My favorite of the challenge. I love the graphical feel to it, while it still maintains the past feel as well. Awesome job!

Beautiful shot-- nice use of sepia and negative space to create a very interesting photograph. I particularly like the motion-blur of the blades; it creates a nice sense of motion, almost as though they are lost in the breeze. One of my favorites of those I have seen... very nicely executed. --10

I don't know how you managed this straight from the camera but it turned out amazingly well. It's excellent and my pick for a top three placing - 10.

Awesome photo. The touch of color with the white add great contrast. VERY good and my only 10 so far.

Upon first vote, I somehow cast you as an 8 -- but on second review (thankfully!)-- this is a solid 10. I don't know what I was thinking!! This is exceptional and definitely one of my favorites for this challenge. Way to go!

a simple shot, that was very well done in my opinion, compostion and lighting are very good, i particularly like the way the cord is placed, adds a similarity with the crves in the fans frame.

Beautiful subject and composition!

Incredible... I look forward to seeing which camera (and user!) can produce this with no post-editing. Great smooth background, subject is nice and sharp. I like the blur on the blades. 10
