Wow. Great shot -- the sun behind the building and clouds works AWESOME. I think an auto-level work `nicen` up the building a bit. This is one of my favorite, but I don't execpt to see it in the top 10. =/

contrast could be stretched a bit for this one - seems quite grey

I like it howyou captured the clouds accentuating the shape of the the tower, but I think the darkness of the tower is dominating the picture too much. I woluld have liked it better with more sky on the right.

I'm partial to monumental pieces...this is nice. I like the contrast of gray to darker grey. Might have liked a little more white clouds, but, hey, nature doesn't always cooperate, does it?

The Dark Tower is just too dark!

need better control of tonalities.

I like the shape of the tower and the way it's edged by clouds.

Either a touch more exposed to show the details of the building more OR a touch less exposed to make it more of a sihouette would have made it more effective for me.

Foreboding! Nice shot!

Ominious. but a little dark... I guess that was the effect you were looking for?
06/04/2002 04:00:00 PM
Yes, it is dark...

Too dark a tower...

Glad there's a little detail (windows) in that black. The sky is nice and dramatic, almost as if the bldg is giving off steam or getting ready for ignition. IMO, some positive gamma adjustment to bring the windows out just a little more (you could always punch up the blacks if they lose density), would make the big dark area a little more interesting.

I hope you had Gandalf along with you for "protection" ...

Tower too dark.

Very cool! The creepy lighting immediately brings scary things like Stephen King to mind. Although this building probably looks ultra-ordinary in daylight, the photo is all about the lighting and you did it wonderfully! It makes me question whether I'd step inside or not! Good job!

this building looks like its creating its own weather sytem
06/03/2002 04:09:00 PM
Neat shot.

It seems as though you are going for a silouhette effect, if so increased contrast would have helped.

Another one that is too dark for my tastes, I want to see more detail in the building that tells me why it is so special.
