Well......You are the proud owner of the only "10" I see this week. Sad to say but that inclueds my entry also. I love the warm rich colors and the clarity and grain of the wood. =10 syamjonimi

I find I have to edit this comment....This photo is the first 10 for the week. I just voted one other picture into the 10 category.

Beautiful sunset, too bad the challenge made you put a house under construction in front of it. (I hope you took a spare w/o the house!) The wood is very well photographed, but I honestly don't like it covering the sunset. Still 9... Swash

I like this photo, although I really don't like to see the challenge name (new) used in the title... too cliche. Get out your thesaurus and crank up your imagination. Photo is really great.

great lighting... i like the sunlight but perhaps you shouldn't use the flash (make the house looks darker and i'd move the camera back a bit to capture the new house in the foreground and absorb that light, with a tripod! 7

This is beautiful. The owner of this new house is very lucky to be able to view that sunset every night. At first, I thought that the virtical post to the left was not even with the edge of the photo. As I kept looking at it, I wasn't sure, so I measured it and it is almost as perfect as perfect gets. However, I was trying to figure out why it originally looked tilted a bit, and I realized that it is because the horizon is not straight, and being a lighter color at the top, and a darker color at the bottom, it makes that particular post only appear to be crooked. This isn't a photographer error, or camera error, or any error for that matter. Just a trick on the eyes, more like an optical allusion. So I chose to ignore it. lol. This depicts new, it is visually appealing, and I think it even goes by that "rule of thirds" that is currently being discussed in the forums. Great shot! Good luck in the challenge.

perhaps the natural silhouette of the frame would have been more apealing

There were a multitude of new building photos this week, but I really liked the background on this one.

Excellent take on this subject, and great execution with the sunset behind. Nice work!

This is a beautiful shot. It captures the sky and the foreground with great aplomb. DOF is absolutely top notch, it has great drama and wonderful atmosphere… (10)

Excellent sunset. I'd like to see a photo without the wood in the way. Lighting is nice on this one. Focus is good. Subject matter is good. 7

Beautiful sky, but the part of the picture that's topical just doesn't do much for me. A different angle might have worked better.
08/12/2002 04:45:00 PM
Nice colors.
