My favourite from the challenge - I really like the moody processing which really contributes to the fairy tale feel.

p.s. I had a quick go:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/85886/120/663114.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/85886/120/663114.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

- USM @ 10,60,0
- selective colour adjustment on cyan of Red to bring out the pink glow on the beauty therapist
- bit of levels/contrast

I'm not sure it's a great improvement but the colours definitely pop more.

I didn't vote either but I'll try to give some constructive criticism. Personally I like the composition, especially as an EP. It's clearly a somewhat difficult exposure, limited by the highlights on the client's face...and with Basic ruleset means you're limited in what you can do to address it. I think the main reason for not appealing to voters isn't the composition but the processing (or lack of) but in the colours/sharpness/contrast/tones. As it is, it has a bit of a snapshot feel to it purely because of the colouring I think. Maybe try a small USM (10, 60, 0 is my standard output settings) and play with both levels/curves and selective colour to try to make the image 'pop' a little more. Also worth playing with the aperture to find the right level of ambient and flash light in the scene (if you have the time). You can control the amount of flash or ambient light by varying aperture and in this photo might have given you some extra options to isolate your subjects from the background.

In any case I think this is a better photograph than the score and place suggest, but it does seem that bright colours appeal to DPCers, and muted/washed out colours tend to turn them off.

Hope this helps, N

Probably the strongest image of the lot imho. More depth than most here, and with a subtle touch to deliver a strong message. Good stuff.

Very nice - I just wish it had just a touch more contrast, or heavier blacks. You've really captured the torrential rain and that poor woman caught in it without a brolly....definitely a harsh environment with nice composition, but just let down but the tonal contrast I think.

Tanning beds?

Comment:
Absolutely brilliant. This is my favourite so far by a long long way. It's original, the composition is great with the leading lines from feet and bulbs, and the tonal contrast from the b&w conversion. Anyone that comments about it being off centre is talking hot air imho :) Well done - giving this a 10.

Well if you didn't shoot grainy undersized images with better control of your white levels maybe it wouldn't be quite so harsh.
