I'm so glad this got such great attention, Tib! Paul is right: this is one of the more remarkable captures on the revolution. Poignant, grand, yet very human.

Intriguing indeed, bumping up.

The sense of scale and isolation is amazing. Wish the yellow cast had been removed from her face

strange and powerful composition.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

I like the strong yellow in the image and the odd scene against a city backdrop.

Interesting photo. Well composed, I like the way all the elements interact, and the colors are nice.

the mystery of the urban camp, sanctified by saffron.

So crisp and perfect that it looks like a collage; it's telling a heroic story

Love this. All those chrome yellows and ice blues; it's visually fabulous. Also remarkably well ordered and composed for something you could control only in terms of your own positioning. And it's a very sweet bit of social commentary too, comprising the simple and inoffensive juxtaposed with the symbol of the big bucks in the background (and a nameless void hovering behind that).

You can't spell umbrella, but that don't mean nothin' ... half the people voting on this will think that Hong Kong is a really big gorilla.

Anyway, it's a real photograph of an unexpected but real deployment of the umbrella as both sword and shield. Almost certainly the most significant event in the 2000-odd-years of umbrella history. And you were there, and got a brilliant shot ... better and more contemplative than most photojournalists would have come up with: the tear gas canisters bouncing off the parasols. Yours is better, and has more depth, than such predictable bromides. Have a 10 and an Order of the Thumb. Thank you.
