It's not like me to complain about applicability to the challenge but surely this is more "converging lines" than parallel? Regardless it's a great atmospheric shot and well worthy of recognition.

I am a great fan of color. There is a total lack of blue in this photo.Of all colors there should be blue,

The angle is great. Composition is OK. But there is no color.You lose points because you do not intagrate color as an aspect of your composition. While B&W can be a strong format, you fail to see that there is a pervading color cast that would give a sense of motion to your picture.

Congrats on your second ribbon in a row. This structure/building has so much power to it, the perspective and tone really enhance that. Did you worry about the slight tilt to the right? Just curious.

Good luck in your next challenges...

Thanks for all the great comments
you wait all year for a ribbon and then two come along at once
I doubt that my entry for "out of place" will score high and I'm bracing myself for the comments

By the way " to the stars " post shot editing would have passed the basic rules it was converted to B/W and the contrast increased

Congratulations Paul!!!! a well deserved blue ribbon for you:)) and I'm impressed... two blues in a row!!!

The clouds look fake to me, something of the sort of "Difference Clouds" as produced with Photoshop. Maybe not, but it just looks like it could have been rendered rather than captured. Not to offend, just to question the possibility. I liked this image, the clouds just gave me a 2nd guess. Regardless, congrats on the win and the numerous other wins under your belt. You've definitely got a good thing going.

Paul... This image is well deserving of the blue ribbon. I was not in disagreement with the group when I made it one of my top three picks. Kudos to you and your great work and congrats on a second blue.

Great perspective, lighting and composition. One of my top three.

Looks very menacing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2004 06:18:46 PM
Very hi-tech. The blade-like angle of the building points aggresively to the sky and
challenges whoever is up there to complain. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2004 05:10:08 PM
what an awesome perspective of this building. the lighting helps define the cold steel of the side of the building. the clouds give a neat spooky effect

Great prespective. It litterally looks like it's going to the stars. Very ominous looking building.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2004 02:28:48 PM
Nice. Looks like it could be a book cover for Lord of the Rings.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2004 01:32:26 PM
Great job using perspective and the sky to invoke feeling using only nonliving objects. The blackness to the right seems a little out of place, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2004 07:53:53 AM
Great picture.
My equal favorite (apart from my image of course!!)

I love this photo! What is that structure? It seems to run to infinity. Good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 07:36:07 PM
That is a really neat view. Is it a sculpture?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 02:39:01 PM

Very cool shot and very cool sky. I hope you do well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 11:37:38 AM
this is very strong. I like the harsh industrial feel. Reminds me of the windowless government buildings in George Orwell's 1984. Good Luck! -9
