I almost forgot about this. FWIW, I was one of your 9's. WHee!

I'm just going through the bottom end of the shots and I'm really surprised to find this scoring so badly. I can see from the comments it's because of the manipulation, but still, it's really interesting shot, and whether you like the colours or not the actual photograph (in terms of composition, light etc) is very good.

I'm with others in that it's not entirely to my taste, but I've seen photos / art very like this on peoples walls!

A little over the top on the processing, but it works well. I assume originally an IR?
03/17/2009 07:33:59 PM
Yipers! This is not appealing to me. *sorry* (If I don't tell you... you'll never know about voters, huh?) The strong pink really just overwhelms me. It's artsy... but ... I just can't like it.

Not voting.

Amazing choice of colors. Very Old Master.
03/17/2009 12:08:25 PM
I love the colors here.
03/17/2009 11:57:50 AM
That's very impressionistic I'm sure. I guess one has to really like that style to appreciate it. I can see it's well done but I am not a fan of impressionism myself.
03/17/2009 09:07:45 AM
Surreal, actually. Very nice.
03/17/2009 12:43:08 AM
As an impresssionist photo, this works, but otherwise, I think the processing has taken the photographic nature out of this shot.
03/16/2009 10:59:01 PM
Not sure how I feel about the pink, but I do like what the filter has done to this. Nice. - bumping
03/16/2009 05:37:04 PM
where ever was this...so very pretty...somewhere in the Carolina's? Very nice and DIFFERENT!!!
03/16/2009 03:10:36 PM
Good idea. A bit to much on the coloring for me.
03/16/2009 12:40:28 PM
MMmmmmm - I like this. The surreal monetesque look does it for me. Very well done. :)
03/16/2009 12:15:48 PM
sorry I have to give you just one... it didnt do for me...

good luck though and take care ;D
03/16/2009 11:58:59 AM
Nice mood!
03/16/2009 03:14:10 AM
not my taste but i am sure others will
03/15/2009 11:49:09 PM
does not appeal to me , sorry, just a comment no vote
03/15/2009 09:41:33 PM
Sorry, colors totally blown out
03/15/2009 09:31:02 PM
very unique
03/15/2009 05:34:40 PM
This is just a bit overworked for me...
03/15/2009 10:16:15 AM
Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.
03/15/2009 08:15:37 AM
Although I like the colors in this and the impressionist feel, I would prefer something a little less processed.
03/15/2009 07:07:15 AM
very abstract and interesting - keep it up
03/14/2009 11:35:38 PM
This looks like a painting. The pink is a bit overdone for me, but it's interesting looking.
03/14/2009 11:01:37 PM
Interesting use of colors
03/14/2009 05:47:27 PM
Nice composition but a bit over processed for my taste
03/14/2009 03:44:32 PM
Fun shot. Interesting color choice.
03/14/2009 03:31:25 PM
Striking pink, but tends to overpower the central subject and draw the eye up and left out of the shot. Perhaps there is enough texture in the bridge that it could take a stronger colour and reserve a secondary & more muted or complementary colour for the trees - thereby making the bridge stand out?
03/14/2009 12:00:00 PM
You have to like the color to care for the impression. The limb distracts. Reflections are nice.
03/14/2009 09:11:15 AM
Processing has created a beautiful image here. Well done.
03/13/2009 11:48:38 PM
I love this reimagining. It's like Miles Davis playing the Flintstones Theme. 10
03/13/2009 10:39:16 PM
Perfect titling. The first thing that came to mind was very impressionistic.
03/13/2009 04:06:58 PM
Amazing colors, it definitely looks like a painting.
03/13/2009 02:26:44 PM
I can't believe this but.... I almost like this! ;) The whacky colors are just a bit too much though. Very interesting photo.
03/13/2009 01:56:21 PM
Back to comment: The composition looks good but I don't find the coloration very appealing.
03/13/2009 01:28:03 PM
I like it. I think :)
03/13/2009 11:55:53 AM
the pink is just a bit over the top IMO
03/13/2009 11:02:34 AM
This shot is neat and I think I understand what you're going for here, but all in all its just not working for me. Sorry.
03/13/2009 06:35:15 AM
The unnatural colors are giving this photo a special effect. I like the bridge.
03/12/2009 09:45:59 PM
yikes a little too pushed maybe?
03/12/2009 04:05:42 PM
Very cool coloring, nice impressionism.
03/12/2009 04:04:11 PM
I was initially jarred by the colors, but as i study it I realize how lovely the spring setting is. nice work.
03/12/2009 02:39:23 PM
Remarkable interpretation of a simple landscape.
03/12/2009 02:20:15 PM
Beautiful colors but the post processing really flattens this image, not in a good way...
03/12/2009 01:17:54 PM
That's some crazy hot pink. If it were a little more subtle, I think the photo would be more balanced as a whole.
03/12/2009 12:53:09 PM
Gorgeous colors.
03/12/2009 11:25:58 AM
I like it. It makes you re-examine what you see for context.
03/12/2009 10:52:14 AM
Nice colors.
03/12/2009 10:01:51 AM
Im not liking this kind of coloring or editing but I do like the subject.
03/12/2009 07:43:12 AM
wow, great color and post processing treatment, this belongs on a wall
03/11/2009 10:20:39 PM
03/11/2009 11:37:51 AM
An explosion of pink! I like the impressionistic qualities
03/11/2009 11:33:28 AM
don't really like the colorization in this shot, but it has great composition.
03/11/2009 07:43:31 AM
I once did a pic that had strong color effects and was told that 'DPC folks don't usually go for heavy processing like that'.

Well I don't know about everyone else, but I like it plenty!
03/11/2009 06:55:03 AM
that just hurts. totally overfiltered.
03/11/2009 04:24:19 AM
Really pretty, but the pinks seem to be clipping (blown out).
03/11/2009 01:17:14 AM
Hmmm Really not sure it's doing anything for me, just being honest. I would like to see the original, and then a true B&W conversion.
