Very nice, Nikki. It's that little slim line moving off and away that's so compelling, with the strong columns framing it.

You draw us right down that narrow line, deep into the scene Nikki. Love the B&W and many strong elements of design with the lines, arched curves and roundness of the columns. Great eye.

Fantastic leading lines! Like the symmetry in the center of the image and the assymetry on the sides.

I could see cropping this to a vertical to concentrate the center of the photo.

Thanks for looking, Judges -- this is my first Judges Comment. Pretty cool :)
I actually have a vertical taken at the same time but I didn't think it had as much potential -- I'll have to go back and look at what I can do with it for another time.
Thanks to everyone else, too, for your congratulations. I spent a lot of time on this one and I'm delighted to have it recognized as a finalist.
