Absolutely gorgous, perfect lighting, composition, black and white is stunning. Nice work, hope to see this one at the top. I give it a 10.

Something about the lighting andsharpness make it look almost like an architectural model than a real building.

starkingly attractive photo. Looks great in black and white. My favorite of the challenge.

I like this shot a lot. Wonderful use of symmetric composition to emphasize the static architecture of the building. The B&W is well done too, removing the color further enhances the arching form of the building and the dramatic lighting without the distraction of color.

What a terrific shot! It makes the most of the unusual architecture with a minimum of detail. The lignting for this was just perfect - the negative space aspect of the shot works well to accentuate the subject. The choice of black and white was perfect for this.

I really don't have any criticism - this photo is excellent! I see a 10.

Good lighting. Everything that needs to be seen is visible without any disturbing elements peeking through. The steps in front of the church are only slightly visible but in my opinion only adds to the quality.

NIce title for this image! I love the utter blackness surrounding the church and the church lights are very emotive themselves. Well seen!

Good exposure -- the lights are blown out, but you can still see much of the building. Good choice for black and white, I think.

I really like this. I think placing it in the center of the shadows/darkness works for this image. Black and white also compliments it well and emphasizes the simplicity of it. A nice clean, sharp image with a good matching border.

Alveg hreint út sagt glæsileg mynd enda Kópavogskirkja skemmtilegt myndefni

Haven't I seen this church before? From a different angle? Will have to check back after the challenge to see if it's the one I think. I like the angle of the shot and the curves of the roof. The lighting is just about perfect but the white border line is distracting to me. If the crop was on that line the shot would be close to perfect in that aspect. My gut instinct vote on this was a 4, it looked fuzzy and a bit dark at first but upon closer inspection I know now it was my glasses! EEK! :) Raising your score to an 8

You captured this in a very pleasing way. I like it a lot. Good composition.

Nice image. I'd like to have seen it colored, but like it still.
11/10/2003 10:22:54 PM
well done. The cross really contrasts with the round angles. 9

The bulding almost looks like it is on stage, ready for it monologue. Nice staging. It is glowing, simple, lovely. 8
