this is a treat

I love the perspective, the composition, the tone, the originality - and it doesn't look like you relied too much on digital editing to make it happen. Proof that simple can be beautiful.
04/11/2007 07:24:49 PM
I love it. So unique... so interesting. You've captured something really artistic here. It's beautiful!

Wonderful image! Only a little is over-exposed, hardly noticable. Composition, contrast, lines, and texture are all very cool!!

Neat, never seen a shot like this, good job. I like that you left the snow on the left in the shot.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 11:14:46 PM
Another that I am bumping up. On the second viewing this shot just gets better. Great compositon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 11:18:50 AM
great idea, minimalistic, excellent angle, good texture, light good, color ok, blacks good, whites need work but minimally, nice lines, nice movement, great comp, overall make a print available
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 08:28:57 AM
This makes an interesting pattern in the snow, which I like. I would love to know if the two rows of of lines/patterns, are either some type of animal, or maybe droplets, indents in the snow from maybe a roof above. Just wondering, as I really like these patterns in the snow... Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 12:16:14 AM
Very cool shot. I love the perspective of the shot. Nicely composed, great tones. and a wonderful subject. Good job on the exposure. Congrats on a wonderful photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 04:36:50 PM
Magical! I love the contrast between pure and cluttered and the artistic evidence of a passing animal. Top shot so far...

....and coming back for second pass, it has lost none of its charm. Moving up to my only 10 of the challenge

01/25/2006 03:30:16 PM
Simply neat. 9 here BOL
01/25/2006 11:26:19 AM
Nice artistic capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 05:55:15 PM
Cool pov, nicly spotted! Could perhaps be cropped more to get less white area on the left. All this just imo, obviously. Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 04:46:27 PM
There's something very artful about this...good eye to have captured it!

AWESOME awesome awesome.... 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 08:08:40 PM
great originality ... wish composition was more diagonally oriented rather than verticle ... hight score nonetheless!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 07:41:50 PM
cool shot from above - an angle not too many wojuld have thought to shoot this at. I like the exposure levels of the snow, along with the details.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 07:35:08 PM
VERY COOL!! (no pun intended) I love the various shades of white, blue/white, gray and black. The monochromatic theme really works. The negative space on the left is perfect for the piled up bikes on the right. Great textural variants! Love it! I'm going to bump this up to a 10. It is stunning and I keep coming back to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 05:27:29 PM
This is an excellent shot. THe composition, the colours or the lack thereof. How did you get the shot from above? Were you simply on a ladder? The only thing that kills the mood that the pic sets is the top right corner. Other than that: 10----> blue ribbon in my opinion
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:06:01 AM
Love the composition and PoV here. The combination makes it almost abstract-looking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 07:36:58 AM
So, you're going to be at the top here too, this is one of the best photos in this challenge, top 10 wouldn't surprise me, good luck.

01/18/2006 09:53:27 PM
Wonderfully composed. Most people would not have seen the beauty in this capture. You have an excellent eye.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 03:38:05 PM
I love this photo. I'm still trying to figure out exactly why I like it so much. I think it's the simplicity of it, even though it could be considered quite complex :) The point of view is the key here.. great work :) - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 10:46:52 AM
Very interesting. This grabbed my attention right away. I'm kind of distracted by the object emerging from between the tracks. I kind of wish the snow was more pristine so that the bikes were the only focus. The line of tracks nearest the bikes add interest but the other line is messier and ends up in a sort of blob at the top. I think cropping just beyond the first line of tracks would make a tighter composition, however a different mood would result.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 03:46:16 AM
Yes - this is winter! Interesting composition. Just a litte burnt out and a little tom much space with no details on the left side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 10:52:55 PM
Excellent photograph, I love the tones of this photograph. "10" from me, good luck!

very unique i like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 06:49:48 PM
Different. I like. Neat angle. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 03:25:37 PM
best use of snow in this competition. :) A great example of abstraction trumping representation, but not completely. The viewer can't forget that he's looking at bicycles, something that's made to move, not collect snow. It adds emotion to the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 02:46:06 PM
I absolutely LOVE this picture. Adding it to my faves & wishing you good luck in getting a ribbon! 10.

Super find, love this one.

This is fabulous, ricj and silky and mysterious. Pefect tonalities. Probably too austere to do really well, but you have my help :-)

incredible 10

Who would think of a shot like this? I think it's awesome! You've got a very creative eye!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 03:07:46 PM
Very interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 02:45:28 PM
beautiful detail, peculiar, intriguing yet obviously natural scene, minimalist approach to color and well balanced shades...

I prefer when I don't recognize the photographs in the challenges, including this one, but well, finding here one of my favorites (wait, it somehow dissapeared from my list!)... 10, though cloning over those footprints could make it even better (s.t. like 10,8 :-)
