      Extra Info: this has been the same roadway since installing in 1843 and consists of cobble stones with iron banding on walkway on right side. as part of the byelaws for the docks there was no four wheeled transport and all goods had to be carried on sledges and the iron banding helping on curves and turning left and right

    Wonderful textures and colors, it might be enhanced by a vehicle or people, nevertheless it is my top choice.

    Not sure what happened to the top of the wall and the sky but it takes this down from being my top pick. Love the road, the pavement and the angle of view. Good eye!

    This is such a cool shot! I like your choice of sepia for this old road. In my top 5. I would've liked to see more of the background as it's too bright and washed out to make out any detail.

    I like the composition and the sepia tone. The blown highlights are somewhat distracting, but in my favs anyway.

    Great composition. Sepia was a great choice. Love the way the eye is drawn in to the curve of the road. There seems to be a problem with the sky area, which is unfortunate.

    So close to my top ten. Not sure if I am right to leave it out.

    nice job, not sure what the noise is in sky...might have cloned that out, though it gives the image the appearance of an old photo with camera-limited optical capability. good story. Makes me want to visit and see/feel this for myself.

    A bit too monochromatic for my taste but otherwise nicely done.

    The composition and sepia treatment add interest to this rather plain subject matter. Nicely done!

    I like this, it's well composed, in focus and on theme. I feel that I want to see what is round the corner. The sky is a bit blown out, but still in my TT. Can I just make out the edge of an old florin by the bottom right-hand cobble?

    great atmosphere - good light subject, and composition. Nice contrast in textures.
I don't usually like sepia but here it works really well.

    Simple good perspective and fits the challenge well. Sepia a good choice for the subject. Bright sky just spoils it a bit for me.
