Shot the watertower here in Den Helder. Imagining how one could be afraid of high buildings, I shifted the hue of the blues of the image to purple. Okay, I admit, it doesn't make me scared either :-)

Don't really know what a batophobic is and I don't feel like looking it up, but the sky is cool exept for the bottom right, what heppened there?

Interesting use of color. Overall good pic. Doesn't seem to meet the challenge. "Photograph something in such a way that it conveys a personal phobia or fear to the viewer. Try to make the viewer feel the emotion of the fear."

Merry Christmas

This looks like a good one. How did you get the purple without advanced editing?
12/22/2005 08:17:36 PM
Cool sky color - is it real?

A nicely taken photo but has no link to phobia. Pity.

Unusual color change doesn't really add to fear factor. Interesting building, and I suppose I am to fear it falling over on me. Maybe, but just doesn't quite do it.

Interesting architecture and effective feeling. The color seems to be a bit overdone, but I still like it.

Wow, is that sky for real? What a bizzare color! Love this shot.

I don't like the processing you did to get the pink sky.

Were it not for the pink sky, this would be excellent. I will feel badly if I find out you live on a planet where the sky is really that color though.

I almost submitted a shot like this. I like the shot, but not the color.

The looming building sure conveys the fear. Not sure I like the purple, although the shot was probably a bit boring without it.
