I wanted to make an image that embraced more than just the basic definition of "perspective", more than just the physical...I'm glad at least some saw it.

In case some didn't realize, in the distant background are a row of "normal" chairs. I'm afraid I'm not a master of the obvious, but it suits me.

Hi, you got an 8 from me. And I also believe that it was seriously underrated. Might be that it spoke to me personally a bit too. But I really like your eye.

This definitely had something to say...more so than any other entry in this challenge. I guess nobody wanted to stop and listen.

This was one of my highest rated captures in the challenge, and it is one of the most underrated images in the final results. Great work, and nice job offering up something that required some thought. I think that you were voted down because the average voter does not take time to really look at the images in challenges. You probably get about 10 seconds of their life, if that. I really like everything about this one. I like the composition, the way the hallway drags your eye to the distant group of chairs. I like the toning and the tense emotion that it seems to invoke. I like the depth of field you chose. It also adds to the emotion of the image, making the foreground chairs standout from the 'popular' crowd that stares in the distance. You came up with a great entry here, and your score failed to reflect that. This was a 9 for me, and I think that I gave two 10s, five 9s, and 3 8s.

I like the the parked position of the chairs. The shallow DOF works here as well. 7
