Nicely found subject and scene, the grass at the base really accentuates the subject. I gave it a 6 and was surprised it did not place higher. Colors and sharpness are spot on, as usual.

No Topaz, just a crazy lot of work with adjustments as noted to boost local area contrast.

Highly underrated image. This is at least a 6.5. Looks like a touch of TOPAZ may have been applied!

Great colors and great details in the stairs falling off and the rust.

It's an ok shot, it's a little bright and I think that your focus should have been on one car or other to where it's not so busy. JMO!

From a technical standpoint, this is a terrific effort - crisp, sharp with everything detail well controlled and captured. From an artistic standpoint it appears to be slightly over saturated, but isn't. A worthy entry into the challenge and directly related to the challenge subject. A good effort and if the saturation was turned down just a little, it would have been near perfect. The author might want to experiment with this image a little by giving it a black and white conversion and playing with curves or tone mapping to give it a different look for entry into print competitions.

This is a great example of interesting clutter. Lots to look at, always finding something new that draws your eye, and lots of color. 9

good color, but I think this is a better background than a subject.
