I'm so glad this finished so well. I was over in Jamestown during the evening trying to get a 30 second shot but there was still too much light and I couldn't wait - but if I did it 352452.jpg still wouldn't have turned out anything like yours !!

Congratulations!!!

Cool .. that is really sharp .. I wonder what would happen if the exposure was long enough to fog the water ..

Eeps - didn't mean to come across as the grammar police here.
I wanted to post the link to the discussion we had at thread

and a similar one at here.

And just to summarize - from both those threads - the thesaurus gives you synonyms not meanings (they're not the same). So if you pick one of those synonyms like solitary or empty (which are already contradictions) - you're satisfying a different word. (I do sound like the grammar police don't I ?). Anyway - that's probably why the emotional impact of desolation isn't there.

The first thread describes how some people vote based on photographic merit (because they want to improve their photos) and others focus on emotional impact (to improve their art) and how we need both.

Thanks for taking the criticism constructively. I'd rather be one of those people who tells you what they think and the score they gave so we can talk about it than snipe you with low scores with no comment or a good comment :)

Good luck on future challenges.

Edit: removed the quote - too darn big ..

Ahh .. that explains the PM :). You keyed off the synonyms instead of the word. For example: empty is not the same as solitary or ruined or desert. They are meant to approximate desolate not replace it. If you were going for solitary and bleak you nailed it. Hoep that helps.

And yes I know this isn't a grammar site so I'm sorry we don't think about it the same way. Sorry. Gorgeous image though...
