What "A" unusual image. You saw it, you got it, and good too. The whole package is fascinating to look at.

Makes me want to grip my chair. Great dynamic angle. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Cool shot, great angle, wonderful colors, excellent composition, but...man, I feel dizzy, this hurts my eyes and brain!
But again, who says that photos shouldn't make the brain hurt?
More like this, please!

Beautiful

01/23/2006 09:59:35 PM
the tilting thing is bizarre, but for some reason it works.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 06:53:53 PM
interesting... a bit stephen king-esque.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 04:20:59 AM
Wow - this shot has a lot of impact. Love the angle chosen. The colors are great too. 10.

Normally I don't care for off-angle pics, but this one works very well indeed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 11:34:27 PM
Well Done WoW !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 05:04:50 PM
Very well done, I like the bright yellow/dull grey contrast and the tilt is very effective in this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 11:46:38 AM
Here is one where the tilt actually works. Depth of field and layout well composed. Nice shot of subject and very creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 10:29:45 PM
Very nice perspective. Almost makes me dizzy, Great effect!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 12:27:27 PM
I like this angle. Looking at this almost gives you vertigo! Well done--7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 12:19:46 PM
this is a fun picture to view. great choice of angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

what a nice take on the challenge
you just managed to implement this rather boring street into an intersting photograph.
congrats (9)

01/21/2006 11:01:45 AM
wow. very good pic. top ten for sure
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 04:29:14 AM
The first WOW of the ones I've voted on so far.
Brillaint composition and use of a single colour. I'd be proud to have taken this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 10:07:05 PM
wierd but cool perspective. nice DOf
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 07:19:21 PM
Awesome! The leading lines in this photograph are appealing, and the grainy road texture uniformly complements the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 01:02:10 PM
This is awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 10:37:41 AM

hehe.. nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 09:33:16 AM
Very original composition, I can honestly say I've never a road photographed quite like that. I think you did a great job creating a sense of motion. I feel like the inside knee of a crotch rocket rider on a curve. Great photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 06:17:03 PM
I like the color, the stripe is excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 05:53:30 PM
Extreme angle which I normally don't like, but it made me examine the photo more that I normally would, so high marks from me. Clarity is excellent, colour and road are interesting.

Really like the angle on this, and the nice shape (the intersection) the eye is led to at the bottom of the hill.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 04:16:43 PM
you have one hell of an eye. This seems like the best possible angle you could have chosen. 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 03:10:21 PM
Wow...I've seen some images taken at an angle like this (and I didn't like them) for this challenge but this one is awesome. The angle really adds to the slope of the roads at the intersection. Very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 01:46:46 PM
What a great composition. Very creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 12:44:36 PM
kool perspective and a rewarding one. It's an image that begs to be looked at for a while. Nice coloring and toning.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 12:38:14 PM
Very nice, but vertical instead of landscape would be also much better!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:41:30 AM
Fabulous shot. Great, great composition. I love the dizzying effect you have created by shooting and an angle. THe muted colours are fab too with the yellow lines leading you right into the image. Good luck!

wicked perspective

This shot makes my eyes hurt. I love how the angles stretch out the perception view. Great job
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One very interesting composition and textures -8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 03:45:03 AM
You know I was about to comment on how the angle of this photo was too extreme until I realized why you did it... Very clever, but I have a feeling a lot of people will miss that big "A" which stands out so clearly once you know where to look. Possibly would stand out more if the image was mirrored? -8-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 03:28:56 AM
very nice perspective
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 02:52:02 AM
Love the perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 02:12:45 AM
The camera tilt diminishes the senses of how steep the road is. I think that was a mistake. It would be an amazing shot straight on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 12:42:44 AM
"A" road!!!!! HEHEHEHEHEHEEHEHEHE! I like how it looks like your gonna fall off!
