    Not in my tt but an intriguing shot for me since I couldn't figure out my own reaction. I loved the tree and the skyline and the clouds. I'd love to see that with a windblown figure looking in to the photo from the left. Beautifully done. That left me with a small bucket in an uninteresting road and shoulder area so they would have to go. Oh yes this is a tools challenge LOL so in that case I'd like to see a much bigger bucket so it could be the star of the show. In this case I think the background was much better than the main subject despite the use of colour to try and make it stand out more.

    I like the composition, with the crest of the mound diminishing the bush adds balance to the scene.

    Interesting, if you stretch your imagination, I can see a pair of eyes & a mouth saying, why did you leave me here. Nice shot

    Your PP really works well. Having the bucket colored draws my attention. I think I'd have liked to seen the bucket a little larger, but I really like seeing the tree in the background.

    Nice take on the theme. Certainly has that "wow" factor. The tree in the background gives this image a :johncomyn" feel (this is a compliment). Well done.

    Good good good find! I like the composition and the feel to this...except for the selective colorization. IMHO, the story is better told and the dirty, old and rusty digger is better revealed in monochrome.

    Interesting concept - the color/B&B treatment adds a surreal quality' Like the way the tree balances the bucket.
