I'm not sure how well this image will be received but I like it a lot - I particularly like the ominous looking figure in the arched window.

I'm really glad I submitted this image and not another - I really love it and would have been a bit upset by the hammering it is currently getting in the voting. However, since it has been published on 1x.com (6 favourites so far), I feel much more relaxed about it not doing so well here. I only wish I had enough published there to be so relaxed every month!

this is truly amazing .. i love the colouring .. that blood red with the dark foreboding black .. there's so much going on here .. i keep looking and finding more .. i especially like this because its not clear exactly what's going on .. its wotever i want it to be ..
5.5 .. that's dpc .. !! .. art/depth/something a bit different or out'v the box can often go unappreciated .. :)

This is a cool image, and underrated. The underrating is partially my own fault though, I see that I rated this a 5, and had I given this photo the time it deserved during voting, I would have noticed more of the elements in the shot. Congrats on the 1x favs :)

This deserves a post-challenge comment. I entered this FS myself, but somehow wasn't able to vote. If I had vote, you would've gotten good score from me. There's so much going on in this photo; action, light, insane colors, mystery, innocence of child playing (or whatever he does) in the water; I don't even figure out where the heck the water is coming from! Is it rain, a fountain, what? Interesting! And the figure in the window you mentioned creeps me out; tit looks like a deleted scene from Twin Peeks. You must be satisfied with your camera for pulling that photo out of at ISO 6400! And it doesn't surprise me a bit that it has been published on 1x; this is a true definiton on what you can achieve with one exposure. Good thing you posted that thread you did so we all could see this photo.

Fun! Is there someone peeking out from the window too? Spooky and interesting. Love how the boy is highlighted from below.

Looks good at 1x, looks good here. I like the way that you balanced fun with exhaustion. A long day of hard play comes to a tiring end. A great summertime moment. I hope it does well for you.

I love the high contrast and bits of reddish pink. Different and nice.
