This is the most original and artistic of the top 3, altho all are well done. I just love the concept here, and very nice composition.

Congratulations on your yellow! A great capture that defies the virtues of balance. A great image.

Thanks for all the great comments. Got some "It's not realy late night". Some people probably just thought the pictures should be taken at night. I took this late night. Took it around 23:15 or something like that. And it matters if you take the picture in Iceland where the sun sets much later than in souther parts of the world :)

I would have liked to clean out the sensor dirt on the left like some of you pointed out. But being a open challenge that is not allowed.

Here is a cleaner version of the shot. I would like to have submitted it like this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/332/thumb/176912.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/332/thumb/176912.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Yep, I really not to degrade, but this clearly should have scored higher than all three ribbon winners.

This should have gotten first. This one looks a lot better.
You got robbed. Nice Work.

Great night shot. This is the first time I see something interesting with this house which I find rather ugly. Excellent work! 10

Great shot, was you talking to Alfreð ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2005 12:54:29 PM
This is probably the best one in the bunch. I'm seeing border for this one and not only because it's Icelandic...

Great use of color and light. The person adds an air of mystery.

really interesting composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice colors in this photo! What an interesting building. The reflections on the water look really good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2005 10:48:26 PM
Very nice shot. I don't think the person helps it though. The middle legs are barely visable and he takes the eye away from the great lighting effect at the base of the building.
05/06/2005 08:44:12 PM
I love this shot. It's a beautiful composition and the colors are just right (for a night-shot). Just a great shot!

awesome architectural design really makes this photo, with the size to scale added with the person standing by it. lighting is very nice... really dont see anything wrong with this photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 11:39:09 PM
Wow, almost looks like he's/shes's standing on water
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:31:12 PM
What a cool structure... wonderful colors and angle, looks like something from a futuristic movie! Good Luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:19:51 PM
Like the use of the figure, not many have a person in frame
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 07:05:29 PM
Wow, this is my kinda picture.
A tiny bit too dark round the top and too bad about the dust blotch to the left, could have been a 10.
My only 9 on this challenge.

Great use of the fading daylight to silhouette the subject. Love the architectural shapes and the reflections in the water. What is the blurred area in the foreground??? Nice work.

this is beautiful, i love the two colors and the sky on the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 03:03:52 PM
Great lighting. Is there a spot of dust on your sensor (halfway up the frame on the left)? I like the silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 12:12:56 PM
Nice shot. Compositionally very good - love the perspective. Colors seem to be just right. I like the ocntrast between the black and the blue, on the ground and sky. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 10:03:35 AM
Wonderful with the figure in the shot, makes this a 9 for me.

Fantastic Lighting. A real postcard image......9.......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 07:14:25 AM
Love the mood of this. Have you got some dirt on your sensor - LHS just below centre? Doesn't interfere - well captured, nice and sharp, the angular building serves the mood well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 05:36:00 AM
Love the shape of the building! Perfect sky! Very nice! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

bizarre architecture! nice capture..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 01:25:55 AM
great photo, awesome composition. May be picky and just my interpretation of "late night", but how late was the shot - interested because of the pink glow on the horizon. Still a great shot.

Like the colors and comp 8
