That's one interesting landmark, looks like a nut, upside down smile ... Like this night shot it makes this metalic bean look like a UFO at night. Only think I dislike abou the shot are the 4 lights below the bean (especially the 2nd from the left), very distracting maybe a low angle might have helped. Still cool shot.

Love this shot at night much better than the daytime shots. You got a very nice light surrounding the Bean andn the reflection is perfect. Good job.

Challenge link: very strong - a striking image

Image critique: the centred view is very powerful emphasising the structure very nicely. The tungsten cast is a bit overpowering but it arguably adds something of a sci-fi feel to the shot in the process. Love those reflections and it's a pretty good exposure with only a few hot spots.

Out-of-challenge appeal: yup - I like it

Are you being abducted by aliens over there? :) it's a really nice picture i like the relfex on the "Bean". But the top party is being similar to the background like black on black. But thats just my opinion. Nice bean. :)

great job on what i think is a very difficult subject.

I can't believe it... two photos... of the same thing, with the same title.... this is the more interesting take though... (i have seen the exact same version of the other shot on this site... technically very good. 7.
