Amazing photo. Seems like an obvious ribbon to me but I'm guessing the lack of eye contact will befuddle the DPC voters.

I think there's supposed to be logic to my ribbon picking, but I swear that the Posthumous blue ribbon usually goes to the image that demands it.

Fantastic lighting, very emotive. He/she seems so distraught over being trapped. 10

10. An amazing capture to say the least. Even without the title you have conveyed sadness and lost hope. That is what I am getting from the picture. The overwhelming defeat in this picture has been caught. You have done an amazing job.

Wow, this is a very emotional image. Perhaps a little too much contrast. I like how you managed to subtly capture the fencing.
