Not sure what it has to do with city life?
07/01/2002 02:03:00 PM
to have this explained.
someone asked in the forums on how would one capture rape - in regards to city life.
i do hope that clears up the connection that i had in my mind. :)

Thought provoking shot.
06/30/2002 05:53:00 PM
"City Life" or not..... I like this picture.
06/30/2002 04:29:00 PM
superb photography but don't get the city life connection
06/30/2002 02:14:00 PM
Not sure what it has to do with city life... but a very good picture nevertheless
06/30/2002 01:22:00 PM
Awesome shot, the DOF and focal point are great... I'm just not sure how it represents city life.
06/29/2002 08:47:00 PM
Impressive! My first 10!
06/29/2002 05:13:00 PM
Very nice image... but why? and what about the city am I seeing here? 4 sjgleah
06/28/2002 09:04:00 PM
The effect is beautiful, being able to capture the image and the subject, it makes a person feel warm and subtle looking through the reflections of an adult eye with an image of a kid..it reminds us that there's a little kid inside everyone of us and that it has groomed us for what we are today
06/28/2002 06:58:00 PM
Very interesting!
06/28/2002 05:54:00 AM
I LOVE this photo. I couldn't possibly give it less than 10. Very good work. I bet you'll win :)
06/27/2002 08:11:00 PM
Wow! Really creative interpretation of this challenge.
06/27/2002 05:41:00 PM
Not sure how this reflects the topic, although I do like the pic!
06/27/2002 01:44:00 PM
it's a beautiful picture, but I don't think it has anything to do with city life.
06/27/2002 12:38:00 PM
Excelent photopraph, I love the use of shallow DOF to draw attention to the subject. My ten this week.
06/27/2002 01:09:00 AM
Wow. That's pretty damn amazing. Your focus and amazing display of textures are incredible. I'm giving it an 8, only because I can't stretch enough to see the 'city life' in the shot...
06/26/2002 08:46:00 PM
awesome .. prolly the best pic in the challenge. great imagination!
06/26/2002 06:36:00 PM
I don't get your title or how this photo fits with this challenge, my bad, but I do love your photo! This is so very interesting and well done. This would have been perfect (and a leader for winner) in either the reflections or shadows challenge. Nice shot! Photo 10 City 6 total 8
06/26/2002 06:18:00 PM
The city aspect is a little week but this is a very powerful and well executed shot. Big, clear buildings rising up behind your silhouette would have made it a ten in my book.

8 -Tim
06/26/2002 05:18:00 PM
Does the reflection really convey the feeling you were going for? This is a good shot though.
06/26/2002 03:13:00 PM
without the title I wouldn't guess this as a city life photo - however I think this is a very nice shot
06/26/2002 12:04:00 PM
Lovely capture of a mood, makes me want to see what the person is seeing. Shame the bottom of the iris is slightly clipped out.
06/26/2002 07:47:00 AM
great shoot but what was the subject again
06/26/2002 12:02:00 AM
Like pic but I don't see what it has to do with city life really. Is there a city reflected in the eye? If so I can't see it but the shot is good.
06/25/2002 08:45:00 PM
How does this have anything to do with City Life? It's an AMAZING picture, but I don't see how it relates to the challenge?
06/25/2002 07:23:00 PM
not feeling the relevance.
06/25/2002 05:42:00 PM
Nice shadows shot, but I don't get the city life.
06/25/2002 04:07:00 PM
The clearest glass Ive ever seen (7)
06/25/2002 03:08:00 PM
Another stretch for the current category. I guess you're trying to say that some people can be paranoid living in the city. It's an awesome shot, but you may lose points for the stretch in fit.
06/25/2002 01:13:00 PM
ummm wow. Great photo... probably a bit departed from the challenge topic, but I'm going to give it a good score anyway
06/25/2002 12:43:00 PM
great shot. i'm not even going to attempt to analyze this, but i'd love to hear your thoughts behind it. very well done.
06/25/2002 12:19:00 PM
This is an excellent shot. What camera did you use and how did you get so close so clearly.
06/25/2002 07:46:00 AM
One of the prettiest pictures of the week, truly superb... But not enough on the topic... I would have granted this a 9/10 one week ago in the "shadows" challenge, but only 7/10 for now...
06/25/2002 03:44:00 AM
Cool message, Good shot. "9" for creativity. Dogman;-)
06/25/2002 01:36:00 AM
Great shot. I don't, however, think it resonates with the theme of city life. I guess I have a hard time when titles are used to "fill in" for the theme... I still like the shot, though....nice imagery.
06/24/2002 11:39:00 PM
very creative - life within life in the city
06/24/2002 11:32:00 PM
You will totally be one of the top 3 winners. Early congrats on a picture that is very creative!! 10
06/24/2002 10:31:00 PM
Very cool. I'd be more paranoid if there was a whole silohuette. Great job. 9
06/24/2002 09:18:00 PM
Beautiful photo ! I guess living in the city can make someone paranoid !
06/24/2002 08:24:00 PM
Sweet shot. It seems a little dark though.
06/24/2002 08:06:00 PM
Very cool shot. Would have been great for this week's challenge.
06/24/2002 06:50:00 PM
I had to change my vote (higher) once I realized what I was looking at. Very easy to miss, excellent now that I know...
06/24/2002 05:10:00 PM
Clever work....could be a tad bit lighter IMHO. Kee
06/24/2002 04:27:00 PM
What a good capture. Powerful shot.
06/24/2002 04:07:00 PM
Wonderful approach to this challenge!
06/24/2002 03:38:00 PM
Ack! Spooky... I doubt my monitor is doing it the justice it deserves, but even so, it's... well... deep. I would have liked to see it with a lower crop. I'll be very interested to hear what setting you used to do this.
06/24/2002 02:59:00 PM
Without your title I wouldn't be able to figure out how this fits the challenge. WIthout the challenge, I would think this is a great photo.
06/24/2002 01:50:00 PM
Too cool. I really like it. Definately caught me 'eye' haha. Great job! (I need to use a thesaurus)
06/24/2002 12:41:00 PM
nice... : ) but where's the city? oh I see paranoia is a...
06/24/2002 12:02:00 PM
Not sure how this relates to City Life.
06/24/2002 11:59:00 AM
what kind of lense is this, however, i dont see how this is relevant to City Life
06/24/2002 11:54:00 AM
Outstaning work!!! I love the reflections and the composition! Very well done!
06/24/2002 08:04:00 AM
I like it.. but I want more city.
06/24/2002 04:29:00 AM
I like it, but .. "city life"?
06/24/2002 01:47:00 AM
This photo is great, too bad its so sad
06/24/2002 01:19:00 AM
06/24/2002 12:50:00 AM
hmmmm now where have I seen this before ;) Nice work again olya.
06/24/2002 12:31:00 AM
This is a beautifully executed photo.. I love the concept here.. I don't see much 'city life' in it though... = 5 - jmsetzler
