I had to change this from my original entry. I just looked them both over (the final two, there were many more) and felt this was good and a lot less complicated than the other.

I had it done in color but it really works better in black and white. I have a terrible time with entries and I always seem to choose the wrong one. I hope that I did not choose the wrong one this time.

I have to figure out what I did since I did it at the end of last week...I'll post the post later.

Another surprising subject for this challenge (to me; I was stuck on the woodlands concept). Works beautifully, though, and the light makes intersting patterns that complement the architecture.

This looks great in black and white. The light on the dome really makes it pop from the background.

I really like the clarity of the dome. As a matter of fdact, the contrast of the architecture is really cool against the bulding. Dare I say to bump thgis to a 7? Yes, it is done. 7

Excellent idea for dappled light. Very crisp and clear. I love the old next to the new.

Interesting old and new architecture. B @ W works well.

Excellent use of dappled light to show off the geometry and textures of the cupola. Great background too. An eight for you.

Cool contrast of old and new.

Errr. Wow! What amazing shapes. The shadosw on the roof are great, they just add even more to the patterns. Personally I would like to not see the bottom-left corner of the near building/roof cropped out of the frame. Otherwise brilliant!

I find myself wanting to look at the background moreso than the subject which appears flat. I like the b&W but maybe could be better imo with a blurry background.

I think a different angle would have made a nicer photo

Nice architectural shot, i just wish that you could see just a little bit of space just left of the base of the dome, even an inch would suffice.

the overall sharpness of your image really makes it stand out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/23/2008 09:18:21 AM
Good shot i like the off centered dome nice shadows
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Razor sharp. B&W was a very good choice as it reveals more detail. I would like to see more of it and less of the background. Maybe centered composition would've been better? I don't know. I like the technical perfection and your eye for the detail.

Great contrast between the light, curved foreground and dark straight background. Nice ro see some architecture in amongst all the dappled forest pics too! Well done.

Great eye to catch this. The image of the dome, alone, is very interesting but contrasting it against the (modern) skypcraper really makes this shot.

Interesting capture. Good contrasts.

This photograph has a wide range of values.

Meets the challenge with originality and elegance, in spite of some minor issues: crop too tight left, could be globally a bit less dark IMHO.
