Just tried to get a few of the common elements of the Matrix movies into my shot. The shades - the cell phones - the green light - the reflections. Nothing fancy.

The best of the shades/ sunglasses combo this week! Great composition, nice use of border.

Great detail and colour on this, and I don't usually comment on frames but damn that one works well!
The overall composition lets this down for me - the arrangement is a bit too much like a face.

Excellent focus and very clear smooth colors. Perfect shade of green, not overdone like most pictures. The composition is excellent. One of the better shots of the challenge.

The reflections turned out well. The sepia effect in green is very good - 9.

Good photo and i really think the border works well. Looks like a widescreen film on my square tv. 9

The border works well. One of the best phone/sunglasses shots.

Cool idea for the border. For this shot I LIKE IT a lot, and it really fits. Maybe make the black border a little thinner.

Topical, graphic, well rendered and likely 'intentional clichee'. The wide screen effect with the white hairline separation is especially apt. A bit too 'slick' and vacuous, perhaps, for the artistically discriminate.

there have been lots of these cell phone/sunglass combos, but yours is the best one so far. nice job - crisp picture, good hue shift, controlled shadows and reflections. I like it. even the border...despite my general dislike for borders :)

Well-taken shot - you've done well to get the image of the phone reflected on the shades. The focus is excellent too.

Not sure about the layout of the shot with the black borders - I guess it's very 'widescreen' :) and ties in with the film, but I'm not so keen - I feel it's a little unbalanced.

Nice work nonetheless - I expect this will do well.

Why the huge borders?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like this border - really helps the aspect ratio of the shot. The image is OK - good technical shot of two significant elements from the film. Doesn't have anything outstanding for me though.

This photo looks very crisp -- I like the colors and the imagery. Nice cropping, as well!
