Looks like some boring photo you would find on Instagram. In that case, I should post all of my Instgram photos to dA. If this photo can get a DD, then any one of my Instrgam photos are sure to get a DD as well.
Well, before I go so far as to say this DD is deserved, I first need to be convinced as to why it is deserved. True, the photo is of somewhat lower quality but I believe that subject matter is more important than photo quality, at least in some cases.
As for the subject matter, all I see is random people walking in the streets. Now I don't know if the headless shadows has anything to do with it or the guy holding that blue thing, but I really don't see anything about the subject that makes it unique. Perhaps there is something subtle here that everyone, including me, is missing.
Now, I am not saying this does not deserve a DD. But before I say it does, I need to know what sets it apart from the rest of the photos here on dA. I need more than just "Complex composition where details and shapes echo each others."
This looks like someone with a cheap old camera phone snapped some random photo and then slapped it up on dA. If I saw this on, say, Facebook, I would not even pay attention to it!
I mean seriously, who gives out these DDs anyway, a toffee-nosed blind monkey?
It appears to me that you are going down this list and are replying to everyone who thinks this is not deserved and are talking trash about them. (tell me that is not spamming)
You know people are entitled to their own opinions, it is only out of arrogance that you believe that yours is the only opinion that matters!
So I was correct in thinking that toffee-nosed individual hand these things out.
Seriously, people like you make DDs look like a joke instead of the honor that it is supposed to be.
