Woo hoo! A blue thumb! You ROCK! :-) The textures are to die for. Ahem. Pun really wasn't intended. But what I like best are the creatures... especially the dragon!

This is a welcome, cooling draught in a parched desert of disappointment.

By interrogating the headstone alone, and eschewing the contrived, you have elevated the challenge theme.

Here is the memorial, and within it the suggestion of the presence still of Mater Nostra. She looks darkly, desperately out at us; hardly discernible yet indubitably there in her compassion and her regrets.

The photograph transcends by a country mile the otherwise predictable stuff that has characterised this paint-by-the-numbers challenge.

Yours is an image that affirms the idea that less is indeed more.

It's a 10 for you (my next highest score was 6). Also the appalling burden of the Order of the Blue Thumb, for which I apologise as it's pretty much the kiss of death in the popular voting. Thank you.

Straight head-on shots like this don't tend to be very interesting. They are documentary but not artistic. Focus also seems a little soft.

I'm not sure what happened here. The picture comes up sideways on my screen. I would have liked to have seen a little more here. The crop is so tight, it is hard to get a sense of scale of the piece, or th context of the place in which it sits.
