My goodness, Katarina, did you tell them where to sit? What wonderful placement of these figures bringing life to this graphic, simple and otherwise almost sterile looking environment. Great job.

It reminds me of a scene in imaginary Heaven, for some reason. Nikki's comment, as always, says it all.
I will add that I see this as a possible Grand Prize winner!

You did garner another winner. Nearly everything you capture turns to gold. Amazing composition, simplicity of design, repetition of line and squares.

Thank you everyone for your kind feedback! Christine: No, the people are not placed by me - they sat in these positions. I spent quite some time on location, waited for people to sit in "suitable" positions and shot lots of pictures.

From the Thumbnail in #99, I thought these were sledders coming down a hill. I couldn't figure out how you got the "ROT" graphing from your camera to display as part of your picture. The comments led me to open it up.

The resulting picture was worth the time and effort you put into it. The Gold is truly deserved.
