PP Challenge #20 Pale Slider WINNER

Well this was an interesting week. The winner is posted below after some comments on the other entries.... over all good takes from everyone, and I only pick a winner because, we it would suck if everyone tied!

In the order submitted:
mithrandir - I like the dream sequence, but I think subject gets lost, the green becomes too blue.
Ash - Really puts things at an angle, I think it could have worked with at least something being horizontal or vertical, as it is it confuses me.
slinco - I like this image and the treatment you gave it, and well the slide pops, I think the model gets lost, she could be there or not and it wouldn't change the image.
ramseybuckeye - I love the plastic wrap effect, but it creates too much glare, which detracts from the image. Maybe same effect, but less of it?
SWEngineer - another great entry from you. well I like the photo-shopping effort it took to create, the scale throws me, and it ends up looking very photo-shopped. But great symmetry between the two images.
ozlizard - the sky complements the slides colours so well, but the crop without the front of the slide seems wrong to me.
Tamia - if my wife was the judge, you'd win. I too like the effect, but I think there is too much negative space in the front of this image with the reflection off the water and the subject gets lost.
xs400 - I like the second model and the scale is ok, but in recovering some of the green to the trees you turned the sand under the slide green as well.
EricT - great effect, which works well for this photo, it leaves me wondering if I would like the image more with a little less speed. I don't know if I would like it more, or less, but it leaves me wondering. Also, watch to ensure that the motion lines are parallel to the plane of movement.
TOUGEFC - great entry. You are a good runner up as well and how much detail you made pop in the background is great. However, I don't like the shadow that is running over the models face, it moves her too much into the back-ground.

And the WINNER is:
Kryosphinx - I like how the background is down played and the slide and model really pop. The ridiculous colour saturation works with the ridiculous photo.

Congrats and I look forward to see what you have for us next week!

It was a tough week for judging, lots of great takes. see you all soon.

Congratulations Kryosphinx, and excellent job of judging, Jord. Thanks for your critique, and thank your wife for me!

I see that the Admins discovered that I also own a PAS Canon (shame shame!), on this April Fool's Day.
