This is the origional. The edited version is on a friend's computer which I will get and post later! Oh, and yes. The image is flipped. I thought it looked cooler that way and would keep people looking at it for a few moments longer.

Sorry, I just don't think it's a strong image to begin with, and flipping it around isn't doing it any favors.

I like the image, of course it would be more interesting if u were in a city with gigantic skyscrapers, but you can only do with what you have. Good shot and keep shooting!

Not my cuppa, the pole cuts the photo in half...the crop feels odd.and flipping just makes it look OOF really.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

The edited version looks a lot better in my opinion. I printed an 18x11 of it on luster and it looks great. But I can see how you think the pole might cut the photo in half although it has not been cropped. I'm a little obsessed with symmetry which is why I think I like reflections :)

Again, will post the edited version as soon as I get it. I will also flip it the correct way.

I like this. The division in the middle works for the composition me thinks; looks like a diptych.

I took a design class, and we learned about how one of the most important responsibilities of an artist--both for himself and for others--is to keep the audience engaged for as long as possible without over-complicating the message. Bravo to this:

I am Henry. NOT Hank. And certainly not a length of rope tied in a knot. ;)
My family calls me Hen, but you can call me Chicken. See you out there!

Thank you, my friend. I really appreciate that, that was exactly what I was going for. :D
