WOW! thanks for all the great comments peeps I'm really chuffed.

After trailing Larus by what seemed like a tenth or two through the week the rollover really helped me (31 from 3 voters) and is my EQUAL highest vote. I'll do my best in the LoD Larus but have dropped 1 full point since this morning.

@ jent, eagle eyes there and your most likely right as I cropped the border at the last minute on the final version rather than a copy.

Well congratulations on beating me in the first week of the season 2 of the, you beat me fair and square, I have no excuses and did the best I could in this challenge. Funny how a rollover can change things, I was at 6.85 when I went asleep yesterday about 4 hours before rollover :)

I firmly count on you to take this whole league now, you got to if you are going to let me save some face.

oh no is this one starring Bruce Willis? cheap sci-fi
(great poster though..well done)

Well, I love the subject, the point-of-view, the terrific tonal range & treatment, and the processing. Plus of course the splendid title. It's a science-fiction movie, set in a mining community on a distant asteroid or moon, and I'd be unlikely to see it. I'd try to souvenir one of the posters, though. 8.

Wow! The ultramodern buildings and cool postprocessing give almost a cartoonish surreal feel. Well done.

Artistic in the extreme!!!! Always a plus for me.

Wow, that's some pretty serious angle and perspective. Lots of great detail to look at also. Very nice!

This is simply great. Great point of view and I like the green color a lot. Well done!

Great angle and tone

This is the sequel to Minority Report, right? It would be better if we could see Tom Cruise swinging by on a spiderweb, but I understand we all have limited resources. Great slick effect on the picture, though you might turn off a few people with that title! Not me, though. I want to get to the theater and find out what this conundrum is all about and how Mr. Cruise is going to solve it.

Great perspective - I will now have to go for a walk around the Lloyds building to find it!
