Plaza Hotel, Oslo. The hotel is reflecting some darkish clouds that had just blown over. A more interesting sky behind the camera might have helped...

Wow, nice going! Congrats. Love that glint of sun on the one heel. Would have gotten a nice score from me had I voted.

Swimming through the sky. :) wish the lighting weren't quite so harsh. May have been better if you had captured this when the sun were lower in the sky.

Boy, this looks familiar. I'm sure I've seen it elsewhere on DPC. Nice perspective, though.

Your composition really shows perspective. Definitely very good that way. Not sure that the really dark shadows on the divers are a good thing.

This is interesting. I like what you were going for. Some small problems for me, though, the building in the backround is more of a distraction than anything. That probably couldn't be fixed though so that's hardly your fault. Maybe a different time of day could have helped a bit, too. I find myself wishing the sky divers were either less shadowed, or had less reflection.

Nice perspective though, which is the name of the challenge, so I commend you on that. Very nice placement, gives a feeling of motion like they are zipping past.
