this is fairly complex and the humor comes through but I have a lot of unanswered questions about your intent

First let me say that this is a really nice image, so take my comments as thoughts rather than negatives. The blue affect is slick, but the models shadow on the left is well defined which doesn't support the mode. I'm not sure why the camera is facing back, but that is probably just an artistic element that I'm missing, so no impact to score. I think I have some of the same photographer dreams, to bad I don't have the creativity to come through with an image like this.

I like the blue 'dreamy' tone, and the various objects, this shot is very dreamlike and well executed IMO. The light on the wall is particularly good, giving it an under water feel. It is one of my 2 highest scores given this challenge, very nice worl.

This is very cool. I like everything about it.
10/09/2003 10:51:27 PM
A great idea and great image. The only thing I don't like is the border... but the concept is very well executed.

I got back to add that this pic reminds me to Dalí work...

There is a lot of big noise on the left side. The lighting effect an colorization is fun. I would have used double stick tape on the pictures to give them a more floating appearance.

The texture (not the color) and border seem to be illegal. Don't get me wrong, it's great but...
10/09/2003 12:01:11 AM
What a great shot. Colors, shadows, and a dream like state. Very well done.

I love the surreal, illogical part of this photo because it feels so dream like. It's amazing. Perfect 10 from me.

Your "photographer" has great skin! I love the blue cast to everything. Like a real dream, there are lots of things about this that don't really make sense. Very cool!

Very dreamlike, the lighting is wonderful though the shadows on the left are just a bit distracting to me.

Interesting interpretation. I like it. The blue does give the feel of a dream.

Nice lighting and effects. I like the border, too. I didn't notice it at first, which is a good thing, but it adds a mystical quality to the photo. 9

Lovely shot, my favourite of the challenge. This is the best border I've seen on a photo at DPC, and really enhances the mood of the picture. Great idea for a dream... sex and photography! The fact that the woman has her back to the viewer really adds to the sense of mystery, along with the use of blue and rippley textures. The pictures on the wall are great, to me they represent the way that dreams have of uniting seperate elements that drift into consciousness. Excellent work. 10

The blue cast gives a really dreamlike effect. This seems to combine a number of dream elements. Beautiful model, from what can be seen.
