higher score if there was no meshing at the top of the left column

this is a great shot, composition is strong...it would definately make a great postcard.... if I was to pick anything to look at it would be the small gap in the columns with the blue sky peeping through.... it might have been better to move your position to hide that gap.... it may not have been possible..... overall.... one of my faves this week. Godd luck, Todd.

Good tones in the stone. I think this would have benefitted from a border.

Great shot of the Jefferson Memorial. I\\\'m guessing this is albright1, you can tell me if I'm right or not. ;-)

I've seen these columns before methinks. Not sure I like this take on this building. Where'd the bottom half go? You did capture some good textures on the pillars.

magnficient and uncluttered by your text. What gorgeous composition lighting and focus and textures!

Nice low sunlight. It looks so warm and inviting. I like how the composition fills the majority of the space. I would take this same shot but try to eliminate the trees behind and try a bright blue day - could make this 10 a PERFECT 10! :)

Nice perspective, very different from the usual angles. Good job Jacko. 8.

Very professional looking. Great composition.

Good work - looks like it's actually cropped to 'postcard' dimensions too. Like the font, and the reasonable unintrusiveness of the text. Mor of a photographers postcard perhaps than a real seller, but high marks all the same.

This was my favorite and I had to give it a 10. The colors, focus and simple composition won my vote.

the netting on the left piller is distracting..the shot is sharp and well taken..would have cropped that left piller out.(8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Whooo.... those clean lines and simple composition add up to make this an awesome photo. Nice light! I give you 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2003 10:29:45 PM
Point of view is wonderful here, and you managed to capture excellent and interesting light, too! The netting is weird, and I do wish I could see the actual statue, but this is a wonderful example of good architectural photography.

this is so beautiful, I would say you got the
perfect lightning conditions for such a shot.
well done !

It's a pretty good image, but I find the pillars not being parallel to the borders of the photo rather disturbing. And somehow there seems to be something wrong with the balance between the amount of visible building and the amount of visible sky. I think you should have shown more sky or no sky at all.

VERY nice approach to this monument! By removing the most recognizable part, the dome on top, you've gotten us to pay attention to the other qualities that make it so beautiful. Also like the lighting in this one. Late afternoon?

A good shot, good postcard. I could see that this really glow with the right sunset hitting it.

Beautiful composition. I am voting on the postcards on a level of how much I would want to buy it and post it to my family. This one I would definitely buy. My first 10 so far in this challenge. Good work!

I like the text in this one, very fitting. A border might have given it a slightly more postcard feel but even without one it holds its own. Wonderful angle and great picture. The setting sun gave great lighting colors, well done.
