I've been wanting to comment on this for a while and now I finally have a chance to do so. I had no idea to what lengths you would go to serve your country hahaha. (I read your first set of comments that you had and I already know what you do but I could not resist writing that! hehe)

Beautiful capture of lines and I love the clarity. Your perspective creates this dizzying effect too. Congrats on a great score!

Following up on my comment:

Well, congrats on finishing fairly high. I hope you weren't too offended by my comment, but the thought sticks with me. I can only imagine where this would have finished in a challenge called "Perspective"!

Great angle for the shot. Those tiny bits of blue are wonderful.

The perspective hurts my eyes when I stare at this image, I think it might have worked better slightly more veritical as it looks almost as if the machine is going across the roof of a building as it is.

Going on a second pass of my lower votes, and I'm forced to bump this one up. Although I'm still not a giant fan of the angle you've chosen (I don't get a real sense of "occupation" here, as the person(s) that are doing the job are pretty hidden, even in the reflections), the shot has enough to stand itself on a good technical level. In a challenge having to do with lines, or patterns, or something, this would be a bit stronger. Here, it just doesn't have enough of a tie-in for me.

I had to really look at this carefully. It looks like something from The Matrix. Wonderful shot with great detail... well done 10

Wow. The rotation of this really plays with perspective and the viewers concept of up and down. Great patterns

Very cool and abstract. Took me a second, I was so in awe of the windows...

The possibilities here are endless and wonderful. The idea of getting an up close view looking down on these guys while they wash windows hundreds of feet above the street is the first one that springs to mind. As it is, I'm afraid that there is not a lot about this image to make it really stand out.
