Wow. I'd like to write an extensive critique, but at the moment I don't get any further than "Wow!".

Yes this is just one of those images with "AWARD" written all over it. You should do well nationally and internationally with work of this standard. Absolutely stunning and quite simply leaves the competition well and truly behind. How on earth did you do it???

I'm in complete awe! 12 out of 10!!!

I'm astonished too. I sold my house and had a bet at William Hill that this would win POTW.

The photo of the week only received 106 votes and 3 awards. This has got 186 votes and 32 awards!!! To me this is the photo of the f***in' Century not photo of the week!!!! How do the team decide?? Obviously not on awards and votes, merely opinion. No justice at all!!! We want justice, when do we want it now, we want justice....when do we want it...NOW!...

why on earth does this not have POTW - would be perfect on canvas hung on the wall. yuo can have my user award instead, it is of far more value to achieve Grin

It simply doesn't deserve photo of the week - It deserves photo of the flaming Century! See my comments of 15 June - I was outraged and still am! (I'm not really homeless though!)

Well I gave you my user award when I first saw it 9 th June and it all ready had the PA award
I don't know who decides on the POTW but we should have this in its own category as Photo Of The Year

This is clearly a stunning, stunning photograph, but I would love to know, how DO people get such vitality and depth and contrast and colour in their images like this? I have taken what I believe to be some pretty good photos, then I see this and just my heart sinks and my jaw drops.........and I have no idea how to get these effects. Just quite, quite superb!

Just coming back to this as i regularly do......
No disrespect to any other users or posters but this stands heads and shoulders above anything else i've seen this year and there's been some absolute stonkers.

Why this was never voted POTW i'll never ever know.

Think it would be a nice gesture if it was awarded POTY, that's not said lightly either... and know my nose is not brown, i'm also not a sycophant, but please, credit where credits due ladies and gents.

Agreed. Not sure how I vote or anything like that, but this is astonishing photography and processing. Wonderful stuff and should be recognised as so

P.S. I bet ill still be in shock for a few days!
Work of this level deserves the awards and praise that has been showered on it. Supern portrait and sucha wonderful image, dramatic and beautiful. The lady is so special in herself, but you've caught that light in her eyes to perfection.

Very well done and hearty congratulations,

Took me a while to get here but I'm glad I made it. Stunning just about covers it I think. It's a word that you see a lot in the gallery but in this case it really does apply. This is a true work of art and I am in awe Smile
