I like the quality of light, and the duotone you chose for post processing.

I love the sense of movement that the rising steam gives the photo!

The glowing steam is great, and adds wonderful dimension to this shot - the contrast between it's softness and the hard edges of the buildings and people is great. The B&W/sepia tones are perfect.

Nice grunge street look. 7

This is great, has a 20's feel to it. Nicely done.

The person in white may be a bit distracting – otherwise a great shot with an “old” feel to it.

Looks like a chilly morning. Nice use of monotones.

Sometimes it pays to get up early. This reminds me of pictures from the 1930's. Good work.

A standout in this challenge and my fav of the bunch. Nicely captured. I love the blown out steam

Very atmospheric moment captured. The graininess adds an air of grimness for me?
12/28/2007 09:09:39 AM
gorgeous - it's got a real classic 1930s feel to it - almost expect them all to break into Buddy can you spare a dime
12/28/2007 08:06:58 AM
Like it a lot
12/28/2007 05:10:16 AM

nice feel to this.

I really like this. The fog/steam makes it so dramatic. Your processing gives it a nostalgic old-world look. One of my favorites.
12/26/2007 08:27:07 PM
Love that. This could easily be an early tin type. NICE!!
12/26/2007 05:54:47 PM

Good job capturing this.

Terrific. If I were posthumous I'd have my three ribbons by now, and this would be one of them. Your conversion and use of light is masterful.

This shot has a really old fashioned feel and look to it. Like a time lost in history
