Wow, great voters score and lots of favs, a good result I would say despite the actual score. It was well appreciated

I had to come back to this. I feel it probably didn't get proper respect during the challenge because it is a tougher image to crack, one that you have to look at and let seep it, not click through quickly. Even with the fine toothed comb of a jury vote there probably wasn't enough time.

I get the feeling of a dark mushroom Samurai riding public transit, with white silk scarf and the maddening feeling that I can almost focus on what is in my peripheral vision, but it eludes me. All this wrapped up in the Sound of Silence lyric- which is the happiest sad song ever. It also made me think, photography takes a slice of time and transforms it visually, but it also forges a truly necessary silence.

There's nothing there, yet my eye enjoys roving around this image looking for something. Motion blur might've been used to create this, but it's not what I'm thinking about when I look at it. I'm just enjoying the line, shape, & tone of this interesting abstract. Good work.

Been coming back now several times to watch this work.
I just can't figure out what I'm looking at. At first I thought a dog. Nah, not a dog. Then I thought a hand waving (elbow supported on the table, hand above the elbow and flat instead of up)... Nah, don't think so either.
At the right: a hand holding glasses? Man, this is one of images in which the viewer can release his/her own fantasy. Just love it.
