I agree this is a little overpowering for a minimalist theme.

sorry, I can't understand what "overpowering" refers to... the picture is nice, though the sky is full of stains (is that the effect of overpowering?)

the shot feels a little crooked, could maybe be fixed with a free transform

There is nothing minimal in this picture as I see it... But Good picture never the less. Not suitable for this competition.

I am not sure about how this shot works for minimalism. Is the bird getting overpowered by all the buildings? If so, IMO the buildings are simply way too prominent for this to work in "minimalism". And, they are a very strong part of the story told here. I think the concept is good, and the picture quite lovely, but as an entry to minimalism I don't think it really works.

Looking at this photograph, I wouldn't have ever thought that the bird was the subject, if it was not for the theme.

But anyway, I liked the shot. And one thing I think may have improved it a little would be to have the shot titled down more, so we could see the street, sidewalk, etc. It just seems off the way you have it. 5.

i see what you were going for but your subject just doesnt stand out in all the structures

I assume you will be hearing this a lot, but I don't know what your subject is here, so I don't feel this meets the challenge. If it's the black thing in the center (bird?), the photo really doesn't work well, because the eye just doesn't naturally gravitate to the bird. Instead, it feels like a shot of buildings lining a street, with a bird that just happened to fly thru.

nice concept - too indistinct

I don't know what to look at here. Oh wait now I see it's a bird right? Cool.
04/27/2005 10:07:07 PM
this photo could be a little clearer... maybe use 'curves' and the little droppers to set the white balance using the clouds

is that the main subject in the sky? i cant tell what it is
04/27/2005 04:32:40 PM
I think this is a bit too cluttered for the challenge.
04/27/2005 12:45:00 PM
Is this a bird? If the black thing in the center is supposed to be the main focus, I am confussed. I don't know what it is, and I find the other elements in the picture to distracting.

the HOTEL sign gets my attention in this shot...gl

Your title stole my comment. A bit too dark and busy - I see what you were trying to express though. Good effort.
