This was a last minute entry. I took the shot Sunday evening just before Aidan went to bed. I had not planned on entering but the lines in the road caught my attention. My desire was to end up with an image with an editing style influenced by both Goodman and Xianart (I so love both of their work). I am very pleased with the outcome of this image. It opened with a 5.3 just after rollover and is now over 6.8 on Sunday evening. Would love to see this place in the top 10. I never expected it to score this well. Odds are I will wake up just after rollover to see how it did.

I've sent a secret email to his kids - they're now gonna model for me - exclusively! I've promised them delicious German black forest gateaux ;-)

Love a photo that so perfectly suits the challenge, yet stands so solidly on its own as well. Excellent job seeing and executing this simple yet impactfull shot.

Terrific! Minor quibble: I would like to have seen the line ahead of him directly over his head versus to the left. But this a great idea and well captured and processed.

The next day: On second thought, I like it just the way it is. A nine for you.

I take it no one ever told him "step on a crack and you'll break your Momma's back"

I like the urban feel you've obtained with the muted tones and the vignetting at the corners. Composition is balanced with the boy being in the top third. The title ties it all together. Great job!

Very good. Finally, something more than just a "line". We can ALL identify with this. Should bring a smile to every face. Well done. Gotta go high -

A simple single line, but with a dash of poetry. Very nice.
