After Challenge: Wow, 2nd! My first ribbon in 2 years almost! I really didn't expect that when I had 5.5 for the whole first day. By day 3 was was scraping 6, and then I went up slowly from there! I moved from 6.82 to 6.93 at rollover too, yay! So to everyone who is disappointed with their score on a Wednesday morning, don't lose hope! :)

Oh, and damn those dust spots!!

Congratulations. I love the dark blue tone of the sky and I'd really appreciate it if you can tell me how you get it that way.

Wow! Your first ribbon since I joined! Welcome back to the winner's circle at last! The lighting here is exceptionally good, what we used to call "fully descriptive" in architectural photography-speak.

Hmm, I like it although I don't have a clue what it is...

Love the contrast of the blues against the white and the not knowing what the structure is I am left feeling intrigued... Well done.

Very cool. Did you use a polarizer filter? Good job, the structure really pops against the deep blue sky.
