Ohmygoodness. What an amazing photo. I LOVE urban photos, and this one is so striking with how bright and vibrant your subject is. It so creative in how it looks almost selectively desaturated -- but there's still some color. Congratulations on a MOST deserving red ribbon!

Congrats :)

Djöfull að það skyldi ekki hafa verið íslendingur í fyrsta sæti líka, hefði verið frekar töff að ná íslenskri þrennu :)

Nice shot great composition! the background is overprocessed though I think, preserving some of the detail would have made it a bit more natural , this owuld make a really cool poster though

Weeeee - what fun. Lovely example and great capture. One of my favourites. Love the bright colour against the bland background of cityscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2007 02:05:01 PM
Excellent! Perfect for the challenge and I like the choice of location. Very enjoyable!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2007 01:11:06 PM
love your background, just shows enough details but is blurred enough to not distract from the person. nice work in having him stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2007 12:04:31 AM
nice shot with a very cool background...especially like the guy standing against the fence. only complaint is that i would have liked to see things a split second later with him leveled off directly above the dude i so like standing in the background ;) the ring seems so out of place...i do understand why you left it in.
