Would love some CC on this shot (composition, contrast,..). It was a wee bit dark inside, but I just loved the play of lines and shapes.

It is hard to look at, I think it's too busy, it has too many subjects I think.Maybe you should focus only on one subject, like the stairs, let it fill the frame.

Wow. Such a cool subject. It almost makes me nauseas (sp) to look at it. I wish you could bring out some of the detail in the shadows without further blowing out the windows... would be interesting to tone-map it and the convert it to B&W.

Regardless, pretty cool.

WOW, I feel like i am going to go crosseyed looking at it.

Very very cool, sometimes people get lost in how an image is supposed to look and forget what the shot itself represents. There is no other hobby in the world where you can freeze a moment in time instantly, to me the memory of the clock tower can not be represented unless you caught all the crazy stuff going on. I think focusing on one element would have taken away from what you saw. Awesome job.

Not only do I find the composition great but the exposure is beautiful too. Sorry manaheim, I don't want any more details that I don't think would add anything.

Composition = lines leading everywhere (including taking us in circles) creating the nausea feeling manaheim talks about but the main lines the eye notices are the ones taking us to the center... where, basically, there is nothing. What a beautiful definition of time.

Exposure = (that is kind of for manaheim) if there was more detail showing in the darker areas it would most probably take away from the overall feeling of this photo.

No, don't change a thing about this image.

Very nice shot. I love just about any that keeps my eye wandering around finding cool things in it.


P.S. I just wanted to join the fit-pitching.

Indeed. Brilliant image. I'm with cloudwalker: Don't change a thing. I get the same nauseous (there you go, manaheim ;) ), feeling looking at it. Cool!
