These pictures are absolutely amazing and evocative and bring tears of joy to my eyes. I dont care if they are "orchestrated" or "digital art" as claimed by some. They take me back to a special place in my childhood that I would often dream about. A place of solitude and isolation, far away from the humdrum of daily lives in a city teeming with millions of people. My favorite poem since my childhood days has been Robert Frost's "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening" and whenever I read the poem I feel that I am a bystander invisibly looking into a scenery such as the ones depicted in some of your work. The difference being the horse replaced with the mastiff in your pictures.I really appreciate you sharing these wonderful images.
jmgir: Yes and again a 1/2 star rating, this is annoying. The host should contact the voter and ask why this low rating. Thanks.
Seems like this is the case pretty much with every challenge. I always find that there is someone who is low rating the best pictures (on purpose ?). Maybe this is another contestant who is trying to game the challenge by low rating pictures that he/she deems are better than their own entry.
