definately looks untouched by man. The angle and framing/cropping is nice, and the lighting looks to be good as well. The focus looks a bit soft to me, but that could just be a result of all the wetness. Overall a nice shot for the challenge. Good luck in the challenge.

I can see what I'm supposed to see, but only with a bit of work. That's nice in that it makes the most of the contemplative, serene nature of the surroundings, but I think the marriage of title and image doesn't quite work. More visual emphasis on the little plant would have made the title more direct. Placing it in an area where third lines intersect may have worked to draw more attention to it, or perhaps desaturating the photo slightly and boosting the red channel? Good work though.

There, I just tried my own suggestions: //lisa3d.org/images/photos/dpc/stranded2.jpg

challenge met. nice focus, nice "splash of color" in the middle. i just wish there was something more ... maybe crop closer to the green stuff. technically it's a good photo, interest-wise it doesn't draw me in too much, sorry.

I might have featured the "stranded" little guy a little more prominently, and perhaps bring the background into sharper focus.

Has the makings of a really great shot. The focus on the plant and leaves (?) makes it tough to see just what we are looking at. DPz

Nice shot! I like the little bit of life showing up in the hardest places. 8 Swash

Pretty rocks and water. Would of worked in the motion challenge also. I think the bottom could of been cropped off by 3/4 and the levels bumped up a bit. Nice shot.

The green mossy looking area on the rock in the dead center seems to be the focus of this picture, but my eye isn't drawn to that at all. Instead I find myself looking at the slightly fuzzy background. if the background were blurred more I think it would have turned out better.

For me the whole shot needed to be in focus.
