Fits The Challenge-Yes-but~!
Composition-Nice a view from a room looking outside.
Background-Different, institutional looking.
My Opinion- I don't feel this is a bad shot....not until I try and make it fit the challenge. To see the face on the right I had to save this and lighten it. Here it shows too dark. I realize it should be hidden, but it's a bit _too_ hidden. I do note that several of the people that commented could see the face easily enough. It's good, not exciting, or a wow and sure a different look then your usual work.

The person is quite well hidden in this shot. The title hinted the shadows, but after a quick glance I went to the other windows - eventually returned and noticing the face. Well done on meeting the challenge so well, and providing a nice clue in the title.

Please don't take this wrong, but with your title this appears to be a prison or a physichiatric hospital. I don't see it as a photo hiding Waldo in among the "stuff". Maybe that's Waldo on the right side in the dark, but personally I don't feel that is what was meant by the challenge. Therefore, in my opinion, it doesn't meet the challenge. But that's just me. It is a clear clean sharp photo. A little too much of the interior wasted space for my preference.

The texture in this photo is good. There is too much neg. space in this photo.

Nice idea of having Waldo peaking out from behind the shadows so all I can see is his profile. Good one! You cropped that window very squarely there. I wish my windows were that clean. Good job, you met the challenge well here.

Great Waldo interpretation. The buildings are distracting to me. Where is this?

Ohh, waldo is sillouetted on the right side of the frame, in the room. With an about 5 seconds to grab the viewer's attention, this may be a little too hidden. (I kept looking at the building in the background, but gave up - seeing nothing) As most of the foreground is sillhouetted, not much to comment on for the picture and the background just confuses the situation. 5 Swash

Nice photo. Took some looking but finally spotted you. I'm intrigued by the way you've got the dark onto the white snow and the outside building. Niceshot.

I really like the darkness inside and the overcast lighting. However, I think if the background was a tad more interesting, the could be a really great shot. Good job.

One of 5 or so pictures that are good photographs and actually meet the challenge. I love the composition and the reflection of the window panes on the textured floor. The person is well hidden and an interesting profile! I would have moved the potted plant slightly left (or your body) so that its silhouette wasn't cut off and perhaps blurred the view out the window. Also, the bright bit of light neat the person is annoying because it calls the eye there to the hidden part and sort of looks like reflection off of their watch. I think the area would be better solid black. That can be very easily spot edited out later. Great job!
