Thanks for that, Ed. Yes, we have light here - but you have wildlife - fox kits, snails, etc. (I loved your snail shot in 'the 500 club' - and you could have entered that in the 'Far Side' challenge too)
I wouldn't have noticed that if you hadn't pointed it out. Lots of sharp detail there!
I liked this. Beautiful child, nice light, and a thoughtful title. Thanks for sharing.
This is really nice! We called these 'DeHavilland 'Harvards' here in Canada. They were used as trainers for many years. Great shot! Nice colours, and the perfect blur in the prop - thanks for sharing this! You were in a third AT-6 ? Must have been fun!
Can't explain why I like this, but I do.
I like your photo! It has a look of calmness to it that belies the conditions at the time. The light is special here. Good work!
I really liked this one. It's calming, simple, and lovely. Thank you for sharing!
I voted 4 stars for this one - that's pretty high for me! I like the simplicity of it, and the abstract look. It's the kind of photo you can read some meaning into. Good work!
Nice photo - a different view of the subject.
Dramatic colours. I liked this shot. The title hints at the relation of light and seasons to the monument's meaning.
I thought this was one of the best shots here. The mystery of light and shadow hint at how the monument may have been used in the past. Great interpretation. Good use of dramatic black and white. Congratulations on your 4th place!
I was hoping this shot would place higher - but you can't win them all. It was one of my favourites because it showed the ancient landmark in context with modern living. I thought it was a good entry for the theme.
I voted high for this one - thought it was great! Shot on Cibachrome? I thought that was a printing process - did they make slide film too? Just curious.
I guess the hair isn't all that spectacular - but you've captured a wonderful expression - sort of a 'Mona Lisa' look - you can't really tell what it means. I thought it was one of the better shots in this challenge. Thanks for sharing!
I voted high for this one - the hair has a really different look.
One of my favorites in this challenge. It's a great shot - the hair, the determined expressiion - perfect!
Looks just like an Ernst Haas image. Good work!
I voted relatively high for this one - it struck me as a good photo and a good match for the Ernst Haas theme. I must say, though, that I always dislike seeing a signature or watermark - but that's just my opinion.
Great shot - thanks for sharing the mystery figure walking into the maelstrom.
Interesting challenge - lots of great shots. I liked yours for the swirling pattern in the water and the lovely shades of blue - thanks for sharing!
I voted high for this shot and was surprised it didn't place higher. It was a difficult challenge - I'm not sure how many voters studied up on Ernst Haas - googling that name brings up more blurry rodeo shots than anything else. (a blurry rodeo shot came in 45th - don't know what to make of that)
Anyway, thanks for sharing!
