I kept thinking shooting a landscape where a picturesque hill was the central focus of the image could work well for this challenge, but I couldn't really find a suitable hill where there wasn't also clutter in the scene. Then I happened to be standing in a public park next to some landscaped hills when I noticed my daughter running up the slope. Shot with a wide angle 12mm lens, the actual hill is not nearly as large as it seems and she's not nearly as small. But, I quite like the look and feel of the image. Be interested to see how it is received.

I loved this one and failed to comment earlier. I had this one third in my ranking. Beautiful shot.

This was one of my favourite shots of the challenge. Got an 8 from me.

Love the b&w, processing and overall feel of the picture.

This makes me laugh, and it's like I've seen it somewhere before, I know I have, maybe I dreamed about it.

I still think I've seen this before, come back to bump this and award you one of these ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Outstanding composition and such a story too. (Just commenting on my 10s)

Beautiful and poignant.
I wonder if the sky should have been processed so much.

Beautiful idea and composition with the girl running across the horizon. I'm not sure I like the processing. I generally prefer b&w but color might make this more dramatic.
