I can't get over how much I like this photo. It's appeal keeps growing on me. In my opinion, this is your best work. A job well done.

Nothing but the subject! A unique and lovely study enriching the DPC archives and bringing excitement to a challenge. Good work.

This is a great candid shot - perhaps I should have bumped it up from 9, but I didn't get around to bumping up any of them. Would it have made any difference?
Anyway, it reminds me more of 'Life of Brian' than 'Gladiator' - maybe there's a similar photo in the LoB book of a Roman soldier looking somewhat bored...

Rosalega er þetta flott mynd hjá þér. Litirnir koma alveg geðveikt flott út. Svo maður tali nú ekki um skerpuna.

The blown out background actually works here. Reminds me of the movie 'Gladiator'.

Nice work. A bit blowen up for some but perfect to me. I love the tones of the armour.

OK... didn't expect this one at all! I simply love it!!!!! Especially the over exposed surroundings really give it an extra characteristic in this case, makes you think of how things were back when with the heat and bright sun. Superb photo!

Very nicely composed subject & shadow. I like how you made the background white, it really makes the subject pop. I would have cloned out the few remaining blebs near the top of the photo, maybe you have to check your monitor calibration if you don't see these [9]

Harsh light seems appropriate. Very interesting. Could be taken straight from the movie Gladiator. Great colors as well. Nice.

Checking rules for use of time travel...
OK, you're safe! :) Great shot - only criticism is maybe would've been better with brown dirt ground showing - like more colliseum context instead of the whiteout look. Very cool though.

What a lucky background! Great capture. If you had others with the centurian looking more in the direction of the camera it might have served to draw the viewer into the shot more.

Unusual and very eye catching - the inclusion of the shadow provides balance. Well captured!
