Yup... I had to count'm! Fun shot and creative interpretation.

Damn and there actually ARE 39 steps - well done, great care taken. Something not quite satisfying about the image though - perhaps that one set of stairs seems straight, and the other curved, or perhaps the over-lap of the nearer set with the farther tank ... though you're definitely on the right lines, I think. Exposure's good, detail's good - it's just the composition that needs strengthening, critically in an image that relies almost solely on composition for its effect. Stilll giving you a 7, for gettting close though.

nice try.. i count 38 steps! HAH! unless you count the platform.. in which case its 39 :-/

I wonder how many of us are actually counting the steps :-))
I love the abstract look of this photo, the cool simple colours, and the crisp sharpness. I like the way half of the photo is in the sun and half is in shadow. I would have played with the composition a bit more. But otherwise good shot.

very tricky- unfortunately there is not much value to the shot outside of the criteria of the challenge. I first see how the shot is- good here. Then I go to how it fits... good, then how it would be outside of the challenge in your portfolio... not so great.

a favorite author, good response to challenge the juxtaposition of the two sets of steps might have been a bit clearer from another angle

I counted about 45 steps..... nice shot tho

I like the idea. I think I would habe liked it better is there were just one stair case instead of two. Maybe if the shot was tighter on the left side with the blue sky background & nothing else. Meets the challenge well though

Extra POints for having 39 steps in the photo :) Why I took this time to count??

I only count 37! Doesn't meet the challenge! =)

Nice shot, only problem is the towers are a little crooked, but since the curved stairs cover most of the line, it isn't that distracting. I like it!

Have you counted it before you captured?? :D

Bad Points:not the most interesting image, shame about the shadow on the right stair.
Good Points: I counted 38 or 29 steps, well done for that alone!
11/12/2003 03:35:01 AM
i counted.
11/12/2003 01:21:11 AM
I confess. I counted them. It's true. LOL. Nice photo, however, the shadow on the left tank is a bit distracting. Maybe taking the photo when the sun was on the back side of the tanks could have worked better.,
