Very impressive graphic quality to this with a wonderful combination of the curve with all of the straight lines and squares. I love the color pallet too. Excellent! #1269302

Nikki McDonald level-classic May 16, 2010

Linda said it very well -- and it's so straight! Wonderfully seen, captured and presented, Chris. #8615282

Kara L. Hendricks May 16, 2010

Wow... How oh how am I going to pick a fav. from you this month??

Did I say WOW??? #8615407

Joy Rector May 16, 2010

gorgeous, well done #8615441

Karen E. Baumann May 16, 2010

Love it! I like what Linda said... I really like that my eye kept going around and around back forth between the warm rich golden color and the graphic lines of square boxes. Very nice EOD! #8616401

Chris Budny level-deluxe May 17, 2010

Thank you all very much... Someday I'll have to go back, out of curiousity, and see what's inside---there are very few actual windows on this building. #8616726

Nikki McDonald level-classic July 06, 2010

My favorite of your June entries, Chris -- I just love the curve with the squares and the unusual pattern of the windows. Title's good, too. Of course I considered several others before settling on this: 'Bridge Seam" which I do think has an intriguing pattern and for which black and white is perfect; 'Geared for Time' which is so clear and crisp and nicely detailed; 'Curves' for its beautiful lines, tones, and sparkle; and 'Love Detail' because it is wonderfully bold and simple. There are others, too, but this will do for now :) Good luck. #8739117

Chris Budny level-deluxe July 07, 2010

Mitch Spence level-classic July 11, 2010

You bet--that's just super design, Chris. The arc opposed to the squares and the lines in the windows repeating the lines of the arc, and of course your great comp here--all works flawlessly together to create great interest. Congratulations on the 101 POTD. #8747958

Chris Budny level-deluxe July 11, 2010
