    If you look at the image as bisected by the train tracks, the lower half is much busier and more interesting than the top half. I wonder if this were shot from a slightly lower angle? Just a thought. What you have accomplished here is very effective, and as I said, a really technically excellent photo.
    It's a D80. I could try some lower shot. Maybe I will. The flash is that SB800 and bounces off the walls pretty nicely. Luckily, Viki who had painted this room 5 times trying to get the right color (orange, pink, green, etc., etc.) finally ended up with Realtor Off White.
    As to the train company, Tri-ang, thanks for that mention. Interesting trains.

    Jack,

    I don't mean to imply that you need one, because the lighting in your shot is perfect.

    However, I have one of these and find it to be an invaluable tool, especially when in a room that one's wife hasn't painted perfectly. Best $20 I ever spent.

    Thanks. Easier than repainting the room. She denied that she used some of the colors I listed. I stand corrected.

    Took a little ride down to the Quantico Marine Corp Museum as it has a nice triangular roof.....

    These were shot in RAW mode so I had to edit them but only for conversion to jpeg.

    While I like the first one cause it shows the use of multiple triangles in the structure.

    The second one is more interesting in that it has a human element to it.

    Triangles

    I was determined to find a "Natural Triangle" not a constructed one. It took a while but Mother Nature bent this tree over another to form what I was looking for.

    Triangles



    Top box triangles.

    I just physically couldn't get the angles to work on this shot, the BMW roundel being too far from the Union flag sticker, and so the grey expanse between became a problem. Plus, lighting. The surface isn't flat and cast vertical shadows up through the flag.

    I may try again, later, with more than one light source. Back to magi lite in the teeth time.

    What do you mean "foggy"?
    Patriotically I do have several other versions, where the flag is in focus and the BMW roundel is out of focus, but they had the shadows all wrong.

    If of course you mean metaphorically foggy, then yah boo sucks to you, with nobs on and a cherry on top!

    On a pedantic point, it's the Union flag...the Union Jack is a naval version I believe and has something to do with the ensign. But I do know for sure, the flag in the pic isn't the "jack".
