I captured this photo back on March 27th. I posted the image to Photofocus for a critique and got a pretty good response. If you are interested, also check out the related Flickr group discussion.

Yo... this is a pic taken May 31, 2009 for my UCLA Extension "Shoot & Critique" class. We went to the Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles to capture this amazing building designed by Frank Gehry.
