One thing I leared: Ben's images are not BW, but more like duotoned. In trying to emulate his style, I spent a lot of time studying his images very closely. The more time I spent looking, the more I found to admire. Definitely worth it.

This was my particular inspiration.

A less ambiguous shot of this interesting sculpture. It's made of concrete & the head is hollow so you can put a plant in there for the hair.

The motion blur and sense of whimsy captured my heart. I couldn't wait to give it a 10 (only three others?...bah!) Well done!

I am not competent enough to comment or compare entries to Ben's style so I am not going to try.
Amazing sense of movement and intense emotion that allows me to make up a story that suits my idea of what this photo is about .. funny, what comes to mind is a pilot in a war .. maybe WWII - about to eject ... or praying for a miracle to help land a damaged plane .. fantastic tonal qualities..this shot should so very well and it is my hope it does. I will certainly do my best to ensure a high score for you.

Fantastic interpretation, really kick starts the imagination, daydreaming about these ancient people. Too unique to languish without some modest recognition.

I thank you with a Sterling Sturgeon

this is surreal... very cool out of this world figure seems almost built of clay - the maleable kind I imagine. Terrific!

Like many of Ben's images, this will be hard to forget. Good combination of blur and strong visual elements.

My god, this is stunning. Primal, Jung baiting stuff. In my top favourite five of the challenge. 10 - This is my second favourite. Keep coming back to it. Amazing. I'm bumping you up to 11 as well.

A very intriguing image, and an interesting interpretation of Ben's style. I love the movement, although I miss the delicacy of his pp'ing.

Funny how a little bit of camera movement brings wicked life to an ordinary scene. Ben caught on to this from the get go.
