Brilliant. Could benefit from more cropping though?

I like the newer one best :)
Nicely done!

Excellent shot! I like both the retired and this one about the same. I like the retired because of the shadowing in the photo and this one has great detail. Beautiful!!

Congrats!

O yea... why lower expectations? Mainly because this particular picture (that ribboned) in a way, is not an original. Basically, I haven't taken this shot because of the title of the challenge, I kind of recycled it.

I know the title 'Framed' is a bit obvious, but that was the name of the original and I decided to go with it.

PS
Sorry about my English skills, still thinking in Croatian :)

350 votes?! I'm amazed... Thank you for your votes and comments!

I must say - I've had lower expectations for this one. Why? Well, there is a little story behind it and maybe some of you might find it interesting or useful.
This particular picture is in fact a recreation of one of my earlier photos. The original photo was taken about 6 months ago, won a few contests and was proudly retired. Those contests had nothing to do with framing or any other theme, just an ordinary POTD contests.
Then, I saw 'Framing' contest on DPC... I remembered the retired photo and decided to repeat the shooting session, not only to follow the DPC rules, but to find out what has changed in 6 months regarding my shooting skills and such... The important thing was not to look at the original photo because that would have killed the experiment. However, as I had found out later, there was a downside to this - two pictures were not taken at the same time of the day (nor the same time of the year for that matter).
So... went on the location, took a few shots, picked one picture, cropped it, adjusted levels and shadow/highlight ratio, played with curves, resized the edited picture and here we are.
Any improvement in 6 months? That's for you to judge, here's the older picture.

Congrats on 2nd place, very well done. I was scared this photo would beat me during the competition =).

Congrats on your 2nd place finish, and your second ribbon.

I must say I am impressed at your porfolio and your

Your average of 6.4100 is nothing short of wow!

Well Done!

more contrast, within the frame highlighting the tree vs the buildings would have added more to the pic...all the same nice picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2004 07:28:52 PM
cool shot, is that tree natural? looks kinda bonzai-ish from this angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2004 06:06:10 PM
I love this. The frame is wonderful and the lone tree is perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2004 04:06:47 PM
Shame about the too tight crop but this is exactly what the challenge calls for.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2004 11:09:21 AM
This is a great photograph of a framed tree and city, it is one of my favourites and give it a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2004 08:23:20 AM
I like this one even though I think tighter cropping may have helped
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2004 08:14:55 AM
WOW!
that's a superb shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2004 04:59:00 AM
Good shot, well centered and good detail. Cropping few pixels at the top and at the bottom probably would be better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2004 05:05:04 PM
This is my favourite image in the challenge. It's almost surreal. Great capture, well thought out.
What I wish for is another version of the same image without excessive sharpening.

Still is my favourite and still don't like the halos.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2004 02:47:05 PM
I feel that a closer crop would give this composition even more impact. The subject matter is extremely interesting backed by the beautiful clouds and the cityscape. "8"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2004 02:41:41 PM
Top 10 image here in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2004 03:31:58 AM
Nice shot, but pity it was cloudy, as I would have liked to have seen the top of the mountain.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2004 12:37:54 AM
Great shot! Good luck in the challenge!

Nice subject and framing is excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2004 01:14:34 AM
My girlfriend says you should have cropped a little from the top. I think it's perfect though. Nicely done. - 9

Good subject
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2004 11:15:14 AM
Nice, I just don't dig the off balance thing happening, like the building's tilted to the left
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 11:58:43 PM
Finally! A picture where I can see the framing instantly, and where the subject through the frame is appealing and there are no awkward shadows. Very nice! One of my 3 favorites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 08:52:13 PM
This is an elegant image,. I enjoy the wonderful job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 08:02:54 PM
If this shot had been a *little* less tilted, I would have scored it an extra point. It's a *gorgeous* framing work.. but the tilt juusst puts it off for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 07:02:34 PM
Very strong and straight to the point. The title could be less obvious.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 06:14:21 PM
Good shot. The stone-work generally seems to lack a little punch - I would personally have pushed it a little harder with curves or something, just to bring out the contrast there more. That said, that quality does allow the compositional thing with the tree to come out well. Can't quite see it on the front page, but I couldn't say why it doesn't deserve to be there. very good, actually. 9

A deep blue sky would have pushed this right over the edge. But lovely as it is, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2004 10:18:43 AM
cool

09/02/2004 12:14:13 AM
This is beautiful. Maybe a little too symetrical for my taste, but that is just personal preference.

One of my favorites, love the contrast of the green on the tree against the pale columns. Fits challenge perfectly.

09/01/2004 03:51:42 AM
This is lovely. Great work. I love the green accent amongst all the dull greys.
