hey guys ..
a couple of days till rollover ..
and this has done very poorly ...
5.2 .. 5.4 .. are its defaults ..

i was expecting it to maybe hit the 6 mark ..

not sure if anyone will see this comment as this will probably be on the last page ..

but i wanted opinions as to why ppl have been marking it so low ..

i mean its even got the sun burst .. lol ..
and the abandoned building is pretty obvious ..

just so you know .. i risked life and limb climbing over barbed wire fences and gates to get into the enclosure where this little church stood ..
and also risked blinding myself looking thru the viewfinder at the sun ..

anyway .. would appreciate feedback .. as i'm here to learn ..
and thankyou .. :)

after rollover ..
from a famine to a feast .. !! ..
thankyou for your wonderful comments ..
especially being hung in Don posthumous's Fantasy Gallery .. thats particularly AWESOME .. !! ..
thankyou .. :)

I neglected to vote. Hard to figure out exactly how I would have marked. I did not look at the others. Never mind.
Probably 8. I liked it more on instagram. Here I get a bit lost visually. Too much great information for just two eyes. And I really can't crop it. This awful feeling that something is really good but....

As a side note, I find funny if not too dangerous your risky way to take this shot but in a work on art nobody cares if it was done in 3 years or 3 hours. No fairness!!!!!

F16 was a good choice. I love that you revealed all the details by closing down the aperture. We were even treated to a star burst! Thanks to your posthumous award I stumbled on your photograph. Great work!

Great job, Roz. Always would be nice to know why people vote less than 5 on images like this. I think it's great. Perspective gives the feeling of standing against the wall, maybe hiding... from the cops... uh oh, they released the K9 unit!
10th is pretty good and a PH to boot! :)

I gave this an 8, Roz, my highest mark. The light imbues every part of the image with sparkling, enthusiastic life. I love how the tree and the side of the building play together -- it's as if the tree is trying to draw the building into dancing. It's a joyful interplay. I like the grassy expanse which spreads throughout. It's a lovely photograph.
My theory about why it hasn't received a higher result is that some people felt that it didn't have sufficient "building." Their literal threshold wasn't met. My personal opinion is that such an approach is narrow-minded and tosses away many fine images that merely include the challenge subject in a larger whole. In other words, artistry is given short shrift. So likewise regard these marks with a shrug of the shoulder and a soupcon (with that squiggle under the c) of pity.
