Superb parallel (and parallels)! Some seem to associate the two, I think they are cleverly brought together by you, the photographer. Beautiful work!
Andrea Aschedamini29-Oct-2006 09:06
love those differences...
Ana Carloto O'Shea26-Oct-2006 14:17
Well seen!! I mean, it's easy to say that, now that I'm sitting here looking at your photo in my screen, but the truth is that I think that if I was there, looking at the same things I would never have thought that they would work in a photo..

There has already been said everything about this excellent image in previous comments. I just like it! GMV

I have recently uploaded a shot to my galleries, which is different, but similar in the fact that it is a combination of a modern telecommunication tower and a couple of old cathedral towers - I call it 'Tele-communications Towers', as I feel the spires of the church also in a way symbolize 'tele-communications'. Much the same as here...

Maybe it says that technology and modern times "out do (as lawrence said)" the old and beautiful?
Adrian Reilly25-Oct-2006 12:31
Wonderful Juxtaposition Craig
Sue Robertson25-Oct-2006 12:22
Love the crop and the simple comp.

You are a genius Craig! Perfect metaphore!
TimA25-Oct-2006 06:32
This takes the concept from last time a little further. I agree with JD's comment that this is the European model - but maybe the church in a US equivalent would also be a mast in disguise. Controversial! v.

Love this. Reminds me of the preoccupation of some countries / cities to "out do" each other and build taller and taller buildings. So many interesting debates to have about this... My thoughts paralleled JD's. The thing I also like is how the tower on the right looks over stretched... maybe one ambition too far...

Very well seen again. V
Greg Harp25-Oct-2006 04:11
Terrific work. GMV
JD25-Oct-2006 03:58
An excellent metaphore. Which of them has more power? In North America, the struggle would be tough, but the louder voice would come from the left. In Europe, I would bet on the right.

Elegant comparison!!

Ah, the Word these days is mobile/cell based. Great juxtaposition.

Lol l'antenne envoie la sainte voie à l'église ?
Ed Goodnight24-Oct-2006 23:40

I agree with Bill and Lester
Lester Weiss24-Oct-2006 23:22
a nice compositional play with verticality
Steve H24-Oct-2006 23:09
Oh yes! Very cleverly seen and cropped
