Wow! Awesome!

I don't know exactly what time of day it is in this photo, but that is why it seems so mysterious! Evening/Night is my favorite time to shoot! I can't believe your exposure was only 8 seconds long! Beautiful!

Gorgeous photo with excellent tones and an amazingly smooth reflection. Very nicely done!
04/19/2005 10:05:33 PM
First reaction=wow. Terrific job. Detail from such a distance is impressive. 9
04/18/2005 11:29:22 PM
How sad, right on the riverside and the sight will grow uglier as time passes. Will somebody fixed this. 7
04/18/2005 08:55:01 PM
Wow! This is a stunning shot!! Great job!
04/18/2005 03:55:33 PM
nice touches
04/18/2005 10:51:47 AM
Beautiful photograph.
04/18/2005 05:02:29 AM
Wow. If this hadn't been validated, I'd suspect it of advanced editing. How did you find the perfectly still water?
04/18/2005 03:17:22 AM
Very fine photograph!
Noticed it was validated, but rightly don't understand why someone would request a DQ on this.
Nice job!
04/17/2005 06:00:56 PM
thats an impressive building and the capture is doing justice to this
04/17/2005 08:28:42 AM
Very nice picture! I like the color and contrast. One of my favorite. 10
04/16/2005 09:36:28 PM
Lovely shot - building is not readily apparent as abandoned, but it's still a very lovely shot!
04/16/2005 08:08:39 PM
Reflexions are nearly perfect. Don't know how you did it. 8
04/16/2005 06:12:25 PM
Wow!! Way to go! You have succeeded in creating an AMAZING, stand-out WOW picture in a 498-entry challenge!!! This is SO pretty!! Good luck for a ribbon! 10 (of course)
04/16/2005 02:43:25 AM
I think this is my second 9 given yet....hope you ribbon ! I would of gave you a 10 but you could of used better texture detail on the building....great !!
04/16/2005 02:06:46 AM
Perfect lighting, perfect reflection...the way to make an ugly building look nice! Well done..
04/15/2005 07:21:46 PM
This is one of the best in the challenge IMO. This photo is exceedingly well composed and the reflection is wonderful. I see some blue lights,maybe you will get the blue ribbon. Good luck!
04/15/2005 05:10:05 PM
Lovely composed shot
04/15/2005 04:05:00 PM

04/15/2005 01:38:12 AM
Really nice image, nice tones, well thought out and different, thanks
04/14/2005 10:33:10 PM
Very nice, the reflection in the river is great 8
04/14/2005 03:10:28 PM
Wow! I love everything about this. The rich color, the great reflection, the lights and their role in the interesting compostion, and the looming old building. A 10 for me!
04/14/2005 01:44:39 PM
great shot.
04/14/2005 11:49:46 AM

04/14/2005 10:52:56 AM
a bit closer to the building would have been better IMO.
04/13/2005 11:53:20 PM
This is truly a beautiful shot, hope to see it in the top ten! 10
04/13/2005 10:52:06 PM
Almost surreal. The sky is super and adds to the atmosphere.
04/13/2005 07:56:48 PM

04/13/2005 08:23:35 AM
A beautiful shot but the water makes it look very unreal. It looks like a mirror image with no ripples in the water. Excellent shot with great colors and clarity. Well done and good luck in this challenge.
04/13/2005 08:21:49 AM
Nice evening picture <6>
04/13/2005 07:24:55 AM
Good composition, nice angle on the ruin. Very effective light, nice reflections, the key light (and its reflection) is positioned just right. One of the best.
04/13/2005 05:27:34 AM
Well Taken
04/13/2005 03:58:09 AM
Wow! This shot is beautiful.
