Two forms of art in one work - drawing and photography. Beautiful.
Nice angle. I wonder how you took the shot. Was there a platform to stand on or did you just lean over the wall and stretch your hand as far as you could (doesn't seem like that though)? I am puzzled.
Hmm, P&S IQ without P&S convenience. They really think their customers that stupid?
Too P&S-ish in my opinion. Can not see any difference from any other modern compact camera (other than the image size of course). I was expecting more DSLR-like quality.
Very bold image. True winner.
Beautiful capture; but liked the story even more ;)
Very surreal. Reminds me of Dali paintings. I would also love to hear some details about it.
Very simple yet different from everything I've seen... Congrats!
I think this image was very relevant to the title of the challenge and compliments very well this rather controversial subject. Congratulations on the 7th place, well deserved.
Thanks to all for your kind comments. I was quite surprised with the result as it was one of those rather spontaneous snapshots taken with simple P&S camera when you just happen to be in the right place at the right time. Despite the average quality of the image, apparently many viewers really liked the composition. It remains one of my favorite shots too.
I almost fell off my chair when found my shot took the first place. Yours was my personal favorite. Unfortunately, it proves my theory of "dirty voting" in these challenges - competitors are just giving low marks to any shot that is a potential "threat", especially in a thumbnail view. Honestly, who would give this shot 0.5 or 1.0 star? I have no other explanation. I really hope DPReview would do something to improve the quality of voting system; it's starting to stink really bad...
I checked your other entries after your first place in the Hot category and this shot made me smile. Very good match to the subject. Hope it will win too.
I absolutely love this shot. The emotion just makes me breathless. Maybe partially because my kids are of this age now too... Congratulations!
My second favorite right next to the winner. Congrats!
Loved it. Congrats!
It makes literally a breathtaking effect, like standing at the edge of a cliff. If only I could have a large print of it...
