Wouldn't have pegged this as the last of the lot, myself. Though it eschews many aspects of the DPC aesthetic, it's still a compelling enough image I'd have figured an ambiguous 5.0 finish.

Anyway, to echo those who have already commented, I love how brooding this image is. It reminds me of the intro to Fight Club perhaps, and also ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/17507/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_892269.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/17507/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_892269.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. But yours is dirtier, more sinister. I like it. Funny how just some twigs and cardboard could be so evocative...

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Goodness, this is brave. Blur, grain, in-your-face coloration, ambiguity of subject - all ensuring that you put distance between yourself and the admirers of eye-candy-cliche. I like it (despite liking a bit of eye candy myself), I like how it engages the imagination - for me, this is definitely neurological in its suggestion.

Critical stuff: Given the joy of engaging the imagination - I wish you had left us with a less steering title.

Overall: Powerful.
