Evening from the Critique Club:

This is a very striking photo, with a great perspective. The composition is good, and the layers draw your eyes toward the dome area at the top. It kind of gives you a bit of vertigo!
Technically, as somebody mentioned below, the dome seems a tiny bit over exposed, although that brings a lovely lightness to the image further down, so I really can't say much about that. I think it would have been nicer if you could have added the one pattern which is at the bottom curve, the one with the circles. Nothing more to say about that!
Meeting the challenge.... hmmmm......... I'm not sure, the person really isn't that hidden, I can understand that a lot of people had great difficulty getting the people into their pictures, but this guys head just sticks out!
My opinion, a very striking photo and enjoyable to view.

Beautiful shot althought the dome is a bit over exposed. You could have almost used the painting as Waldo. Good job.

This is a beautiful photo.. I'm not sure who you are considering Waldo. I see three people right off the bat: one is standing, leaning over the rail on the second landing, one is beside him, and on the bottome right hand corner, there appears to be someone between the railing, which would actually be a better job of hiding. Or it at least gives the impression of hiding. Nice one

Great photo. Really nice and clear, with the multiple layers very well positioned within the composition. 10

Very good composition.. there is a clear line running through the picture which draws your eye to the person and I just love the curves..

Nicely done. I like the lighting and the curved lines of your composition. If the person was towards one of the corners of the photo, he'd be "more" hidden.

I really like the curves. Flows very nice. The light on top seems a overly harsh. I still like the feel of your shot. Good luck. Jacko. 8

Good pic. Meets the challenge.

There weren't really too many places you could hide Waldo in this photo! It's good, nice idea, great shot. What's that just to the left of Waldo? Is that someone's head?

Waldo spotted! Nice patterns, but the upper rotunda is on the washed out side. This building looks familiar......Very good focus, nice framing, color seems O.K. Interest - moderate to high (mostly due to the patterns) This might be a good subject for next week's challenge of rythme........8 Swash

Very nice picture, and "waldo" is great because he blends in with the dark part of the all the lamps. 9.

Nice classical type of "Where's Waldo". The painting on the level below is a good decoy - was that deliberate or good luck? It's an interesting perspective of a building which I'm sure I've seen in other submissions before. Focus is crisp and the way the top level is washed out is interesting. Well done.

I like the idea you used for this picture. I think that this was done very nicely. The lighting for thispicture was aloso done very nicely. Nice Work

Meets challenge AND is a good photo.
02/10/2003 08:27:56 PM
Really nice shot - love it.
02/10/2003 07:46:49 PM
I see 2, maybe 3 Waldo's. Visual impact is not very striking, too bad you couldn't have taken in the entire building with a wider lens.
02/10/2003 07:37:57 PM
Very nice perspective.
02/10/2003 06:03:50 PM

Great composition and good focus. Lack of colours is just perfect. Good luck!

Really good job on the challenge although I am getting a bit tired of seeing similar photos on here. I guess it'll stop when they stop winning! Nice job.
