"One eye commentator":
Terry: this image looms ominous above our heads. The capture is simply stunning. Congratulations on your 7th finish. To me, this is a ribbon.

This is the image I thought would ribbon for sure. Personally, I like it much more that the top 2 and 3 entries.

Edited for mistake.

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Just to know, this was not taken with the challenge in mind.
I was driving through NYC on a night where there was fog hanging in the skyscrapers.
It had been hot the day before and turned cold. That day the fog was incredible.

This shot was taken as i stuck half my body out the car window at the corner of 53rd and 3rd.
I looked up and snapped and when i saw what was in the viewfinder i knew it was my shot of the evening.

Yes it's a little soft...well, you try hand holding out of a car at 1/10 sec. The noise, well i do wish i had my 20D that night...

very nice image-GL
01/23/2005 10:35:15 PM
Interesting, but lacking the necessary crispness to make this a winner IMO. Very good angle and composition.
01/23/2005 06:46:28 PM
good luck
01/23/2005 04:18:46 PM
This shot reminds me of the Matrix, Blade Runner, and every other great Urban Sci-Fi movie. One of my favoites for the week. Great POV, and I just love the feel. 10

Love the fog. Great viewpoint. "Looming" is a very appropriate adjective to describe this photo. Good job.
01/23/2005 10:16:38 AM
they certainly are looming! i feel small - bump to 9
01/22/2005 10:39:38 PM
Wow! This works very nicely. A powerful image, haunting and stark.
01/22/2005 06:16:09 PM
Stunning! Very sci-fi.
01/22/2005 03:57:53 AM
great mood in this photo is created by dramatic lighting. one of my favorites
01/21/2005 10:25:06 PM
This just blows me away....................................10

I'm not sure why, but this just doesn't come off for me. Looks a bit cartoon-like, I guess. I'm probably being harsh, because it's a good photograph of a well composed scene. It just lacks appeal somehow. 5.

the building on the left in front seems out of focus, but other wise good job
01/19/2005 05:19:26 PM
Nice job. Great color!
01/18/2005 03:40:45 PM
Moody and effective.
01/18/2005 12:55:53 AM
Rich textures, atmosphere and a sence of menace. Very nice shot one of my top two.
01/17/2005 06:01:23 PM
I think I found the winner.
01/17/2005 03:37:32 PM
is this 2nd ave in the 50's nyc
01/17/2005 02:32:45 PM
A 10 for sure.
This is the most incredible archtectural image I have ever seen! I don't care who you are, I think I am in love.
01/17/2005 02:08:29 PM
I like the fog and the lighting - nice composition. This is in my top 3 for this challenge, but I'm guessing you might get some complaints about focus. While I would like to see some sharper detail in the closer parts of the buildings, the shapes and colors work so well that I don't really care. Good luck!
01/17/2005 12:01:32 PM
Really good photo,
A good way to show how different styles in buildings in a metropol can change the view, we should all try to look up abit more

All though i would probaly have removed some noise, but thats probaly also one of the few things i would alter about this picture.
01/17/2005 11:55:17 AM
this is so cool its like from a movie or something The fog is the icing on the cake :D Great job
01/17/2005 08:49:42 AM
this is a strong picture might not be just for the technical aspects
01/17/2005 07:28:07 AM
wow. this one is almost eerie. Excellent choice of angle and subject. Great Job
01/17/2005 07:13:59 AM
Nice angel and cool skies. The croping is also very good. But for my taste I dont like the architecture here.
01/17/2005 04:11:55 AM
The smoke really gives it a felling...9
01/17/2005 01:30:49 AM
Love to know how this was done! Fantastic.
