Just for fun.
A lot of picking up bolts from the floor.
I wanted a little bit more reflection but it was hard to get.

I think this is my favorite of the screw and nail cities I've seen so far. I love the shallow DOF, and the silvery tones are just absolutely lovely. Awesome work.

Very creative - the arrangement & lighting are great! My favorite of the "skyline" shots << 8 >>

Sweet...reminiscent of Metropolis or the Matrix or something. Great composition!

Nice creativity.

The concept is creative, but with a gray background doesnt stand out as much. A brightly colored background would have made the silver of the objects stand out.

Great idea and well executed - I think if it had not been for river city in steel (which although I feel both pictures are as strong as each other possibly imo has one or two little additional touches) this would have ribboned. Still deserving of a very high score and a great placing. Terrific image and spot on in meeting the challenge

This picture would be more intersting if there was more to the background

Beautiful. Love the bokeh and colour. Nuts, bolts and screws have never looked so good.

Nice to see good use of DOF here and the BG colour works well for the overall look.

This is such a unique idea, I can't believe two people (so far) have done this, very nicely executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think with the scoring on this one you could be screwed.
Very clever looking city scape

The b&w gives a nice point of difference
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Unique and well done. I think it fits the challenge perfectly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 07:13:20 PM
a familiar concept in this challenge - i like the use of shallow DOF - but the sides of the image seem too cut off and there could be more reflection to help the image and convey the landscape more
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 04:10:35 PM
Needs a .25 rotation cw but other than that, it's perfect! I love this kind of creativity. Crisp definition, nice bokeh happening, technically, it's a skyline not a landscape, but I won't say anything :) 9

PS I've just seen another two photos similar to yours and I like this one better by far. You'll know why.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 02:43:14 PM
A couple of these in the challenge. I like your DOF, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 12:38:29 PM
good shot but too many objects are same height, makes pic a little bland.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:12:10 AM
there's another similar one but this is better...a great idea for the challenge, love the sq crop and the colours and depth of field 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:07:41 AM
I like the color, composition and lighting. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 09:12:46 AM
DOF is great in this one ... gives the feeling of an expansive 'city'
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 08:26:21 AM
Love it, especially the other outlines blurring into the distance
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 08:23:57 AM
Very good effort, lighting a little too flat. Would suggest that you space out the objects a little further apart. When I look at the image it feels too congested. 6

04/09/2008 07:47:55 AM
wow - this is the 4th one like this so far. I like the monochrome cool color in this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 06:07:20 AM
Brilliant - love it :) Wish I'd thought of something like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 05:12:00 AM
quite good attempt at copying Carl Warners shot. POV is too high, crop could be a little closer, lighting could be enhanced, is too frontal. had enjoyed to see more of the reflection
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 01:38:26 AM
Greater depth of field would be helpful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 01:15:28 AM
this seems to have been a popular idea. your lighting is better 6

04/09/2008 12:44:44 AM
Clever idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 12:36:58 AM
I guess this must have been on a lot of minds and yet I still didn't think about it. Ughhhhh
