OMG I love this shot! I'm saddened because it surely deserves higher. Well done! :)

Just rediscovered this one. I'm really surprised this didn't do better. It was one of my high picks. Simply excellent sense of composition here, magnificent depth, terrifically moody shot.

awesome!

I knew it, this is awesome. I love the burning around the edges

Indeed deserved higher, I think this shot is excellent! There's a lot to be read from the person in the back like he doesn't like the rain! (maybe even boredom due to a rainy day?). Keep up the good work!

I still stand by my first comment. This is really interesting and different. Nice choice of subject matter!

Interseting set of reactions to this shot J: thought it deserved a higher placing than this, although that burn ...

i like the darkness, and the scene itself is rather curious. it was a 10 for me.

Beautiful shot. I love the sepia/b&w tone,

Ah, I wish I had just a fraction of the talent that is in this shot - composition, focus, color, mood, ... it's very, very nice. Thanks for entering this.

for some reason this image really hits me, and I really hope you do well. I like the slight green tint to the whole thing, and I also like the grain in the shadows. I don't really care for the crop, but thats just my opinion. Bumped up.

i really like the composition and mood. i think you're on the right track as far as the dodging/burning, but it could use a little more work.

Great shot. Love the grunge feel. Very emotive.

don't see any rain

Such a dynamic compostion...I really like the depth and "drama" of this image...very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting, dirty image - love the feel of it, very expressive. The areas you appear to have darkened seems a brutal effect - perhaps a touch heavy--handed? Not enough feathering? Nothing else in frame seems to go quite a black as those areas ... and the overlap with the umbrella makes it plainly editing. Outside of that reservation though, a much more intriguing image than most

interesting. not sure how i feel about the darkening around the bottom....but i definately love the tones you chose here. good luck :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hmmm... a bit too much burn for my taste. I like the concept of the image but the colors just aren't as appealing IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good composition and use of duotone, but blending of the dark umbrella panels and the dark background bothers me (and no, it's not my monitor, it's calibrated)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2005 01:21:55 PM
this looks verry good but that black part of it is weird and I don't understand it's purpose other than to hide something. I think a 3x2 crop at the top even if you only keep half the umbrella would be much better.

Good compostion. I like how the umbrella is up in foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

An interesting and effective composition, also a little weird and quirky (which I like very much). 7

Great perspective, toning and subject matter. Hard vignetting works well, but it is strange that only three corners are covered by this. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful image and nicely toned. The figure in the back is a nice touch and well composed. I do think the halo effect, especially around the bottom, is a bit overdone.

amazing frame, i really like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2005 10:50:15 AM
arty and cool, I'm giving it a 10

Very nice composition and balance. I love the darker tones here, too. 8

Striking pic excellent composition great
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very rainy feel to this. I like the tone and placement of subjects.

Not at all convinced by the PP.

I'm gonna say this is Jason's... if i'm wrong... well then that's just humiliating. Great shot nonetheless (even if you aren't jason) --- great tones and great dodging and burning.

excellant use of perspective
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The thumbnail on this one even grabbed my attention. Very smart composition. I like your treatment of the image. Has a very interesting feel to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 01:17:02 AM
Very cool. Love the rich darkness. The contrast on the umbrella and the guy's hat and clothes is nice. Interesting perspective makes you take a second look.
