This has been inspired by Carl Warner, who uses everyday objects to create visual puns in his commercial works.

I am quiet pleased with this, done simply using screws and bolts! Against a gradueted background using my laptop screen. Shot in a glass table and to make a river reflection more apparent I wet the whole table and it gave a more rippl-y effect.

I'm hoping for a 6+ score againnnnnnnnnnnnn... pretty please

great take on the tried screw landscape. like the lighting and good use of background to highlight the silhouet, top 10 for sure.

Superb. Beautiful. I love the blue tones and the stark contrasts.

I like the idea and the concept of city at night. Very good.

The best screw/nut/bolt pic outta the group.. I think its the gradient and reflections that make this a ribbon winner,,,

Congrats in advance.. 10

Great idea, with very good colors and detail.

Very pleasing composition and colour scheme, although perhaps a tad over-sharpened for my taste. Nonetheless, an excellent entry.

I like this one, I think the silhouette approach used to abstract the actual items here gives a stronger execution of the concept that the many other entries based on this set up. The blue graduation and rippled reflections really give it depth.

Nice sillouette, i'd like to have this as a panorama.

This city scape is kind of week because of the equal space between all of the buildings.
04/11/2008 12:11:34 AM
Great silhouettes. Fantastic work on the lighting and colours. Love the use of what looks to be real liquid for water :)

love the color and reflection

nice imaginative, bright color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A great interpretation of that pic on carlwarner.com. I really like the silhouette and the lack of depth between the buildings. I think this is an improvement on the original.

I like these nuts and bolts landscapes. I'd never seen it before, but it looks like a lot of people had the same idea for the challenge. Yours is quite well done and I like that it is silhouetted. The graduated sky is nice too.

Nice colours

Great idea; nice silhouette. Wish the reflection were complete and not cut off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 07:07:44 PM
nice silhoutte - a nice twist on a familiar theme
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 02:54:27 PM
This is nice, a bit different from the other cityscapes with nuts and bolts in the challenge, because you made it a silhouette. I really like the small arched one and the rippled reflection.

I like the use of reflections and the colors. Your use of a bridge is a nice variation from the other cityscapes.

great lighting and thirds, looks very futuristic. 7

Nice reflecton and silhoette, the photo could be bigger though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 06:20:52 AM
There's been a few of this idea but I think this is the best executed - only thing stopping a 10 is the lack of depth. The reflection is superb though!

this is so creative, i like it
