Great idea and nice tribute to the twin towers, good clear labeling of Battery Park to reinforce fitting it all together. Effective lighting, well done.

Nice work indeed. Not only did you avoid flashing the brand name in the viewer's face, you did something very creative with the subject. 10.

Ooo very good 10

nice concept! the blown out part below the batteries is a bit turn-off for me

Yes, history does cast a shadow. Clever.

I so very much hope this ribbons. I think it is a technically great shot but more than that is the emotions that it invokes. Great job and good luck.

Great setup, idea and shot. Well done.

Creative. I like your use of lighting in that it creates a natural vignetting. I imagine you needed it (lighting) this way for the extreme shadows that make this photo what it is, but still a nice side effect. :D The title is throwing me off a bit. I understand the twin towers of the WTC connection, but how are they still strong? They don't exist anymore except in our hearts, minds, and memories. Having said all that, I don't have any suggestions for a better title...hmmm.

Anyway, a nice creative shot, with an emotive twist to it. Well done. Good luck in the challenge.

Nicely done - the subdued lighting, simple green batteries and unsual perspective all work well.

I think an increased dof would add to this picture without taking the viewer's eyes away from the batteries.
12/27/2006 01:01:20 AM
