Uh, is that the Black Lagoon there? Nice spooky look.

Beatifully dark color scheme, but there doesn't seem to be a good solid subject. Just seeing knees down of the person is IMHO distracting. The circular arch almost poses as a subject, but leaves me wanting.

Nicely timed and composed photograph, with good detail and not over-saturated. Nicely seen, especially with the crop only showing a small amount of the human sense of scale. ((8))

most interesting composition. i hope this is not getting overlooked in this super-sized challenge, and that viewers are giving it the time necessary to wander through it. for me, i think you have competing focal points. i want to zero in on the shows, but my eyes keep getting pulled to the bright reflection under the walkway. well, that's just my opinion. you have a fine image, and i hope it does well for you. good luck with this, and all the challenges yet to come!

Good idea and well composed. Especially like the out-of-focus foreground in contrasting color. But it would have been better if the model's feet were a bit more apart (or one at a slight angle, or in front of the other). First impression is that it's a person standing on one leg...7

I assume the feet are the subject, so IMO the drainage hole moves my off the subject, qiute distracting.

Saunter: A leisurely walk or stroll.

Well captured, lovely quietness in this shot.

A little too dark and busy for me with the blurred plants in the fg...

really interesting perspective here. I can't quite put my finger on why, but this is surprisingly effective. 7.
