Not extremely inspired for this one, it is essentially made out of my recent Bretagne photo trip's leftovers.

I agree with the comments saying it is too crowded, especially in this small format. Lesson learned. Allowing bigger image size on DPC would be very interesting though.

I would agree. Some amazing ideas that seem to be somewhat overly overlapped ;) Great image nonetheless - we have come to expect perfection from you ! - not exactly easy to live up to your own reputation ;)

Congrats! Yup. Too crowded for my tastes, seems overdone this way.

However, once you mentioned a larger version, I could see how it would actually work quite well larger! I do wish we had larger landscape options. :)

LOL - you'll never please everyone. :) Congrats on 4th, although I'm guessing you may be in for some front page withdrawals eventually. Thenk again, that probably won't happen. :)

You put me often in this dilemma of evaluationg an image that it so well done, imaginative , etc in a context in which it does not belong exactly.
I catch myself often using a picture as base for digital art and refrain for using it in a challenge that is not expert editing.
Just my opinion here. I might be too much of a purist.
Congratulation for getting so quickly to this point, since you said that photography is quite a new hobby for you. Or is it already a profession?


Thanks.
No it's not a profession, and probably won't be. I want to remain absolutely free in my choices: I have no interest in fulfilling some buyer's expectations or vision.

I don't know how you make these wonderful shots, but this is awesome!

That's pretty out there. Nice editing. The ghosts aren't as strong as the rest of the edit. Btw, I didn't realize ghosts cast shadows.

Beautiful. I love the expansive nature of this image, and the rocks, lighthouse, tightrope walker, and ocean are all terrific. I find all the ghost images a bit too blue, too solid, and too similar. Great vision though.
