could have been a little more centered to preserve symmetrical lines... other than that, this is an excellent shot. kudos.

Nice Shot- good compositon, nice cloud detail in background, great depth of field- well done!

Makes for a very inviting view. I like it.

Thank you all for your warm and expressive comments.
Have to tell you that this photo is taken in an Hoover Dam ( i guess this is the name in english ) and this is a restricted area. Some guys came to me, thinking that i was probably a terrorist :)))

Congrats! I have mixed feelings about the new guys getting ribbons. On the one hand its good to see new people winning. On the other hand, there were already enough good people to compete with before you guys got here. Just kidding. Good find and good shot.

nice in black and white I like how the shadows truned out.

The eye is drawn straight to the direction the shot travels. Great point of view.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful tones and contrast, great perspective effect, and an all-around nice shot. Minor nit is the brighter slightly overexposed beam top right, could be burned in a bit outside of the challenge.

Finally something that I was expecting to see a little more of. I think I've voted on 30 in a row that were quite uninspiring. I really like this one. It reminds me of my bridge pic in a way. Nice job. 8

wow factor high B&W works here. too bad about the shadow it is a little distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting shot. Great vanishing point and tones. Could have been a little more symmetrical though.

This photo looks like it comes from another world. It is a joy to look at the slight off-centre POV in this photo and watch all the different elements and lines. Combined with the black and white, the light, shadows and the distant landscape it makes this photo one of the best of this challenge (9).

Good job. Nice black and white. It's a pity the shot is not centered..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 11:11:28 PM
Cool...nice shadows and sense of depth, nice choice of black and white...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 10:13:09 PM
That big shadow is right in the middle, I love it. So symmetrical, then the shadows come in just right and add some character. Wish I had taken this one. POV seems well-planned too. 10!

Great image. Obvious point of view, but a good one all the same.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2004 03:11:37 PM
This would have had more impact if the picture was taken whilst you were more centred on the bridge.

Nice abstract looking photo. 9

this is very striking. you have a good eye. maybe even two. this is the kind of thing that non-shutterbugs might not even see, isn't it nice having a hobby that expands your view of the world.

Lighting and contrast make this an award winner

Wow, great shot. Excellent shadows and black and white. Love it :D

A very enjoyable picture to look at; I love the BW treatment, absolutely gorgeous! The only thing I would fix is centering the image to stress the symmetry, especially when you are using a title such as Geometry, which correlates to mathematics and symmetry, other than that small blip, a very nice shot that fits the challenge well.
