This is a very cool library at Princeton U. Taken during my GTG with 21.gif george917. Thanks for showing me around Princeton, George!

Alright Neil - good work during your visit to campus! Perfect chance to use the new fisheye. I work just a yards from this building. It used to be the main library on campus, until the built Firestone in the 1940s.

Aww, man! You should've met up with us when we were there!

Apparently no one uses way cool libraries anymore, which is kinda sad as this is an AWESOME place! Great use of the fisheye.

Excellent interpretation Neil. Very well deserved ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Now THIS is a great use for a fisheye lens!
It's just so hard to use it effectively, and this image with the title just brings it home!
Would be a double winner also in the Perspective :)

Congrats Neil, no vote below 4, awesome!

Awesome image. One of my top two picks of the challenge. Love the perspective and the B/W conversion. Congrats on the red!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Are you using a 3rd party application for your B&W conversion? I love the look and have longed to know how to capture that contrasty look, but don't know if I have the tools to do it.

Delighted to see this on the front page! Congratulations.

I love this capture of lines and curves. Interesting contrasts. I like the almost cartoon like effect that you have here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Loving the composition, but the processing feels a tad artificial.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2010 05:51:07 PM
Nice perspective and patterns - good title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2010 03:25:11 PM
Clever and well done. The b/w conversion is, of course, entirely appropriate.
