Hi Sinks. This is pretty cool. I agree with one of the commentators that the pic would have been strengthened by not looking at each other. STill, well done!

Well, I think this one should have done better. I much prefer both the concept and the capture to the "Timeless Moment" 2nd place ribbon.

Go figure...

Pretty scene, but kind of gimmicky. I think you could have made the point without the frames.

I suppose it is nice to be framed for something you did do! ;)

Great concept. I would have maybe prefered the figure on the left to have a bit of bright clothing too, to add further contrast to the background. Interesting use of the frames.

Nice scenic and cleverly put together. I think if they weren't looking at each other it would be much stronger for the theme/oxymoron you've selected.

Good luck in the challenge.

I get the oxymoron, but I don't really get how the frames fit into the scene.

the frames are a funky touch, really adds to the comp a lot! i like how the two are facing each other as well.
