Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

Jeez Louis, what the hell happened with this score. I gave you a 7 on this. You are the queen of spooky.

I think that the image is good but the post production is terrible. 4

i'm not sure about the solarization of the image. i really would like to see the original color saturated or black and white or sepia...the effect here takes away too much from the image.

I like the effort, but the end result is not thrilling me. Seems forced and not the right look for this image. I hope that makes some sense. I think this is going to be one that will not have a lot of middle ground, voters will either really like it or won't.

i really like the post-processing on this one. it really makes the child's face stand out and is very appealing.

Good try and very intersting concept... it's a little bit too overdone for me though. The image has lost most of it's contrast - nothing's really black or really white. But VERY neat idea!

I like your artistic vision with this shot!

I can't say I'm fond of the editing here.

love the PP here; think it fits the image well. I love her face

I think the post processing has removed most contrast in this shot and there is little in the composition that says contrast. I don't get the point of the artificial colouring around the face hair and window frame.

Very cool.

This shot has alot of potential, but the yellow ruined it. A simple black and whitewould have done perfectly here. Sorry
