I love the colors in this photo, and the lighting on the sides and bottom of the window. Feels very vintage and European.

Your pic is very soothing and calm me a lot. I love it. Could you contact me so I can buy a copy of It? Thanks.

Nice shot. The black window edge really sets a great tone for the shot. Good negative space! 8 - chrisab.

Excellent pic. Only the window and beyond seem to exist.

This really has the feel of a handpainted old black and white. The detail of the bricks in the window is what makes the framing work so well for me. The clouds and sky feel like a painting.

I could have sworn I commented this one. Great shot. I really love everything, except maybe the sky. The coloration used here (IMO) doesn't quite work for sky. Don't worry, I loved the rest so much, you're still getting an 9. Swash

Oh my.. how beautiful. I love the framing idea, I've been wanting to try something like this myself.
09/20/2002 02:40:00 PM
great idea for theme, ok photo/composition (there is something kind of nasty about that yellowy sky!)
09/20/2002 01:55:00 PM
gorgeous photo! Everything fits. Negative space applies, but not the wow factor on this one. 9

This is just beautiful. It feels like you could just step into another place and time.

This looks like it could have been taken many many years ago! Lovely mood and overall hues and texture of the brick wall.

Excellent idea. I would have liked it better in natural colors but I like most things that way. I like it a lot though. Nice job.
09/18/2002 06:57:00 PM
As the other contributer, greate idea!
09/18/2002 05:51:00 PM
Sky colors are a bit odd, but excellent challenge interpretation.
09/18/2002 07:28:00 AM
I always love window shots. I esp. like the monochrome effect in yours.
09/18/2002 12:49:00 AM
Still, quiet, serene and almost dreamlike.

Similar to another entry which I also liked alot...9
09/17/2002 10:22:00 PM

One of my favorites this week. Has a surrealistic feel. Nice use of the NS and a great shot.

Very nice - good use of neg space.

Composition: changing this to sepia spoils this very nicely composed shot 8 Lighting: I get the feeling the exposure of the sky was out on this shot 5 Appeal: 8, Total Rating 7 Sulamk

wow. was this taken with a sepia filter? great job. cmcvety.
09/16/2002 11:00:00 PM
I really like this image. Good composition, the proper use of lighting I think created a dramatic effect on the subject. This looks like a classical painting. - labrynthe

So damn very interesting.
09/16/2002 07:22:00 PM
very cool use of - space. it's a shame u couldn't get more color in there.
09/16/2002 04:44:00 PM
What an ancient look to this! Very nice indeed. There appears to be some over saturation in the sky that doesn't look natural. Good luck in the challenge...it's a tough one! Grayce aka Gracious
09/16/2002 03:28:00 PM
great composition
09/16/2002 03:27:00 PM
What a cool picture! I love this one!
09/16/2002 03:00:00 PM
creates a feeling of longing for the outdoors, being trapped...like the coloring

Very nice usage of what I assume is negative space. I like what you did with the color on this one. Focus and lighting are good 9

The tones are wonderful here............the whole shot is wonderful..........I really like this. Wish it was a bit more sharp. Score 8 Justine

That's not a window, it's a hole!! It's a nice photo, not sure what happened with the white bits in the cloud though (half way up the sky, coming from left to right), I guess that was a result of the post processing.
09/16/2002 09:18:00 AM
Rapunzal's view......... this is how i imagine the landscape of a fable....... this is soooooooo beautiful......... Harry Potter lives here. The simple concept of the window frame serves the challenge well in this magical illustration
