i loved this image ..
everything about it ..
i gave you an 8 btw ..
and i totally thought it satisfied the challenge ..

re your comment in our pm ..
what is a 'better' image than another when its up to the vagaries of the voters .. well .. its not only personal opinions, but there's the feeling that a lot of images get voted down because its a its a conflict of interest .. also because there are less ppl voting these days .. the low voters dont get balanced out by the ppl who are voting what a photo is 'worth' .
having said that ... its such a grey area .. art .. and what appeals to one may not appeal to another .
and then there are ppl who vote with a very strict idea of how a photo should look .

take the arguments over extended .. many feel that the more you stray from an original photo you are leaving the realms of photography .. the thing is they were altering photos way back in the darkroom ..
and as soon as you start editing you are changing a photo .. at what point does it become not a photo but an altered version of itself ...
ppl do heaps of editing to photos on this site .. landscapes that have changed dramatically from the original photo .. colour, contrast, hdr etc etc .. but that isnt seen as a problem to the ppl who say you cant then add another photo and create something out of your imagination because it is not a photo anymore ..
i see extended as a wonderful opportunity to create something more than your photo .. an opportunity to use your imagination .. to tap into your creativity ..

and i personally see photography as just another artform .. either straight from the camera .. edited to give it more oomph .. or used as a basis to create something else entirely ..
also i love the evolution of photography and what so many amazing artists are coming up with these days .. blows me away ...
