I was, to say the least very disappointed in the scoring and also the entry. However I believe in learning from the experience. I took the positive suggestions from the commenterís and did more post processing to the image.

Entry image
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/536/thumb/385347.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/536/thumb/385347.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

What is your comment regarding the new post processed image.

Thanks everyone for you comments.

It´s better than the one you submitted but I still think you would have gotten a below 5 score with the new edit. Honestly, I think it´s your choice of subject in a challenge like this. Think of it this way, it´s a challenge for your best shot of the month and shots like this just dissapear, you need to ask yourself, would you personally be blown away by seeing this shot by another person.

Anyway, you are on the right track with the editing, just try to capture a more interesting subject for the next free study and you should do better.

Eyes are brought to the subject without the clutter, so the post-processed images works a lot better. The main thing, I myself need to look out for is what is in the background or around the subject before I take the shot. Sometimes things can be moved before shooting and sometimes it can't, so post-processing comes in really handy.

My only comment would be to deepen the contrast, but I'm someone who really likes deep contrast. Either that or play with the levels so that the blacks go blacker and the white stands out. I do like the new crop though, it's an improvement.
