Hi Arie!

So sorry I did not get to vote on your shot. You did a great job of interpreting the challenge with the seven row houses. The sky is a bit off as I can see red in the clouds. Contrast is nice and focus is fairly sharp. Too bad about the little bit of roof on the left side which interferes with the overall flow of one house to the next. Overall, great job and congrats on your high score!

Thanks :) Arie

Well-composed, good color and sharpness. And an original idea. My only suggestion is to maybe take a little bit off the left side so the picture stops right at the edge of the house. Nice job.

Great subject. Interesting to show two different ages of a city, with the more modern building in the background.

I like the contrast between the homes and the city behind it, also the way the houses really stand out from the background.

nice lines and comp. but, weren't you really taking secret pics of the transamerica building? don't the SF cops beat people up for taking pics of it? :^)
