Basic editing!?!

I really like the idea. It's kind of a traditional take on the word, but it's presented in such an unconventional way. I feel like there's a bit too much going on, with the structure of the tower, the clouds and the trees. I think the trees and the clouds take away from the electricity idea.

Way over processed for my taste...

I like the photo a lot. Enough that I want to give it a 10. But, your chosen title just kind of, well, frankly it ticks me off for some reason. I know we're here to vote on photos, not titles. But think of it like this. If the Mona Lisa were named 'Sorta chubby lady smirking a weak smile while people for centuries wonder why' - I don't think it would be as popular a work of art as it is today.

Are you sure this is basic editing? there seems to be a lot of selective dodging and/or burning here. Personally, I think I would have liked it much more without the processing.

Was this really basic editing?

Very good challenge interpretation and composition. Of course, you chose a "powerful" B&W conversion that either makes os brakes the photo... For me, it makes it.

Awesome image. I love all the deep black in the sky and the high contrast!

The processing looks really odd on this. That being said, it's an interesting photo in terms of leading lines.

Woah - Way to go on the processing!

Potentially a very nice image, though I think you have gone way overboard on the processing. Has it been HDR'd? There are some odd shifts in tone and exposure going on...

Not sure what's more shocking - the picture or the title. Overdone, but A for effort on trying to put a more interesting twist on this repeated subject. Good luck. :)

Not sure how you got this effect but it is neat. Everything feels energized.

Looks over processed and sloppy....the areas of haze are not good.
09/05/2007 07:47:57 AM
The photo is over processed.
09/05/2007 07:09:26 AM
Maybe it's just me - but imo something went terribly wrong in post processing here.
09/05/2007 06:28:46 AM
not sure how you did this under basic editing rules...

Wow stunning if you managed all this in basic!!!! Great image which draws the viewer in

the shot is very interesting. the post work is a little strange, almost feels like I am looking through stained glass but in B&W.
