Love the story Anita... it makes me feel a little proud of being Italian. I should remember it when my country disappoints me.

Congrats on your top 10 :)

This processing distills the image into its in elemental emotions. Memorable. Now about those bars... ? I give it an 8 anyway.

Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

I love the blur that adds 'texture' - it is like you can see and feel the brushstrokes on the canvas. It also adds to the mood of the lone man on the bench. It has a lonely 'bygone' tone to it. There is also a 'chill' to the air that I can feel. The feeling of sadness is heavy as the chill air where the man has chosen to sit out in the empty landscape.

The end of the pin-hole camera age? Well done.

I looked at this a long while wondering how to comment, because the photo really appeals to me. I can't put my finger on any one specific thing, just the overall feel, so I guess that means you've done everything right (in my eyes at least). Great job!

This is a fantastic photo. Really like how it turned out.

Wonderful! Composition and processing is perfect.

Very nice. I don't normally like so much blur, but you pulled it off with the lines and reflection.

Effective, but it conveys an unpleasant mood of sorrow and regret to me. Well done.
