Your style is quite different to the DPC norm but it's great in its own way. Make sure you keep doing what you like and avoid the temptation to chase votes.

Just surreal enough to be irrational. Just irrational enough to be surreal. I like the circular array of objects: the dark void; the brick wall; the shadow; the light (both compelling and dangerous, as befits a worthy attraction); and of course the mildly android-looking protagonist with the magical lipstick glasses. Everything means something here, there's not a wasted photon, and everything's connected to everything else. It's like a game of scissors-paper-stone in which each element of the photograph is 'stronger' than something and 'weaker' than something else. And happily, there is no solution; it's irrational.

The most interesting photograph in the challenge. I therefore give it a 10, plus the Order of the Thumb.

The focus should be the boy i feel, and npt the bricks in this photo

The focus is off in this photo. It's on the hair and wall, instead of the glasses.

Very well balanced and an interesting shot. neither the guy nor the lamp is in focus but it doesn't matter. I like it the way it is and it gives it an 'artsy' look. Upgraded from a 5 to a 7 on second pass.

I like the abstract natute of this. It's quite like an 80s album cover.

Unfortunately I think the focus needs to be on the glasses to really make them stand out.

nice shot, like the hair

Not really loving the out of focus on the main subject as it makes the wall look like it's the main focus but, I see where you were going with this shot and it's a difficult shot to get

The odd composition of this shot would work for me except for the focus being on the bricks instead of the person.
