Didn't get a chance to go out and shoot for this challenge. This is one of the shots I took for tilted (but it didn't look right tilted, LOL).

I can't wait to see the vote spread on this one. According to the commenters, you either love it or hate it. To those who see it as oversharpened, I wonder what type of monitor you're using. This was saved at 50% due to the amount of detail and doesn't look sharp at all on my monitor.

To me this image is February. The post holiday depression sets in. Nothing in this month to look forward to. It's a blue, cold, depressingly long short month. Full of deep shadows, weak light, the chaos of life. There's only one way to go in this month, forward, towards the gates of March and the long awaited spring.

Too darn cheerful to be February. :-) I do like it, though!

Cool shadows ... I'm surprised this one didn't do better. There's a lot of chaotic depth to this image.

interesting and individual style. (my eyes tend to jump around the picture. Maybe cropping some off the left hand side would direct the viewers eyes back toward the path. Just a thought.) good luck

Wow... this image is crazy. It's like... watching someone get electrocuted. Good job... but I probably wouldn't want it in my calendar...

Wow! I love this photograph. I love the B&W. I would have loved to see it in color as well.

Too busy a picture. Shadows, trees everything is too cluttered. May be color version would have been little better to differentiate objeccts. One of my low score, sorry.

very glaring and over sharpened on my monitor. would have been a nicer touch to go soft IMO, espec the way the shadow "travels" the path

It almost looks messy to me due to all the detail... maybe the mid-tone contrast has been boosted a little too much. Otherwise a good scene.

Beautiful. What music!

over sharpened, like the B&W of the shot but it looks to "wiry" and processed

Interesting. This could have gone into the Puzzle Challenge. I give you an 8.

I really like the effect you have achieved here. I would appreciate it very much if you would send me a private message detailing how you achieved this effect. I hope you don't mind. I would like to experiment some with this style myself. I have already voted for this image so you sending me a PM won't alter the score I gave you. I gave this image a 9 by the way.

I like the chaos in this.

I love this.
I really hope this grabs a ribbon.

A new personal Favorite for me.
WAY TO GO my friend!

I don't think the processing works for this image, it makes it look like an abstract with all the shadows. Everything appears to be the same color and its not exactly a black and white image either.
