I love the sign! It could be one of those mind the bend signs but its still great. Signs by their very nature punch, especially a no entry sign, so combined with the curves of that buiding - what a foil!
well done
love your eye by the way.

I agree, at the time I voted you with a 9, I knew something was wrong with the picture, but couldn't find out. Now I know, sorry pal, but my opinion is that this is an otherwise magnificent picture that happens to have an unfitting traffic sign which made it fit the challenge


You're absolutely right! And I capitalised on that! :-) If you look at the "postcard" callenge" I almost have the exact same photo but without the sign... it looks way better. :-)

Wonderful shapes and colours - what a vibrant image! Well composed in terms of viewpoint, balance of building to sky and position of sign.

This is my #3 vote, great contrast between sign and building.
01/23/2004 04:39:05 AM
What a nice correlation... and icy cold sky behind! I like it very much!
01/22/2004 07:55:44 PM
This is a very nice abstract photo that's better technically than most the other photos (abstract or otherwise). It lacks a slight amount of "wow"-factor though.
01/22/2004 06:23:19 PM

Like sign juxtaposed against curvy building. I would have cropped sky.
01/22/2004 07:50:00 AM
Fascinating building, nice colours & lighting. Picture is ncely balanced. Unfortunately the sign just looks like it doesn't belong there.
01/21/2004 11:34:21 PM
Great composition. Like the color.
01/21/2004 01:12:03 PM

Great composition - one of my favourites. I think the architect should get a pat on the back also.
