I took the picture from miles away up on the roof of a shopping mall.

Works for me! Nice job of getting everything nicely focused, from the intricate texture to the mountain. Great job!

Excellent! One of my favorites this week!

nice job

Wonderful example of use of framing as an compositional element. -stephan

Nice shot, but I think it would look better if it was well-centered.
09/21/2002 10:31:00 PM
I am drawn to this photo because of the stucco framing. I would like to see the mountains in better focus. 7

like it - could do with being even more 'straight on' but a good effect.

Well framed, though the wall isn't very striking and I think it's colour detracts from the view within.

This is a great picture. You have done a great job of using negative space. Lighting and focus are good. Your subject matter is great... (3 greats in one comment... Wow....) waltoml 9

Be wary of over-sharpening a photo like this. The significant color differences between the frame and contents can create a "halo" effect and make it look like a composited image...

one of my top pics - 9

1st or 2nd place in my opinion

Great shot! I think this could have stood a little less framing, but that's personal taste. Most shots I am commenting on receive no plus or minus for negative space, as I am "not getting it". (Not your fault, it's me, really!) 10 Swash

Beautiful made even more beautiful by the frame--well done andrewm

Very appealing image - the negative space (wall) certainly adds a lot of appeal to this image - very warm tones contrasting to the cool tones of the distant view.
09/19/2002 04:26:00 AM
picture perfect
09/18/2002 06:55:00 PM
Very imaginative

Very interesting, nice shot

Lovely color & clarity in this photo. Well done.
09/18/2002 12:05:00 AM
Don't you hate it when you have a great idea and someone else has the same one? This is just excellent tho. Nice colors & beautiful view. Light seems a bit harsh maybe. 9 ~indigo997

Awesome use of NS...this shot kicks but. I wish there was a bit more contrast in the middle...but it's still a 9 - zadore

I like this image, it looks like a SW scene, maybe NM? I am not sure that it really meat the challenge though. Negative space is something that compliments and accentuates the subejct. These subjects are competitng for my attention. You have a very nice photo, worthy of display, and I will vote it as such.
For ways to improve this specific image: Maybe a UV/Haze filter, or a polarizing filter would bring out the mountains a little more. Good eye for a great subject.

Top 5 this week! I love the texture of your "frame" and the backdrop is beautiful!
09/17/2002 08:57:00 AM
Pretty freakin' good. I would have centered the camera with respect to the window to even out the interior perspective of the window itself.
09/17/2002 04:49:00 AM
haha this is the same thing that i was going to do but only with a paper that I just cut the window in. This is much better. I'm glad that i didnĀ“t post this week. great jop and extra point for having the same idie. -rocco22-

Really good.
09/16/2002 10:02:00 PM
Nicely done! I love the colors and the dynamics created by the shift from the simple smooth texture of the wall to the grand, rough texture of the mountains.
09/16/2002 07:08:00 PM
While many of the entries this week were good photography, few actually really understood the assignment of negative space. You clearly understood and did an excellent job of portraying it. Good job!
09/16/2002 05:04:00 PM
dam...you're good
09/16/2002 04:34:00 PM
How cool! The framed view is really great.
