This one keeps dropping, now at a 5.2xx. Most comments said the light behind the boots was distracting. I appreciate ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Pedro's comment "...not sure the exposed backlight adds anything to it..." which sums up what I did "wrong" with this one. I'm wondering why did I put a light back there...??? Still learning... Thanks to everyone who commented.

some interesting elements to this. not sure the exposed backlight adds anything to it, but i like the departure. creative idea, good technical details, and well executed.

really like the shot...but the light coming from behind the boots takes a little away from it for me...just my opinion- good luck!

Nice idea. The strobe behind the boots on the hill really bothers me. Almost washes out the idea.

I think you did a great job setting this up. It looks good and is well lit. But, I don't like the light behind the boots. still a 7 imho.
