RuthC: After receiving comments you can enter a second improved version of your first picture.Include "second version" in the title.DO NOT WITHDRAW THE FIRST PHOTO THOUGH. we should be able to compare them.
These are the rules as set down by the hosts....
Excuse me...but you can also consider that someone has a different language from yours...I had the same problem and i must say i didn't understand correctly the way to add a new version.Hope that you consider that this is not a war...But a friendly place...So please...Calm down
Sorry but i wasn't able to submit the second version without withdrowing the first one...Forgive me but perhaps i didn't understand the way correctly.
Now it's really more attractive!
I agree with Patty and i have to say that the pier is a perfect choice here.Good work!
Sorry dear friend...This shot is too busy for my eyes! :)...Nothing personal but I really have some problems
I use the words by Zoran K taken from a comment of the entry "the island" (surely more clear than mine)
"I think we have a misunderstanding about a third dimension (depth) . Shallow DOF is not necessarily a 3D space effect. Shallow DOF makes space separation keeping only one area in focus."
I think that this shot fits very well this challenge even if it hasn't leading lines or something like that...Good work!
The leading lines work very well here...It perfectly suits the challenge
Every element work well for me...Perhaps You could crop a little on the left side
I think that you could crop it from the left near the first tombstone.This is a great example for this thematic but honestly i find it not too creative...P.S. don't forget to replace it with the longest side of the picture between 1000 and 1600 pixels ;) ...I'm joking :)
Nothing to say about the composition and the effect you obtained.Anyway I think that this shot can benefit with an higher contrast
Personally I find that the composition is too busy...However It matches the subject of the challenge.
I perfectly agree with Zoran K
It's surely an interesting shot...It's strange and delivers a good idea...But perhaps it could be more pleasent if the plane was empty.
I'm a little bit confused about the subject...Perhaps it could work better if the fort were not in focus.
This image perfectly matches the challenge...Obviously it can be cropped in a lot of ways but it's a detail for me...Everyone has a personal opinion about composition...the result is more than evident here!Good work!
Cathy Szymanski: .Picture 2 is very sexual and provocative and should be DQ'd
Why!!??Where is nudity here? :)HOT :[adjective] sexually excited or exciting; "was hot for her"; "hot pants" http://www.elook.org/dictionary/hot.html
LeeStar: I do hope the voting problem is fixed before this challenge is over... but if it isn't and I'm still unable to vote, I'll let all the entries know what I *would* have voted. :(
Ok...Find out the problem...Unfortunately we have to vote with IE...Firefox and Chrome don't seem to work...Very very sad! :-))))I hate IE!:-))
Me too! :-)
