nah, I shouldn't have won, there were definitely better pieces out there. But yeah, I do feel that DA's judging was a bit lousy. Oh well, whatever. Seems like people generally liked my entry, so that's good enough.
There were many great entries there, that's true but a lot of them were over saturated with "special effects" or got the absolute basics wrong while your simple (in terms of colour of course) monochromatic composition got it right. The atmosphere, the tension, the light. And the mystery. Absolutely love it! Keep up the good work
