Wow, I like it! A very nice silhouette, and I like the effects of the sun rays and color gradient. However, looking at the edges of the objects, perhaps the photo was sharpened more than necessary? (unless that was how the camera gave it, then I guess you're stuck)

this is so dramatic and elegant. i'm not sure it's the best for this particular challenge, but it's got such terrific impact that i scored quite high anyway.

This is a very interesting image. The cathedral and the cranes, and even fortuitously, a vapour trail. Excellent.

very interesting perspective.i like the rich gradient of the sky.
too bad you couldnt get a litte bit more detail on the building itself... :)

Great camera angle. Using the comtrail of the jet to emphisise the angularity of the cranes makes the contrast with the curves of Gaudi's masterwork sing. Good color saturation to hit a solid series of oranges and just a few hints of detail in the black solids. Great work. Tied with one other for first.

Always trying to finish Gaudys work, eh! 8

Nice silhouette. I'm thinking that I'd like to see maybe a tiny bit of detail in the structure though...

Did you use a really dark orange filter for this? Wow... one of my favorite shots in this challenge. Would really like to know how you did this :) Excellent composition. I just love the silhouettes.. Absolutely stunning shot! Well done! 10

This is the most amazing house in the world, and a stunnig photo of it. Great color but I would have taken five steps to the right to get rid of the distracting sun. .:9:.

This is a great angle. The sun can be a little unappealing, though.

Love it. Your composition just works for me, and the silhouettes are very powerful. Highly creative, one of my two highest scores inthe challenge. Well done. good luck!

How beautiful. Wow Barcelona...it's on my to see list. I like silhouettes and you got the colors just right. Good entry.

Great perspective. There's a lot happening here. Sky color separates a bit, though.

This is a beautiful sillhouette. The tension between the different lines holds the composition together really well. I particularly like the way the spires and the two outer cranes are visually shooting up and then off to the left, but the jet contrail and center crane help pull it back in.

Industrial sunset ......
03/24/2004 05:48:21 AM
Great shot! Nice old-meets-new, a great silhuette, and the sun peaking with it's flares looks nice. Gradient orange color over the sky is super. Maybe the jet-line doesn't do the image good, but it's not that distracting. Hope this one goes to the top 3.
