Great shot! Amazing how close to the same theme yours and Jennifer's are. Not surprising they both scored well.

Congrats on the ribbon and the great image
I hope you are within the extent of a.e.rules though. Burning is legal as long as it does not create a new feature. If the original shows a bright sky outside your darkening may dangerously approach the borderline.

Feels like a surreal museum shot, the way the window looks like a huge picture frame. Very nice.

Wow. Makes me smile; makes me scared. Really compelling image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautifully done. Great lighting and comp and it tells a story (or it at least implies a story that each viewer can interpet to themselves) Really nice work. One of my top 3 for the challenge.

One of the three best in the challenge. Can't wait until it is over to see how you did it. I am guessing HDR.

This kind of has that Alice in Wonderland feel yet a bit more melancholy. I like it.

I call intentional pathos! I rebel when I am emotionally manipulated. A great scene, but a few of the technicals make this less successful than it could have been. Harsh shadow, underexposure (you could have retained the dark atmosphere while adjusting highlights), some haloing. 6

I love the setting and the concept, however the lighting is way too harsh and hard. Detracts from the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2010 12:26:25 AM
great shot! only criticism is that the editing just needs a little more to really make it a wow shot.
