    Fabulous! IMO by far the best shot in the whole challenge - including my own pictures.
Not sure if it is surrealism nor do I like the road sign on the right nor do I like too much PP - but it is still my easy #1. A real keeper!

    Thanks you all for comments!
....I have to say i'm impressed!
P.S. I had very little time to examine the composition...
The sign on the right is very boring but iciness was more!
...And perhaps a train is more painful! :-)

    - I like the composition and the way you've emphasised or enhanced the clouds to give it a dark & moody feel, in my tt.

    This is so imaginative! The effect is very surreal and dream-like. Very well done! My #1 favourite.

    Great composition and surreal effects.
I might have moved further along the track or a little to your right to eliminate the sign middle right.
In my Top 3.

    Really surrealistic. High in my TT

    I like this image. The placement of the well dressed lady doing a more girlish thing heading into a threathening sky makes it look surreal.

    I am really impressed to know this was a real person. TT GReaT Job!

    Probably my favourite shot in the challenge. Well composed, suits the theme and the PP whilst not overdone, adds to the sense of unreality. The only jarring note to my eye is the reverse of the sign on the right. It takes away from the dreamlike quality and grounds us back in reality.

    Excellent concept and composition with a wonderful ghost-like quality.

    I like everything except Barbara seems just too over processed for my taste. I wish her skin looked a little more natural so a more real person was set in an unreal world.

    This is an excellent image. Great composition and exposure.
