While I don’t actually LIVE in this tower, I have spent almost 20 years in its shadow, first as a young man and then as an employee of the museum across the street. It was one of the very first really nice days of Spring we’ve had and I enjoyed walking around snapping away as usual.

Ah -- Thought this might have been done by my buddy Mike (Lycafos) since he lives right near there! I, too, "lived" there for a few years, but not as a student. My office was right across the street, beside Soldiers and Sailor's Hall. Glad to see this did pretty well... that's a pretty cool building to shoot.

The distorted building is great.

That looks just like a building designed for Superman to leap over ... good use of the trees and clouds to frame a really cool piece of architecture.

wonderful perspective.

Dramatic composition and an impressive building. Just a touch more grass would have 'anchored' the shot.

Nice view, good angle!

I haven´t quite made up my mind if the tree to the left and top is distracting or not... :)

Like the angle. Good placement on the structure. The grass is just spot on how much you have off it. Good job.

Wow - that's just incredible. Beautiful shot, one of my favorites so far in the challenge.

Nice composition - placement of the white cloud is effective.
04/26/2004 03:34:12 PM
Um... Lycafos? Just a guess :)

wow, what a great building

Nice. Lighting a bit harsh, middle of the day? Early morning or dusk would have given a more interesting atmosphere.
