Yes, good decay photo. There are many 'crumbling bricks' in and around Thailand.

I wonder if a less generous crop with more foreground showing would have enhanced it and a crop down to eliminate the roof...I know you will say that if you did crop down it would kill the window but you could clone out that brown streak of wood to the left, and it would affect the windows...I know you cannot do this for PXL contests but in case you want to Cross Hatch this and turn it into a beautifully mounted complimentary image to go with Milan.

Truly, only a photographer would stop to take a photo of a decaying car full of waste. I like your chutzpah and thank you for showing all of us that "photos are everywhere".

Well yes, it is better to give the photo a title, they are kind of living beings you see, they need to be named (and this title doesn't need the "entry number xxxxxxx" mention that can be erased).
Afterwards, you can write any other information in the "description" section. It makes it nicer to look at, and more personal too.

It's the dance of the hands with this shot. The little boy on the flute in the corner adds nicely to the story. I hunger to see some emotion on the face of the dancer. I do think the shot, especially on the hands, could have more clarity.

Love the energy shown here including that fella in the background. I am one viewer who really likes to see blur in dance images and not pin sharp and the movement shown here pushes the image into the top. The whole photograph is dancing...I love it.

Hmmm, they are not dancing instead they look like they are in discussion about something on the written pad of the woman in the center. Their costumes are interesting and the photo is sharp.

still26 says:

Surely you have caught the emotive element in this shot. It is dreamy and soft and the softness of the photograph is appropriate to match the emotion of that one dancer. I wonder if a wee bit of a nip down (a tighter crop) would benefit this shot?

For some reason this jumped straight into high res and caused me to almost fall off my chair. I love the colours and the patterns including the diagonal slant to the photo making this a very dynamic and exciting upload to study! Very nice indeed.

Oh my goodness....I am 4 hours (by car) away from this town. I ought to drive up there to catch a performance. Yes, the blur is fine, showing movement and making the image exciting, yet somehow it appears scattered and has that touristy happy snappy "memory" photo.

OH MY....wonderful. You caught this child at the peak of exploration, had you shot a second earlier or a second later it would not have been the same image. This image clearly shows curiosity of this little girl as she explores (and thereby learns). Everything is a wonder to her and your photograph shows this aspect. If you are going to give this as a gift to the mom I would suggest you either clone out those two legs growing in the pumpkin patch just above her head or you could clone and crop down (I know this is not allowed for these contests, so this is just a suggestion). Had you stepped back a bit more you would have shot her shoes instead of amputating her legs, but you were focused on the emotional element and you succeeded completely.

It may work well because you have that blow out of white background....try high contrast monochrome too.

This is a photograph taken not a photograph shot! You worked hard to present us these ruins in an innovative way , through the frame and it works. Nice shot. This has nice textural quality to it and would work in monochrome as well.

I am drawn to the side compositional style of this photo that hints of minimalism. The large sky was your intention and it works to "shrink" that aboandonded forlorn looking building and the foreground is perfect. My only comment is that it doesn't look sharp and I'm wondering if you took this out of a moving car?

great sense of humour you have. Yes, sardines is right but they look comfortable enough. I wonder if this photo would have been stronger with a crop out of those white cars?

I love the artistic touch to this piece, the minimalism of one person. Visually I do think there would have been a stronger impact with that side bit cropped because it does take attention away from the beauty of the image....I know this is all about artistic prerogative and I bow to yours.

If you have time you can still redo and reupload a newer version. Oftentimes I take reviewer's comments to heart and follow what they suggest, sometimes not. That perspective tool does distort somewhat, it is not all forgiving.

I think had you done that you would have had a frame full of chilis and no further story. Where in the world does one find chili pepper on a woven or in a woven basket....mystery!

still26 says:

achhh these photos are difficult to take with tilts showing up everywhere. The doors seem slanted to the left, the balcony to the right. Consider using your lens perspective tool in PS to level it somewhat. I cannot help but wonder if a tighter crop may have strengthened your image. You are showing colourful laundry therefore you could crop down and eliminate the upper balcony but that is all about artistic prerogative and I bow to yours. Technically it is well done with good dyamic range of tones giving it depth and it is a sharp photo.

It is very nice how the three shades of orange play off of each other, however the man, (the main focal point) is soft and needs to be sharply in focus, after all he's the star character as your title suggests.

I like this and it would have done really well in a RED focal point contest. The image is sharp with good contrast evident and you kept part of the woven basket in the frame which adds a very exotic feel.
