Hehe, well done, a first place and a 5th place from essentially the same shot.... thats what I call efficiency!. The funny thing is that in both circumstances you met the challenge perfectly.

As for the execution... I didn't really like the original.. but this one is a really great shot. Good job of learning from your past efforts and improving.

Im also curious as to how big these replicas are? Im assuming they arent lifesize like the real thing (by real thing I mean the ones in China) ??

Oh the history! Great choice of b/w. Although I would normally not like a shot this oversharpened but it works here. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/31/2004 06:45:54 PM
Great subject and a nice shot. i always truggle with shots like this though: a great subject - but would it look great anyway? I don't know whether to award many points for creativity here since it's pretty much point and shoot at the amazing scene.

It's clear (over-sharp) and impressive, but in my view it lacks the input of creative flair to make it stunning. Will probably score well though.

A very rich image meeting and surpassing the constraints of the challenge. Freat. Bumping up.

Definitely one of the better shots of the challenge. An excellent find, and an excellent entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! How can I compete with this kind of subject? Great composition, and excellent detail throughout the image. This looks like publishable work to me.

I have seen this before on DPC only
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2004 04:20:18 PM
Nice work, great choice. There seems to be a slight bluring on the bottom, and right edges, no deduction here, as it is hardly noticeable.

seems a little grainy. otherwise awsom shot. where was this taken? I didnt think that there was that many "terakota?" soldiers in one area.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2004 10:42:30 AM
Wow! How can we compete with that?!?! Good DOF. If the colors of the image were good, I probably would not have chosen B&W. However, I gave you a 10 (my only one in this challenge) because you met the challenge criteria, captured a very unique composition, and made it all work. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This picture is spectacular - your implied lines are simple yet complicated. Well Done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my favorites of yours (I recognize) recycled! I was going to write you a note in fact telling you that this would be great for this challenge. Hoever, I am not sure I like this black and white treatment as well as the other. Seems to be a dottiness/grain to it the other didn't have (I recall).
