I was a little disappointed about "Poke" seemingly getting very little positive or negative response, along with a mediocre score. Then I looked at the results and realized I was in some damn good company down there in the below-5 range :)

Anyway, I had taken a similar photo last week that I considered submitting, that addressed some of the comments I got (smoother background, brighter colors). It's here (at the bottom of the page) along with some city life outtakes. They say hindsight is 20/20, but I'm still not convinced that I like it better. I really liked the texture of the wall in the original photo...it's not wallpaper, it's actually just really thick paint and a crack in the wall. The muted colors really seemed to be more indicative of rain and gloominess, and it is an umbrella after all. But then again, I'm probably just not a bright color kind of gal.

So just out of curiosity, which do you guys like better?

I liked poke1, the muted colors told a stroger story. On a side note, the other images you posted on that page were amazing, your a very talented photographer.

kimbly, thanks for the second look! i was one of those that questioned the muted colors of yours---mostly out of pure curiosity. now that i have seen the brighter one, i definitely like the first one better! By the way, i gave you an 8 for that--I can't believe you didn't place higher. It really was a great pic.
