    I also thought this would place higher. Wonderful use of backlighting.

    I just love this! It excited me on first viewing and I still think it is the best thing here. I'm surprised that it didn't quite make tt. (Scratches head.)

    Lovely backlighting especially on the two women in the foreground. Well done.

    This is a wonderful burst of colour. The fruits and vegetables look so fresh. The sun just seems to wrap around the customers and splash onto the produce.

    Great photograph, full of bustle . Backlighting works well to draw the eye to the main subject and the produce.

    That backlight really made the subject stand out. Love the action of the old lady. I only wish the woman to the right is cropped out.

    I really like the composition and the back-lighting effect.
It is the shame the background is a bit distracting, and maybe a depth of field smaller than f13 or blurring in pp could have helped.
I think it really helps the couple are dressed predominantly in blue, it adds to the blocks of colour of the fruit.

    I don't know if this is early morning or late afternoon, but what a wonderful street (market) photo, with fantastic light!

    To me, this is the outstanding entry in this challenge! The light is wonderful and superbly handled. I love the rim of light around the woman and the colours of the fruits and vegetables. The composition is great and I love the supporting cast of other characters who help tell a story without detracting from the importance of the main subject. Fabulous.

    Excellent composition with lovely happy colours. I like the way the reflected light from the oranges tints the customer's faces and provides balance to the shot.
