Great sillohette. Colors are beautiful. Dark in top right corner, but not a big problem since it's twilight.9

Very interesting architectural shot and good color, but I think the "branch" theme is a little weak

Doesn't look realistic to me, maybe thats what your going for ?
To me your subject should compliment your surreal color.
Follows topic well thought.

Great shot, well composed and excellent use of line. Suits the challenge well, and a novel approach. Seems slightly underexposed, but I'm guessing this was deliberate to try make the colours more vivid and enhance the impact of the silhouette.

I think I've seen this bridge before! :-) I really like the lines in the shot, but the sky's colors look fake and a tad grainy. The composition is great and I think this meets the challenge well, but the sky is a real distraction.

Would be a very nice shot. A little noisy, but still pretty good.

Great abstract. I imagine you left the tree tops in to help it all tie in with the theme of the challenge, but it might have been stronger without those.

A good photograph that is spoiled by the trees, Also, a bit of a squeeze to fit it into the challenge.

Damn I a sucker for beautiful architecture :) Is this you Michelle? I don't think I've ever seen the clouds like that in Redding. Great leading lines :) I would try using a CPL for this image to further boost the saturation and gradiation of the sky. 8
