Cropped to ensure a level alignment.

This is a really great shot. You realize of course that this is now the highest ranking Canon Powershot S30 photo... I hate that. Now I have to work on getting a score higher than 7.428! It won't be easy, but I know the "little camera that could" is up to the task... Just not so sure about the photographer :)

Congrats on first place!

Cracking shot, well done.

I had a feeling this was you, xertion. Your other ribbon shot had quite the similar style. Congrats on the win.

One of two favourites in this challenge. Well done to find this object. Perfect in b&w and the focus is good too. Composition can´t be better. Good luck!

Beautiful image. Perfect symmetry entry. You've done an excellent job of capturing the detail and moodiness of the grey, cloudy sky against the glass building.

Nice symmetry. I like the reflections.
03/31/2003 09:11:16 PM
Nearly perfect. -9-
03/31/2003 06:36:18 PM
NOOOOOOOOO!!! You made such a great picture but it's TILTED to the right!!! Actually it's not tilted now that I look at it more, you needed to move over to the left about 5 to 10 feet before shoting. This is really great. If it were perfectly aligned I'd give a perfect 10. Like this... a 9.

Good angle here
03/31/2003 04:18:01 PM
Greyscale works well with this image. Nice composition and content. My only criticism, and this is minor, is that you are ever so slightly off on "true" symmetry. There is more on the left side than the right.

This is an excellant image, good photograph of its own accord and meets the challenge nicely.

Lovely reflections. Would look wicked if it was in colour with a bright blue sky. Is this a building in downtown Toronto?
