    Apology accepted. I just felt that since I'm in no way a professional photographer that the criticism was a bit harsh and if meant to be constructive, was not interpreted in that way. I get in these contests purely for the enjoyment of taking images that I find interesting, mainly as a play on the subject matter. The art form incorporated in the subject thus far has eluded me in most of my submissions.

Thanks for the comments but they can still leave me a bit on edge.

    Sorry, Dougster. Didn't mean my comment to be taken as a personal offense (assuming your reply is not in jest). Don't know the solution other than not commenting on any entries or just making purely complimentary comments (since I can't know which entries are yours.) If others think my comments are out of line, I would appreciate being told so straight up.

    There are some nice pics that I'm leaving without votes, but I want to include yours in my TT. Not only for I myself loving puzzling (unfortunately I have *very* little time left to practise more often :-( sniff...), but also for it being a nicely composed one, and a good take on theme. Well done!
(A very minor suggestion, clone out the bit of a piece on the top left - or include a whole piece or two unsettled in that negative space :-)

    Very nice composition; the colours work very well for me, We love to do these and usually have one sitting somewhere for the attention of anyone with a few minutes to spare. Did you know there is a group in the UK who do jigsaw puzzles with the pieces facing down ! Not my idea of fun LOL

    For crying out loud, it's a picture of someone putting a puzzle together, it's not a cure for cancer.

    There is a piece missing here for me. I just don't find this close up an interesting detail; though it is otherwise technically and compositionally well executed, it lacks purpose, meaning, or punch.
