THis is a very intriguing image. I like the tonal quality and composition quite a lot. Texture just doesn't come across for me though. soryy. 7

Interesting shot, however my attention doesn't focus on texture.

I like the photo, but specifically for this challenge not so much. Sorry!

Beautiful! A little more sharpness next time is my only suggestion. This shot is a really good capture.

this is a very interesting picture but IMHO it is a stretch in a texture challenge

I'm not feeling texture in this pic. But I do like this photo a lot otherwise. It's very interesting and has caused me to pause an contemplate it.

Love the photo, but I'm not sure how it will do in this challenge. The photo on it's own has a very dreamlike quality to it. Very creative.

I can't really tell what the 'Texture' is that you are going for. Interesting shot though.

I love shots like this-- As far as I know, its anybody's guess as to what is actually happening in the photograph. Very cool.. I look forward to finding out what this is about. I'm afraid you'll get knocked because texture obviously takes backseat to the subjects in this photo- I'll give you a 6 anyway. I would rather encourage more shots like this to tell you the truth :-p Kudos

The image is strong but suffers from trying to fit in this context since it is stronger in many areas than in texture. Nice shot though.

where's the emphasis on texture? I want to vote higher than I am.

This is an outstanding photo and I'm going to give it a 10 for sure. I do have a suggestion for what I think might be interesting to do with it outside of the challenge when you are allowed to selectively edit. I would select just the people and make the one in the foreground lighter and the one in the background darker, or play around with such ideas. I think it would be an interesting contrast and juxtaposition.

Nice shot, but it doesn't say textures to me.

Rather a good photograph. Semi-naked man's arm appearing from black woman's head is odd seeming, but in a slightly surreal image like this it doesn't offend me. Oh to dodge and burn a touch though - compositionally, that near-silhouette pulls the eye so strongly, and she (he?), being not quite silhouetted my eye is searching for detail there that is difficult to see - kind of unsettling, but not in a good sense. Like it though - softness of toning on the walls through the door add a great sense of marble, and rich stone-work, and then that oddly posed figure to add some more disruption. Almost great.

+ Wow I like this photo; it is somewhat strange in a special kind of way (do I make any sense?). Excellent use of light and darkness. The expressions of your subject are almost unreal combined with all the other elements in the photo.
- The connection with the challenge is thin; at least thinner than most other photos I have seen so far which may or may not be a good thing :).

Not sure what I'm looking at here. I do like the tones and the shot is clear. Texture..? Sorry I don't know what to say about this one.

This is a photo I normally would not comment on, but I'm trying to comment more. I wouldn't normally comment because I just don't quite "get" the texture here. I mean, any photo will have some texture, but this doesn't really emphasize that to me. I'm not sure what's going on in the photo - a performance of some kind? Looks like the next person waiting in the wings?

I would have used a little soft directed light on your model's face. I would also have increased DOF as much as possible.
