Excellent image Mitat. I love the low key treatment that really creates mood and atmosphere. The very strong diagonal of the hill and the convergance of the path creates real tension and drama. I love the dark heavy weight of the bottom but hate the title in the boarder (my problem perhaps!). Top class.

A nice technically clean shot but I have a couple of observations: 1,I don't understand the pan tone. It's quite pleasing but to me is at odds with the subject. 2, The foreground has far to much to say and has nothing to hold the attention it also makes this a shot of two halves that loses some of it's possible dynamism. Finally, the composition/subject has no real focus to hold ones attention.[+]

Nice shot Selcuk, The dilapidation comes across very strongly and the bench creates a good focal point amidst the strong shadows creating a foil for the blown window. My only criticism is personal to me as I hate text on boarders otherwise 1st rate work.

Nice shot Valentino, I like the composition with the farthest cart heading off toward the RHS and the obvious effort that they are making is clear. I wonder whether there is scope to crop closer on the right of the middle cart and allow a bit more space on the left which would take the 1st cart out of it's slightly weak central position and put it on a much stronger 3rd. (Masking it on screen does seem to work)

Nice Portrait of these kids. I love the feeling of them and us created by the glass of the car window. The boys eye contact says much about innocence and the girls lack of it suggests a weariness unbecoming of her youth. Excellent work Justin.

Nice shot with a good diagonal compositional element. for me the building facades and shadow areas seem a bit flat and could do with a bit of subtle curves adjustment but not too much so as to make it look false.
