Challenge: 100 Years Old (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenges 2009
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Mainz
Date: Mar 8, 2009
Date Uploaded: Mar 8, 2009

The large structure in the background is the Mainz Dom - cathedral. They will celebrate in August the "birth" of the Dom - the inauguration was in 1009. Ain't that something? As far as I know, all the other buildings are at least 100 years old, too. I didn't check though - figured the Dom pretty much met the challenge. :-)

Well I didn't get to vote in this one but I would have know this was yours. You have a style that I like.

This is a great shot, its completed by all the subjects in it, and the processing doesn't look too tacky. Its title probably hurt this even though it fits the challenge 100%. I guess it could have placed higher.

Awesome shot. I didn't get to it while voting, but there are a lot of things I like with this image -- the main building has a lot of lines and angles, yet, the curves on the ground counter that nicely. But, beyond that, I like it because it looks so strong and confident.

Figured this one was yours Deb! Getting good at guessing now. Probably it was the German look that gave it away this time :) Nice score, well done.

Nice pov. A more interesting sky would have been even better.

The b/w really adds to this shot. The circular lines add interest to the rigid structure lines, and the straight line in the foreground draws the eye to the center with the pedestrian. A little overlit in the second store facade.

Amazing amount of detail, and nice leading lines into the frame. I wish the sky were a bit more dramatic, but this is essentially an excellent shot.

I am so envious of people who live where things are this old! Very good B&W conversion here.
