Thanks for all your comments. The only post processing I did on this, actually, was a crop and auto-levels - it was just a grey day.

makes me want to know more about who they are and what's their story. water/rock gived this a great monchromatic feel, the play of three and three adds interest.

Another picture in the Challenge that carries great emotional impact. Great job and I wouldn’t change a thing. Perfect!

Interesting and original shot. The composition is well done and the selective desaturation is effective at emphasizing the human element in contrast with nature. Nice work.

This shot is one of my favorite of the bunch. It is sexy, raw, dramatic.... It leaves me with so many questions. Just what a photo should do!! You nailed the angle. Att first I was not sure I liked the people walking up to the fall in the shot but the more I look at it the more I think they are important to the mood. Good job

Went back to revisit this photo again. Just had to raise the score again. It just speaks to me.

I just thought this was such a beautiful group photo. The skin tones are complimented by the black/grey background. Lovely.

Lovely 10

Wonderful composition and nice steely grey tones which add a moodiness to the shot.

Brilliant! Great angle and crisp focus. Very well executed, well done!
07/01/2004 04:30:13 PM
very nice photo....I like the feeling it creates......love the water falling too
07/01/2004 02:48:42 PM
Fabulous. Love the mood you captured so well. So many things make this work: the outstretched arms; the shafts of falling water; the overall darkness, yet full range of tones; the diagonal division of the frame; the perfect arrangement of people leading the eye to the foreground. Congrats!
