I like this very much.
In what is a predominantly light image, I think the darkened sky adds the necessary contrast and helps balance it.
Really nice work.

This is a striking image but you've overcooked it with the sky treatment. I just don't think it needed it. Nicely observed shot with good light and colour.

Great shot, I think the sky is overdone. Great Idea though. -6

This reminds me of a cingular commercial. I like everything but the sky. Seems a bit too dark.

Sky is a tad overburned, interesting image otherwise

Great tone and contrast! There's quite a lot of noise in the sky, while the rest of the image is/appears clean. Maybe you could just blur it out? Good composition as well.

Ah, here it is. This was an eye catcher amongst all the thumbnails. Just a couple of things disturb: such a regular scene surely cries out for a more regular composition? Shoting from more directly in line with the scaffolding as a whole would have spread the lens/perspective distortion more evenly through the frame and made those effects less intrusive, perhaps. And the sky: I really don't like whatever has gone on there - it just seems so out of place, being so dark.

that's that out of the way. Apart from the above, this is an enormously likeable shot - the light is spectacular, and your capturing of it likewise marvellous. Detail, texture. visual interest, the lot. Great work.

This one made me smile, not just because of the hope in the title - it's a fantastic image. It might be nice without the grain in the sky, but it also looks like you might have wanted it there.

Good clean colors and textures, but the sky clashes with it terribly. 6
