"A reaction (since you asked in the reaction club): Something about this made me feel sad, almost profoundly so. Some of it was the subject matter, something that obviously once held memories for someone, something important enough to shoot on slide, yet now gone, forever, unrecoverable, lost. The way the damage appears, especially in the film and the left slide, increased the strength of that reaction in me. The use of the plants and the drawing brought me back a bit, making me feel the slides were not so lost; why give preference to the originally captured image? Just because it had the luck of being first in time? Maybe this is how these slides should be used, not holding some out of focus image of a model on a car hood or darkness because the photographer had his finger over the lens, but interacting with life and beauty and making art. There was still something, though, that pushed me back toward sadness, and until I read the comments, I didn't realize that it was the space in the lower left corner. Compositionally this works for me, great lines and flow. But given the subject matter and its arrangement, the lower left space adds to the feeling of sadness for me. There's just something . . . "

Keep up the good work, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' rheverly!

Mighty kudos to the man from Narch

The comment you were awarded for was amazing but I remember from the recent black and white challenge that the comments that you left on my images (and others) were always positive and helpful
