The best of the traffic light photos -- I like the lines, but not the telephone pole. Myabe just a little tighter crop on the left side.

another traffic light, but a really compelling one! The wires look really cool, i would have tried to get more of the post along the left side of the picture, it feels a bit thin to me.

good shot -- wish you'd left the pole off

I really like this shot. There is something about it that works for me. The lines, the colors. Really nice.

the phone lines are a bit distracting.

Nice colour saturation and lighting is spot on. Great shot, traffic lights seem to be very popular for this challenge.

I dig the way the lines help frame the photo, but I'm a little distracted by the telephone pole on the left -- cropping a little from the bottom and a little from the left would have cropped it out and left everything in proportion and in the same relative positions

Your idea was a good one. I'm sure there are many who will criticise the wires, but actually the way they are, I think they give good framing to your subject. The only thing I would change is the brown pole on the left hand side, crop it out and see what you think.

Great color, But show no artistic imagination. Sorry!

Yep, definitely a transitional state. I like the composition with the wires, but it still doesn't leap out at me.

Great thinking on the subject. I like the way its composed with the patern the wires are making in the background.

very original transition, focus just missed

nice framing of the subject. the powerlines frame the stoplight in quite well.

This is the best stoplight photo I have seen so far. I usually hate the fact that wires get in the way of good photos but these wires actually help frame your subject.. nice shot!

This weeks water drop.

Intersting composition, but the subject just is not all that compelling.

04/22/2002 02:22:00 PM
too bad the power lines have to be there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good shot, good colors.

stop
04/22/2002 01:25:00 PM
the wood pole takes away from it.

The pole to the left and the wires are distracting. Would a different angle help?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2002 08:42:00 AM
Maybe cropping the left side out a little more..hhmm. But a good shot

i like this VERY MUCH!

I like this traffic light picture over the others as the light fills the frame and is framed by nice leading lines. The overall framing works well.

Nice. the wires are horrible though, even though it looks like you've tried to frame them and compose them to add something. The wood pylon behind is also distracting. Great idea, but I think you should have tried a different set of lights.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very clear, but the compression is too high (72k of 150k)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2002 12:47:00 AM
This would be a more dramatic capture if you had taken this at a angle that cut out the wires. Maybe a closer straight up shot.
