Thank you all for the wonderful comments!!! I shot quite a lot for this challenge and am really glad I actually came up with one that people liked.
I'm kind of flabbergasted, actually.

This was my second choice Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_955216.jpg in case anybody's interested. There are some others in the outtake thread.

Beautiful! Congrats on the top 5 finish! (I think the commenters scores said it more accurately :)) I'm glad that you entered the one that you did. It gives those of us who favorited it something to look at again and again. :)

Top 5! Yay! I actually meant to come back and comment on this during the challenge but didn't get the chance. This looks like a really cool place. I thought it was so unusual that they all seemed to have the same chairs and was wondering if it was a pool club or some such thing, but I see from the location it's not.

It looks so retro, like it was taken a 100 years ago. Great

I believe this deserved higher things, it was my favorite in the challenge and has a true bresson feel to it, its just so harmonious.

Hey Penny,

I really liked this shot a lot- one of my top picks. Guess I should have looked closer though as I really thought this was one of the parks in London where you rent similar chairs by the hour.
Congrats on a fine finish!

Fantastic rendition, apart from mobile man and the fashion, it could be an original 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it -- feel like it needs a little something else though -- an unruly child, a funny hat.

Really like the feel to this. Very nostalgic. In my top three of the challenge. 9.

Those glasses are a blast from the past, this is very close to HCB's work, top 5.

I could spend hours looking at this, so much going on, so many stories to tell. A moment was captured here, one of city life that could never be duplicated. Lovely work.

Great environmental scene. Feels like a timewarp. Great photo.

Nice find and well composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the collection of people is quite good - the use of the little chairs a great touch - but I wish the folks were more 'in the scene' - front and center - rather than a quick casual glance

this is really a "Henri Cartier-Bresson"-feeling-image! For me it's one of the best in challenge. Well done!

I love this! My favorite in the challenge!

superb! looks like a 1960s shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2011 02:42:20 PM
excellent composition, and the high contrast works very well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/27/2011 11:02:35 PM
Love this one! Seems more like a Bresson photograph than a DPC photograph which makes it GREAT! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Now THIS is a wonderful "in the style of" or homage to Monsieur Cartier-Bresson. A simple moment in time. Busy. But oh so serene when one joins in with the foremost subject, who in her mind, appears to be all alone there in her chair, soaking up the rays, the grass, the air - enjoying the silence, though it probably isn't silent... So serene. But there are other stories, too. Where do the chairs come from? Are they first come first served? Do people bring their own? What's to the left, the direction several of the others are looking to? And all done in a very classic feeling rich B&W.

I think this image has all the Bresson qualities. Rhythm and movement with the crowd of people, great B&W tones and a couple sets of female legs, (which I think Bresson may have been a bit of a peeping Tom with the leg shots I have seen of his). I am no afficionado so I am looking at this wondering if I am viewing an actual Bresson image.

Super retro feel; great warmth in a black and white; this is destined for greatness.

The top of the bunch for me, i sincerely hope this wins, a photograph to be proud of especially with the editing rules.
