I love this picture. Maybe if you hadn't made the decay look so beautiful, it would have been more of a dichotomy. :) Congrats on top ten and an excellent picture.

Oh, Bear! This was one that I picked for a ribbon. It is so well done, depicting a perfect dichotomy. I'm glad it made the front page, but I still think it should have made the HOME page :)

Awesome work!

Thats great dodge/burn you got going on. I've been trying to attain this. This has the look of an HDR conversion in it and I think it works well here.

Love the post editing. Might not suit everybody's taste, but I like how it is almost like a charcoal drawing painted with pastels or color paint. Fantastic composition. One of the best so far in my opinion.

I love this photo. I like the concept alot too. I chose a concept something like this too. I hope yours is scoring better than mine tho :) I really love your processing too. So far, this is my top pick, and my first (& probably only) 10.
