Nice to see you entered what you liked, even though you expected it to end up in mediocre-land. It got a 7 from me, however. Damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead!

Shallow DOF is other worldly ... almost like I'm being chased and running for my life. Interesting.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: I always like to see Lensbaby images in the FS. I like the way the light illuminates the steps and the sense of movement you have captured.

Critical stuff: If I'm honest, I'm not sure there's enough intrinsic interest in the scene for it to be a compelling image.

Overall: Quite nicely done but it isn't an image that appeals to me.

I am going to be very curious to find out how this was done...I like it...and what lens was used...I am hoping you will share your PP notes

This has a Mysterious and, for some reason, damp feel!? : ) Nice work with the LB : )
