Hi Lorraine, thanks for posting this. This is very dynamic, full of motion. Something in me wants a little bit more, some focal point, some more contrast. I'm not sure what. Is this a photo?

Sorry, but for me this is a big nothing. I could stand on my head and say nice workshoppy things about it - the flow, the texture, the mysteriousness of not knowing - or I could follow Sharon's recent suggestion that we utilize the same tough criteria as the Poetry Boards (which I can no longer find - I hope it wasn't removed) and indicate that - again, semi-paraphrasing Sharon - nothing stands out, there's no focal point, there's no interest here.

Sharon,
It is indeed a photograph, but not a manipulated one.

Michael,
Thank you.
