Thanks for all the great comments!

Dale, whom I met via our DPL2 team, met me at the Disney Concert Hall. If I had planned better Deb would have joined us and maybe a 4th Gehry image would have placed well!

I truly enjoy photographing this building.

From my last visit to DCH:

Congratulation on the honorable mention. I love the highlight and shadow in this image. Very well done.

I had this pegged for Top10 possibly Top3...
It is clinically excellent (title vs B&W processing) and very appealing. 10

Gorgeous tones. Yes, you do show how dynamic grays can be. part of that is done through a very exciting composition.

This photo has been installed in my Galerie Nulle Part

Your title is spot on. I love the geometry in this shot... compels the viewer to study it at length.

Works great for the challenge, and I like the way you toned it

I'll give you creative license with the title, as the two concepts are at odds. The image itself is amazing. Love it. 10
