Superbly observed. I would be interested to see a version with a little more contrast in the mono conversion (but I may still prefer this one...), nonetheless, a 10 from me.

The values and contrast in this picture adds a lot. Great shot.

A brillinat image. I hope to see this with a blue ribbon. Terrific and my favorite in the challenge.

Nice capture of the shadows, both of the patterns in this picture are very strong.

This reminds me of a flower for some reason. It's light, delicate, and sort of blossoms. Anyway, it's a great pic. Something I'd hang in my room.

Wow! What a pattern! One of few 10s I've given. The shadows and the building's edge just make this almost perfect. Well done... (applause)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 02:52:47 PM
very good picture i like the patterns and how it looks like theres nothing out towards the left
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 10:14:22 AM
the effect of the shaddow from the stairs is really good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2008 10:43:42 PM
Wonderful tones, strong composition and delicate detail. You couldn't have timed this any better, and B&W was a great choice to focus attention on the forms. One of my top three picks and easily worthy of a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2008 09:36:29 PM
Nice and crisp. Original concept for this theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2008 08:33:03 AM
Very nice shot of patterns. Good flow and great in B&W too. Back to bump you up to 8.

03/28/2008 09:53:17 PM
excellent use of shadow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 09:31:59 AM
I like the range of values in this picture even though it doesn't have a true white or a true black.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 11:42:29 PM
I always love a photo in which the shadows have a big part to play! Really nice work here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 10:10:06 PM
Nice and bold. I might have cropped out the left side to make it a little more abstract in appearance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 05:06:40 PM
Very nice. I like that towards the top it isn't easily distinguishable where the stairs stop and the shadows begin. Excellently composed and processed. A great study in patterns as well as shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 02:09:02 PM
Great shadows! I would have cropped out the lamp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 12:31:54 PM
I like the fact that the shadows actually elongate and accentuate the patterns on the stairs. It adds a different dimension.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 11:42:04 AM
good b/w study
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 10:46:43 AM
could have been a 9 but i dont vote now
now i do
03/27/2008 09:36:07 AM
I like it even better without the lamp on the left - only the white part of the photo. you have cought a great moment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 12:06:07 AM
kinda cool. like the shadow. a bit grey though - hows the contrast??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 11:53:15 PM
Super capture. Great eye in an everyday situation for this challenge. This is top drawer capture but for me what makes the shot is the composition. The eye really flows through the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 01:29:26 PM
Good timing on this shot for the shadow. This shot probably wouldn't be as good if the shadow wasn't as dominant a force as it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 11:19:20 AM
Top 10! terrific pov and very simple, the b/w adds to the impact. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Elegant and simple. Very nice. 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 09:43:40 AM
at first glance, a saw the stairs as looked down upon with the rail on the left, but when i really looked at it i could see what it really is. fantastic capture of natural shadowing pattern.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 09:39:38 AM
i like that the pattern creates another pattern with the shadow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 09:31:00 AM
this really is a perfect display of patterns. the shadows are perfect, and i like the lighting a lot. amazing job
