Comment left by: Olaf Greve (no e-mail specified) Lovely repetitive pattern. Nicely spotted!

Comment left by: Flemming Kristensen (no e-mail specified) A great idea, silhouetting silhouets against the sky. I would like to crop it a little bit closer to prevent buildings, trees and bridges from appearing along the edges. But that is always easier to see afterwards, isn't it.

Comment left by: JAS (no e-mail specified) Great shot! I agree with Flemming, the left buuilding is very distracting,yet is a pretty good POV of the subject. :)

Comment left by: The picture taker (no e-mail specified) I know cropping would have improved this, but for some reason I've never cropped my pictures. If I don't get it perfect in the viewfinder, I accept the results. I'm still getting accustomed to the E-500 and haven't gotten comfortable with it yet. Hopefully, my framing will improve.Thanks for the comments....

Comment left by: Jay Drew (no e-mail specified) I like how the riverboat in the front appears to be riding on the clouds. The building to the left is not that distracting to me.

Comment left by: Moose (olymoose@gmail.com) Another great one, the hits just keep on coming! Great subject nicely executed.

One thing does bug me, as it did others. I don't like the way the protruding bldg. on the left leans into the frame. 'twere mine, I'd use perspective correction to move it back to vertical. It then is far less obtrusive, both because it pushes into the frame less and because its obvious non-verticality doesn't clash with the strong line of lamp posts. It's not so much a matter of framing as of perspective correction.

Comment left by: Chris Barker (no e-mail specified) That works nicely.
