This shot was not in any way going to be entered, after spending a while with Luke and his guinea pigs, even 7 born on the week of the challenge, I looked at the shots and thought they were just not me. So once again I convinced Luke to get on the roof and do a shoot. This was a reject shot, of him walking off as he had enough and was feeling rather off balance.
I loved the light, as it was towards sunset, it had a nice feel to it, so I went for it.
Rather surprised it did so well, thought maybe a mid 5 shot, so lesson is never reject the rejected.

Oh I have 4 faves now...wow

Anita, I love the direction your shots have been taking. It is quite apparent that you have been emotionally inspired. This is great and love the toning. Congrats on a great finish!

Ha for the last comment. Good that the majority of voters clearly disagreed.

This would have been a great shot without the added photoshop glow or dreamy look

yes, cinematic is a good word to describe this shot. The vignetting is a nice stylish choice. People have mentioned the obscurity here, the dark faces, etc. but I feel that adds to the mood. Its a good, creative image.

Wow. This is awesome. Perfect light, beautiful composition, and wonderfully moody processing. If I were to question one thing, I might have toned down the contrast on the back pocket. But, what do I know? Still, this is my favorite of the challenge.

Nice PP, not sure about the border here, pretty dramatic nonetheless.

Part of me likes the moodiness of this shot but part of me doesn't like the fact that both the boy and dog's faces are in darkness; I find it hard to connect the affection here when I can't see any expressions. I also don't think the vignette is needed since you have the thick black border. Nice silhouettes though and it held my attention regardless of my reservation.
