I have heard others say that reading comments is the most rewarding part
of entering the RTC. Can't say I share that sentiment, but POSTING
comments is very important to me now as the only way in which I can
support Steve's endeavor (not likely producing images any time soon).

Surprisingly, it seems that posting comments on the recently completed
round is not possible, at least for non-entrants. I want to do what I
can to make the entrant's work as rewarding as possible.

  Hi Shay  :)

    Ok, this is direct from Colin himself:

   "3. Comment on old competition entries

At the moment, there is no way. It's been put on the
list though.

if you send me the comments (and scores), I will
insert them. However, please note, this may affect the
ratings and the overall winner.

Have a great weekend.
Colin."

   By him saying, "there is no way", he means that there's no way you can do 
it directly now. But, as he says, it's on the <decreasing - (my insertion)> 
list to do.

   I think I will leave it up to you if you want to score, but yes Shay, if 
yourself, Hildur and anyone else that wants to comment, sends me those 
comments, he can put them there for you. Please use my mr_gold at tiscali 
dot co dot uk address.

  Sorry about this (all), I did expect some bugs, but once this is running 
smoothly, all will be well. Please bear with me. I want this to be the way 
you want it to be.

    Later,

   ~Steve~

I'll leave the scoring to the entrants, but I did send comments to your
email. I'll post them here to.

Arch by Michael_H:
The narrative is incomplete. A woman in a khimar walks through a
bombed-out middle-eastern structure. A man watches through a window. Who
are these people and what role is the khimar (black robe) playing in the
scene? Feels like this just HAS to be some type of political or social
commentary, but no clues are apparent. Some of the techniques used are
crude, but there is a lot here, enough to make me want to know what's
going on.

chaos by chrisann:
I can't tell that anything terrible is happening. There are objects in
the image which I cannot identify at all. Very messy.

The Duel by steve:
Composition wise, looks like a crop from a painting or engraving. The
composition looks as if it could have taken place directly on the
viewing plane, which is a credit to your arrangement and camera-work.
Very ambitious but effective picture. Mick Hazelgrove is the only one I
ever recall having tied so many disparate elements together in a
visually cohesive manner, but this is getting there.

Black Magic by rfitzel:
Very basic, but it's all there. I would find it more interesting with
some conscious character in the scene. Both the wizard and woman appear
to be in a trance state. A horrified or interested or angered onlooker
would give the viewer a character with whom to relate. Complete mystery
is dull. Some clue to the wizard's intent would also make the scene more
interesting to me.
