Oh wow...!...I remember this photo. At the time I was a dumb-*ss and gave it a 7. Now that I'm all growed up I'm still a dumb-*ss but now I think it's definitely a 10!

Amazing shot. Really looks like it belongs in a movie set, beautiful processing.

So many possibilities with this location. Are you going to go back with some models?

This is a magnificent find. I am so glad that I was able to see this photograph because it really is inspiring.

Wow. Once you do see Waldo it takes on a whole different perspective as far as size. Doesn't look like any place on the known earth - more like one of those secret fantasy places only fairies can see.

Beautiful. Looks like a magical and mysterious dream land. I am drawn to this photo.

Ahhh - finally I see him! I thought Waldo was the face of Jesus on the wall.

I had to look hard but I found him... well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i don't think it's eerie - i think it's kinda cool. looks almost like a fairy tale drawing. like how waldo is hiding there in the back.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2007 12:21:25 PM
Very cool, great phot and hard to find waldo even though he is right there looking at you. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/30/2007 07:44:00 AM
Very good job of hiding Waldo and very interesting photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2007 12:33:07 AM
cool place! kinda reminds me of the game Myst. The composition is good; the tree on the left really adds a lot to the atmosphere. Your black point could be adjusted a bit. And, you hae a black line hanging off your border that is a bit distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2007 11:40:24 PM
I really like the photo - those are peculiar looking structures to me. But, I don't see any hint of a 'Waldo' - I'm sorry if I've got the challenge idea wrong. Still, I certainly think the photo is worth a 7. Good luck to you.

06/28/2007 02:30:43 AM
standing next to the furthest um.... thingy just off to the left of it. What and where is this? It looks like a great place with a lot of history and character.

10!

06/27/2007 08:50:11 PM
center bottom, great dof!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/27/2007 05:41:53 PM
Eerie indeed...What are these wonderful structures and who is the waldo in the background peering out from them, finally what is the huge wall like thing in the background. So many questions, it feels like I have stepped into an episode of the old series the prisoner. beautifully executed

The prisoner used to say...I am not a number...but this shot is, its an 8

Cool place to be! Mysterious atmosphere, nice composition and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 10:43:28 PM
What an absolutely fantastic place to take photographs. Excellent entry, almost didn't see him!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo, I love the surreal feeling it has. 8

06/26/2007 04:25:11 PM
That's a cool looking place.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 01:49:09 PM
This so much looks like an oil painting to me; wonderful subdued shades and colors, and what almost appears to be a canvas in the background (is it a wall); wonderfully captured and presented. 9.

06/26/2007 12:05:18 PM
very interesting location. could be a little more saturated. A nice hideout for Waldo. Great shot. good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 10:05:00 AM
what a mystical location, a little more blurning would have helped though because it all seems a little gray right now. what a cool location!...where is the person? :(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 08:04:29 PM
Well hidden... and a nice photo, not just a good place to shoot for concealing a person. Good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 07:59:45 PM
It took me three time around to find him! Great pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 07:52:15 PM
wow cool location! I see the person, good one! As pretty as the place is something seems lacking in this photo... I dunno. I think this photo could have done without that large tree being in the composition and just focus on the hut things.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 05:39:46 PM
Right in my 7 pile
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 03:55:27 PM
Eerie indeed, and I can't even find Waldo. I just added as a favorite - I sure hope you have processing details listed, I really like it.

OK, I found Waldo, finally.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 03:42:06 PM
where's I can't see him

Great shot !
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 12:47:42 PM
Woah. Cool. What are these?

Nice shot, I think a little more contrast would have helped it pop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 09:54:23 AM
This is just a great photo. It is so nice, I don't even care where waldo is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 09:41:38 AM
This is a really sweet location. Would have like to see a bit more saturation, but still a great shot, and you hid Waldo very well. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 09:11:58 AM
Cool location. Where is this by chance? Image is well exposed and framed. Hello Waldo! ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 08:55:29 AM
It'll be interesting to see what these are. intriguing shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 08:47:08 AM
I've studied the hell out of this image (even put on my magnifying glasses) and CANNOT find Waldo. ;~( What a great setting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 08:09:13 AM
wonderful feeling to this shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 04:30:38 AM
very surreal! very good composition, might be a bit too pale overall. vignetting works well, good placing of Waldo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 02:17:34 AM
I really cant find anyone... But the picture is magical! I loved it :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 01:05:36 AM
Great shot...took me a while to find waldo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2007 12:04:54 AM
