Expected score - something in the barely-5's. Would be disappointed but not surprised with a sub-5. But hey, two people liked it on Facebook and we all know that's THE place for talented photogs!

How did I stumble upon this jewel, I don't know but it goes into my favorite room.

I love this. I would have cropped off the right to make sure the lone tree did not compete with the scene... but I really like this.

oooh!!! I loved this one!! I didn't realize it was yours! Sorry... you probably would have broken 6.0 if I had remembered to vote. I think it's stunning.

Frightening view of a world filled with zombies! Hope you're happy with the score and feeling a little more confident now :)

Congratulations Deb, wonderful atmospheric shot! I get a nagging feeling of loneliness looking at these solitary figures...

This is so good. Depth, breadth. Reminds me of the work of David Blackwood, printmaker.

Glad to see you are back in the higher score zone. Sorry it didn't quite tip 6. Well done though, strong entry and a decent score. And a posthumous fantasy art comment

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: This is a great image, the shadowy figures are perfectly silhouetted and the overall light you've captured here is superb. The very slight coloration (or is that my screen playing tricks!?) is very effective - if this is a monochrome image then the toning you have applied works so well to convey warmth and depth.

Critical stuff: Nothing

Overall: A really great image, I'm glad I got to look at it for a while.

Great atmosphere created by the mist and split-toning. 8+1

Love the light and the mist and all the little scenes as my eye wanders down the shoreline.
