Beautiful setting, love the tonal color and nice hiding of 'Waldo'. :)

By the side of the road

This has an old western photo feel to it which goes well with the dirt road. Good composition. Waldo is off to the left of the road.

Gorgeous. I like how the person really gives a sense of scale to the whole thing.

I almost want to say this needs more contrast or something and that the border should be either black or white... but it actually creates a neat, very dusty desert-like atmospehre. Great job!

I feel like I could step in and walk off to some dusty outpost.

Well, I live in the Southwest so I gotta give it high marks. Plus, it's a good photo! 8

Sepia works nice... long way running?

Just right of dead center. Nice sepia picture. Good background and sky, but the road is a bit monotonous and takes up too much of the shot. It probably would have been good for "vanishing point" though.

I think I see him!

Wow, Waldo looks to be a long way from everywhere as he heads down the track. Glorious landscape which just looking at makes me feel hot and thirsty, love the softer tones and the border works very well

Well shot, the kind of image that's hard to present well on DPC because of the size of the allowed images (it's hard to show good detail at this distance in a 640 sized image). Your shot is a lovely b&w, with nice tons and textures throughout; I can almost hear the person calling out for a car to come back, or see him/her getting ready to put out their thumb to catch a ride. Nice feeling to this, well captured.

Good color for this shot

Cool scene but the sepia is not working for me on this one. Too flat maybe? More contrast? Not sure, but fix that and you have a whopper of a marketable print on your hands :)

Nice landscape. The wispy cloud on the right is a neat shape.

This could be amazing if you played with the channel mixer. I'd have pushed the red a bit more and dropped the blues and greens to give it a bit of an ansel adams look. I like it, but feel it could be greater than it is.

the b + w works very well. I'm also interesting in a color- version!

Very good spot for Waldo off in the distance to the left 10

Can´t find him but nice photo anyway, maybe a thin black line before the border could make a different

great shot

If that was a self timer you must have run fast :)

Beautiful picture; a little more contrast would have really bumped it up a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really think this could be a great shot. Waldo is hidden well, the composition is beautiful. Only thing is the greyscale on the shot. I believe it lacks contrast IMO. Maybe a boost would have made it a bit stronger. Nice shot non the less. 7
