Wow, I like it! The lettering almost looks like a line of laundry.

I liked the text, and the cityscape is spot on. Congrats on your top 20 finish in this ridiculously scoring challenge.

Congrats on a top 20, Frank! IMO the treatment of the text is fine, but the stencil font may not be the best choice. Still a great image and excellent finish!

This would be a 10 except the text overlay is too hard to get. 9, though. :)

Nice try with the lettering, but it's too hard to read -- it looks like there's something wrong with the sky. Good capture though.

Very nice use of background to tell us where this is!

Nice landscape catching the Space Needle, Seattle Center, Mt. Rainier, and color in sky. I think that the big "Seattle" overlay kills the shot, a more discrete script title in the upper right corner would be better.

First, good shot; second, I love the way you incorporated the text into this. Very nice!

The lettering is subtle enough that it enhances and the image is excellent. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hard to make out the letters...my eye kept picking up the darker background shape which made no sense. Title finally filled me in. Nice concept, though. Nice lighting. 6

The text works a bit distracting IMHO. But overall a great skyline shot!

nice use of text on this one.. works for me.. 8

Very interesting and creative graphics. So interesting that my eye spends most of the time there rather than on the city.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't like the type at all. Nice skyline during the blue minutes though.

I found the lettering in the background very distracting, sorry to say. Otherwise, great shot.

The text seems to negatively impact the photo

Beautiful shot of Seattle... the lighting is great, and I appreciate that the brightest of the lights aren't blown out. The text for this one is a bit distracting. I think if it were a bit smaller, it would fit completely into the sky instead of running over the buildings/mountains, and it would make it more readable.

Your overlay of the letters is really pretty slick. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/21/2006 02:49:20 PM
This is one where loud, kooky text works. Good job 8

Love the photo, hate the writing. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/20/2006 10:38:41 PM
The only issue I have is that the text takes a bit of effort to see. Love the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great picutre. i like the writing, it does appear to be a little too subtle - at least on my screen.

Just like the poster! lol Love it. You did a fantastic job here. I don't miss the weather in the PNW on bit. I do miss the green. Great city, great people. Bad traffic. :)

Love the text...excellent image and great as a postcard
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely photo. Though it might be nice to see the blue and red a little more desaturated because it draws my attention to that. The sky is also nice, I think it's much nicer than if there would have been large pillowy bright clouds, because that would have been a bit busy. The use of text is pretty cool, very "postcard."

nice pic but the sky has strange grey shapes
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot. I like the text layout but not liking the font choice however that's not a big deal for me.
