Taken from Kerry Park in Seattle. I noticed the similarity between the lamp and the needle and imagined a dialog between the two.

The light is kind of distracting to the rest of the shot.

Certainly an unusal connection but it does work. Or at least I see your point. Good luck!

Perhaps a bit of a shoehorn for this challenge, but regardless, a brilliantly creative eye. To see the proportional similarity between the post and tower takes talent. The bird droppings on the lamp post also adds a humbling sense to it as it aspire to greatness.

To improve the image... I think a smaller aperture would help bring both foreground and background into focus. Also, a UV and/or polarizing filter could help cut through the haze which is robbing you photo of much contrast.

main subjects could be in focus.
besides, I do not see any mutually benefitial relationship here..

Very funny, well done to find this unusual angle of a famous landmark. Would love to see a night-time version of this

Great idea. Possibly a bit wasted in "Partners", though. The crispness and the colours of the background make it look artificial - not unpleasant, but strange. It wouldn't have hurt to have the main character focused as well. An extra point for humour.

The coloring of Seattle looks really fake. Nice idea, but it could have been better executed.

Great concept, the pole in the foreground is a little fuzzy which is understandable seeing as it would be hard to foucus on 2 things when one is 20ft from you and the other is 300 yards. This picture really brings out the beauty of seattle, Its a great city.

I think this is a pretty cute idea, not sure how the others will take it - but I think it fits the challenge! Love the foreground bokeh, good shot of the space needle (it is the space needle right? I've never been to Seatle...)
I think I would have tried to play with the curves a bit, maybe bring out some more blue in the sky and maybe less blue in the building windows?
