Congratulations on your top 5 with another wonderful image. You are missing your calling if you don't make photography part of your life's work.

Too much floor for my taste, but very nice photo.

great mood. great exposure. great title. the wavy reflection really adds that extra interest to grab the eye first and then directs it into the pic

Great lighting, wonderful composition.

This photo is awesome. Having the bookshelves lead up to the subject is a very unique idea. The lighting in this is also very neat, having the bookshelves be dark and having the subject be in the lit area. Very cool. 10

Wowsers. To me this is an incredibly awesome shot. Technically, focus and everything is great. The composition and the overall concept blows me away. Catching the reflections in the floor is really cool. I love the placement of the person. Great perspective, and with the light, really tells the story. Great example of 'leading lines' IMO. Great title. I just really like this image. Wonderful job. thanks.

A wonderful image! Love the reflections on the floor and the low angle!
Very well captured! :)

Very interesting lighting, and definitely has leading lines. I think I would have rotated the shot a bit counterclockwise, and then cropped a bit off the right, to make this a perfectly centered composition.

Nice ...9

Interesting composition and effective use of lines. Good color also.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the angle you shot this at. Gives it a dramatic presentation. Perhaps a bit too much foreground though . . .
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a fantastic shot... I have always adored reading so this representation of reading in a dreamlike way resonates strongly with me. Also I love the play of light and shadow, the sense of distance and yet closeness and the feeling of intimacy. 10

The lines really lead the viewer in here. Perhaps, if anything, the lighting on the far wall is a little too harsh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I predict Red for this. If it wasn't for the silver sharks fin then this would have to have a blue ribbon. Brilliant lighting, with the lines leading to the reader. Excellent

i love the low key, high contrast in this photo. good choice of center placement. It'd be nice if the wall wasn't completely blown out. 9

nice one

I'm not a pro so I don't know what you could have done to keep the bright area from burning out while capturing the rest, but this turned out well. Fix the horizon and this would be better. Good job picking this scene.

I love this photo but it seems the left side is leaning a bit. Seems the photo slides just a bit to the right. Maybe a slight adjustment in the rotation and cropping?

Really nice image, like it lots...

Nice it gives a feeling of being alone. I liked the way you used the "lines" .
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a particularly creative satisfaction of the challenge theme, because in this case the leading lines are both literal and figurative. That's clever & gives the image another dimension of interest and meaning. I think the sharpening or neatimage might be a tiny bit overdone. 8
