Hey Reza...

Fantastic work.... You dared and got it... it also remind me of a scene at the marina where I keep my sail boat.. on a beautiful sunset day coming into the harbor, a group of people were standing on the wakebraker.... took the picture and I could only see silhouette against the sky... again yours is much much better.

10/11/2006 02:46:36 PM
Great image, congrats on your first ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2006 12:42:23 PM
I like this, it's different from what you see most of the time on DP. It has a graphic feel. Reminds me of this pic I've taken a year ago, although I feel that yours is much better:

Congratulations! Looking at your portfolio - you were due in this challenge since you seem to have the BW/ High Contrast thing down! Great work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2006 12:34:59 AM
High contrast isn't something the voters like but couple that with a great use of negative space which voters do like and bam, ribbon. Congrats.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great use of negative space! I really like the disparate selection of people included in the image and the way that their minute size in the overall frame communicates something about their relevance, their importance to the wider world or universe. Great pic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2006 03:29:26 PM
This is destined to take its place among the iconic images at DPC. The best use of negative space that I've seen here. Perfect! 10

Excellent.
I love what you have done here. Interesting how you've composed with 5 pairs and a lone person to grab attention. Would love to see it blown really big and on a wall. I know I am going to enjoy looking at it and .. thinking ..
