Sistino's and his chickens are way to charming not to win this one for you. Good luck. 10

This image draws me in effortlessly -- I want to know more about the man and the place. Nice b&w conversion, wonderful composition. I think it would be a bit stronger with that trace of sky cropped out, but I like it a lot anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2007 10:23:49 PM
Very cool shot, I really like the b&w and think it really adds to the shot. I do feel that the top of the frame could be cropped to eliminate the blown out sky. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2007 08:31:30 PM
Quite nice, I would like a little more detail showing in the building, maybe a little dodge and burn here and there. I'm new here so I'm not sure that's allowed in basic editing. Nice composition!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2007 02:44:30 PM
Perfect 10!

jjbeguin, perhaps? How do you get such amazing range of tones?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2007 07:17:28 PM
nice editorial

Nice pic, but, is it in a city? Not likely.

I like this shot a lot. My choice for red. 9

One of the few entries that try to meet the challenge - very nice - I love the slightly sheepish pride on the man's face

Incredible detail and character coming through in this. Like it, love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2007 06:10:46 PM
Very cool shot. I love the man and the chickens are great too. I would have appreciated a tad more contrast overall I think. The little door near the man makes me want to step through it so I can see what's on the other side. Well done and fits the challenge well. Back to bump you up to 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the old time feel to this photo, I like that its in b&w, the little door is cool, too. Lots of character, 9.

Pictoresque location. Perhaps I would crop part of the bottom and top of the image.

Great scene, right out of an old book

A lovely subject, conversion could perhaps do with a bit more contrast.
