Congratulations on 4th place. This was one of the first photographs I viewed and like 37 others thought well deserving of a 10. Actually I thought I had a chance untill I saw this and then thought oh well... there's always the next challenge. This is such an awesome photograph.I have already added it to my favourites

Perfect execution of the theme in a creative and artistic way. Good one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great colors, don'like the frame much, maybe if it were a little thinner. The composition is very good as are the details. Very nice! Good Luck.

I see these pivot irrigation systems all the time and have played around with ideas for good shots. You've captured that exactly in your shot. It's beautiful and very well done. A very creative response to the challenge, IMO, and well worth the effort. Bumping from 6 to 7.

Beautiful! Love your choice!

ribbon contender. best of the lot. great job. thanks for sharing this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The orange colors are stunning - and the vanishing point is superb. Suggestions for improvement: a) Crop off about 1/2 (or more) of the black area at the bottom. b) Save it less compressed so that you don't have the wavy area in the orange sky. (You are allowed 150k - and you used les that 70k.)

It's a really nice submission - very graphic and effective.

08/15/2004 07:19:12 PM
I think it would improve this to crop about half of the solid black from the bottom to put more enphasis on the upper part

Good color. Refreshing change to see curves instead of straight lines.

I'm not sure if this qualifies for vanishing point, but it's a very nice photo.

If thats not your own property, sell this to the owner...nice shot.

08/12/2004 07:09:09 PM
beautiful shot, but I'm not sure if it illustrates the concept of parallel lines converging.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great concept and execution. The black border is the perfect compliment for that sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Stunning composition!
Great use of negative space and repetitive shapes.
A well-deserved ((9)) and one of my top 5 favorites in this challenge!

Reducing the sharpening would prevent the haloing and make for a more pleasing photo.

Very Creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 04:11:28 AM
the bottom is a little bit too black for my taste. Not too black, more like too much foreground. It look s as if your frame is thin at the top and sides and thick at the bottom.

Nice capture though, very well waited.
