I was hoping this would in. WELL DONE! Congratulations! I hope your degree is a high-demand too and you get a great job when you graduate -- if not -- try to make it as a self-employed photographer. I bet you'd do great :)

I was gonna say ... maybe you could get a job at a certain architectural firm demonstrating the use of a right-angle ... ;-)

The pattern of the shadows and the use of the opening to highlight the subject are particularly effective. Congratulations on the ribbon!

Thank you everyone for your comments and votes! My first third place! and techinically the best non-nude photo in this challenge. lol.

As for the construction, yes its an amazing structure that i have photographed before.

Great Shot.

That's some really neat construction. Looks kinda spiderman like.
Congratz on the yellow ribbon.

Cool tunnel. But as for a job for the college graduate, I note that this was taken in Phoenix. So, presumably he went to ASU. If that's the case, who would hire him? Go CATS! A-S-WHO? Bear Down Arizona! ;-) Nice shot, though.

Self portrait as well? Great architecture lighting and composition. Many congrats on your yellow!

At least he's got a cool looking place to hang out! :) Best of luck to him - and to you on this great image.

Brilliantly conceived and well executed.
12/27/2008 02:13:04 PM
very well thought out and shot. excellent b/w conversion, immense detail in the dark areas; well composed, though I had cropped off the dark area at bottom.
12/27/2008 11:07:06 AM
though this is a good idea, it is a little to washed out for me...and grainy
12/27/2008 03:06:48 AM
Nice shot, comp and conversion. Neat space and love the way it's lit. This would have worked in the shadows challenge, too.
12/24/2008 12:08:46 AM
Nice thought
12/23/2008 07:35:57 PM
Cool tunnel. At first glance I thought the person was representing an elf ('tis the season, after all), but then read the title. I like this as B/W, and the angles and shadows are very nice. The model's face seems just a tad too light but only a tiny bit. All in all, a very solid photo.

Very cool location & use of natural lighting!

Very interesting shapes and shadows. I think the tilt is too much though, and detracts from the power of the shot.

Great Shot, I hope you find that job.
12/22/2008 07:55:09 AM
great black and white.
12/22/2008 01:01:58 AM
I love the structure! If I lived wherever you are, I'd probably be shooting in that tunnel every day.

Normally I'm not a fan of a tilted composition, but this one works great. Well imagined, captured and presented!
