The Michelin Men       ©2010 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-G1       13th place, 37 points
1/4s, f22, ISO 100, 74mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Photoshop CS2
levels, shadows and highlights, unsharp mask
      Extra Info: Walking to work, I pass in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art and I am greeted by these 16ft high, enamel cast on aluminum, amorphous figures created by Thomas Schutte. These “Michelin Men”, always bring a smile to my face.

    It almost appears as though you combined two separate images here, the cool colored building on the left and the warm, bright, major attraction- nice work!
I wonder if you would notice if tomorrow morning the Michelin Men were sitting down...

    lovely picture and scuplture. you feel the picture could have bubbles with comments inside. a note forum users what would they say? the one on the left 'no no you lift the right hand like this. .......

    I really like the composition, geometric elements and framing, and the use of light and colour.

    And you smile while being in Chicago...

I googled it: "Three giant yellow-and-white statues guard the entrance to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) home to some of Chicago's most unique art. The cast aluminum sculptures by Thomas Schutte set the tone for the museum--different and unexpected."

I guess there are worse things to see every day! ;-) Make me smile, too.

    The golden tones of the main subject and surrounds versus the cool tones of the background at left does not quite work for me. I would be tempted to lose most of that blueish left background.
