Did not vote but I do like it a lot to include the composition, tones and the overall feeling.

This was one of my real favourites in the November free study. Don't understand the score at all. I gave it a 9, so find it hard to see how it ended where it did.

Wonderful work. Such evocation of the Polaroid. the imbalance of the composition creates a vertigo in which we think this boy will fall into the sea. 9

I don't really know why but I really love this picture! Maybe it's the aged feel from the post-processing... or the ambiguity of the model's gender... or how seemingly shy s/he is... 10

Those cross-processed tones are just perfect here. I hope you share your processing secrets (if only with me!). Bump to an eight.

This is amazing. Love the composition and washed out lighting and colour. Very 70s feel. Fantastic. In my top ten of the challenge. 9.

A very blasé moodiness to this photo...the posture has a lot to do with that, but the tones really add to that feeling! Well done!

I do like this, but I can't put my finger on why. Nicely captured and presented. Very strong focus.

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 really love the coloration here - I have a shot in my head that needs to be coloured this way; I hope you might share your colouring workflow. This is a fine and moody scene but your PP is so well matched that it elevates the scene to a whole new level. The composition is pretty fabulous too.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all.

Overall: A great image that is made special by the PP.

Is it "in" to have a polaroid feel on photos? 2nd one I've seen on 27 images. It's a darned fine photo anyway thoug, and the polaroid effect suits it very well!
