Thanks for the great feedback everyone!

Well, I'm pretty chuffed with how well my first entry did, especially considering the fact that I only bothered taking two photos (The first was out of focus, and once I took the second one I immediately liked it). My only regret is not having spent more time processing the raw image to see if I could avoid the blown-out areas of the image. Oh well, live and learn. Perhaps I'll spot-edit it if I ever make a print to hang on the wall.

Very smart with that critical view and lighting to give this image a highly artistic feel while remaining totally faithful to the classical style. Outstanding effort. Bump.

Very original idea and great result. Lighting is just right.

The title spoils the fun of working it out. The picture's spot-on, though.

Great idea - would have liked it lighter but really like it

Cool! The off-angle and off-center of the triangle bug me a bit, but good idea and good shot!

Awesome shot.. my eyes are going mental trying to fathom it... righto think my brain undersstands now.. not a big building as i first thaught...

Very engaging shot... brillant use of light (and dark)..

I think the shot would be improved
(1) if the triangle was centered...
(2) rotated so the top side of the triangle is parallel with the top...
(3) had a less obvious title.. i think it is more intreguing when it is just abstract shapes!

Great photo though! 9

Wow! Great use of chairs! Good abstract shot. (Thank you for telling me they are chairs, I spend way too much time trying to figure out what it is on some of these abstracts). I like this in every way. great lighting and position. 10

Unusual angle that's worked out rather well. Good job.

A couple of boring old chairs. WOW you made them look realy nice. Spectacular use of lighting and shadows. You turned what would have score most people a 3 into an awsom shot worthy of an 8 great job. My only moplaint is the yellow light spot on the left chair.

very clever use of ordinary objects and moody lighting

One of the most original shots of this challenge. I love the muted tones, the tones of wood. The off centered composition suits the abstract nature of the photo. 9

Terrific picture, one of my favorites. Good luck

Wonderfully abstract, yet solid and warm at the same time

This is a great shot... the lighting and perspective and super. 10.

It's really dark and kind of hard to see what you are getting at. Good concept though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The design lends itself to a high energy factor. One of my top 10 shots. Very nicely made.

very nice but too dark.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2005 02:20:07 AM
It's a beautiful shot. I love how you play with the light and shadow. The only minor flaw to me are the slightly overexposed areas on the left chair. Very nice work though.

I like the wood grains and gradients, but the coloration in the bright spots is odd.
