Dennis Gay September 29, 2008

G'day Daniella,

What a great photograph to be awarded an EP ad what an eye catching scene you have photographed.

The perspective distortion adds to the towering buildings' domination of the scene.
The shot is very well composed and the B&W works so well here and helps make "Phantom" banner stand out so well.
A chainsaw would have been handy to get rid of that palm tree. 8-)
Very nice contrast and a good tonal range round off a very impressive image.
