Taken last Summer in Syracuse, N.Y. It may seem tilted but I wanted it that way to keep the building in the background straight. Gotta love the challenges of barrell distortion.

Hopefully I wont get slammed for this one. I really dig the way it seems you're walking into it.

I’m having amnesia and deja vu at the same time - I think I’ve forgotten this before.

The barreling is there but not intrusive.The shadows of the windows on that walkway almost appear 3 dimensional with the shadowy effect.I think that this would work even better if you had some deeper shadows and lighter highlights.It`s a little too monotone to me and needs a little work. Just my take..

Fantastic shot. I don't think it needs work- I like it the way it is, but that's just my opinion. It's serene and desolate and all of the lines and shadows and tones are wonderful. Nicely done.

Do you see a little Asian child with a blank expression on his face sitting outside on a mechanical helicopter that shakes when you put quarters in it? No? Well, that's what you see at a toy store. And you must think you're in a toy store, because you're here shopping for an infant named Jeb."

A fantastic contest entry ... B & W is perfect. I agree the lined shadows do create a 3D effect & I like the textures too. Best of luck to you Jay.

Nice job, Jay. Everything in here is a straight line of one sort or another! Love the b/w.

Apologies for not commenting earlier, but I never put comments on fellow competitors images incase it sways others opinions. I liked the image and the starkness of the lines, and the way it drew me in, as you said, but somehow the composition did not work for me. Even now I cannot put my finger on why this is, it just seems wrong. Sorry I can't be more helpful. It isn't the barrelling.

You are so good. I think your decisions were wise with this one. I'm glad I saw it! Makes for a very interesting DT.

It made my mind work...and the Goddess knows I need some heavy lifting there :)

Plus it's always nice to see Syracuse in its best light.

I'm loving the lines, the contrast, the b&w, textures, the whole creation is totally awesome. It would have been a real pleasure I imagine to come up with this. Nice work.Verena
