Nice, definitately one of my favorites so far. Can't think of anything you could have done differently to improve. Great composition and angle, contrast and sharpness are right on. Hope you get a ribbon for this one.

Very interresting picture for this topic. I would prefer to see their faces but anyway it's one of the best picture in this challenge. -9

Very nice dual-tone. Did they win?

Classic work. Has an old feel to it that itself stands the test of time. Nice tone. I wish I could see their faces, though, for the strength category.

wonderful -- such a strong group (and photo as well) I like the b&w. You've capture one dimension of strenght very well - one of my top picks this challenge

This is a good-natured use of strength, I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 02:24:39 PM
Nice sepia....this photo looks like it was taken many many years earlier. Definately portrays strength and power. Good job.

3rd place, excellent contrast, you can feel the pull.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 12:31:11 PM
Even though all the subjects have their backs to camera this shot conveys strength the black and white with tone gives it a journalistic quaility.
Very well done 10

04/16/2004 07:12:58 AM
Wonderfull picture! Have you considered taking the pic showing the faces of the subjects? That could have been an adition to the picture, giving it even more strength. Nevertheless its wonderfull and has great dynamics.

Excellent depiction of the challenge! Toning = WOW! (10)

Really captures the physics of the moment and power of the subjects as they pull on the rope. The sepia also helps to lend a timeless quality to the struggle

Great photo. By far my favorite so far. I think the striped shirts really make this picture great.

04/14/2004 05:20:00 PM
So far my only 10. I love the focus, tones and the perspective view of them all lined up............oh and the power of these hunky guys is mildly of interest! lol Great job. Ribbon winner for me!! Good luck.

Absolutely great. Brightness and contrast are dead. You've kept detail in almost all of your blacks, as well as in almost all of your whites. 9, and I am cheering for a ribbon for you!
