Sweet POV. I likethe contrasting tones.

Unusual and striking composition. Very nicely executed. 7

Some posterization going on here that detracts from this in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:01:30 PM
Nicely done, very well captured. I like the centered composition because of the symmetry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice framing by the background building. Nice coloring throughout, with the exception of the green in the statue / mount.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:04:35 PM
interesting entry not too keen on the background color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:31:10 PM
i like how the color of the statue stand out against the background
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 10:04:40 PM
It's a simple idea, but one that would escape the notice of many. Would make a great book cover shot for a reprint edition of The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. 7.

Great lines.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:26:22 PM
I like it. I like that the buildings are a bit faded out by fog(?) and I like the light on the statue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:30:40 AM
the focus seems just a bit soft on the statue, great idea though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:46:47 PM
Fascinating photo. I like the pastel colours, and the symmetry of this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 05:44:37 PM
Back to comment: The exposure is spot on and the post processing is good. However, having the statue centered really makes the composition look static.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:44:06 PM
I don't care for the color of the background... kind of nauseating.. the green statue and the composition nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:47:42 PM
I like this composition a lot, but I can't help but feel the shot is leaning a little to the right.. Just isn't quite right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:18:59 AM

Very difficult to make interesting images out of monuments, but this is really an outstanding composition!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:06:02 PM
I see a good deal of banding in the glow of the tower.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 08:14:04 PM
Very pretty and nice perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 04:27:26 PM
Very nice. I would like to see the monument a little more defined.

Nice pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:12:37 AM
Quite "masculine" if you know what I mean. The haze certainly helps highlight the greens.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:57:50 AM
Striking shot with great color. Nice angle and background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice balanced composition. I like how the statue is framed withing the building.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 07:06:11 PM
I like the balance and symetry. Looks like an art deco card or poster.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:46:09 PM
Seemed liked a very hazy day when this was shot?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:38:55 PM
