Thank you RuthC.
Beautiful photograph - the colours, tones, expressions - everything. Deserving of first place for sure. Good work!
Awwww! This should have won. That's a cute dog.
Great timing! This was one my favorites in the challenge.
I don't very often say this - but 'nice composition'. Lots of texture and detail, and the colours are rich. The contrast of the blue water sets the rust off. Good work! Congratulations on a well-deserved win!
Powerful photo! That's life in the city, in our time, I guess. The earphone cables really add to the sense of indifference and isolation. Looks sharp enough where it needs to be sharp that you could crop it a little. Good work.
cjf2,Thanks for the comment. The challenge 'theme' was pretty vague. This is just doodling.
The host is running a whole series of challenges with different aspect ratios like 9:16 vertical landscape, and 1:1 aspect nature landscape. I believe that '1:1 aspect ratio' here means a square crop - and has nothing to do with the magnification ratio.
Nice photo. I like the strong light and simple color scheme of rust and cool blue tones. Good work!
Very good technique - almost no noise at ISO 3200! I thought this was one of the best in the challenge.
I respect your technique for this shot. You've got all the runners in focus - at f/2.8! Good work!
Excellent photo! The colours are very rich, and the expression is so direct. One of my favorites in the challenge.
I like your photo a lot. Not sure why. There's a light feeling to it, and it has a lot of nice detail, while being soft at the same time. Good work. One of my favorites in the challenge.
I admired this image in the 'Starry Night' challenge, and again here. Very nice work!
I like photos that have a message, and this is one. Even without the title, it makes a clear statement. Good work, and congratulations on the win!
I like your photo. Thanks for posting, and thanks too for the information about it. I've never seen a bridge quite like that before.
That's a cute child. Great lighting, and interpretation of the somewhat vague 'theme' of the challenge.
I wasn't familiar with that album cover, but I looked it up - and Wow! - you did an excellent job reproducing it.
Congratulations! Great photo, and perfect for the challenge.
Perfect for the challenge, and with a photographic twist. Great idea, great photo!
