The mirrored globe give a great 360 view to this photo...top-notch contrast and tones. Nice job of keeping yourself out of the reflection as well!

Wonderful image. Among best in show. B&W was inspired. Composition is superb. Subject matter is intriguing. The perfect trifecta. If this doesn't finish in the top 10, I'll kill myself!

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Wow, I love this - has a slight ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' dougi555 feel about it but I'm really not sure - I'd expect to see higher contrast across the whole frame if it were, but then the emphasis on the sphere would be lost. I really like the way the image is about so many things - the building, the figure, the sphere, the water - all there, all contributing but none dominating to the exclusion of the other elements.

Critical stuff: I still wonder about how it would look with a crisper, more contrasty background / building-scape....

Overall: A very fine image of a most interesting scene.
