image though, it has a considerable amount of noise along the wall. I like the perspective and the way the curved fence comes into the image from the top right and exits on the middle left. Makes the whole image look curved and interesting.
Good work,

Hi Murray,
Very good photo.Beautiful compo.
Best Wishes,

Hi Murray,
This one is a veritable optical illusion (for me, anyways). From your note I gather the blades curve inward, but at first (and second) glance, I saw the fence curving away from me, and the blades curving outward.
Very nice composition,
All the best,
