I didn\'t know about this challenge until after I shot this in DC. Playing around with it in post-editing, I was struck by the negative image that was formed and decided to submit it. If I could change two things, it would be for the statue on the top to be darker as the details are not very clear, and to remeove the tree branches on the left side. Post-editing consisted of straightening, cropping, and converting to the negative. Hopefully, it will be well received.

Cool, this somehow just works for me, perfect example of a good use of "invert". 8 from me.

Now this is something special as a negative image. I love the low-down blues which almost look like they are glowing. Good luck and I hope you score well with this. A 10 from me.

the branches on the left are distracting to me, but good work-7, would've given higher but for the branches.

It seems like a computer generated graphic. Nice!

I don't know but for some reason it seem to tilt on the left side and sometime on the right side.... Optical illusion ?

It's a nice picture... I love it...

The unlit piece at the bottom looks out of place. Otherwise it seems to work.
