I was on a small trip there and i couldn't resist taking the shot.

Hmmmmm... This image is a little bit bright for my personal taste but the underlying story is not lost here. The composition is good too. I can't really see how this fits the challenge as I see no instruments but I suppose it is the music of war that you were portraying here. Anyway, it evoked a strong response and so I vote on that :)

Seems a stretch for School Days:Music to me. Interesting statue.

nothing to do with music
02/19/2007 05:35:23 PM
besides the title..I do not see how this fits the challenge.
02/18/2007 11:07:45 PM
What has this got to do with music?
02/18/2007 03:51:01 PM
Other than the title making a vague reference to drums, I don't see how this related to music, much less school days.
02/18/2007 10:13:59 AM
SO, how is this "School Days Music"?
02/15/2007 05:14:59 PM
This could use more contrast and some noise reduction. A better connection to the challenge might help also. :D Have fun!

a statue, soldiers, a gun... I just dont see music or school and can't figure out how it relates..

i'm sure you're paying the price for going so far out of the box that you had to use the title to shoehorn the image into the challenge.

I'm not sure how this fits the challenge...and never mind anyway, it's techically not very good. Low contrast, lot of bright sky which is distracting. Compositiion, however, is excellent....well, a little off-centered. And it's a nice subject to take a picture of.

I don't understand the relationship to music. I will DNMC but will come back to look at it once again.
02/14/2007 04:36:25 PM
Sorry, This really seems to be in the wrong challenge.
02/14/2007 02:30:32 PM
seems like you are stretching for this one to fit the challenge. allegory is fine, but nothing about this shot says "music" except the title.
02/14/2007 01:10:28 PM
Bit of a stretch, to say the least...
02/14/2007 08:16:53 AM
I'm just not seeing music on this. Not in the spirit of the challenge IMO.
