Seems waaaay over-sharpened. Otherwise nicely framed.

Nice idea! Would be even nicer if you hadn't zoomed in so much. Somehow the image of a lonesome colorful umbrella on long wall of uniform and grey balconies in my mind now ;-) The barbed wire (?) in the front is distracting but I guess you couldn't do anything about it.

I think you would have had something really cool here, but I have to admit, the jaggies in this are so bad that I can't think of a reason you'd want to do it and have to assume your camera is REALLY low end. I like the relativelty mute colors except for the bright splash of the umbrella -- also like the fun colors versus the sharp barbed wire in the foreground. Like I said, good composition, but not the best quality.

Very nice. The barbed wire in the near corner is a distraction though, at least to me.

I REALLY like the harshness of the barbed wire along with the bright umbrella

Another over sharpened photo? I like the composition.

This pic allows for deeper thoughts on the contrasts of city life...

weird filter. im not sure i like it, although i like the picture itself. the composition angles and color are all very intriguing, esp the barbed wire

Interesting presentation. It might have been a little more effective if the razor wire was a little more in focus.

A little wierd on the edges of the railing, but overall I like this image. I think the constantine wire really add's to the theme.

I like this photo quite a bit except for the barbed wire. this photo also seems to be displaying some amount of jpeg compression artifacts or possibly signs of enlargement from its original size. There is some pixelation and jagged edges on the diagonals in this image. = 5 - jmsetzler

Great photo. I very much like the color effect the umbrella has in the photo. Well done.

Kinda scary with all the razor wire....interesting shadows (hey, wasn't that last week?) Is the message scary city life? Photo 5 City 6 total 6

Might of looked better if it was in focus. Sorry it's not showing much and really OOF. Kee

I like the contrast between the razor wires and the nice serene balcony.
06/24/2002 01:37:00 PM
What a tremendous shot. I would love to see the full resolution version. The razor wire is bonkers.
06/24/2002 12:15:00 PM
I like this shot. I'm not sure if the texture is on purpose or accidental but it adds character.
06/24/2002 11:49:00 AM
nice, why does the image seem distorted? (pixelated)
06/24/2002 09:33:00 AM
Like the color, however, the barb wire is kind of out of place
06/24/2002 04:28:00 AM
real bad jaggies
06/24/2002 12:37:00 AM
This is a very nice photo, but it's only half the size you're allowed. I really like the composition though.
