I think I gave this one of the highest scores during voting, but you didn't do so great with votes. Go figure. My take on this is that the shot is very compelling. It is invocative, imo, of the first picture ever taken (in 1827) by Nicephore Niepce titled View from the Study Window. Also it is reminiscent of work by Man Ray, Lisette Model's Running Legs, and Gordon Parks' The Bridge. But I notice that DPC voting doesn't always tend toward the truly aesthetic and, instead, targets the "Wow Factor". The two aren't always in sync.

Your portfolio has some great shots, too. The Moon and the Mountain, Dunes in Black and White, and Summer Storm Passing Over Mt. Whitney, all obviously influenced by Ansel are also quite good. Recognition from the group came with those though. Nice.

I also love Mud Patterns. Your work is tres cool.

Elsewhere, what's up with the comments referencing "another ribbon", "a gallery and a ribbon", and "on a roll". These guys are friends, right? Being new here, I'm trying to get a handle on the scene.

Sometimes the simplest of images can have the biggest impact. This is a joy to behold.

I still can't believe that after weeks still some people are under the influence from the posthumous challenge :D. I must admit I am too ;-) so I'm giving this photo a higher score

I like the shapes and the texture. High creativity scores. Does it fit the challenge? Probably depends on how the viewer looks at it. It does seem to draw you into the "V" so we do seem to be looking into something.
