Challenge: Urban Landscapes (Classic Editing)
Camera: Pentax Optio S
Location: DSS Headquarters, Leeds
Date: Oct 7, 2003
Aperture: F3.5
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1
Galleries: Cityscape, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Oct 3, 2003

Almost exactly from the camera, only a gamma adjustment, slight levels adjustment, and sharpening. This is the ridiculously lavish DSS headquarters in Leeds. This is not the view from the front, in fact I only noticed this view because I was looking for pictures. It's not easy to get to this point because of the lack of pavements and very busy dual carriageways. Daft architects...

This photo was one of the first I noticed when I came to DPC and it was one of the ones that motivated to really learn more about this art. I am also a lover of art deco and streamline moderne, which this invokes so much.

maybe it's just my head, but the title, and the round structure onto are all implying superman things to me (metropolis, daily planet...) I'm expecting to see him in the shot for some reason. :)

an over all nice photo anyhow.

The yellow against the black is great, but that thick black border around the bottom just kills the effect. Good title!

Nice job!

Wonderful, I've been trying to pick my "shot of the challenge" and it's been very hard. I love the deco feel of this, the colours and compostition. It's a shame you couldn't ask them to out the light in the window on the left!

IMO,, this is the winnder... a very deserved 10

Another one I like. A very simple design that pulls me in.

This is very reminiscent of the film to me - when she's in the chair being constructed...

Nice lighting and composition, but not quite urban enough maybe.

I usually don't comment about the border, but this one is way too big. Not too bad because it blends in on the top, but it really takes away from the beauty of the photo on the bottom. I was really enjoying the symetry as the image came up, only to have the mood broken by the border. 8 and I'll not knock you down for the mistake. Please don't make the same mistake again.

Very striking building. Lovely night shot. Too bad more of the building is not visible. Also IMO the thick black border around the whole image is not neccessary - there is anough blackness here as it is (unless this is a funeral hall).

With the black night sky, your border seems a bit much. Overall I like the subject nd angle.

Like the symmetry and impact - now just where is that robot?

Nice shot. Perhaps a little more detail in the building would be good.

the cropping and choice of colour for border lost some marks. 6

I only wish this was totally symmetric in composition
