strange, contrived and beautiful.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

so whimsical & dark, it takes my breath away. Love the reflection/shadow. And that (recreational?) vehicle in the BG. At this angle, it feels like he's about to slide off the rooftop.

That is some super contrast. Excellent.

Has that uneasy edge about it, I'm sure intentional, an everyday event for a child, but this particular angle you shot this at, marvels me. So glad you didn't stick to the norm, well done ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', '/') + 1) .

This is a new comment series for me, so please bear with me while I find my style!

(Voted earlier)

This is one of my 8s - I like it a good deal. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Despite the slight haloing - there is something compelling about this image. The POV and the dark rendition gives a slightly ominous feel. I like that.

2. Although the child is central, they are also somewhat peripheral to it too - those swirly logs and the brooding caravan draw the eye and get us to inspect your post-processing handiwork.

3. I really like all of the lines too - the edges of the logs, the slide, the telegraph pole and wires - they seem to break the image up like some mosaic.

4. The framing of the child through the hand rails is particularly effective and makes me think of a puzzle where this was the last piece to be dropped into place.

Overall, tons of mood here. I like that.
