Challenge: Art of 2016 (Standard Editing*)
Collection: 2017

Oh wow - a yellow. I certainly didn't expect this. Thanks for all the votes. I guess I'm a bonafide artist now :-)

This is my third iPhone-taken ribbon too, which i think is cool.

---

putting the original up because i got a couple of comments about the edit:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/115000-119999/117474/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1194156.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/115000-119999/117474/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1194156.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
i felt my edit was quite light in this image. i think the strongest filter that i applied was the vignette.

First of all, congrats on the ribbon... not easy in a challenge like that.

I have mixed feelings about this image: I think it deserved a top 3/5/10 and I like it. At the same time if I look at the original I can see a 'far from perfect' image. Editing is maybe not too strong but it completely change the perception of the photo. And it makes me wonder which is the meaning of Art?.

' waitingsilence and I were taking a look at the first 30 images of this challenge and we often disagreed about which were the best ones. Well, I'm sorry if I used your image to talk about the challenge in general, so I stop here. Congrats on the ribbon, I truly think you deserved it :)

Obviously not as enhanced by processing as I thought. Nice job. Thanks for posting the original.

I gave you a 10 on this, but only because I thought you used a crayon, and I love the taste of crayons.

My delusion doesn't need have to have a moon in the sky
My delusion doesn't need a blue lagoon standing by
No month of May, no twinkling stars
No hideaway, no soft guitars

My delusion doesn't need a castle rising in Spain
Or a dance to a constantly surprising refrain
Wide awake, I can make my most fantastic dreams come true

My delusion doesn't need a thing but you
and maybe some wet stairs and an umbrella.

Absolutely haunting, and fantastic!

Dark mysterious, kind of disturbing, I guess art can do that sometimes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hauntingly captivating. The staircase looks like it is leaning a bit and draws my attention, however, this is one of my top picks. Very art worthy.

I do like this. A lot. I've given it a 9. It was a 10, but I couldn't shake the sense that this is more about the processing than the image itself - of course they complement; but I feel you have begun to lose your vision, your photography with your chosen edit.

I do like the overall motif and the lighting though. A lot.

Nice and moody. I like the dark. I could picture this as a book cover.

The processing makes this mundane photo more artistic, there was however nothing to start with.

But she's walking into the light. I love it. My only 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2017 12:43:32 AM
oh my. this is pure awesomeness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2017 07:04:28 PM
Is it up or down, does she walk into the light or out of the darkness, or is it all of no consequence at all-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2017 04:13:43 PM
Sometimes, life actually feels like that. Wonderful job.10

Such a powerful mood to this -- obviously enhanced by the processing. I would have no idea how to achieve this.

I love these mysterious gems.
