I wish I had your talent when I were your age, sadly I was playing Football(soccer) instead.

Hey Nicky, this is pretty cool. I'll give you $0.33 for it, ok? Haha ... all right, you win; a dollar.

Seriously, you have what many of your 'betters' from that stupid forum thread don't, and I do not mean youth. You have exceptional talent, judgement and good taste. I'll expect to see your name on many things outside of DPC in the future.

You've got an eye for photography Nicky. Keep it up. It's refreshing to see such a diverse body of work coming from you. I trust your mentors are very proud too. Well done.

Fog, anywhere, is supremely photogenic.

This is a very poignant and eloquent image which speaks volumes without words. I like how the light rays from outside paint & illuminate the trees, but the photographer has given up and is moving on with his tripod. "Nothing to see here, go home" - and the ever omnipresent dark bird, in silhouette, flies into frame, subtly chasing him. I do love this - even the sepia reminds me of yesterday more than today. SOPA passing would be a future to be feared. Well done!

I agree. And I'd likely print this out in a massive tapestry and roll around in it I love it so much, except for that border. Different tastes. Cool image though.

Nicely done. This image fits the theme well.

That is awesome!!!!! I love the invisible diagonal line connecting the guy and the bird. Totally symbolic. My favorite.

an apocalyptic, mysterious, supernatural romp complete with big black birds and black death-like figures. A great play on the chicken littles of the world, or a clear view into the future?

Title aside, I am trying to understand how this depicts a consequence of SOPA.
