Flott mynd!
Sá hins vegar svipaða mynd eftir Árna Torfason á mbl.is um dagin, en þessi kemur líka mjög vel út í B&W.

noh, til hamingju með árangurinn, þú virðist heilla lýðinn...

frábært, ég er ekki sammála að þessi mynd sé einsog aðrar af Hallgrímskirkju, þessi er þannig að manni líður einsog kirkjan haldi manni hreinlega í faðmi sínum eða eitthvað álíka. Frábært.

Gangi þér vel í framhaldinu.

Magnificent architecture, very Gothic looking, and your point of view and composition does this structure justice; also beautiful black and white tonal range - 9

Beautifully done. Makes me both homesick (I grew up around the corner from Hallgrímskirkja) and longing for a wide-angle lens!

Looks like a scene from LOTR. Great angle and composition. A very powerful presentation.
Excellent work.

If the landmark were desaturated, and the sky were left blue, I think that this photo would have been more eye-catching. As it it, this is a good shot.

Great rustic tones, ideal cloudy sky and a winning angle. Bumping up.

Color would have really improved this photo.
12/10/2004 03:46:02 PM
You shot is a good example of how perspective can make or break a photograph. Their is nothing extra ordinary about your photograph but with your perspective it made a very good photograph. I love the lines, shadows, and lighting. Good Shot!

Interesting composition and nice focus. I think this might have had more impact in color. 6.

Love the perspective & the lighting. It looks like something out of Lord Of The Rings

Really like the perspective used in this photograph. The lines of the wall leading one's eye up the tower. Great in b&w.

I do not know what Hallgrimskirkja means, but will look forward to finding out at the end of the challenge. This is a very emotional picture the B&W is a perfect choice, really draws you in. Very Nice one of my favorites.

What a fantastic DOF and perspective used here. This is an awe-inspiring photo. Couldn't improve a thing. I also think that the border is a perfect match and well done.

Very impressed by the way the columns lead the eye up, up and away! Good job!

I love this composition and the dynamic light distribution. 9

What a beautiful church and angle. B&W works very well in this image, you have reached the full spectrum of light with the clouds at one end of the scale to the dark left corner on the other. If there is anything to nitpick on, it might be the right top corner which feels a little unnaturally dark, a smoother transition would have worked better imho. GJ

Cool shot...too bad I can't pronounce it! I like the angle, composition and choice of b/w here.

Aha...Iceland. Very nice and powerfull b&w capture.

Very good composition and menacing mood. Small criticism....Perhaps not enough contrast. the grey looks a litle flat??
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent perspective, love the shadows, it does look a little blown out around the clouds on the left - and the burning (If thats what you did) in the top right makes it almost look splotchy - but that's all just nitpicking - 10.

Beautiful shot of a Reykjavik landmark. B& W makes it look very dramatic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent composition. Great tones - works well in b&w. Almost gives me a feeling of a roller coaster on the up sweep.

Very nice composition, the all draws my eye in and to the tower, nice angle.
