This is a really nice photo, 6.6 in average is underrated!

Well shut my mouth! I was definitely focused on a different aspect of your style, and gave it a 6. It definitely tells a story - just isn't clear what story it tells. Gave me the creeps. Not sure if the man is looking over his shoulder concerned about something that might hurt the girl, or to be sure no one is watching him...
Thanks for entering, and thanks for the great images you entered earlier.

So, Im visiting Dons posthumous ribbon page and I notice this image again (I voted all the photos).
My average vote was in the very low 5s, 2 of the ribbon winners received sub 5 scores from me and one a 6, Ironically this was my highest score a 9, hmmm. I guess you are a good you.

Also have to take into account the challenge is about what people thought your style used to be and this is what your style now is.

In Isaac Asimov's story The Immortal Bard, William Shakespeare is brought forward in time to take a college course on whis own plays, which (of course) he flunks.

Considering the results of the Ansel Adams challenge, it seems in the top 10-15 is a "typical" finish ...

As I was scrolling through the top results, this bright bit hit me and my first reaction also was that it was the least heida-like so far ...my second that at least someone realized that a limited palette didn't equal "dark" ... ;-)

Congratulations!

FWIW, my mom knew Charlie Chaplin ...

This was my only 10. Completely brill. Would have been a kick if you had gotten the blue in your own challenge. But 10th is nothing to sneeze at. You were out-heida'd by others. :oD

oh man what a brilliant choice of DOF...

Tee hee. . .how funny that you got 10th place in your own challenge :) Just shows your work is fabulous no matter WHAT style you go with :)

09/16/2009 01:29:04 PM
Fantastic. I'm very pleased that i voted my one 10 on this and it was my choice for the blue. Of course, i wish i'd got round to making comments on the challenge! Wonderful photograph!

Wow, can't believe this didn't win. Definitely better than most of the entries above you.

First thank to DPC who brought up to our attention your portfolio, it is one of the gems in here. I thought to PM you letting you know about it, but I knew for sure you'll get to know.
I was wondering if you just gunna set back relax watching DPC compete, or you'd dare to join, glad you did :)

Now a question, how do you feel knowing there are 9 people who can steel your photography identity without any one noticing lol :)

It was fun, it was a pleasure,
one last thing " Don't disappear again " :)

I thought i had left a comment on this during voting... i had this pegged as the best one that fits your "style" but somehow it is different from all your other photos. Great great photo, inspiring as always.

in less DPC correct terms: good job fucker

Charles Chaplin once came in 3rd in a Charles Chaplin look-a-like competition.

Hehe, finnst það alger snilld að þú hafir rumpast til að taka þátt :P Töff mynd og flottur fókus, minnir mig á einhverja auglýsingaherferð þar sem eitt módel var í forgrunni úr fókus, held það hafi verið fyrir Diesel eða einhvern álíka.

Congratulations Heida! This had me scratching my head though, I didn't see it as your style at all, lol!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 02:15:33 AM
No no no - this is nothing like Heida's work. Did you even study for this challenge?? ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 01:24:01 AM
You placed one spot better in your challenge than Ansel Adams did in his

I do love this shot, your use of the edges of the frame is lovely.

Strong photo! Glad to see you back.

Perfect! I didn't think you'd participate in your own challenge - very glad you did!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 12:30:03 AM
How could you place 10th in your own challenge? Great stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 12:25:19 AM
The story lines that run through the head range from sublime to scary.....great set-up. As someone else said, it would've been criminal if you hadn't made the top ten. You must be really rapped with the entries and you should be soooo proud of the style you have created.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 12:23:21 AM
Heida by Heida! How do you feel?
Congratulations on your top 10!! As vlado properly noted it would be surreal anything position higher than that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/16/2009 12:23:04 AM
Ah I am good - this was my choice for blue or red! Had no idea it was yours though - had a thought it was DrAchoo...nevertheless fantastic!

I'm glad you made the top 10 of this challenge... anything less would have been criminal.

This was one of my favourites in the challenge... thought it was worthy of a ribbon or an HM at least... but I guess one can never predict what the DPC voters will do from one challenge to the next. Well done, and it's great to see you here again.

dang it I almost gave this my blue. I could have shown up the dpc voters even more than I already did

I gave you a 10. How did that happen?

OMG, my foot is in my mouth! I'm glad I gave you a 9 during voting!

Wow. What a breathtaking and unusual image. And yes, a story is conveyed, however Surreally. I give this a Posthumous Yellow Ribbon.

This is my favorite of the challenge. I love the story, the colors, and something about the man out of focus is so intriguing. Beautiful photo. 10

09/15/2009 01:00:53 AM
Very interesting pic...1000 words and more...scary or even joy. This is very well thought out. Like this very much
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/14/2009 01:08:08 AM
You've captured the essence here of Heida but I think what is hurting this shot is the shallow depth of field on the foreground subject. I believe having chosen to keep him in focus would have helped create an even more dramatic effect. Exposure is great and the composition of the two is fantastic. I really like the Sun beaming through the trees and the back lit forest is amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2009 02:29:34 AM
This is one of my favourites for this challenge. Although traditionally awkward with the foreground figure out of focus, it does the job of leaving him something of a dark mystery and pulls the eye down the road to the child. The story that's unfolding goes far beyond the image and off the page. What I find unusual is the fact that he's looking away from her, and off to the left, behind him...so carrying the story further. The leading path ties it all together. Beautiful processing on the woodland too - wonderful light. Good Luck!

This is such a well composed shot. You've done a marvelous job of leading the viewer's eye through your shot.

GREAT idea, however, since the pink girl is so far away from, my attention goes to the mysterious man. Bringing the girl closer would make her more visible. The man is to much interesting and visible... Great photo nevertheless. 7, not 8, 9 or 10 because of the things I said. I get a very good and strong Heida fairytale out of this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 09:37:35 AM
Very, very cool. Evockes the scenery of a dream. Very well executed. Beautiful foggy lighting. My pick for #1.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2009 02:15:03 AM
Great image!! Incredible use of natural light. If it wasn't because it looks very summery (unlike Iceland) I'd say this is a true Heida.
