A personal favourite, but I don't think it will score particularly well.

Post challenge: Really pleased how this did in the challenge as it is a bit off the beaten track for DPC. No 1,2 or 3 votes and a posthumous red ribbon to go with a red ribbon in the Photojournalism challenge - it's been a good week! Thanks to everyone for the votes and the great comments.

The reason this probably didnt do as well as it should of is because of the restrictions on size on challenge pictures - I bet blown up to fullsize this looks phenomenal.. one of my favorites in the challenge.

Amazing power and grace. The elongated aspect ratio serves this very well.

This reminds me of a print I might find in an old encyclopedia. Almost looks like a lithograph or etching. Beautifully done.

Wonderful image. Great clarity. Curious about the location.

A wonderful surrealist image. I almost wish it was cropped a bit because the immensely soaring ceiling really removes me from the main subjects. Also, I'm sure this is due to low light conditions, it's a rather noisy image. But it's truly wonderful.

This is a very beautiful image. The boldness of the aspect ratio works perfectly.

Nice, this looks like a century-old sketch. I like how the ballerina's posture complements the tall vertical columns. 8
