I have no idea how this looks, I'm editing on a monitor connected to the laptop and I was unable to calibrate it. This monitor hurts my eyes...

Edit: Thanks for the votes and comments! I agree about needing a bit more contrast, but I couldn't tell until I submitted and later saw it on my calibrated monitor.

Ken! Congratulations. You now have a ribbon of each color -- wow, is that pretty. I didn't vote in this challenge, so it's the first time I've seen your entry. Incredible symmetry.

Your comment on my shadowed 50 Day photo is now doubly appreciated. ;-)

Great idea and perfect choice of timing to get the symmetry.

I sympathise with the monitor problem. It still works well though, as the score shows!

First thing I see whenever I look at this is that it's crooked. Thing is, I'm not sure you can make it look straight...

Congrats on the Red.

Excellent. Great control over dynamic range. Powerful use of shadows for your design elements. Great retention of detail in the grain of the wood. (tone mapped?).

Absolutely AWESOME perspective - I think this is brilliant.

However I think it lacks a little oomph! Wondering if more contrast would do it - OR B&W conversion..

Anyhoo - great image.

What a great shadow pattern! Good perspective and composition, I wonder though if this would do better in black and white, where the light and shadows would have more impact. Regardless it is a nice capture and will done!

Nice composition and great shadows! Well done.

08/07/2007 06:27:36 PM
Great eye on this one!! perfect subject for the challenge and very pleasant symetric composition. B&W would be interesting to see but I am not sure it would add any to the impact, may in fact diminish it.My first 10 vote in this challenge.
