Comment left by: Flemming Kristensen (no e-mail specified) Great pic! Perfectly exposed (in the computer, but nonetheless). Good diagonal composition, placing the brighter parts to the lower right, and a very dark half of the image to the upper left. Impressive. Must go to Iowa someday to get some shots of those covered bridges they have there :-)

Comment left by: Fernando (no e-mail specified) I particularly like the use of the diagonal in this photograph. Rarely do I find subjects to which this makes a really good composition, and most often those are man-made.

Comment left by: NoŽl Polis (no e-mail specified) Very very good job, making the pict and working on it with the computer ! The different whites are amazing, and the contrast is really impressive. A great picture.

Comment left by: Andrew Wendelborn (no e-mail specified) Very effective. Nice composition of shapes.
