Hi Richard-

Straight out of Gotham! Nice! Again, difficult to critique higher scoring photos like this. Excellent perspective and clarity, and the grungy look is a nice touch.

I never knew they could look so forboding. Great job, Richard.

D'oh! If only you were 0.08 points higher, we could be messing with Judi's profile instead right now, LOL! Yes, I got punished too (see my profile, sobs) for being on your side. Lets try it again next time :p

As for the photo - I really like the dramatic sky. The exposure on the building is really nice, esp the part where part of it is darker and gradually brightens. Cool effect.

Feels like Gotham City... Can just picture Batman sitting on top looking down at all the evil...

He he he.

Well done on an awesome shot man!

I had hoped this would have been in the "top" five, or at least on the front page.....

I loved it, and gave you a "10".....

Domineering and overpowering with a delux angle to bring out its magic. Congratulations on your 11th place finish.

Clean lines and a convincing POV makes this image pop right off the page. The little shrub of leaves on the left bothers me a bit but the leading lines are stunning. The sky is processed really well without going overboard. Good luck.

This shot is pretty cool, love the angle it´s shot from and the gloominess and ominous feeling I get from this building. 8

this is a great idea ... i love all the lines in this photo. and the sky looks awesome. it's the contrast of the of the lines and the swirling clouds. also, i love the color scheme - it's almost mono-chronomatic. the photo is clear -- this shows perspective in so many ways. it's one of my favorites... good job.
