Photographer’s Notes
Walking through the local mall with my iPhone … okay in my defense, my wife and I had just eaten at a fashionable restaurant and I had two martinis, and an after dinner drink – so shoot me – and cut this image a little slack.

A refreshing take on the challenge, which seemed to be full of fantasy more than surrealism. I enjoyed the creative titling and was impressed to see this is an iPhone image. I also like the subtle color palette and the graceful interplay of the the arcs that define the lines throughout the image. Well done.

Absolute travesty this didn't do better. Shameful.

points for evoking Communism, which the Surrealists got entangled with.

Ahhhhh. Magnificent. Just the kind of image I enjoy. Love the way you've processed the eye! Top shot of the challenge so far.

Edit: in a challenge where I gave one of my lowest average scores ever, this image stood out head and shoulders above all the others. A well-deserved 9!
