Might have been a quick pic for you but it was my only 10 this challenge! After returning to it a few times I bumped it up. Congrats on 4th (should have ribboned though). Oh, and if I remeber right you ended up the only "paint drying" shot.

Nice execution of this theme. Someone had to do it for this challenge and you pulled it off. Great use of negative space. Hmm, would that still be considered negative space, since it is pretty much the subject? The paint drying. Or is the painter the subject? Either way, I like it.

Challenge link: strong. Creative, fun approach.

Image critique: instantly memorable and striking composition. Why not?

Out-of-challenge appeal: I like it.

Just love it, the painter's pose is perfect. No idea why this would need validation though. Simple, very effective. 10

Nice Picture, but I don't think it gets the message across at least not without the title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simple but effective..I especially like the way you have positioned the person`s head as he appears to be looking at the title of the picture.
Nice work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 01:23:05 PM
ok this one is quite funny, with the title added in. Decent shot, creative and comical. However not extremely exciting. (but how exciting is watching paint dry?). Meets the challenge, and is creative.

This shot captured my attention immediately. Great idea and execution!

Creative. This is as brilliant a use of massive white space as I have ever seen. It works well for me. Great job, and congratulations at taking a risk!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2004 06:07:13 PM
Great and original idea! Just the right size for the negative space too!

Nice and Simple =)

Cool photo and good use of negative space. The only problem is that without the title, I might never have connected it to the challenge. 8.

excellent ... great use of negative space, although it is mainly white, it works really well for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2004 04:24:14 AM
you missed a spot...

this is a great image. I love the wide expanse of negative space in the frame and the painter painter examining is work. very clever. good luck!

Would've been better with brush strokes on the wall (IMO). Good concept though.

11/22/2004 10:30:14 PM
Good try but nah, didn't like.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2004 05:56:53 PM
This is a very cool shot. I'll be interested to learn whether you shot it like this or did it in post!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/22/2004 01:25:45 PM
Great shot, nice use of negative space and the title ties it all together and makes it work. Only to nitpick though, and I know this is not for you to control but if it had been visible that he had been painting it would have been more effective. (9)

tell me about it! i like the format

Nice and simple -- Great use of empty space it makes it look like he's in a HUGE warehouse or something. The shadows on him work well (the one from his hat and on his left arm) with the image and show a lighting that wouldn't place a shadow on the 'wall' infront of him whereas without those shadows, I'd be wondering where the shadow was.

Great work and your title pulls it all together to fit the challenge nicely. good job!

Effective use of space. I like the way you framed this shot, though some will probably disagree.
