Great use of light and shadow in conjunction with the architectural texture of the buildings!! Absolutely fabulous. This is one of the best photographs I've ever seen. It's interesting on all levels. Thanks for putting a smile on my face!

I really like how the different elements work together in this shot. And th e bw gives it such a somber feeling.
01/29/2003 10:12:58 PM
Excellent shot and works great in black and white. Any time you can have so many ot the elements of design incorportated in your work you are going to be successful. Good Luck. JG

Excellent photograph. Strong mark.

Very sharp! Great contrasts. Shooting from dark to light (or vice versa) is very hard, but you pulled this off very well!! I'm not fully involved with the shot (lower interest), but it's much better than the 7 I started with. 8 Swash

This is a very good shot. The lines of conposition are very nice.

Great architectural shot, excellent exposure.
01/28/2003 10:50:42 PM
This is a very well composed picture. The verticle lines of the railing work well with the oblique ones of the stairs, and the arches create a nice frame for your subject, the window. Great job.

Love this b&w, very well done, good eye.
01/27/2003 10:16:55 PM

a dramatic shot, but not all the way there.
