I didn't vote on this, but would surely have given it a 7+ score. It's perfect for the challenge.

Wow, Oliver, you were on to me as soon as the starting gates flew open on this one. This means that either I'm developing a highly original style (which would be good) or that I'm becoming hopelessly predictable (not so good). I have to admit I'm running out of buildings to shoot; that hour for lunch (give or take) implies a certain radius. Anyway, thanks for your comments and support!

It looks very digital, I wish I could tell what it was..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2008 02:24:47 PM
Fantastic exposure and theme!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this image and the unique pattern created by photographing at a unique angel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2008 10:24:52 AM
The angle that you shot this from makes the image interesting. I think otherwise it would be dull.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2008 09:35:19 AM
The lines help lead your eye all the way to the back of the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2008 08:13:30 AM
Nice composition and range of values in created by the shadows. It's amazing how the entire photograph is sharp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2008 05:13:35 AM
fantasitc capture, what is this ??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2008 12:10:01 AM
the cartoon-esque-ness and infinite perspective of this is quite appealing. I wouldn't be surprised to see this on the front page.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 08:33:41 AM
I could stare at that forever. The way the light shines on the diamonds towards the back gives it a shimmering sort of feel. That along with the pattern itself is pretty awesome.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

There were so many architecture photos in the challenge, but this one really stands out with a great sense of depth and scale. The highlights are a little too hot for my taste, but not enough to bring down a well deserved 10. ;-)

very nice!

Amazing! One of the best i have seen. Great form and shapes involved. The shadows created give in an optical illusion feel Great(10).

I'd love to know what this is a shot of, it's very striking and works well. 7

This is one of those shots that you just keep looking at, and turning your heads different ways to "figure it out." Ultimately, you can't figure it out and just say "cool." I don't like the slightest pink cast it has, but also figure that could be my monitor, because it is *slight*. Very nicely done

Nice lighting. great example of theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simple & elegant.

03/27/2008 09:56:00 AM
a very strong pattern, crisp and symetrical. i really like this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 05:45:56 AM
This is a great picture. You captured it at the perfect angle..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 12:02:01 AM
The 15-20 degree angle is not appealing to me. Either 0, 45, or 90 would have worked better. Also copping off the bottem row might have made the angle more appealing as it work well for the top 80% of the shot.

03/26/2008 10:45:33 PM
What is this???

Lovely. Almost looks computer generated.
