Fabulous work perfect for the challenge. Sickens me though that humans have to defile nature.

Ah, found them. Wonderful photo, and good use of distraction that doesn't really distract.

Beautiful photo. I don't know how distracting the etchings are. If my attention hadn't been drawn to them, and if it were a different challenge, I don't think that it would occur to me to be bothered by them.

This is a good capture while still within the challenge of having distractions :-) 10 from me.

Great picture, beautiful scenery. I can see the scripts on the rocks is one distracting element, not sure about a second one (unless you count these scripts as more than one element).

I think those distractions give it character.

Yes would of cropped out the bushes up front, love the water.
