Very nice contrast and good choice of PP in B/W - works well. Love the angle...really adds to the drama.

I wish the person had been in focus instead of the street. I do like the b&w tho and the lines leading out of the frame.

Very nice! Almost reminds me of of the musical Singin in the rain. Hope this ribbons.

Good perspective, something new. A nice composition overall, good B&W choice. The reflections off the stones are a really nice touch. 10

i really like the point of view and the angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent shot. Very contrasty but I like it. Would love to see it larger though, I bet this one suffers when compressed for DPC.

Very dramatic lighting. I like the tilt of the camera here. Great image. 7

Interesting perspective and angle. It seems to be a tad OOF though - making it slightly less appealing. Still, good idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

interesting angle here, and i like the hight contrast. the image as a whole seems kinda out of focus to me (but just a veeeery little bit) tho.

Best shot in this challenge if I have any say. If I was a member, my vote would be 10!

Artistic but understandable; I like that in a photograph.

The bw gives it a certain mysterious mood, and the lone pedestrian gives the eye something simple to focus on. Great work.

Love the light on the slick cobblestone road, the B & W is a really nice choice...well done.

verry nice image I understand your ideea but I think it is tiled too much a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2005 06:11:34 AM
Photograph is brilliant ... title sucks a bit (it seems confusing and doesn't suit this gritty image). The composition is terrific; I think you've used the tilted horizon very cleverly to wring a highly dramatic effect out of the road kerbs. And the wet paving looks fabulous in contrast to the virtually silhouetted figure and his reflection/shadow. Very classy work. 9

I really like this one. The angle is really interesting and I love how the ground is shining from the rain.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Super image, but I am not sure about the upper curb being basically parallel to the top edge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2005 08:02:38 AM
I love the tone & compostiion. If anyone says they don't like the tilt, give me their address & I'll have them "taken care of". Great shot!

Love the angle and the urban feel. The reflection on the pavers is great. The shape of the umbrella is a perfect compliment to the rectangles of the pavement. Great silhouette.
