In reply to:

Terry L: Cheat schmeat. I am jealous. Forty-three pals who like you so much that they will register with dpreview just to vote for you ... that is amazing. Following this chap's example I thought I would do the same, but after counting up the number of friends who would do this for me I got to a grand total of three, which is pathetic compared with Harish. Such a popular chap deserves his win.

Lesson 1. learned: Don't expect to win a popularity contest with a good photograph!
Lesson 2 learned: It is better to have good friends than making good photographs !
Lesson 3 learned (this is for real): Inviting all your good friends to vote for you is not considered cheating and you wont be DQ for this !

motobloat: At last, a camera for hipsters living off of their parents' money! Pretty easy to afford with a $10,000 a month stipend from dad, and soooo retro! Does it do instagram filters too?

Seriously though, besides hipsters and the insanely wealthy, I can't see much of a target market for this specialty device...

Sure, we Greeks sit around all day long, never work, we don't ever pay taxes and spend like crazy.... Come and visit us sometime, hardworking man, live with the real people for a little while, and maybe you will revise your opinion.

Just beautiful my friend ! Well deserved win ! The moment I saw it I knew I would compete for 2nd place downwards (17th eventually). I would really like to hear the opinion ot the voters (obviously co-contesters) that rated you with 0,5 stars!

On Path in the Masterclass: Composition challenge (6 comments in total)

Thank you for you kind words. It was my first win ! :)

It is really nice when a picture you value is appreciated by others

It was actually the last entry in the challenge, and was anxious that it would be full in any moment, hence my very short description and typos.

Fog was really there (shot was on a greek mountain village) and I tried to enchance it in CS4. B&W conversion and burning and dodging really helped in that respect.

Kind regards

Dimitris
