salsaguy: Very sad image. fits the theme well. the shadows almost speak to me that he is "imprisoned" in his poor life. Wish it was on a cloudy/overcast day and not in middle of the day to make it feel more drab/dreary but then you wouldnt have the harsh shadows so its a good compromise. keep up the good work.
Thank you for your interest in the work.
thejohnnerparty: Very nicely done.
Thank you for your interest and kind words.
Please explain why my 4 were disqualified from the work of your challenge , they are the last link in my gallery?http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1437664693/photos
KonstRuctor: Хороший снимок :-)
Спасибо, радует внимание соотечественника к работе. :)
NancyP: Eurasian Tree Sparrows, I see. Convivial creatures, they are. I am rather fond of them, they are my town's (St. Louis, MO, USA) #1 birding attraction, having been imported from Germany in the late 1800s and having settled only within 50 to 70 miles radius from St. Louis.
Sparrows in our area, in Russia, a lot is found everywhere, as many pigeons, jackdaws, crows and rooks.
Saleen1999: That is so beautiful. Did you make that? If so, you did an outstanding job. I didn't see a feeder to go along with it but I assume you have it inside so the food won't get blown away from the winds and rain and snow.
Again, very nice job.
Thank you for your interest in the work. This beautiful bird feeders did not I, and it is made in the monastery at Tolga in Yaroslavl, Russia.
jaykumarr: very very good shot.

thejohnnerparty: Very interesting. The shape of that tree seems so perfect. Is that natural?
Thank you for your interest in the work. I think that the crown of the tree is shaped people.
Nik2: The idea is excellent, but technically not quite, to my regret ... Congratulations to first place in the challenge!
Old photo for another film? It is even more interesting, and much explains ... :)
The idea is excellent, but technically not quite, to my regret ... Congratulations to first place in the challenge!
Doberman: Raspoutine? :)
Yes, it is the reincarnation of Rasputin, but do not tell anyone about this secret ... :)
I believe that no more than three ... :) Just kidding, it is not rich enough to have more than one wife.

Skylane: An absolute classic still life.
Thank you, I am very pleased your attention to this work.
BMurman: Beautiful processing.
Your words are very pleased, thank you.
John Nall: As I said yesterday, all too often these challenges are about precisely meeting the specific criteria of the challenge and little more. Without taking anything away from the 1st place finisher, I cannot accept that this image was the best submitted. Unfortunately, many of the entries were not available for review or evaluation until the last day. I think I'm done with the challenge competition.
Thank you for your opinion.
Boky: very nice!
Thank you for your interest in the work!
RuthC: This is an interesting capture, Nik2, of a slice of life, and it deserves a top place in this challenge. Bright sunlight shining on the red window frames, light and cheerful floral curtains, a cat soaking up the sun, and the elderly lady enjoying its presence.Ruth :-)
Our older people often live very difficult ... Thank you very much, RuthC, to pay attention to this work, for the kind words.
tarakanchik: great shot!
Thank you for your attention to this work!
