I am unbecomingly jealous; I have not shot anything so beyond the camera in a very long time. a world full of signs and portents...

So cool and magical. I love it when something simple like a shadow makes a scene become a story.

One of my favorites, and I can't begin to say why.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 9s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Puzzling and compelling - look at that repeating hand!
2. Shadows and scratches and reflections - marvellous
3. That transection of the lower image - bold and unapologetic
4. The lovely blue toning
5. Depth and flatness - together.

Either Don's or Jan's I would guess (or possibly even an eclectic Nixter...) I'll guess Don.

Great stuff.

Remarkable seeing! I hope this didn't turn out as you originally planned. For me, those are the most rewarding shots.

I like this so much without knowing just why that I'm left wondering who's the artist; you or me?
It's probably you.
In my top four. Thank you.

I see no sin in playing hide and seek with your viewers.

Sure, but they don't know.
