That's a darn fine image, Tony. It has soul. The foremost post could be a tad sharper but i know i'm being very demanding here. Just wished you didn't paste your copyright notices onto your images; they take away greatly from the enjoyment of them :(

Great picture, scab-lab. It doesn't have the scablabby colors but even in B&W this guy does great stuff. This image hits me in the gut!

Find this a beautiful portrait and i like the pose and the toning. The only 'negative' that results from the pose (and you probably got some comments on that) is that it gives the nostrils (not exactly the most aesthetically pleasing feature) a lot of prominence. 8

I SWEAR leaving a nice comment with this picture and a score of 7 Wed night but now that i revisit this challenge it seems unmarked. This is just another glitsch at dpc. Anyway, what i recall having said is that i took your picture into PS (because i was curious :) and did a flip vertical and it gives a very interesting effect. Try it and you'll see! I like the originality of the layout, so to speak. Why not just put yourself in the gutter? :) It's a fun image. It has a lot of 'presence'. And i like images that are simple and uncluttered. You could have done a little more with the yellow line; it just sits there. For starters, you could have cropped the bottom so that the yellow line runs the entirety of the image. In fact, you could have cropped more off the top and the bottom. The guy in the image looks like a 10 to me but since i'm supposed to vote on photog merits only, i give this image a 7.

And here's the other half of the Sidwell combo! You guys make it so blatantly obvious who you are; what's this, vote-pandering??? The problem is one has an original idea and the other is just a copycat and stealing the now famous flower bouquet prop, too. All joking aside, these two pictures would make a very nice diptych and i do like your combined efforts in these self portraits and the two of you do come across as a great team! Lovely colors. The reddish cast in your hair and the orange/red colors are a nice complementary to the greens in the background. 7
When i look at this portrait i see a warm and sympathetic woman. A good woman! And since a good woman is so tough to find i'll up her picture to a 9. Dsidwell better not be jealous of the score discrepancy; he ought to know that he is a doggone lucky guy. 9

Rule of Thirds
by robsmith

Comment:
What a scary sob you are! Am afraid that if i give you a low score the guy in the middle will come after me. So, the National Enquirer is right after all: 3-headed monsters do exist!
Some suggestions: there's a lot of useless black space at the top; would have cropped near the top of the forehead. Would have recommended wearing a black scarf or something since the neck is rather uncomfortable to contemplate and since it has very light shapes, it draws attention to that area and away from the face, eh faces, and tend to lead the eye out of the pic.
The portraits on the left and right are great. Great lighting resulting in beautiful and intriguing shapes Particularly like the catch light in the eye on the left portrait. Mr Left and Mr Right look like sympathetic characters (also seem to have a very sensual mouth but let me not dwell on that, lol).
It's the guy in the middle that gives me the creeps. Oddly enough, he seems about double the age of the other two guys. That's what you get with those double exposures, i guess :) It isn't really a double exposure but a long one. He looks like he's a debt collector or a repossessor of automobiles on which payments have fallen behind or a mafia hitman or perhaps he represents the prototype of the dpc does-not-meet-the-challenge-1 voter. I really feel sorry for Mr Left and Mr Right that they have to put up with this creep. They ought to stick their heads together and come up with a scheme to eliminate the middleman. Poison him or burn him into oblivion (burn not dodge!) or drag him to the recycle bin. Hope it all works out for Mr Left and Mr Right.
This image has Dostoyevski overtones to it. It seems to tell the story of good and evil. I hope for you that it will have a hollywoody happy ending and not end up being one of those Dostoyevski miseries where everything and everybody is going to hell and you already know that by page 3 and then have another 700 pages of the most depressing miseries to go through.
My initial reaction to this pic was that i did not like it. However, it obviously generated a lot of interest in me and got my imagination all fired up. In other words, it has a lot of impact. I also love the title. So, i'll give it my top score for now and hope this pic does well in the challenge.
Sorry for writing such a long comment but when an image really hits me, i get carried away. Oh, and i also hope you drop the rule of thirds and reclaim self-rule. 8

Stuff Magazine - or - Playboy
by DrJOnes

I gave your pic a 7, a high score. You did a very professional job on this pic, however, it is not Playboy quality but due to dpc editing restrictions you had no control over that. It's not Playboy quality because you can see the stretch marks of clothing she wore before the shoot. I doubt that even on the cover of Playboy nipples and pubic hair would be that visible and it indeed borders on the vulgar. You did that to bring in your 10s from those who were envisioning a good f.... So, they did offset your 25 1s. And yes, i'm pissed too that the anti-nudity crowd deliberately and routinely turn their nudity filter back off so that they can dish out their 1s.
Personally, i like nude pictures of female and male models but i prefer subtlety, i.e. rather less than more, so that the viewer is left with the pleasant task of imagining :) With this picture, even though the model wears a bikini, there is not much left to imagine. It's a 'Wanna F... Me' picture. I like sensuality, like to see the beauty of a beautiful body portrayed in an artistic, not sleazy, manner.
While voting was going on, i sure hoped that the Laughing Horse would win out over these booooooobs. Am glad it did. Btw, i got just about the same number of votes your pic got, i.e. nothing unusual in the high number of votes.

Sorry DrJones for having made the above remark. You surprised me greatly that you even marked it helpful :) Guess i can learn a thing or two about tolerance from you. Guess i can also learn a great deal about photography from you.

Is this dsidwell by any chance? Looks like him and that bouquet of flowers seems like a real dsidwell touch. Nice portrait, nice colors 7
