thank you for the votes! thanks for mirrorrorrim for hosting the challenge. Lets have fun. Keep on shooting people! :)
Jeffrey Will: Best piece, IMO. What this achieves so well that some others didn't: proper depth of field. This helps to flatten the image and remove a sense of perspective and direction. Everything is razor sharp, making it more difficult to get a sense at what you're looking at, even though it's quite a common view. This extreme DOF and wide blend of color and dynamic range make for a great abstract. It's easy for you to let go of the idea of a staircase and just look at the shapes and colors, it's really beautiful.
thanks jeff i intended not to reply on your comment because it was the voting period. now this photo placed number 10. i just want to thank you for your vote. you are right all about this photo. i took around 3-4 shots. i have it wider but i was happy stopping down to f4. Can you notice that maroon colors above the rail? its a painting of the The Emirates Palace hotel. anyway, thanks a lot. i appreciate it. ciao!
thanks for the votes.

yep. that is fat. lmao!
For some reasons, those wavy shadow patters made that one long horizontal line looks like going up. :]
Make an imaginary line from the sun crossing the ocean line. look at the intersection point for a couple of seconds. You will notice the waters will move gently. :]
this photo should have won the first place.
this is so on center.
cropping and adjusting the contrast and saturation will nail it.
I got your point on this photo. i feel this. very nice. i like the changing of the dark green grass in front, turning yellowish near the tree and finally brownish tree. And it seems like if you will start from the tree to the green grass in front, it's saying like, this is your spring! i love that yellow flower on the left corner. overall, i like it.
yup. i think its not happening. maybe a green background can help?
