Laurence Smith August 20, 2006

Excellent attention to background elements -- in this case, the "element" being mostly black. Compositionally sound, beautifully re-worked. I'm not always a fan of softened images, but this one stands out as magnificently rendered. I love many of your images, and I can readily see why they received so many BetterPhoto ribbons. I am quite surprised that this one didn't make that cut, but the judging is certainly tough because of all the submissions. Superb thought process, superb rendition, and superb exposure. A joy to view. Laurence. #3188581

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
