I just can't resist! I've already won a ribbon with this museum and I just can take enough photos of it! This is a new perspective with a 90 degree rotation to make it look like slides. :-)

I adjusted curves for the sky separately. Some burning ans USM on the building then NI for the sky.

Voilą! Hope to make the top 10!! :-)

Great job! what else can I say?

The beauty of simplicity in a snapshot. I really like the use of shades too. It's the first pic I see on this site, nice welcome.
03/16/2004 09:54:21 AM
Hey Yanik--told ya! Marvelous work!
03/15/2004 09:38:41 PM
Congrats on a well deserved ribbon! I new this photo would place when I first saw it. It really is amazing how a simple rotation could totally change the perspective of an image. Well done.
03/15/2004 05:44:53 PM
At first glance i thought it was a sculpture! Really interesting angle. Excellent composition, lighting and focus! Well deserved ribbon! Congrats!
03/15/2004 11:40:27 AM
Congrats. And "slides", in deed, is what I thought it was when it first started to open on my screen.

Great toning, wonderful curves, good composition, very visually appealing. The textures are good too. Very neat shot!
03/14/2004 07:54:41 PM
This B&W is a real beauty and nicely done.
03/14/2004 06:58:47 AM
Well done.
03/14/2004 12:42:24 AM
Nice curves, well-composed image. Been there... amazing architecture. 10
03/13/2004 02:45:58 PM
Excellent work! I love the detail you've captured here. DOF is right on. I'll be curious to see the equipment used (lens, settings) and post processing. Good luck! 9
03/13/2004 12:01:19 PM
A wonderful black and white. I love this shot. It what I call a perfect shot. It all ballanced, the lighting, shadowing, frameing. Great job!
03/13/2004 06:42:38 AM
Very intriguing image, I would like to have seen a figure or some sort of recognisable feature in the picture somewhere to give me an idea of scale.
Good composition and lighting
03/12/2004 04:42:02 PM
Beautiful! The structure itself is enhanced so much by the quality of light and the cloud in the sky provides a perfect backdrop. You've chosen the time of day so well. Composition, sweeping down from the top left to the lower right corner, is very strong. This is wonderful.
03/11/2004 09:00:26 PM
Very nice shot...b/w is great shadows and contrasts are well done...a fantastic shot
03/11/2004 07:33:06 PM
I'm not sure what this is, but, I bet it's not slides. Great lighting and POV. Good luck with it, I'll bet you're in the top 10.
03/10/2004 04:09:43 PM
This is a very interesting slice of the building and the similarity to curly slides is good...good clarity and focus, interesting shadows and textures
03/10/2004 02:42:44 PM
Beautiful design. B&W works really well with it. 9
03/10/2004 12:47:21 PM
Excellent in all ways. Nice...
03/10/2004 12:55:38 AM
My Favorite for the challenge...probably for a few others the compositon is right on and the black and white brings it home. 10
03/10/2004 12:22:11 AM
The clarity and tones here are amazing! Super work. 10
03/09/2004 10:53:45 PM
Absolutely beautiful. I love the negative space in this. I love the tones. Perfect. I scored it very highly. Bravo!
03/09/2004 08:21:40 PM
nice lighting
03/09/2004 06:05:44 PM
Very crisp! I like the black and white.
03/09/2004 03:43:35 PM
This is superb! The black and white toning... A+, composition is perfect, and your use of leading lines is extraordinary. Most definately my favorite of the week :) 10

Awesome B&W treatment. Love the curves. By turning this image on its side you have created something very appealing and with the sky's darkening tone it's even better. The sahdows also add interest to the shot. By far one of my favourites for this challenge.

I love the lines in this photo, sums up both design & engineering - one of my favourites
03/08/2004 02:38:57 PM
Wonderful! I love the form and shadow and this looks great in b&w.
03/08/2004 12:54:14 PM

03/08/2004 12:43:54 PM
Very nice composition and flow. 8
03/08/2004 12:27:57 PM
great photograph. I gave this a 10 originally, but i decided that the indecisiveness on the title was annoying. = 7
03/08/2004 12:25:35 PM
Wow. This is truly wonderful. There is great interest, beautiful tonal ranges and the curves are stunning.
03/08/2004 12:21:12 PM
Hey, Yanik??? You got the museum turned sideways!!! Wonderful, I like it, great b/w also.
03/08/2004 12:21:02 PM
I'm very familiar with this buildling and I know the way it usually sits; however, I love teh way you shot it and layed it out for this challenge. Good luck! I hope you do well.
03/08/2004 11:38:39 AM
Beautiful building and nice perspective. I like your composition and choice of black and white. I expect this entry to score very well.
03/08/2004 11:11:01 AM
The undulations and curves are indeed lovely design features. Good seeing and really excellent photography. 9

03/08/2004 12:52:50 AM
Wait a Minute!!! This looks familiar! I have seen this before. I wonder if anyone else will notice. Very cool shot, the black and white wroks very well here! My highest rated shot with a 10, good job!!!
