Thanks to everyone for the ribbon. I knew this was going to be very tough to even get a ribbon. At one point I was at 8.2 with 50 votes and getting very excited. Oh well wasnt to be.Congratulations to Firsty and Larus on taking terrific photos.

Congratulations on this ribbon, with a score like that they should give out multiple blues. Wow. 7.8 and a yellow. BTW, I like the lettering (the font/colour), it suits a beautiful picture perfectly.

Great contrast, light and portrait of London. The large text was a risk that materialized nicely and fills in the blank sky very well. Only 0.05 off, but you deserved the yellow ribbon, gj!

Alex this is a great shot and it had me worried all week as my score was following yours in dropping all week long
I love the coloring of this and will have to try this type of toning on some of the sights of Sydney (but not the opera house as I need to shot something else)

One of my favorite postcards. I like the steely monotone look you've achieved here. A stand-out for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 05:48:57 PM
Love the overall "blue" hue to this shot. Something different for a nighttime cityscape photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 03:30:00 PM
Stylish. I would choose this to send.
Edit - revisited, and bumping from a 9 to a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 02:49:48 PM
I really like the cool temp of this cityscape...almost metallic, it changes the mood from what you normally think about london--9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 02:47:40 PM
I almost really like this photo, but wish the photo part came up higher so there wasn't a large area of nothing in the centre of the image.

11/21/2006 01:13:02 PM
I like the color treatment. Nice job.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 09:26:26 AM
This by far has to be my top pick of the challenge, and there was some pretty damn good stuff entered. The composition is very good and the monochromatic tones are just too awesome. Also like the appropriate use of text, not all clunky like a lot of the others. Excellent, 10!
