I think the tables should stay - they are mostly circular, after all. This is currently my favourite shot on the site.

I agree that removing the tables most likely would make this photo better but it's still very good. "I like it a lot..."

What are all the tables leading up to the person? I think it would be kind of cool to see it plain without all of them but I love this picture, what a great location

This is really beautiful. One of the few ribbon winners that would have gotten a high vote from me (I didn't vote this challenge).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Normally I'm not a fan of shots where the photographer has applied a duotone/grayscale etc. to all of a photo except one area (they remind me of those cheesy black and white posters of the little kids holding hands with just a rose coloured), but the subtlety of this is really working for you - it's a great shot, and your post-processing has really added to it. The one drawback of this photo is that it's tilted counter-clockwise slightly. Picky, I know, but as a graphic designer it bothers me. It's the difference between a great phot and a really great photo.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2007 12:37:17 AM
Wow! So easy on the eye! Nice one.
I've been watching your progress for some time now and your skills, imagery, use of shadows light and colour are well-deserving of this ribbon. Congratulations Shalrath! PS the figure placed between the two trees and the green finish in this works brilliantly (I think!)

strong central composition - great use of a few tones to set the rainy-day feel - one of my ribbon picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2007 09:23:10 PM
Love the tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2007 02:31:10 PM
Excellent photo. I like the color tone. I also like the square crop. Hmmm... interesting subject placement, SLIGHTLY off-centered... Yep, very good. Very curious as to what the location is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2007 09:15:57 AM
Excellent. Love the colors. 10

03/18/2007 04:58:36 AM

Very beautiful!

Nice job keeping the umbrella silver while everything else is tinted green.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2007 09:41:52 PM
Very nice. Love the umbrella. I like that it's not in the duotone like the rest of the shot. Well done. The symmetry works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2007 06:11:23 PM
although the whole thing seems to be tilted to the left a bit, i think this is a winner with its tones and moodiness... 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2007 01:03:04 AM
Love the color, the composition, very nice!! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 06:22:24 AM
This will certainly be a ribbon...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2007 01:19:18 PM
beautiful - i love the rain, the shapes, and the tunnel. where was this taken?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2007 02:27:29 PM
I'm trying to figure out what this person is standing in and I don't know. it's a cool photo, somewhat surreal, and I like the green tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2007 03:21:54 AM
I prefer this without the person.....
