This photo has great feeling. Especially after reading the title! The buildings look huddled together like people, almost. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. Anyway, beautiful photo!!

This is great. I like the processing a lot except for the purpleish fringing. Still going in my favorites though. :)

Did you neat image this at all?

There are weird spos in the image where it looks completely like there was noise reduction, then there are other spots where there's a ton of noise. It's kind of odd.

It's such a beautiful image, but I think it could use more grain. Parts look to smooth. Still a really awesome photo, and should've place higher.

A stunningly atmospheric shot. I love the way that the seagull stands out.

'After NeatImage' might be a good title! Actually, despite the sweeping use of it, this is quite emotive and the application has possibly made this more impactful than the original, which looks like a pretty decent shot underneath it all.

Really cool picture. I love the cold tones, the sky's immensity make the city look like an enchanted island secluded from the rest of the world. The seagull is the cherry on top. Very nice, good luck!

This looks like it's out of a gothic comic book. Interesting image.

This is a little blown out, but I like the effect. Many subjects for the eye to ponder in this, but it doesn't feel too busy.

This one I just don't know about. The shrouded buildings feels distracting but the sharp Seagull craates a focus point. 6

Love the PP. Horizon seems a bit tilted though?

I really like the seagal flying across the top of the city.

Interesting.

Don´t take this as I percieve the shot to be illegaly edited, I don´t but I just don´t like the look in this image. Way too dramatic and this is overkill, too much dodge/burn for my taste (or whatever you used to get this) but this is just my personal taste, if you like this that should be all that matters. I gave it a 5 though because I like the composition and thought behind the shot but the final version isn´t to my taste. Good luck in the challenge.

Stunning picture. I sense a lot of dodge and burn - there is a slightly unreal, dreamy quality. But artistically one of my top three here. 10.

I'm not sure if reality actually looks like this. 4

This is a great picture, maybe neat imaged too much, but on the other hand this gives the picture a dreamy look. Good job!!! :))

Weird colors. Like the seagull though.

Has the same artistry as a Zeuszen picture: that's a high compliment!

I would have liked this better with less sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 08:18:47 PM
I kind of like it but I think many voters say it is out of focus, too soft or something. But I can see the bird is cristal sharp!

Well, you picked the right conditions to go out and shoot this. The quality of light seems very good and the blue cast is effective. I think you may have gon slightly overboard on the dodging and burning, but it is a very well done shot. THere seems to be some "jaggies" and artifacts, so I would have a second look at how you are compressing your images. If you need help in doing so, feel free to PM me.

Beautiful. Lighting, compostion, and all your image manipulation demonstrate a great feel for light. Thank you for that!
