I took this on a mission trip in the Andes mountains of Peru. This shot was in a small town at 14,000 ft. called Huancavelica. Unfortunately, I always seem to lose a significant amount of detail when saving for web, and this was no exception. I agree with AndrewT that I could have done a better job isolating the door and main focal point better, too.

Post-Challenge: Overall, a little bit disappointed that this didn't beat my high score. I didn't think it had a shot at my first six, but it was up at a 5.7 earlier in the week, so I had my hopes up. Thanks to posthumous for the blue and undieyatch for his award, though, these made my day.

Sorry, not feeling well last night. "pblue" means I'm giving this my own personal blue ribbon, the Posthumous Blue Ribbon.

Given to a brilliant abstract that still claws onto reality.

Colors are nice , location I feel is also interesting. Unfortunately I think the main focal point or main interest is not isolated well enough (at least conveyed to this viewer) - no vote
