One of my favorites from this challenge. Simple, elegant, warm, and familiar to parents everywhere. Thanks for sharing this.
That is an intersting craft. It must be anchored in a river and the current flowing 'round it makes it appear to be moving backwards.
On a tangent - I'm wondering why 'comments' are possible during the entry stage of the challenge? Is this something I've not noticed before, or something new?

Thanks very much. I got lucky on the first shot, and after that the bubbles were smaller and wouldn't stick to the glass - I think the glass has to be dry, and the beverage freshly opened. It was fun trying.
Great shot for the challenge. I like the very small amount of color, and of course the eyes. This was one of my favorites - although I thought 13 and 14 were prettty good too.
This was my favourite from the challenge. Some other photos had more mud, but this has genuine expression.
This was one of my favorites from this challenge - I think because it shows imagination. You created this from a blank canvas rather than just noticing something and recording it.
I liked this photo. The color is so strange and warm. The human silhouettes add a lot to the image, I think. Thanks for sharing.
A bit different from the rest. This was one of my top picks for this challenge.
Love the colors - the way they change from cool to hot in layers like that. The infinite trees and branches are interesting too. I voted a 3 on this one - that's as high as this grumpy old man went for this challenge.
One of my favourites. The bit of highlight on the horse's muzzle, legs, and mane are really nice. And the mystery of the background adds something too. Nice shot!
I admire photos that are created from imagination - rather than simple representations of the reality that's all around us. I can see from your 'notes' that you worked hard on this. I think it's a great image making a statement about the acceleration of knowledge in our time.
This was my favourite for this challenge. Love the color and tone. No sense of scale, so somehow I imagined they were very large. Thanks for sharing this one.
This was one of my favourites from this challenge. I've made photographs much like this myself - trying to say something about the temporal nature of things. You could do this as a triptych - three frames showing the figure gradually fading, or disappearing altogether.
Anyway, thanks for sharing this one. I enjoyed it. Different from the rest.

This is a lovely photograph. Yousuf Karsh - like. . . . Steve
There were some really good photos in this challenge, but this was my favourite. The expression is everything - you can almost hear the scream. Thanks for sharing this!
Thanks for that explanation. It is slowly coming clear.
Meanwhile, the good pictures seem to rise to the top, so I guess it's working.
Are you allergic to cat photos, or just to real cats? It would be difficult to spend much time on the internet without seeing cat pictures. I get them every day in my email, sent by well-meaning acquaintances.
Sorry, I didn't read the thread before - went all through it just now. It's amazing, and sad, how quickly things can get nasty!
There are a lot of people writing to the forums unsure of how the voting system works. I think that's an indication that a lot of us don't understand it. We're not all computer experts familiar with bayesian statistical analysis.
I think I'm going to give up now because my brain hurts. For the time being, I'll keep voting as I have been. The really good pictures seem to rise to the top, so I guess it must be working.
I liked this one a lot. The body language and expression give it some life.
This was one of my favourites from this challenge. Can't explain why - there's mystery to it.Your swans in 'Spring has sprung' are lovely too. Good luck!

I have read DPR's 'voting tips' - several times.
What I still don't know is this - does the total number of votes affect the outcome?
Seems a simple enough question - Anybody know?
