...the fisheye lens works to create a surreal heavenly arch.....which truly inspires!

I love to go back and rediscover a photo I thought was spectacular......then look down and realized I voted the highest mark! Makes me feel confident in what I like. Is this MOMA? Where is it? This, to me is the quintessential sober, inspiring, truth picture.....I want to hang it some where in my space where the morning light finds it.....and I can see it first thing in the morning.....it makes me realize I need to spend my time on earth the best way I possibly can.....

Great image, congratulations.

This is very true, and it is kind of you to remember those.

Congrats on the ribbon, love the perspective and size of the structure, the people kind if get lost and seem insignificant yet add to the photo.

I love the openness, the vastness of this shot. It would be meaningless without the people, but with them... it's great. Excellent.

Impressive architecture, great framing and use of the human figures to illustrate scale. Not necessarily moving though, or perhaps it would if seen printed large format. Very good, competent work,

Great perspective and lines. Really get a sense of depth with the person walking.

No "Baghead" comment here Mita! I really love this shot! It reminds me of sailing but the angle also gives it an "M.C. Escher" effect with the people standing above, then the stairs, then the people below. This is an awesome capture...just great composistion and feel. I definitely see this on the front page! GO LONGSHOOTS!!!!

This is really wonderful and, for me, the perfect expression of 'emotive architecture". I am voting 9
for this. IReally well done!

Front page, well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2012 09:26:24 PM
Amazing composition. I love you got the human elements that bring perspective of the grandeur of this whole place. Its mesmerizing and even difficult to understand how the whole structure works. The lighting is almost magical... Excellent work, Mita. Go Long Shots!!!
