Definitely the most creative shot in the challenge, congrats on the HM. Still too much blown lights for my taste.

Excellent idea and very nicely executed. (Commenting only.)

Very well orchestrated, OOB idea and execution for a challenge awash with great photos but boring stereotypes. Only fault are those blown highlights...hard to control in Basic Editing I know...bumped to 8

A peaceful equilibrium. Amazing composition and lighting earn an 8 from me and my pick for the red ribbon.

Original. I really like it. A LOT!!

One of my favourites, I really love the contrast of this one!
Also, the fact that you completely burned the shadows and the highlights actually makes it more interesting to me :)
Great job, 10!
