    The only one I got real sense of natural aloneness was 2-3, the others seem staged.

    Staged or not, there were many good entries that carried the theme. I liked #2, but #5 won for me. While staged, it had a much more interesting composition, more contrast, and more originality.

    I was pretty happy with the turn out this time... I had 2 other entries that did not have exif info, and were questionable in regards to when they were shot... I emailed the owners back, but never got a response, so they were left out.

    I think if #5 didnt have the cars there it would have more sense of the theme. But the lighting and DOF was perfect :o

    Number 2 definitely, no question. 3 was composed perfectly as well.

    i see what you mean. when i first looked at it though, i didn't notice the cars much. they were part of the institution of the background.

    :dunno: The contemporary style leans a little more toward staged at the moment. I for one kinda like the staged moment (when appropriate).

    I had a hard time deciding between 2 and 3.

    I would have liked 5 if 1) from that angle, you saw an empty street behind the person or 2) angle went down lower to show them alone next to the striking height of the buildings

    Yeah, but I like the look of it better...the colors..and nature in general over an empty bench. :dunno:

    3 would have worked had there been a person or something with the bench...as it is it doesn't really convey alone to me...:dunno:
