Last day... still climbing somewhat which is nice.

Broke 6.7, next vote dropped it back to 6.69. Should end up front page for my profile anyway.

Had hopes of a ribbon on this one, then I voted. Plus with these low entry count challenges, you can end up with a high 6 and still not make the top 5, so this might not even make top 10.

I think I see the top 3 in my votes, will be interesting to see what happens tonight.

Oh well... 90 mins to go and the last many votes have been apparent 6s driving it down to a 6.63

Looking at this for a second time. I do like the colors much- (I am thinking that if you step back from the composition a bit, it might have worked a bit better including the bottom right intersection of the railing and window wall. -but only a minor thought).

Great geometry, and that little red carpet area at the end is wonderful.

This was a 10 for me - I just loved it. Nice finish - I would have liked to have seen it higher. Congratulations on the top 10.

Great use of the fisheye lens. Interesting reflections and then that burst of color at the far end of the lobby. This and another got my top scores. Congrats on the top ten finish.

Love the lens choice and distortion - the walls literally wrap around the lobby. Clearly meets the challenge and I love the processing. Top five. Voted earlier.

I gave this a 7, in spite of all else. I'd like it a lot more if the fisheye curves were not there, but it's a difficult scene to photograph. You've done well. 7

The fisheye perspective really adds a lot to this. Great job.
