Great job! Crisp focus, good exposure. The sky adds that extra pizazz!

Returning for comments
The sky gives this a magical feel. I would have liked to have seen the towers more off to the right though - of course I don't know what's on the left side of the border. In any event, good work 8

Lovely sky backdrop. I like this lighting a lot, and the great range of black to white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2004 10:03:31 AM
Very nice tones. I'd have liked some other composition, but goes like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Talk about capture right place at the right time. Well balanced and composed

Wow, very striking image. Captures the spirit of the epic trilogy nicely. Oh, I wish I was a hobbit, with little furry feet, with a wizard for a friend and some elven bread to eat.

Excellent subject and composition. I really like how you captured the sky. 8

Bumping up.

Well Done! ((8))

that's pretty good. i take it it was a sunny day, the front of the building looks super smooth with the light hitting it, nice shadows on the curve of the tiles.

Congratulations, well performed shot! (9)

Great job with this one. The church (I would presume) stands out well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/19/2004 11:29:52 AM
Well I like it. It's the best lanscape shot of the challenge IMO. I unfortunately just havn't found a lanscape shot in B&W that I didn't think would look better in color. (my own included). But this one has good focus and shadows. It is also interesting to look at.

Three Towers?

Oh My, a real Artist did this one.

11/17/2004 03:33:44 PM
ooh ef ég hefði nú bara drattast út að taka mynd núna. Þessi er æði, skýin verulega dramatísk. Hefði kannski fundist hún enn betri ef hún hefði verið minna miðjusett.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2004 01:53:55 PM
Wow, nice crisp exposure.

Þessi er bara geðveik! Besta mynd sem ég hef nokkurntíman séð af Háteigskirkju og ég hef séð þær margar. 10 í einkunn. Ég veit að það má svo ekki í Basic editing en ef ég væri þú myndi ég "klóna" burt ljósastaurinn niðri í hægra horninu, hann stingur dálítið í augun.

For those of you who don´t speak Icelandic I am just simply drooling over this image...

Very nice shot, nice moody lighting 10

Wow, certainly the most dramatic photo I've ever seen of Háteigskirkja!
