I have just looked at your Urban challenge photo.a 4.1 with all the comments of don't meet challenge, Just think if they thought it met the challenge what your score might have been, That all adds up to one thing It's a great photo.

yes, actually there is. Just to the left below the mountains.

Beautiful, but hardly urban. . .

Good capture I like the fog, good detail, good colors.

Corrrrect me if I am wrong, but where are the buildings (since its supposed to be urban)?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/13/2003 01:20:57 PM
Details: Shoot anything with buildings - from cities to villages.

Great shot but doesn't fit the challenge at all ! Was this a mistake?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo. It has a lot of interest, but I don't see how it relates to urban landscapes...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

With only the rocks to represent buildings this is pushing the envelope to meet the challenge for me. On the shot itself, if any of it has a sharper focus, either the front or the background I would go much higher on the overall shot. It looks like a lovely area, the mist rolling in is very inviting to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice photo, soft and peaceful. A lot of different textures make it fun to explore. It would be great in the right context.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2003 11:21:54 AM
I love this photo. It is well composed and has a wonderful mood. You missed an opportunity to have fun. If there had even been a washed away sand castle in the frame, I would have voted higher. Sorry, there is no way to stretch this to the meet the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice picture but no buildings to be seen. Perhaps a different title could have hinted at something in the mist.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2003 11:10:53 AM
Where is the urban?
Its a good shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/10/2003 10:44:12 AM
That might be a building there in the background, I don't know...but it's definitely a landscape shot! Good dof in the forground!

Not urban, but very beautiful.

that rock looks almost like the roof of a majestic building. Love the misty feeling. 7

Lovely picture but IMO it does not meet the challenge remit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 05:54:10 PM
Nice picture but where's the urban landscape?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 03:18:06 PM
Pretty picture, but I'm not sure where the focus is. And two small things: 1) I wish the middle reed didn't reach into the water, and 2) there's nothing "urban" here to meet the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 01:55:23 PM
Too bad that such a nice photo is placed in the wrong challenge. :(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 11:17:32 AM
What is urban here?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 09:35:43 AM
Almost looks like haystack in Astoria. Well, can't really rate this too high - it's a great shot, but no buildings (at least that I see). It aslo isn't very 'urban'. But it is a nice shot, nonetheless.

Not an urban landscape, but really lovely
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/09/2003 12:28:47 AM
Even though I don't believe this meets the challenge, and your focus is too soft in the foreground, I am a sucker for mist images and this one has a great sci-fi feel to it. Almost appears to be a distant planet's landscape. 6 Would have been higher had it met the challenge.

is this ocean park in s.f? nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 09:49:12 PM
Very nice shot! Composition is great; I like the grass in the foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I thought urban was city not coast Nice photo though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 07:41:40 PM
Not so urban?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 07:33:31 PM
... Metaphorically speaking I assume! Very atmospheric, and the thumbnail almost looks like a building poking out of a hazy city. Lovely shot. [7]

erban what?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 05:39:48 PM
Lovely! But no buildings?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 04:12:06 PM
This interpretation, I suspect, will get some flak here for stretching the topic. It is, however, quite a beautiful capture, which I'm rating accordingly. Would a slight change of perspective have resulted in a more pleasing composition with respect to the centred rock or mount? The single grass stem appears just a little too sparse to achieve a fully balanced result.

I also wish the image was a little larger than it is.

Beautiful, moody shot. Where is this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 03:05:10 PM
Urban landscape?

10/08/2003 02:34:23 PM
Its landscape but not definately NOT urban ? ? ?

urban?

Looks like Haystack Rock on the Oregon Coast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 11:24:51 AM
I like the feel and mood of this image. I think I would have liked it a little more if the horizon wasn't so centered. But good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 10:32:49 AM
beatiful pic but not an urban landscape, IMHO, where are the buildings?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 09:50:59 AM
where is the building? Very nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 09:39:57 AM
Visual appeal 2/4, technical 2/3, meeting the challenge 0/3 - 4/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 06:54:31 AM
This isn't an urban landscape, it is a landscape. Urban means in the city or town, so in an urban landscape you gotta see bridges, buildings that kind of stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 04:28:59 AM
I dont see any buildings in this. Nice shot though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 02:07:29 AM
While I like this picture very much I do not think it represents "Urban Landscapes." Urban to me is inner city while this is rural, seaside, or country. It does not portray Urban.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 01:39:32 AM
A nice picture but not even remotely relevant to the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 01:08:04 AM
nice photo, although I don't see any buildings here, but it is a good shot...I like the fog in the distance
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 12:06:25 AM
Haystack! :) Love it in all weather and this fog is a bonus. Neat capture. I have taken several of that old rock. Good going.
