Love this, It's begging for a return visit on a day with better lighting conditions.

.....by you I mean, unless you want to send me directions ;-)

Thanks to all who took time to comment.

Unfortunately, the weather played a large part in the washing out effect as the sky was light grey , featureless and overcast.The church in the foreground was underexposed..and I had to perform a bit of a balancing act to try to equalise things.
Didn`t notice the tilt at time of submitting, however, when I had a go at straightening the image..with the church level..the flats took a lean to the right...I think the problem lies in the fact that the church is not parallel with the flats but at a slight angle.
Kept the figures in the shot to show scale, (pleased that some voters appreciated that).

If this was not tilted....and had a bit more saturation...it might have been one of my top picks.....

Lovely shot!!

What really makes this work for me is not the buildings themselves, but the tiny people at the bottom. They add a great sense of perspective to the pic, and give you an idea of how big the buildings really are. 9/10

Great contrast. The picture would have been better if you could have waited until the people were out of the frame.

Where was this taken. Very nice. People at the bottom add scale.

Nice church building ,maybe photo angle should be different and sky is too burned out.5.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think if you had metered this alittle better so that the sky wasn't so burnt I believe it would have turned out better, or maybe even come back at a different time of day, later in the evening perhaps, but I do like the idea, also I would have wated for the people to get out of the picture, but that's me being anal

It would be good to be sure the scene is level. Interesting neighborhood. The colors in the background contrast nicely with the old building.

Nice photo, too bad it's underexposed (too light)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A very striking contrast. Nice job; I really like this picture.

excellent out of place photograph!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2004 05:43:21 AM
almost very good except I would have removed the figures and ground and tried to increase the contrast between the blocks and the sky...they look too washed out at the moment
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Effective challenge entry. I like the geometrical parallels between church and high rises. The photo is a bit washed out though. I'd like to have seen more saturated colours - this is down to the overcast conditions though which i guess you might not have been able to do much about!

different time of day would have been better ... sky is hopelessly overexposed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent, excellent photo. The right angles and gray/light color combinations work very well. And I like how the textures and styles of the two buildings are so different, yet very similar at the same time, with their pastel colors and blocky shapes. My top score for the week.

Beautiful image. The color is great; the effects are great...everything!

The sky wash-out :-((( Otherwise - excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I wish you had stepped it back a bit. The grass hillock on the rightis a nice common groung for the old and new and I wish it had been carried under the whole frame to balance the sky. This IMHO would have made what is alreaqdy a good shot better.

A healthy dose of contrast with some darkening could make this a spectacular shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 04:21:10 PM
I like this very much.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 03:17:20 PM
I sure like this composition. I do think the saturation could stand a boost. Still this is good on the eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 01:26:30 PM
Out of place allright!! I think I would have tilted the photo a bit to get a horizontal horizon, and the skies seem a bit overexposed. Nice anyway
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 12:48:06 PM
Great idea, but over-exposed--especially the sky (also the modern buildings).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 11:00:16 AM
This shot could have been so much better. The image looks a little over exposed and the people in the shot are very distracting. I personally would love to see this shot at sunrise or twilight with lights on in the tower blocks. A bit of a missed opportunity for me then 4/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 10:12:57 AM
WOW great shot and that old church certainly looks out of place in front of all those tall buildings
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 09:52:48 AM
THE CONTRAST IS VERY GOOD>>.... :))))))))))))
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 06:17:46 AM
the blocks of course...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 03:12:46 AM
Nice composition - this deffiniatly encapuslates the oddness of the old building in-between the newer flats.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2004 01:22:40 AM
Wonderful idea and well framed. If only the sky weren't totally blown out. Also, there is a slight tilt to the right. While you seem to be perfectly aligned on the left, the right shows the angle. This is all the result of shooting upwards toward the buildings.
