My wife and dog but they weren't complicit in this photo. Nic didn't know that I had taken it.

Wow, I didn't expect the Blue with this score. Thanks.

Getting the Blue and PH Blue in the same challenge has been a long-held aspiration for me. Very pleased!

Thanks all, and thanks Don.

late to the comment table, but congrats. I admire this image for the texture of the subject, as well as the subtlety of addition of human and animal interest.

Fantastic, an image made to win. In its own concept, it's almost too perfect, everything is perfectly cut, nothing out of place. I almost want to find a flaw. But I'm repeatedly drawn to that path in the distance, reminding me of DaVinci. Fabulous, congrats on the double blue!


Goodness. Thank you!

My number one in the challenge. I love the textures on the glass, the abstract people far away, and the person with the dog (my favorite breed). This picture is spectacular IMHO.

This is for you:

I like this. So much to figure out.

Close study of time-textured glass and peeling paint well worth considered attention. The slice of context to the right is also very appealing. The woman, the bulldog, the up-sloping, curving walk with a figure in the distance. Really well done.

There are two subjects here. I'm drawn to the brightest element- the bulldog. Try a crop or a different shooting angle. Nice glass.

The dirty, etched glass adds great visual interest, also like the use of B&W here.

Really cool photo - I like that I just want to take in all the different things happening in the photo.
