A well-deserved ribbon. This is one of the best of its kind IMHO. The fish-eye was a good choice of lens. The colors and composition are magnificent.

Great use of the fisheye on one of my favorite streets in one of my favorite cities.

Congrats on the rib2.gif Louis. First of many I expect.
A fine example of how clean a low-resolution shot can be and what point of view can do in a shot!

So I didn't have to go far to find yours in this contest. Congrats, dude! Ribbon #1 of many more to follow, I'm sure!

What makes the shot (and I'm sure you already know this) is the gold. It's still be good shot without it, but not as good. Nice use of the ol' fisheye - you're having fun with that, aren't you? Congrats again! Great picture, great finish.
