Clever. Very clever photo! I'm not sure if I like the border, either... but it's an interesting idea. Perhaps adding more contrast to the black and white might help? I personally might also have tried darkening it a touch, too.

Sorry, I normally try to ignore frames but this one is utterly horrible, mainly in the sense that it does nothing but pull my eye toward the edges of the photo and I can´t really appreciate what looks like a good photo. I did try though and I really like this shot, I really dig the shape or outlines of a person there, really cool and I still voted this shot a 8 despite the frame, who knows what I would have given it had you not used it.

A very different interpretation of the challenge topic. This is a good metaphoric representation of someone wandering lost and bonded closely to nature in order to get through it and find their way back. Like the use of the rule of thirds for representing "The Lost Photographer" but unsure how well the border fits the image.
I wished to have corn to eat out where I was lost. That would have been tastier than the sprouts and cactus fruit I ate. It is interesting to note that in this area (Phoenix, Arizona USA), where irrigated, corn is grown in abundance and looks just like this. Next time I think I'll choose to get lost there. :) - Steve

Like the picture, hate the framing. it takes so much away from the figure, and rather than drawing my attention to the picture it draws my attention to the sat/desat border. In this case, anyway.

I try hard not to comment on frame choices unless I find them really distracting. Unfortunately, I find this frame choice distracting. Sorry. I do think it's a clever idea with the ghost going into the corn field and I feel you met the challenge very well. Also nice job on the sky.

Great work, the border is a little distracting though
