Hey everyone--

Thanks for all the votes on this image, one of my personal favorites thus far. Unfortunately, I was unable to submit an original for this image, being in Boston for the past week. It is unfortunate that this would have been my first Honorable Mention, but there are plenty more challenges that I will participate in in the near future.

Once again, thank you for the kind comments and votes, and I look forward to entering in more competitions.

One of the tops in this round. Nicely done! I empathize with her completely as I used to hang out in a cemetery at 2 in the morning. Very peaceful and relaxing (no, not a goth!)

Those spikes of the fences, look threatening and she looks like she knows it.

I like this a lot! The composition and exposure are excelent. For me there's one minor glitch though. The image doesn't quite support the title. If the model was looking less directly to the camera it may have given a stronger impression of being lost in thought. Her direct gaze gives the feeling of engagement with the viewer not deep thought.

Very nice. I love the gate in front, it adds a feeling of solitude without benig distracting to the image.

The railing at the front that's sticking up.... I wish that was further to the left, it kinda distracts from the model. If I ignore the railing this shot is one of my favorites... a 7 or an 8 I think :)

Nice shot. I like the detail here and the contrasts.

08/22/2007 03:17:41 AM
it would probably look better without the fence

Kind of a freaky place to think, but good shot nonetheless.
