Challenge: Right Angles (Classic Editing)
Collection: Architecture
Camera: Sony DSC-F707
Location: New York City, NY
Date: Aug 1, 2003
Aperture: f 3.2
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/6
Galleries: Abstract, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Aug 5, 2003

This is the inside of my NYC hotel: the Marriott Marquis. As I was shooting the picture, a couple security guards ran over to me, hands on gun holsters, and barked at me to put my camera away. As I had a few seconds before they got to me, I pretended that I figured they were accosting someone else and went ahead and took the shot. When they arrived, I was slowly putting my camera away, and I said, "Are you talking to me?" They made it clear to me that they were, and I looked very compliant as I walked to the elevator.

Hi David

Well done on the ribbon - well deserved!

But do you think this has improved on your good work or not? I think it looks more dynamic:

Obviously, cropped from your already cropped image - and apologies if this irritates you. ;)

Congratulations, David! I love the yellow/orange, it's beautiful. How did you get the picture so clear top to bottom, in particular without a tripod?

Congrats! Very slick, nicely done.

Lovely shot - great use of angles, colour and composition. It's getting to be a sad world when we can't even take pictures in a public place without being suspected of nefarious intentions.
Congratulations on your 1st place.

Glad you weren't arrested. You'd best be framing this, David. I really like the lines in this - challenge aside it's a great photo with an abstract quality to it. You've a got a great eye.

Now that's a low score for a blue - bet you're surprised to see this. Excellent work - and the best kind of revenge on the loony security guards :-) congratulations.

Great angle on the angles :) The contrast of the colors really pop! Amazing!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2003 04:16:37 AM
I love the design in this shot. Great colours and composition. One point - I wonder if you'd rotated, until the vertical 'line' was 90 degrees, whether that would have made the shot neater? I think the design would have been even stronger as a pattern, making it more difficult to discern the subject. [9]

I love abstracts. This one is fabulous.

Cool perspective. Great right angles. It looks almost abstract. Nicely done.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/07/2003 07:53:06 AM
Lovely right angles with no major distortion. There is a nice texture to it too. Great colour. Would love to know where it is or see an original.

only if you had not chopped the corner in the bottom most rung [7]

Picture is hypnotic. What is this a picture of? The composition is very good. Wonder how the picture would look like in B&W. I like the yellow though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/07/2003 12:17:57 AM
Don't know what it is but I love it. :) Very very cool. Love this. 9.

beautiful color and geometry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 09:07:20 PM
There's nothing I can think of that would improve this image. The corner line leads the viewer up and up and up and the yellow just give this image a ton of impact. Great capture. 10

bravo (or brava whatever the case might be)!

Whoa - knock out stuff. Nailed it - I'm hugely impressed. If this doesn't win I'll eat my hat.

PS. don't actually have a hat, but hey.

This is so well taken that it is an optical illusion. NO flaws here. 10

i like that there's no scale to this

08/06/2003 01:55:53 AM
Wow. Interesting image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 01:51:43 AM
I like the change in shade, andhow the angles seem to radiate out. Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2003 01:20:24 AM
My second favourite. You deserve a ribbon. Simple, yet very powerful. You definitely met the challenge. I can't find anything wrong other than maybe you could make your image even bigger for more powerful effect. 10
