This picture I took while travelling in New York City and visiting the "Ground Zero" site. I think its interesting how humans have faith after something like that.

Great message, not the best pic but will still give you an 8 for the idea alone.

i like the tones on the sky, but not the tones on the buildings and the cross. 7

Seems totally appropriate to me to have religion at "Ground Zero", what better place?

I tihnk it's very hard to use the negative/inverted image to often come out better than the original. However, I think you made a good choice here by using it. The inverted sky REALLY brings out the foreground. Nice job.

Is ironic, why?

interesting subject, makes you think, I like your reverse effect - perhaps we are supposed to look at the image from different perspectives? It all comes togetehr nicely.

Good composition.

Good take on irony I feel. The negative look is different and I personally like it.

I don't think using a negative of your image adds anything to the idea you are trying to present

I get the irony but I don't like the inverted colors, the shot itself is very good but not the coloring.
