I like your tunnel idea, it was very creative. Your picture showed good grain. I also like the light coming out of the other side of the tunnel. Congrats on the ribbon! This is a wonderful piece of art.

Congratulations on your ribbon! Great work as usual, the grain really adds impact to this scene, great choice for this challenge!

Splendid - I didn't see all the hubub about you "stuck" but honestly - you HAVE style, so DO NOT let them get you down about it! Think these people would've been as upset with A Adams? Absolutely - and he was stuck in a great way too. You found a niche and I'd stay there. I LOVE YOUR WORK! :) Congrats and well deserved. You are just so inspirational Heida.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2005 06:50:01 AM
Well done!. The grain is a bit "artificial" like it's made in PS. Maybe a high speed film on your next trip? Góð mynd hjá þér!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2005 12:39:23 AM
It's good to see how well you are doing in spite of some "jibajaba" I've seen regarding you supposedly being stuck in just one style. This is an example of just how good you are regardless of what style you decide to use.

Congratulations Heida. I had initally given this photo a 7 in my first pass. But later when I was tweaking my votes, it started to reel me in and I bumped it to a 10. The feeling of divine light in the tunnel, or the insinuation of walking toward the light moved me, but also the way the photo is make up of grain, like its not even a solid structure, but just dots almost. Great Entry.

If ever a challenge was made-to-order, it's this one for you and Joey, and look! Blue & Red! I like that this is NOT the "typical" moody-stormy-landscapey shot that you do so well. One of my high picks. Congrats!

This one gets my only 10 in the challenge, for the feeling of drama in the image. I can just hear the echoing footsteps...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/30/2005 09:55:01 PM

this looks like a winner to me. nice choice for this challenge. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/28/2005 10:25:53 AM
Wonderful high-impact composition. I like everything about it except maybe the grain, which I think might be a little excessive. However, it certainly does give the scene a touch of 'alternate reality'. Also love the fact that the man's hands appear to be in his pockets. Don't know why, it just seems delightfully whimsical in the context of this scene. 8

I like this image..the almost surreal feeling and leading lines are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2005 11:27:31 AM
One of my top favorites in this challenge, the burst of blue at the end of tunnel pulls me into the image, wonderful... 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2005 08:17:24 AM
Wow. This is beautiful. Wish you had pulled him just slightly more off center - it would add tension to the image. Love the colors and the tones. 8 - good luck in the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2005 05:47:12 AM
The grain has added to the depth of this shot. Almost expected some drama if not for the figure who seems like he's leisurely strolling. Still a very nice shot.

Very nice lighting, which is giving good coloration to the photo. This meets the challenge description very well and the grain definitely helps set the mood of this pic. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/24/2005 11:01:03 PM
Well done. Great mood to this image and the grain IS a value added component to help deliver the mood. A very good composition, apropriately breaking the rule of thirds with its symmetry. Wonderful tones, excellent procesing and great title. Good luck.

The idea is good and the centered person seems to work. Ease up on the grain though.
