To be honest, I think the photos themself are great but I'm personally hoping for more subtlety and irony in this challenge, rather than in your face silly expressions...

Those kids definately had fun. But they didn't make me laugh, which I think is most important for a Humour challenge.

I expect lots of kid and pet photos. I don't expect them to score well. While i might find my kids funny, my friends without kids have a slightly different point of view.

so does a photo in the humor challenge need to make the persom laugh out loud to get a good score?

My response would be "No", but there is a difference between 'humour' and 'fun'...although both can bring a smile to my face.

Don't forget to check out the original Humor challenge! There are some great entries there.

Do you think spoofs of well-known DPC shots will do well? I noticed only 2 spoofs in the Humor challenge and they placed 1st and 4th. I wonder if we'll see more this time.

So I finally submitted a pic for Humor, but I wasn't sure if I should add the pic to "Humorous" gallery or not :D

I don't expect to score well, just here for the laughs.

Hey sric...Those are just wonderful shots! I dont care if they do well in humor or not? Just a great capture of a precious time in life! GREAT WORK!

Humor is such a subjective thing that I find it very scary and the most risky.
11/29/2004 01:53:32 AM · #14
I thought the first one was better than most in the challenge. The second was a bit too soft.

Sorry to all..but I only found two pictures out of all the sumbissions that actually had me laughing. They got 10's from me. Is it that people are to serious about life? or that our lives are in such a routine that we fail to see the humor? or are able to capture it? I am such a newbie here and my entry isn't doing so hot either. It's my first challenge. But I think even mine was much funnier than some otehrs that look like they spent an awefull lot of time trying to hard to make a picture funny. In short far to "staged" or "processed"...but art is a process isn't it..again another """routine expected trip"""

I didn't find a lot in there that made me laugh either. I think I found 4 that I rated a 10.

I'm convinced that nobody on this site *has* a sense of humor :)

its hard this 1 since it is so very, very subjective lots of ppl won't thing your shot is funny or even look at the shot with an open mind.

i prob. shoulden't say this (it shows lack of coff.) but i don't think my shot is funny i tried hard but i coulden't find anything that i felt could be universily excepted as funny so i went with a last min. submittion.

i think after making my 1st run through that many others did the same and are just crossing there fingers.

theres not alot that u can do to please a bunch of photogs. especaly when we all have our own ideas and opinions as to what could, can, and does make a funny shot.

i submitted so as not to miss and to force myself to think and it was good.

if u think your shot is funny or not what u get if just an objective and u can ignor it or except it your choise but don't complane the base of this challenge is to brawed for complaining.

See, comedy is NOT PRETTY!!

I decided not to enter this challenge as it would be too subjective and nearly impossible to please enough people, then I changed my mind and thought 'what the hell - arse to those that don't agree'. I come up with an idea, borrowed some props, spent about 2 hours trying to get a shot and failed miserably, decided not to enter, decided to enter, decided not to enter, decided to have another go and changed my idea a bit. Finally came up with something that I thought was worthy of being entered, not exactly side-splitting material but not off to a bad start; 38/5.5789.
