the austerity and drama of this shot makes it a real winner in my book! Congrats on the top ten.

really cool - wish the sky was bluer - but that would only make it different not necessarily better. Nice work here - I hope it does well for you 7

i like the concept and composition, but not sure of the coloring--looks too "applied". good potential w/other angles.

very cool! Maybe just have the blue of the sky not quite so dark

I like this image. Very nice use of light, great composition. The sky is very moody and works with the tones of the steps. It isn't overly busy either which is good because it doesn't compete with the texture of the stone stairs. Tones are very nice. Focus looks like it could be a bit sharper. I gave a 6.

Woah.. A very very cool pic.. finally someone who took advantage of the fact that this challenge is advanced editing..

Well spotted and captured. I quite like the darkened sky and the contrast on the steps. I suspect this may have been ever-so-slightly desaturated, and if so, you've done a perfect job of it. One of a kind comp and subject matter, brilliant - 10 :)

I like the abstract edge of this. Interesting and not the typical shot in this challenge. Nice originality. 8
