Thanks for the comments and votes! As many of you guessed, the sideways rotation of this shot was intentional, since a traditional portrait view of this lacks the impact that this sideways version does. Glad you all liked it, might persuade me to enter more often! :o)

Very well done!

Great perspective, wonderful toning, the streetlight breaks up the pattern and adds interest. Nicely shot.

I love the unusual nature of this photo - definately one of my favourites

IMHO this shot is a little confusing to me at first viewing. First thing I thought was why isn't the buliding coming up from the bottom of the frame. Second thought was what am I supposed to be looking at. The lines of the building lead my eye through the shot into the sky, but there is a light right in the middle of the shot that interupts the flow...

Very Nice pic..... well done

Neat shot. Love the perspective view here and the tones are also good.

This is a good picture with lines the main subject of the shot. However, I think it would have been more effective if it had been left vertical instead of tipped on the side so it looks horizontal. One would get much more of that feeling of extreme height if it was vertical.

Great shot. - 8

You might remember me screaming about the birds but I remember you peering up at the lamp posts!
I dolike this, I like that you've turned it on it's side and I like the composition. Black and white works well to emphasise the geometric shapes.
I like the round reflections or lights or whatever they are we can see in the windows - I never noticed those on the day.
And I do like the fact that the sky has that cloud texture in it. Adds interest.
Makes me feel cold just looking at it but only because I remember how bleeding windy it was!
Good luck!
Now give me a comment please!

If you don't win a ribbon on this one I'll be surprised.
03/17/2004 02:06:33 PM
Really cool
03/17/2004 02:00:10 PM
WOW! Very original and compelling image. I just LOVE it. I'm giving it a 10. Good luck!
03/17/2004 12:27:35 PM
You just know a winner when you see one. Great picture, great angle, and use of b&w.
03/17/2004 08:38:25 AM
I would have liked to have seen this rotated to the right 90 degrees. I am sure that is how you shot it, looking up. That would have made it true to your title.
03/17/2004 07:36:43 AM
When turned 90 degrees CW, this would have been very good. Now it makes me dizzy.
03/17/2004 04:45:04 AM
ooo very nice. Unusual to see it on its side, I like it!
03/17/2004 01:37:56 AM
great shot, an intersting perspective.
03/17/2004 01:05:42 AM
This would have looked better in portrait instead of landscape. But great point of view and beautiful tone. 8

Good luck...

Beautiful. Nice conditions in the sky for this one.
