Cool shot, Deb! I really like this. The depth and layers of the shot is fun. It sort of reminds me of the Sims game. Characters going about doing their thing.

One has just noticed white splotches on the stucco behind and above the bike's rear wheel, such that one can easily imagine it's a velocipede and those are little puff-puff clouds from a tiny one-lunger of a French engine :-)

Ooh, I just noticed the dude up the ladder is on the phone. Yikes. At least he looks like he's on the phone even if he isn't

One LOVES the not-visible dog and the truncated bike. One LOVES the workman wondering WTF you're shooting, and why. One LOVES that the bucket has no readily-discernible means of support, such that one can easily imagine it is caught in mid-plummet, the whole world going on about its business as the instant of impact looms. One LOVES the mysterious, gooseneck, ET-like shadow that has no visible source.

One LOVES this image :-)

Glad to see this was yours. It was one of my 9's. However, I guessed that ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

Ha, I didn't know this was yours. It scored high from me. But Deb, it's in colour? :)

Beautiful Deb, classic. I never seem to "find" scenes like this. I'm always amazed at your ability to see.

Feels very ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' muur88. I love all the movement and the feeling of imminent collision.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Lovely scene, well captured. I like how everybody is just going about their business - that contributes greatly to the story-telling qualities of the image. The coloration is very nice indeed - it combines with the light to offer up a very relaxed mood.

Critical stuff: I'm not wholly convinced by the overall composition of the various elements.

Overall: I like it well enough though.

Love the energy in this image. Blue reflects the ocean, I wonder about the dog drowning, and how did that guy get a two wheeled paddle boat? Is it me or is the texting painter about to get clobbered by a falling bucket?
