Based on the other thread, now I'm curious: what is the first comment you received, and who was it from?

My first comment received, which was also on my first entry, was from ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Smardaz

I'm not a big fan of oof foreground objects that take up alot of space but it seems to work for this shot. It gives this a peek through the woods feel.

Hey, it wasn't a critique, so that was good! It actually did reasonably well for a first challenge, but looking back on it now, I can see why it didn't pull in a higher average.

Wow, that was a bit harsh -- and from someone that never submitted to a challenge. However, I would have to say you have learned to edit quite well.

I'm not posting a thumb. You can dig it up yourself if you want to. It was a candid from my sons' birthday party. A very unauspicious first entry. Sure to disappoint almost as much as my more recent entries.

Oy. That's even more embarrassing than the image itself.

Really nice processing on this. The sky probably didn't need to be so deeply saturated, but I like the contrast between the dusk lighting on the car and the bright sky. I also like the variety of colors in the truck.

Yo_Spiff checked in later with this to say:
Love these old rusty crusties, another for my faves.
