Fascinating work - your choice for processing took an already extraordinary shot to a whole other level. Good work, and congratulations on your blue, very well deserved.

... and I just looked at your original which in itself would have made a magnificent entry.

I wish I had known that this was a shot of a real building, I honestly thought you had taken a picture of some 3D graphics image on a computer screen.

Wow what a picture, it really highlights to me that photography can be 100% bona fida art.

That is an insanely impressive shot.

Proof positive that there are no limits to what can be accomplished by a skilled photographer.

*blown away*.

I thought there was a pad of paper involved here.

I for one am glad to see something totally different take the blue. It's a nice change of scenery. Oh, and that Soligor is pretty sharp. Not bad for an old M42 screw mount.


I absolutely agree pure genius. Congrats on the blue & into my favs

Congrats on the blue! FYI, I almost never like negative images, but you've shown it can be done effectively. Nice.

This is fantastic!
Usually I'm not really into architecture, but this photo gives a whole new perspective! Almost like a blue-print.

Congrats :D

Very good entry. This makes me think of an engineering or science magazine. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I like it very much. This has qualities that make it look less like a photo and more like something that was rendered. Interesting to look at, and I really enjoy the contrast between the organic black membrane (reminiscent of a bat's wing perhaps) and the various gridlines. Well done.

Outstanding job. Extremely inventive work with a wonderful vision to see the possibilities.

This is absolutely terrific, excellent idea to convert to a negative. Added to my all-time favorites.

I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lutchenko this is very different from the standard DPC. Incredible, instant fave.

Wow! This is great! I love it! Congrats on the ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/17/2009 04:44:44 AM
This is one of the best images I have ever seen here and whilst the blue is very well deserved indeed I think this should have done better from the vote standpoint.
All of my 1s were scrubbed so it's a mystery as to why you end up with four 1s.
Fantastic work Gabriel, can't wait to see the next one

A ten from me. This is very interesting. I'm not sure what I'm looking at... most likely not actual archtecture, but it seems to fit the challenge perfectly, regardless. Good job. (voted earlier, now back to comment)

06/13/2009 08:55:32 PM
Looks like a front pager. I'll be curious to know what this is how and you did it in Basic Editing.
