Gotta score this high....8

a window, but your perspective is really deceiving like that skylight pic. great job, i love it. it would be just a tiny bit more perfect if the shot was slightly more symmetical. also, it would probably look awesome if you reshot it a little sharper in black & white with some clouds - a more prolific sky.

good idea and angle.
05/13/2003 01:03:54 PM
I like how the angle of the photo gives it depth.

Fantastic perspective. What really works for me is the gradient-like effect in the sky starting from deep blue in the left to white in the right.

Fantastic perspective shot. This is really great. I think this will be in the top 5 if not the top 3. Very well done. I like the illusion that this is laying down vs. being the front of a building (or the side i suppose). Great concept and great shot. - 10

this is awesome. good eye to find this, and well composed (symmetry!).

This is a very, very unique and imaginative shot. I really like the perspective and the interpretation of the challenge. My only comment is the crispness of the shot, DOF. LOL What would have been out of this world would have been if there were a bird sitting on one of the steps (of your pool)!!!

The perspective on this shoot is so great. I wish the sky was not blown out on the right, but still awesome!

THIS IS GREAT!!!!! It's like a 'Gestallt' kind of thing: Looking once, you see up a church, looking twice you got a neat sci-fi surreal looking swimming-pool. Maybe after the challenge you could 'paste in' some old women in bathing in bathing-suits. ;o)

Fascinating perspective -- because the composition is so formal, I'd like to see the window centered in the frame, though. I like!

This is a great idea and you have me ready to dive in. There is something about your exposure and clarity of the building detail that could use improvement. Did you use a tripod,high f stop, and long exposure? If not I think it would bring out the detail and give you a much sharper result. 6

nice idea
05/09/2003 08:04:14 PM
This is a great illusion type of shot where you don't know if it's a building looking up, or a pool at the bottom of a bunch of steps.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2003 04:41:30 PM
Wow, wow, wow!!! The title really gives this a totally different perspective from the initial "looking up" view. I can really see the pool you are referring to. Excellent shot. - 10

Perspective is awesome! I love this! The symmetry is great!

if this was centered and tack focus 10, as is? 8, the idea is brilliant!!!

If the topic were architecture I'd give this a 9, easily. However, the topic's glass, so I have to mark it lower ... if the reflective bits were metal it wouldn't change the picture at all, really, so I'm leaving space at the top for entries that explore the topic more thoroughly. Striking, gorgeous image.

Wow - very creative. It really does almost feel like you're looking at a swimming pool. Beautiful. I bet it's marvelous in print. 9

WOW, great perspective! I couldn't figure out what I was looking at for a second! Good work.

Interesting angle - I like it. I'd prefer it if the window were central though.

REALLY like this shot!!! makes you think of a stadium and a pool, lol!! nice! 9/10

I really like how the perspective on this makes the ridges on the wall look like stairs leading up from a pool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2003 04:26:44 PM
This is excellent work. Took me a few seconds to realise this is looking straight up. Really clever photo, and a very well-chosen title.

Bright idea! Question of a tighter crop and skip the sky altogether - make the illusion perfect.

This angle makes my head swim.

Well titled photo! Has a Roman look to it. Nicely done!

Great title, good shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

cool shot! Just hangs in there on the theme..... I do really like it though... very strong symetry..... I like the lighting too.... I'm only giving it a 7 though because I don't think it's particularly strong on the theme.... Good Luck, Todd.

great perspective, light, concept, imagination 8

smart angle! I like this one, it DOES create an illusion of a pool at the bottom. I'm not sure if it was done on purpose, but the photo wasn't taken at exactly the middle of the glass "pool". Anyway, i like this one.
