Wow!! A place in the Posthumous Art Gallery. I feel great for that. Thanx ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' posthumous.

Neven thought this will fetch me 6.65 score in a free study. Thanx for the terrific score and lovely comments. Actually, didnt get proper title for this image. Nothing suitable was striking in my mind. I thought to leave it open for the viewer imagination, but ended up giving the title as 'Left alone'. Its my daughter posing for me.

Spooky. Has almost a sci-fi quality to it.

Very effective storytelling. The hint of motion blur in the hands make me think she's shaking them anxiously.

this is like a good Broadway number, exhilirating. I don't think your title captures the feeling.

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: What a masterpiece. Superb. The bold centred girl, the imposing buildings, the blurring of the hands, the oh-so-important choice of POV, the monochrome treatment. It just doesn't get much better than this.

Critical stuff: No!

Overall: Super-beautiful. An all time fav and the second image I've looked at it this FS that has made me feel embarrassed about my own entry. 10 and a fav.

Wonderful juxtaposition and sense of scale. The world is such a wonderful and magical place to a child. 8
