saw this one on another site -- liked it there and liked it here -- your dramatic style and interpretation of subjects is always interesting and compelling.

Karen, what an IMPRESSIVE composition! That "Time" reaches literally to the Heavens! Congratulations on another front page finish!

two excellent scores in a row ... you must be beaming ear to ear .. well i would be .... congratulations karen on another excellent image and an awesome score .... this is really the most amazing image .. that building looks just about superimposed onto that sky ... that sky is incredible .. surely you've done a bit of a dodge and burn or similar to create the sort of glow around the building ..?? .. whether its out'v camera, or you've helped it along a bit, is neither here nor there to me, (as you'd know!), i absolutely love this image ..

Wow! Top 10 (8th to be exact!) :D Congrats!

Seems that many commented on the 'haloing', myself included, but it certainly didn't hurt your score very much. Being a PSP user also, I have a better idea of how you obtained the end result.

Well done!

Great perspective. The tonemapping might be a little heavy with the glow around the building but the colors ar every nice. 7

Lots of halos - is this from too much sharpen?

the time rules and dominates the world, but that clock will die as well. interesting things I start thinking about when I look at this photo. AND the sky is not eternal either. what is eternal on this image?

The angle you shot this from really makes this photo interesting. Good Job!

Hmm...the halo effect along the edges of the tower really take away from an otherwise great photo. I'm thinking a polarizing filter could have been used to minimize the over post-processing of the sky.

I Like the suggestion thet the clouds are moving around the tower.

Wow, that makes you look up! Cool!

Looks like shadow/highlight and/or some type of HDR treatment was given this image resulting in an unnatural haloing around the building. Or. perhaps. this was added "manually". Generally speaking, haloing artifacts add little to photographic images. Image is otherwise nice and perspective good.

Very impressive image. I like the coloring of the blue sky and the gray tower.

I really like the perspective used here in capturing this image. Very good detail and DOF for the distance covered. One thing slightly distracting, and I don't know if it was intentional during post-processing, but the whole tower seems to have a diffused halo around all of the edges. It is a very cool shot and overall a job well done. Good luck in the challenge.

Very cool clock tower but I have to say I don't like the halo effect around it.
