nice clouds

This is a bit too small and not strong on the diagonal theme. I like your sky and clouds though.

Looks nice. I just wish it was big enough to judge the picture quality.

Good shot from below, the sky is fantastic. It is a bit funny in a way, because the sky does have a very diagonal feel, but the subject doesn't. I imagine many others will tell you this, but it would be good if you entered larger images (640 px on the longest side). ~5

Small submissions make it hard to really give images a fighting chance!

I also consider this pretty much a DNMC - the ever so slightly slanted perspective seems more accidental than anything - it's missing a strong diagonal connection.

Composition could have been much better overall. The viewer is left wondering what they are supposed to look at - what's the subject? Is it the building? Is it the clouds?

detail is lost here b/c of the small size. nice colors though.

The image is too small, here is the link for the tutorial: //www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=26. Next time will be better :).

I'm sure your tired of hearing this, but the picture is so small I can't see any detail. The tower blends in with everything else at this size (not to mention that it is about to fall over).

Too small, but a good photo

Very difficut to assess this photo due to its tiny size - make full use of the 640 pixel size allowance (if you are new, MK has written a useful guide).

Piture is too small... :-\
11/30/2006 03:55:07 PM
it looks like it is probably a really need image - great sky color and clouds, but it is hard to make out at such a small size

nice architecture with clouds, but where is the diagonal composition
11/30/2006 12:05:38 PM
why oh why so tiny???
11/30/2006 04:52:55 AM
You would get better votes if your picture was bigger.
11/30/2006 01:19:16 AM
cool picture. i wish it was bigger!

Not sure what is trying to be achieved here. If it was the clouds, then the building gets in the way, if it was the building then why is it so small in the frame.
11/29/2006 07:07:58 PM
Not very strong on the diagonal element. Also, a very small image. Try to take advantage of the full 640 pixels if you can.
11/29/2006 05:38:43 PM
Not seeing much of a diagonal. just a slightly tilted building.
11/29/2006 02:27:19 PM
Far too small to judge.
11/29/2006 12:37:24 PM
Pity... too small....
11/29/2006 12:04:24 PM
Far to small. In future you will do alot better if you use all the 640 pixels avalibla to you.
