Great title!

Now this says City Life to me. I think it just needs a little more contrast.

Excellent execution of a common subject. I really, really like this one.

The most photographed intersection on the planet? Nice perspective. Maybe I'd have gone for a more dramatic view up from below? 6 sjgleah

Very bright/vivid, with extremely good focus. (I like your camera) I especially like the pidgeons, nice touch. Photo 9 City 9 total 9

Nice clarity and colors. Does it depict what it is like to live in the city, or city life? Yeah, I think it does. City life is chaotic and busy, and multitasking, and ... and.... :-)
Nice triange effect: My eye goes from the statue to the large sign on the right (eye), to the signs with pigeons.

This is very cool. If it was later at night it would be a bit like a scene from "Bladerunner".

dont get much more city than that
06/26/2002 08:55:00 PM
Sure says a lot about city life!

No matter how great the hero, they all have their pigeons. It looks like the statue is holding the standard for the street light like a balance pole.

Very good. Lots of potential here for different angles. Slightly more street might have been interesting.

i think the focus of this shot should have been shifted a bit. i think the signs at the right side are mesmerizing and give a very "blade runner" futuristic metropolis look to it. if you could have focused more on those, you may have been able to capture something very unique.

Excellent composition! It shows a very good eye for finding the right angle. It's so busy that the composite is solidly the subject, yet the the statue seems to tie it all together.

GREAT city photo ! WOW @ the birds on that sign ! A little level to increase color is the only thing I can say might help. That girl on the Kodak sign really adds to this busy city life photo !
06/24/2002 08:33:00 PM
I want to be there someday.

I like this - talk about the city going to the birds...haha I know korny remark. Is this NY? W 46th and what..can't really tell what the sign says..broadway? eh, that doesn't really matter. There is a lot going on in this photo. It's one of those you keep going back to, and finding something new each time. GREAT (I really need to use a thesaurus).
06/24/2002 05:17:00 PM
Wow.....this is a fun well done shot. I like it very much. Kee
06/24/2002 03:58:00 PM
This is certanaly city life,.. i might have adjusted the levels down a bit. it seems a bit washed out.. nice shot
06/24/2002 03:00:00 PM
Where is the life? Is it a birds life in the city? Your title doesn't hint at that but its what I see in this photo based on the challenge.
06/24/2002 02:22:00 PM
Good use of no-center, no-subject to convey the chaos of the city. I feel a bit assaulted, and want to escape into that small patch of sky.
06/24/2002 12:21:00 PM
nice... why didn't you show just the statue with the peagons? and the biilboards in the back? : )
