This was one of my favorites, because I thought it was extremely interesting & appealing. It should have placed in the top three!

Congrats, man! I had a feeling this was yours...your pony tail gives it away every time...not that we were looking at your pony tail this time, anyway... ;o)

Great tones, gravity has it's way here for sure.

This would have made a good comparison shot. :)

tighter crop on the sides... awesome shot otherwise

Very Imaginative, good shot, like your tonal range too.

Unique idea, definitely shows gravity at work

interesting, but the border is bit large for me (not distracting enough to lose points over though)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this, but I have one suggestion. centering the two figures in shot would have made this much stronger, compositionally, in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/25/2004 11:27:15 PM
well done! I think the very unique and creative setup makes this shot.

clever...
08/24/2004 09:23:24 PM
that's a rather unflattering shot ..
08/24/2004 09:15:08 PM
Good lighting and great sky. I like your composition but don't think I ever want to see a grown man doing a naked handstand again. lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 06:29:13 PM
excelent idea and title.
The two towers are bit close togeather, maybe a bit diffrent angle to give a little more pace between.

Great composition, strong B/W, sense of humor, technically perfect. 10

Great interpretation! I like this shot. Why the hat?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 04:43:42 PM
cool concept and very athletic model. I think I would have preferred it without the hat though. Seems to infere with the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 11:17:25 AM
This is very artistically done. The b/w image makes it all the more effective. I also like that you can't tell if it is a man or a woman lending to the effect of great artistry.

This is an excellent photo and is so original and different as well. I hope you go well with this one [8]

Nice idea and B&W...I like the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 07:12:01 AM
great tonal range, well exposed and composed. (also a very nice straight handstand sir)

My only gripe is the main focus of the photograph. I can't see why you have included the ugly tower. Your figure takes all the attention because it's well lit and it's at the forefront - so the tower is a secondary thought.

Without that this picture would be a 10. With much nice blank space giving the photo room to breath.

Ingenious and well composed! I love how you and the model did such a good job getting the two "towers" lined up perfectly .. and those clouds scattered in the background make for a nice, subtle touch.

PS. Make sure to tell the model he has a nice butt! ;) :D

Funny and very good.
08/23/2004 11:11:37 PM
Well, that different.
08/23/2004 06:45:55 PM
This would be SO much more powerful without the distraction of the baseball cap... but I can overlook that. I also think an angle more to the right, losing the tree/shrub and putting the tower and the model in vertical thirds would be very nice. Good job, love the B & W tones. :o)

This reminds me of a game we used to play called "knives, forks, spoons, cut it"... I have no idea what the words meant really... This is wonderfully creative and unusual. I love the choice of black and white and the way the clouds are so pale against the rich darkness of the sky. I love the shadows and light on the muscles and the way that gravity makes the bottom muscles fall into an upside down love heart. I think I'd prefer to have less empty space to the left and just a small touch more to the right but... it works very well as it is. One of my top 3.

High marks for the composition, tones and effort that went into this image. Simply beautiful!

Nice idea, but why do you/does he have a hat on your/his head?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 11:14:36 AM
Interesting shot, I'm not sure why a naked guy is doing a handstand near a tower, but the black and white textures are great. The clouds work particularly well. A fun, quirky shot that works nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 10:30:46 AM
great idea
08/23/2004 08:40:38 AM
Did you shave your but?
08/23/2004 07:25:05 AM
LOL :-))) Really creative idea. I like B&W presentation a much and the parallel lines of your model and the tower. The plants on the left draw my attention a bit away, I would have cut them.

A for effort, but from the title I automatically make connections to the WTC twin towers and as a New Yorker I find the 'comparison' a bit insulting or rather tasteless. But I will not score you lower because of this, just wanted to point it out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:27:54 AM
would have liked better without the hat, otherwise nice photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 12:27:23 AM
Good composition. I like the crispness of this shot and the way it makes me laugh because I did not think any of the guy pictures would be good. This one makes me eat my words. Great work! Good luck.
