Post challenge:
Hey, a new ribbon. I might now be tempted to participate again in more challenges.

Shot it when visiting the Louvre in the evening. The weather outside was quickly changing, alternating between heavy rain and sun. I probably shot as much of the outside than of the inside of the museum.

Great image. Even if you crop from the height down at different lengths it still remains great... Bravo!

Brilliant, and in my opinion, the best actual DAPPLED light in the true sense.... Nice.

Congratulations on the ribbon, I believed this to Blue, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

congrats on the ribbon... I really love this shot, adding it to my faves. I don't know why but I always seem to like small silhouetted figures in my shots, just a trend i noticed in my shots. You captured a great moment viewed in context of a larger environment, very awesome.

This is really nice. I love the silhoettes and patterns here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not at all what I expected to find in this challenge and yet it's wonderful for it. Dappled on a very large scale. I love the little scene playing out in the foreground, and the shapes and shadows adding interest throughout the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous scene. The dappled light is beautiful and it's fun to see what all the silhouettes are doing.

Everything always looks/smells cleaner after the rain, and it's obvious the peoples spirits have been lifted.

This is my top pick for the challenge, the use of light and shadow is excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2008 10:15:34 PM
This shot throws me off balance and then makes me search for some greater meaning throughout the rest of the composition. I am confused by what I see and intrigued by that uncertainty. Best of the contest, 8

Love all the long people shadows.

Really interesting and well composed. I love the parent playing with his kid at the bottom. Neat use of lighting too

Excellent display of patterns and shadows. Abstract but not inaccessible. Nice job! An eight for you.

Fantastic. Like the geometric shapes. Shadows!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/24/2008 09:05:09 AM
Great shot.. The shapes and tones all work well together, I lose a bit of interest to the right hand side, but overall a very solid shot..

I love your title and the image itself...the people at the bottom really add to the story of what's going on here

very nice - great shadows

Is it real? OMG, it looks like an illustration, not a picture. Great composition. I love the grayscale you used, it gives it a mystic mood somehow. It's sooo graphic. I simply love it. Bumping up to 10.

Nice, subtle shot. The play of light on the street is, in itself, very interesting and the people seem like a bonus. Really well done.

The Lourve I assume? Excellent shot I the shadows.

I really like this! The lighting is excellent - I love the different texture of the large paving next to the small. Well done!

Not The usual image of Le Louvre, for sure...Interesting by its light, less by its composition, a bit complicated for my taste.

One of the best of the challenge, spot on!
