Building are tough to move, the weather doesn’t always agree with your schedule, pesky window washers, ill placed/annoying/ugly safety devices, and don’t get me started on those reflections or items in just about every window.

PM Realty wanted to show what the views were going to look like from their new condominiums at Park Lane in Dallas. The problem was the complex was still being built, and there where 20 story cranes in the way. You move them out of the shot as best you can (far right & bottom left). After removing enough of the cranes and making a few color adjustments, we then decided the horizon would look nicer from a floor or two lower. I guess the penthouse doesn’t have the best view for once. Stephen Karlisch captured these images.
The client wanted me to remove the construction elevator from the side of the also unfinished apartments on the right and include a moving Dart Train (with reflection) to show the close proximity of urban transport.
I guess it’s difficult to get a shiny GO RV where you want it, plus get a bigger tent.
Solana was in the process of redoing their office park, but they needed to get some ads in the pipe on what the end product should look & feel like. They found some stock and took some photos of their iconic obelisks and asked me to merge them together.
Take the cranes out, or leave them in!? 😀
AT&T wanted to expand their generic stock library for their internal and vendor use. With a model and a phone, they took a few simple and cheap to produce pictures and then found some stock construction sites. I was able to combine the shots and keep them looking realistic, without blowing the budget, and gave them more options for their background options.
The Giant Green Monster Pipe was a large filter/separator that was strapped to a wide-load truck, shipped and buried soon after it’s paint job, (Think processing all the waste water from a large theme park sized parking lot). The photo needed to be submitted along with Hanson blueprints, for engineering awards. I’m proud to say it won. I really liked the Indiana Jones-esque warehouse it was painted in, but it was deemed too distracting. So all the hanging insulation was removed. I guess this example just needed to be pretty, not industrial realistic.
This Beal Bank image in Boston was chosen to highlight the bank, not must getting a new neighbor or the parked car reflected in the window.
Birmingham’s Beal Bank sign is now much more legible.
This may look to be an easy fix, but converging lines will give most novices fits.
