  • The sentence is not complete. This is a subordinate clause. Subordinate clauses cannot stand as a complete sentence.
  • That is not a sentence.
  • It is an incomplete sentence.
  • uh, try writing a sentence 1st... what you wrote doesn't qualify.
  • It is not a complete sentence. Use it like "Looking back at our beautiful moments, I ... ".
  • That is a sentence fragment. You could say "We were looking back at our beautiful moments", perhaps in reference to the question "Why were you looking at those photographs?". Better to use definite pronouns as well, "Jo and I were looking back at our beautiful moments". But what is there is just a fragment of a sentence.
  • it is grammatically correct..but it is not a complete sentence. You have to say "looking back at our beautiful moments (...I can honestly say the I feel we wasted no time)...or something like that --you have to have a subject and a verb.
  • You have no verb; rather you have a gerund "looking" which is a verbal noun, or a nounal verb depending on which academic you talk to. Basically, as it is now, as others have said, it's an incomplete sentence. Put in a verb and a subject, and then you'll have a sentence!
  • For you grammar teacher not. For me yes. Grammar teachers want you to build complete sentences. But in particular situations, you can forget some of those rules. For instance in a chatroom. Imagine you come at the end of you life. Looking back at your beautiful moments. And at all the time you have lost doing useless things. What would you do? Grammatically more correct would be: "hello jas!!! miss you!!! welcome to multiply!!.. yep,che che's right!! easier to share stuff here!!.. have you seen yung bluchiba slideshow?.. it's in my site.. look it up on 'videos'.. hope u enjoy looking back at our beautiful moments!!.. take care kudasai!!" Source: http://fauxfox.multiply.com/guestbook You see? This time it says: "hope u enjoy looking back at our beautiful moments!!.." That makes all the difference. Not yet perfect, but better...
  • This is only half a sentence. It requires either a subject or a predicate to complete it. "We were looking back at our beautiful moments." or "Looking back at our beautiful moments brought a tear to her eye."
  • In Formal Standard English that *sentence* is not grammatically correct. However, that *noun phrase* with a gerund at its head *is* grammatically correct. It could be used many ways: Subject: Looking back at our beautiful moments is an act beautiful in itself. Object: I enjoy looking back at our beautiful moments. Subordinate clause Looking back at our beautiful moments, I wondered where it all went wrong. Object of a preposition: I make the mistake of looking back at our beautiful moments. Predicate nominal: My idea of hell is looking back at our beautiful moments. However, in most forms of Informal English (especially the languages of everyday speech, txting, email, chatrooms and forums) it is a perfectly formed sentence. It could answer a question, for example: Me: "What are you doing now?" You: "Looking back at our beautiful moments" It might also complete someone else's statement: You: "Here we are the two of us" Me: "Looking back at our beautiful moments" It still needs some context, however. The following is clearly gibberish: You: "Gorillas are brown: why?" Me: "Looking back at our beautiful moments" Might cause an awkward moment of head scratching! Or possibly men in white coats if I kept repeating it...
