Excellent!

( I just realised that this was my comment no 1000.
I am so glad that it is with your picture, Goodman.
Happy New Year! )

Warm Regards,

Have to come back again and reiterate my previous comment and the comments of those below who said you got robbed. This is brilliant.

I have to say..I can't believe the score on this. I thought it would ribbon. It's awesome! I love your style!

Time for it to go into my favourites too!

This would have won the Goodman challenge. :P

Congratulations on your posthumous blue...so deserving. I came back and looked at this picture at least a dozen times during voting. Guess it's time to put it in my favorites!

Absolutely fantastic! I'm one of your 10s. My top pic. Really, it doesn't get any better than this.

very cool shot...love the tone and the textured feel. i love those kites, too! excellent work.

I feel sad for the people who didn't give this a 10. The door was open for them into a frightening beautiful universe, and they decided not to enter. The moment I looked at this photo I knew it was the Posthumous Blue Ribbon.

I'm anxious to hear about your processing. I think this is the most interesting shot of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2007 09:41:29 PM
Very intresting texture used on this, nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2007 10:37:33 AM
Interesting effect. The sky has a very odd texture but I quite like it. The eyes looking at the child is a nice touch

7 - Nice unique image. Bit confused by the pp/effects, will check back pc.

amazing image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2007 11:48:06 AM
This is an awesome, surrealistic image. Almost reminds me of an alien invasion. Fabulous job! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I rather enjoy this, although the processing is bizarre at the very least, and perhaps distracts from the integrity of a fine image...

... made me think though. Still can't see why it should be made to look like it was torn out of an old magazine. Can't see why not either, mind you ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2007 06:45:00 PM
absolutely brilliant. one of my favourites. looking forward to knowing what PP did you do.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2007 06:05:01 PM
I can't put my finger on exactly why, but this image is so amazingly totally awesome that I can't stop staring at it. Very well done! A fav and a 10 from me!

Not your typical image here. Very interesting.

awesome! 10!

Love the squid! a bit too busy for my tastes but a nice shot none the less.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2007 02:42:28 PM
wow, what a strange effect..I'm in the middle of an Ed Wood movie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2007 01:28:29 PM
Very interesting image. It has such an old feel to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2007 10:10:29 AM
How very intriguing! I like the "geese" shadows of the kite's tail. Looks to have been taken YEARS ago.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/13/2007 08:04:43 AM
This is an awesome shot! I love the way you processed it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2007 06:44:14 PM
This is a really interesting shot... A hard sell for DPC, but with a lot of feeling. I think the dodging halos around the smaller two kites detracts a touch, but I like the gritty feel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2007 05:53:41 PM
Very interesting feel to the shot, maybe a bit overdone, but still a neat job with the editing, 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2007 11:39:16 AM
to me this looks like an old polaroid that has been lying in a drawer for years. i love it! - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2007 07:25:44 AM
You have created a fantastic effect here. It looks like an old postcard that you might find at the back of the attic

I love the indistictivity of the person in shot (although I am guessing it may not be to everyones tastes)

I may have almost prefered this without the kites which may have given in a real scary sense of dislocation

Still a lovely shot though

hope this is legal as it is an amazing, almost 1950's sci fi image...I would get this validated if I were you 8

I love the way the octopus kite is checkin' out the girl like it's ready to pounce! : )

wow. I like the pp. Different.
