My favorite of this challenge - nice to know it's pretty much "as is".

My favorite of the challenge. I like the emphasis on the "new" with a reflection of "old".

Had to look at this twice. I really like the mood it sets. The character in front of that incredible wall conrast and tie in with the orange sky very well. Top 3 for me. 10

Very good processing, well done.

Very futuristic look, and nice dynamic lines. The 'reflection' of the old building is a little out of keeping with the rest of the image.

Nicely structured scene - impressed with your combinations. Looks quite real.

Best of luck with your shot

Stunning. I want to hear the whole sad story of this man. Blade Runner meets The Graduate.

Posthumous Blue Ribbon for you. my only ribbon for this challenge.

great modern urban beauty! Back and bumping up to 7. What do you mean about the Dawn of Isolation? Do you mean this is how consciousness will be boosted? I think so.

Very interesting composition... the mix of lines works very well..

I like the composition of this photo and how the gold sky draws the eye, Great Job!

really fun idea, seems to work well, except for the wall. To me, it is just not enough to show what it is, or what you mean of it.

07/01/2007 08:45:25 AM
the colors and line are good here, They look like they are all walking to their doom

Great leading lines, lighting and composition, imo. Nice and different.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2007 08:21:47 AM
beautiful image. my only 10. composition is exquisite. and no, I don't usually use that word but it popped in my head and wouldn't leave. And it somehow fits. Anyway, everything in the image is working together amazingly well. there are no unnecessary parts of the image. color tones work extremely well. excellent job!

Nicely composed and well done on all levels.
Thank you!

10, this could well be a single shot but I can't recall the area well enough to know. In any case this feels like a photo and in a way captures sci-fi for me even though it is not full of andriods etc

wow, beautiful. very nicely done!

Looks like some album covers / posters that I have enjoyed. Not keen on the look of the sky, but I really like the image. Nice balance in the frame. Well done.

this is awesome. i love the composition, graphically great.

The reason this works for me is that it looks both real and fake at the same time.The reflection on the left building makes me think this is pretty much accurate as an advanced edit photograph. The overall message though is not isolation to me - I agree that we might be in the age of isolation for real but the windows all over the buildings make me think maybe people want to be together in some way - although I realize that technology sometimes keeps us away from being face-to-face (which I see occuring in the lonely character and the others walking away. I probably shouldn't obsess over the title and should move on to others- So my summary: A bit dark in spots but definitely emotive, beautiful and vexing. 7

My eyes are all over the place on this one trying to find out what to concentrate on. I like the contrast in colors, but other than that the photo really doesn't speak to me, especially consideering the challenge.

I just looked through the entire challenge, and yours is the first I'm voting on. Wow. Awesome use of angles, lighting, and characters to create a fantastic composition. This goes to show - the use of all tools available in "Expert Editing" are not required to come up with an "Expert" image. Yours easily portrays what IMO is the most SciFi emotion in the entire lot. Well done. Rare that I give out a 10. 10, and a fav.
