Comment left by: Olaf Greve (no e-mail specified) This looks like a cover shot for an architecture book. Nice angle for this shot, and lovely colours.

Comment left by: benson (benson@gsb-haifa.ac.il) Looks like Star Trek all the way! Great angle. What time was this shot? Either I have a neighbor, or there are Judean hills in other places....!

My favorite shot of the bunch so far - Great colors, great abstract shapes and patterns, great use of perspective, and the shutters and clothes serve to add interest.

Comment left by: Andreas Grunwald (no e-mail specified) great perspective and great idea! very well done!

Comment left by: Chuck Norcutt (chucknorcutt@attbi.com) Best of the bunch as art. I do want to know about the white spot in the field of blue. The moon? A bird flitting by?

Comment left by: siddiq (no e-mail specified) another fav from this bunch: the balconys, the line of windows, the sharp shadow right of the windows, the shutters, all lines to the blue vanishing point right below what looks like a moon almost (wrong time/location for a thin crescent?). I see it's only 591 pixels wide, definitely a larger (640) would make it easier to appreciate, along with less aggressive JPG compression given the large areas of smooth tones. as Olaf said, looke like a cover shot!

Comment left by: Doro (no e-mail specified) Great picture. I agree absolutely with the idea of a cover shot. Very original, very becoming colours. And the shadow nicely lined up next to the windows :)

Comment left by: Alasdair Mackintosh (Alasdair.Mackintosh@ntlworld.com) Excellent shapes, colours and textures. I also like the way that the shadow neatly lines up with the right hand edges of the windows.

Comment left by: Chris Barker (no e-mail specified) Nice curves, straight lines and balance of colours, and composition of course. I can't make out what the white flash in the sky might be (wrong shape for moon surel?). I am sorry to hear of your loss of view... loss of land is not the only issue then ...
