Red means stop       ©2012 Mepo
Panasonic DMC-FZ30       11th place, 71 points
1/59s, f5, ISO 200, ?, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Edited some distractions, cropped.       Extra Info: Weird light following hurricane Sandy - it was like a partial solar eclipse all day. No major injuries but both cars looked like they were write -offs. I guess one guy was in a hurry.

My favourite bumper sticker reads "I hope you get there before I do".

    Actually if you photoshopped earth flying and trees limbs blowing out from the base of the tower, maybe added Godzilla's foot just entering the top of the frame stepping on the tower, I'd have felt a lot better about the whole image. ;-)

    It is often that someone is in a hurry when an accident happens. :-( And isn't it that we just think we are in a hurry when we drive less carefully? Often it's just a couple of minutes we would arrive later when we would drive more considerate. In my TT for fitting the theme and capturing the moment quite nicely, especially the light.

    Appreciate the comments and the humour. I already cropped the top but should have brought it down further. Jade - I am having the building demolished as we speak!

    I'm so unsure about the tower slamming into the middle of the frame that I almost feel it needs to be right there. That aside, I find this is a nice composition with interesting lighting and other elements and very documentary in style but not quite yet pulitzer original.

    Well, I hope a lesson was learned here!

You should have used your Partial Solar Eclipse white balance setting. I think making this a 16x9 format would have made a better presentation by showing less sky.
