    What can you say? Another first place finish! Congratulations!

Nov 23, 2009
    Whoaaaaaa!!!!!! :-D :-D :-D
... what can I say!! Many, many thanks to all of you for such nice comments and voting!!
I really, really thought I could never win; I believed my pic could be TT due to all your nice comments, but most of you were right, my pic has some spook but much more sadeness; I had some different pics apart from my two entries that maybe are more spooky, but I was so happy with the final result of this two that decided to enter them anyway - now I'm even happier!!! Thanks!!!
It's very late here and tomorrow I'll have a hard work day, so I'll just add some little comments and tomorrow will congratulate Alberto for his winning in Open and the rest of you for your nice finishing :-)
Elliot, daddygene, LaRee, f-otto: Many thanks! glad you liked it, it's a great reward for me :-)
Raf: I'm more than happy you liked it so much!!
Bill, Edward: Yes, you've nailed my own feeling, more sadeness than spook... I'm very happy you liked the pic so much despite that, thanks!!
Jade: agree, I was not very lucky with the extra info :-) but I like that you liked the pic :-) :-)
Una: I liked yours a lot, glad you liked mine too :-D
Mepo: many thanks!! and, ROFL, whe are thinking in paralell, I just made a comment in the forum about the Patrulla Aguila at the same time as you here LOOOOL!!!
Lo: wow, you had just reminded me that series, I haven't got the connection before your comment... thanks!!
Alberto: now that's funny, I also though my Open entry could do better than this one. But couldn't compete with those blue eyes :-D thanks!!
And finally and not less important, Franz: many, many thanks, I'm very happy you liked it so much as the theme settler and as I like your pics so much :-)
Not shadows on her face, it's (pityful) the marble damaged by the weather and time.
A great LOL for your comment on my PP :-D :-D you know, I really admire what you are able of doing with no PP at all; maybe I'm somehow (a little) good at composition and imagination, the rest I have to fulfill with PP, I would love to be able to do what you do with your imagination and lighting.
And finally, a loud applause for your second place, you know, your pic was my #1, and I really think you are the actual winner of the challenge... I've collected a lot of middle votes that gave me the final points, but you got 12 FIRST VOTES!!!!! Bravo!!!!!

    Eres tremendo!

Well done.

Nov 23, 2009
    Hey Billy! When I wished you good luck for the next challenges I meant one of the NEXT challenges - not THIS next challenge!!!
LOL!!! Just kidding... ;-)

Congratulations Billy! This was my #1 and I'm happy you won with it.
Very deserved winner!

Nov 23, 2009
    Congratulations Billy!!! :-)

Nov 23, 2009
    Congratulations Billy - Well deserved! I would have liked to see the Patrulla Aguila flying overhead though :-)

    I find this spooky in a sad rather than a frightening way. The composition and treatment work beautifully. The sorrowful expression is the icing on the cake. My top shot!

Nov 23, 2009
    It's seems Michael Archangel...A warrior...
I like the composition....
But It's better(for me) the one in the open! ;-)

Nov 22, 2009
    Never mind, he (she?) looked fine in the warm sunlight! I like it, in my tt.

Nov 21, 2009
    This reminds me of the "Dr Who" series with the stone angels. That was definitely scary and fortunately only sci-fi.

Nov 20, 2009
    Great and imaginative shot! Will end up high in my TT.
The play of light and shadow (I suppose it is shadow on her face) does it for me. Perfect to show the expression on the angles face.
But your pp info is awful: hammered frame, painted background, added Mona Lisa, color, pattern, done. LOL! just kidding... ;-)

Nov 20, 2009
    I love the lighting and the composition with the building perfectly positioned in the background. More sad than scary for me but I still think it fits the theme. The eyes are particularly expressive.

Nov 20, 2009
    Perfect for the theme!

    I really like the image and the spook factor and really dislike the commentary which doesn't reflect spooky at all. But I'm voting on the image so this one scores for me.

Nov 19, 2009
    I like what you've done here. I love the tones in the image. I don't get spooky from it at all though.

Nov 19, 2009
    Yes, sorrowful and long forgotten I get. I do not get spooky. Still, it is a nice photo with fine textural and tonal qualities. I think it will be high on my list even though it is not quite on target for the theme.

Nov 19, 2009
    I really like the perspective and lighting.

Nov 19, 2009
    A lovely shot. The tones are great and it has a nice sombre mood (not sure about spooky). The point of view supports the mood and it all works well together.

Nov 19, 2009
    well done. moody... spooky... good luck, el
