I almost submit this one to the effects of water challenge, but I imagine that the ice and humid ground would call for DNMC votes and I have other shot that I liked a lot too, ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1679/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1046296.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1679/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1046296.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.

I wish it would have done better in the score so to have it in my front page, but I think is ok given that is a free study.

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented, appreciate the time devoted to it.

This idea does inspire in terms of its concept. Unfortunately this particular image does not project the idea to me in an exciting or interesting way.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: As a lapsed geologist, I really enjoy this image, the illusion of a fossil within strata is highly effective - made more so by your choice of aspect ratio. The communication of texture is excellent and this is emphasised by the lack of colour.

Critical stuff: I suppose it lacks a bit of depth but that's really part of its charm.

Overall: Very well constructed.
