Hey, might as well copy the all-time top-scoring photo ...

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/4/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_106.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/4/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_106.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

AH yes. If memory serves me, the highest rated shot ever. Nice work picking this.

A wider view, and yet you managed to get the same feel and hue from the original.

sorry, not to be rude but it's about as good as the original (but not meaning the score the original got.)

Instantly recognizable, lol! Good emulation but I bet your score won't mimic his.

I was guessing someone would do this. Good homage, still not very interesting :)

You're not going to get the score he did.

A good shot, you achieved to recreate the exact mood. However, DOF and composition are quite different as your lens was too wide.

You'll never unseat the number one scoring photo of all time!! ;-)

Well done, though!

Ironically, this is a better shot than the original, but is sure to do much worse on the score. Kudos for doing this one, however.
