i thought would be interesting to capture two different sources of light...electric and solar...one abstract simbolized by the wiring electric network and the other one, real, represented by the natural solar energy...to empzasize the ideea of competition of the two, electric energy versus solar energy, electric lighting versus solar lighting, i thought that the shilouete of the second projected on the sunset would emphasize my ideea...

this is unquestionable a beautiful image. in my opinion, the meeting the challenge aspect is a bit stretched (even with your title taken into account). but in terms of photographic merits, this is a very lovely picture. it's sharp, in focus, colours are terrific - as is your timing with the sun behind the clouds and it's rays being clearly evident. could've been a winner in the silhouette challenge we had recently.

Nice, very clean image.

An alternative interpretation of the challenge! I see no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to do this. I hope you're not voted down for it.

An excellent photo, good contrast, sharp, lovely colours. But too big of a leap to connect this to the challenge...

Good shot. I do have to say that I have one like this. I framed the sun into one of the triangles in the tower.

I can't see multiple light sources here, but anyway, this is one of my choices for a top 10. I love it.

A more philosophical approach to the challenge, but I like it

I don't see multiple sources of light on this.
Great picture and idea, just not meeting the challenge.
Great symbolism, but alas, one one source of light actually depicted....
Stunning colors by the way - love the shot.

Very cool picture, although I question whether it quite meets the challenge.

How is this obvious use of multiple light sources and how is that use a key factor in your composition?

I saw a comment on another challenge about the practice of normally removing power lines from photos using PS or similar. This is another good reason toleave them in.

Nice image, although I would have put the power Pylon further to the right (3rd's?)

Very nice photo, great colors and composition. I believe you have one source of light here. Electricity as a component of the photo is a neat idea but it wasn't used here to illuminate your subject. Does not meet the challenge imo. adding points to photo quality - 6

Interesting take on the theme--some voters may have trouble "seeing" the multiple light sources, but your title should help. I like it--7

Are Dual and multiple the samething? I appologize if I'm too picky! Other than that, very good photo!
