Cape Town; somewhere around Greenmarket Square. It was a bit of street theatre.

dang, my comment is so clinical. But rest assured that the image has an immediate mystical impact, as the title suggests.

Thanks Henry! Yes, I was very pleased with that outcome, although ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' bvy would take the view that the score was rather too high to be entirely convincing.

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 highly interesting image with a most novel POV. The overall composition is quite immersive - we feel pulled in. I like the grain and the toning and the eye contact with the subject works really well as a secondary hook after the flick itself.

Critical stuff: The vertical banding to the right of the hand.

Overall: Bold and thought provoking. Excellent.

intriguing and successful mix of foreground/background with the help of glow and blur.

Great image. When seen within a certain style, truly outstanding. It looks like the result of 1/40 of second backed up by several years of work.
