Thanks to all for the comments during and after this challenge - they really do mean far more than the Ribbon/placing.
I'm flattered.
01/17/2005 04:45:35 AM
No, no, no its terrible, over exposed, highlights blown, no detail in the shadows, composition is awful, doesn't meet the challenge at all. Sorry Brad this is just too bad to make any useful comments on - it should be DQ'd .....

Bah I wish I could take photos so badly ;-)

Truly a great capture !!

All the best

BradP- I have to say you are in what they call the 'ZONE'. Another great picture in so many ways. Congratulations on another ribbon but most important another great photograph! I can see in your photographs an effort to achieve the results you have pictured in your mind and then put to pixels with with great success. Keep up the good work.

Wow, just saw this one.

This is certainly one of your better submissions - and given your recent run of outrageous scores that's saying something.

Great job!

Hey Brad: Another masterpiece and another image to hang. You will need to invest in more real estate to accomodate your talent. Boy are you becoming a neavy hitter! A well deserved blue.

Without the figure there would be no sense of scale. A combination of drama and peace.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2005 01:45:37 PM
Pretty place. I like your placement of the person in the frame, the nice range in tones and contrast and the use of black and white for this particular shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/08/2005 06:35:05 AM
A very difficult challenge. I have not seen many pictures that actually incorporate a well done balanced and interesting scene. This picture is one of them. Good job.

I like this. Waldo seems misplaced in a lot of the entries, but the title and scenery makes her fit in this image.

Breathtaking moment. The tonal range is excellent and the exposure perfect. Very strong entry.
