I was driving and saw them. The one on the right of the photo reminded me of a politician attempting to convince others of his greatness.
2 minutes after posting...
I just realized it's a bit over sharpened.

I like the subject very much – they look like metallic dinosaurs. Very interesting shapes and colors.
Yes, it´s a bit oversharpened – and it also needs some adjustments in PS, I think.
Still very well seen and well captured.

Interesting shot, its not often you see so many together, of such different colours. I like their positions in the sky. I tried a WS to improve the colours.. Good shot.

Have you seen my cranes ?.
Could be more sharp, but still a very nice one.

That's what parliamant will look like when robots will be leading the country. Might not be a bad idea. Fun shot, unusual, a lot of colors, its fills the image nicely. Yes I would sharpen a little but first I would run the pic under Neatimte to remove the noise in the sky.

Great composition !
I like the confusion of the machines... Very good !
Liora (1857) 2004-03-01 11:23
Nice! I especially like your interpretation here... I would have used fill-flash in order to revive the colors a bit, but it's also good as is.

The subject matter really matches the title. They do all look like they are listening to a political speaker. But not only does it look like they are listening there is a lot of action here and it looks like they are yelling, some for and some against the speaker. Although I'm looking at the one on the left as the speaker. Perhaps that's the same one. My left, the photo's right. The blue one in the distance facing the opposite direction. And the two short redish ones below it are like its bodyguards ready to calm the dissenting cranes. I can really let my imagination go here and come up with a story. It could use less sharpening and more saturation perhaps, but still it's very well composed and conveys a lot of energy.

What a mess! Very nice shot :)

Very well spotted and captured Chistina.
A funny photo too - I seams to be a pack of metal monsters looking for something to eat ;-) Good work indeed.

Fun stuff, Cristina. This is a clever idea--both the shot and the title. The point of view is very effective, and I really enjoy the random nature of their "postures" against the sky.

Your politicians are made in metal, more resistant than mine... LOL
It is bizarre, we had the same idea! I find your image consisted well with a good contrast and colours which go out well IMHO. A suggestion: maybe removed the useless electric cords.
Vos politiciens sont fait en métal, plus résistants que le mien... LOL
C'est bizarre, nous avons eu la même idée! Je trouve votre image bien composée avec un bon contraste et des couleurs qui sortent bien iMHO. Une suggestion : peut-être enlevé les fils électriques inutiles.

A mistura de cores e ideia de grandiosidade que esta imagem nos fornece, concretiza uma boa foto. bom trabalho!

Hahahahahaha! This is very amusing. Robots gone awry. The seeming randomness of the placements of the machines makes the composition very attractive.

A great capture, Cristina. The colours and shapes are excellent. Very well seen. Your title is great too.
mcreider (673) 2004-03-06 9:04
Hilarious, if I spell it correctly. If not - let it be just hysterically funny.
robiuk (10807) 2004-08-19 13:51
Your photos are very emotional, Cristina. Not necessarily this one but I had to say that after seeing your entire gallery.
This one holds a strong composition and its title was chosen very well. I'm glad you spotted this 'construction' of cranes (or whatever its names) with basic colours and it doesn't matter to me that the photo is a bit of a low quality (pixel-wise).
RegisMinot (1543) 2005-02-21 4:54
A very original capture. I see there a coloured version of the army of robots in "star wars". They look quite threatening !
jrzufferey (7305) 2005-05-10 14:42
Bonsoir cristina,j'aime bien ton image illustrée par ces mécaniques tentaculaires tel des arthropodes affamés. L'image manque un peu de précision et de contraste mais le thème est fantastique, merci de nous la partager. Amicalement/jr
PS je me suis permis un petit WS Amicalement/jr
jafadabret (56501) 2005-05-27 10:43
Ces monstres sont à la fois menaçants et gracieux un peu comme des joueurs de basket. Je les ai ajoutés au thème "Monsters".
dmitriy55 (275) 2005-07-14 23:31
Great composition and POV!
ndb1958 (9289) 2005-07-15 17:23
Wow. great and interesting shot. Nino

Faz lembrar um mundo em que as máquinas tal como "nós" também discutimos.
O fundo é difícil de controlar... Parece-me óptima.
