I didn't get to your photo in the voting. There were a lot of entries. I think it is an original and creative take on the challenge although personally, I don't care for set-ups with titles like this.My feeling is that without the title and the challenge subject the photo doesn't make much sense. I believe a good photograph should be able to be viewed, title-less and outside the DPC world and still make sense and appeal to the viewer. These kind of images never makse sense (to me anyway) outside of the context of a DPC challenge.

It was a good effort in terms of composition and technical details (although I tend to be better with the composition then the technical stuff myself). The subject needs to be further away from the background to avoid the shadows. That, and directing a light just on the background effectively eliminates shadows.

I didn't comment, but I voted your photo a 9. I thought it was one of the more creative shots in the Challenge. Perhaps (this is just my opinion on how the site operates) it was too creative.

Very emotive photo with the tones and shadows. Great job of putting more into your photo than just DOF.

cool concept... the reddish colour cast is interesting, wondering how this would have worked in b/w.

Very well done!!! A very good use of shallow DOF (as opposed to blurred background like many of the other shots.) One of the more creative shots I've come across so far.
