Well done Cory! Now I know why you choose the spot where you were. The low angle and side view gave your DPC audience a feel for not just the performer and her act but the reactions of the crowd behind her. Kate had such a wonderfully expressive face and you captured the 'having fun' aspect very well. Glad to see that a candid street shot did so well.

This image is way too sharp! It appears to have been edited on a 55" monitor and, therefore, displays poorly on my mini 22" widescreen monitor. The lack of interesting characters in the background is also disappointing. Surely you could have captured someone in the crowd also taking pictures, even better if they were shooting with a Nikon ;)

This is one of the values of get togethers. I wouldn't have thought to enter this scene into a challenge or that it would have done so well. I mentioned to you all that morning that I probably wouldn't be taking too many shots because urban areas are places in which I just don't see the possibilities. I'm much more in my element lost in the countryside, wilderness, or desolate beaches.

It's eye opening for me to see a shot from our GTG do so well. I'm sure that I'll remember this whenever I'm in urban areas with a camera.

Great job and congratulations!

This was one of two 10s for me. Really impressive image, a great moment, and something very different. Kudos.

You captured the sense of fun perfectly. Her expression says it all. However, not sure about the B&W.

I simply love this, so fun. Only thing I'd say is that there's perhaps too much noise in the background, maybe a short DOF might have been ideal here. Still, very good!

This image suggests that you are on the right track (and, no, I'm not assuming that the juggler is you, just that you found the fun!) On a side note, you provided some (belated) inspiration for this challenge that I was struggling to express and ran out of time for. Along the same lines as far as the end goal, but an absolutely different type of spirit. Oh well.
