The Cappellini store in Soho, New York City. Shot from out side the window. I love the reds and the typeface.

    Good DOF. genial

  • Richard Hollins on 26.10.2009 @ 13:24

    Very nice. That shallow depth of field and the blue lettering against the abstract red shapes works perfectly. You have a great eye for these things.

  • hoi on 26.10.2009 @ 13:45

    I like the brightness here.

  • Ariel on 26.10.2009 @ 14:00

    Very attractive colors. And very original indeed. You really have a sharp eye!

    nice out of focus abstract

    i also love the color blue of the lettering!! i have had my living room both colors red and robin's egg blue, now it's the color of sand :) which of course is the color that has lasted the longest, but i digress, this is a great great shot, and i love it, very dramatic and bold!!

    :) I love it.

    The colors marry well with each other. The warm contrast of the background and lettering gives the picture an eye catching and relaxing perspective. It suits well the Autumn season.

    The picture's perspective reveals Cappellini's business somehow, neat & eclectic designs, lines, rich colors.

    Absolutely love the bokeh beyond the signage. A very clever and creative shot. Bravo!

    It is the same font I use for "afk" - http://www.davingreenwell.com/archive/2008/02/afk_frisky_loves_canada_mix_20.php

    Helvetica Neue Bold. It is a thing of beauty. Great shot of it in action.

    The Cappelline text is not so spectacular, though its color is nice, but the red background looks marvelous.

  • Nestor Antonio on 18.06.2010 @ 14:47

    Awesome composition and vibrant colors. Did you tried to sell the image to the store to use as a presentation card?
