awesome concept! i don't care for the shadow inside the tv frame too much, detracts from the effect a bit. but i'm glad you left the sky in, it defines the point of the photo in my opinion. excellent idea, well done!
09/08/2004 02:52:14 PM
Wow, lots of people wanted the sky above th TV cropped. I think that's precisely what adds the WOW factor to this shot. A+.
09/08/2004 02:21:43 AM
Congrats on the top 10 finish. Out of the ordinary =)
09/08/2004 01:02:34 AM
Congrats on your top ten finish Luke!

Interesting and very different composition. Good imagination in this.

Well Done!

Congratulations on your 6th placing. A highly creative shot and one that entertains.

nice concept, title, depth of field. Maybe too much sky? Overall one of my favorites (9)
09/07/2004 06:28:18 PM
Nice idea and interesting framed image...i would have liked to see looser cropping around the tv.
09/07/2004 03:43:07 PM
I'd have cropped the sky to complete the illusion but you're right on in regards to what the challenge calls for. Well done! Imaginative and neat.
09/07/2004 06:36:11 AM
Cool Shot! Great Perspective
09/07/2004 03:14:33 AM
Using the TV as a commercial symbol (as in your title) doesn't speak to me in the context of this picture.
However, the TV adds a very interesting second picture in this shot. I am switching between the big and small picture, and this is very interesting.
09/07/2004 01:29:27 AM
Great idea, would have been stronger (but misunderstood I guess) without the top part... One of my top picks. (9)
09/07/2004 12:31:57 AM
LOVE it, very original. 9
ETA: changed vote to ten. Grew on me lots and lots. One of my top three for the week.
09/06/2004 08:15:36 PM
Very original
09/06/2004 03:25:13 AM
excellent idea and wllcarried out. I think it would be better cropped to the top of the tv ImHO
09/06/2004 12:47:48 AM
Very creative. Definately gets your attention and makes you stop and look at it. 10
09/05/2004 01:47:12 PM
How many challenges does this picture cover? Like it.
09/05/2004 11:12:29 AM
I thought of an idea along these lines (no pun intended!) This is very clever, but something about the final composition doesn't work for me. I suspect because you felt that you needed to show more of the scene to prove that this is a real shot....

This would be cool under advanced editing, where perhaps you could desatuarate the scene within the TV.

Good luck
09/05/2004 11:07:03 AM
Great idea, but cropping out 3 sides of the tv and not the top feels a bit awkward to me - I'd either lower the angle to get more sky through the tv and crop the top, or else widen the vew a bit.
09/05/2004 04:17:14 AM
wonderful idea!!
09/05/2004 01:18:00 AM
Very creative! Focus is good, and the colours are vibrant. A little more contrast might look nice, but it's great just how it is, too. Good job :)
09/04/2004 08:26:59 PM
I'm looking forward to reading the note for this one. I gave it a 10. A very creative response to the challenge. Good DOF and colour
09/04/2004 06:13:26 PM
Great idea, but the composition is not right. I think this would look much better if you had composed this shot so that some of the 'background' is visible all the way around the TV front.
09/04/2004 05:56:47 AM
Unusual - well done
09/04/2004 01:10:30 AM
clever, well done
09/03/2004 08:43:08 PM
I like it! :-) I think I would have chopped off about the top 1/3rd. Still a great photo! Good luck on the challenge!
09/03/2004 08:37:29 PM
A very good idea but IMO lacks something interesting in the background.
09/03/2004 02:12:43 PM
Very clever idea lol...perhaps a crop would have been more effective
09/03/2004 12:19:16 PM
Good! Wish that it was cropped above the TV - and can see a bit of shadow in the screen portion, but I like it.
09/03/2004 11:44:05 AM
Considering the "quality" of the entries...I doubt people will "get" the quality of this shot...but I did... you get my highest score. (I must have gibe 100 1's)
09/03/2004 12:28:47 AM
Very clever. Great concept. Actually a very nice image within the frame too. Color and detail and lighting, all very good. I like this shot very much. Only thing I might suggest for improvement, if possible would be to maybe lower the angle slightly, or try somehow to get the trees in the right lower so there was only sky above the tv frame. This is definitely one of my favorites of the challenge though. Nice job.
09/02/2004 10:50:12 PM
Very cool picture. Everything seems very consistent about the picture. It totally looks like a vintage picture from say the late sixties/early seventies. I was wondering, did you try taking a few shots with the tv monitor opening perfectly centered in the picture (i.e. crop the tv dials on the right or show more of the tv on the left)? This type of shot just seems to lend itself to using perfect symmetry. Just curious. Still a great picture though.
09/02/2004 07:10:37 PM
Great job of faming and creativity.
09/02/2004 02:54:41 PM
Thanks for the laugh...
09/02/2004 02:32:29 PM
Very good. How about no sky above TV but foreground in front?
09/02/2004 07:51:44 AM
Very creative. Wish the television was in full view and not cropped off to the sides. Also the sky in the upper half of the photo is unnecessary.
09/02/2004 02:28:09 AM
I like this - have not seen a tv like that for years good effort
09/02/2004 02:02:56 AM
really like this pic, although in my opinion I think that it looks better with half of the sky cropped out
09/01/2004 11:49:46 PM
Damn, I wish I was this clever. :)
09/01/2004 10:58:33 PM
Interesting idea, the spot just below Magnavox is a little distracting.
09/01/2004 09:19:09 PM
great great great .. case dismissed
09/01/2004 08:45:03 PM
well done 9
09/01/2004 08:42:06 PM
I would give this a higher score if the sky was cropped out of the image.
09/01/2004 08:19:12 PM
just a bit more of the tv...
09/01/2004 06:20:29 PM
I like the grass in this picture. Grass is nice.
09/01/2004 05:40:48 PM
How creative! Was this your vanishing point subject, too? ;-) Very nice phot -- I gave it a high mark.
09/01/2004 04:38:14 PM
I think this would have been better without the sky at the top, it would have drawn the eye more along the rails. The sky tends to be distracting. But at least your photo has some imagination. Well done!
09/01/2004 03:22:46 PM
this is cool photo but do you need the sky in the top half? with the tv as a frame for the whole thing i think it would look better
09/01/2004 12:24:10 PM
I loved the concept but would have scored higher if the crop was different. IMO the sky above the set should have been cut off.
09/01/2004 11:56:03 AM
I would have liked it better if there was a lot less sky above the TV. Great idea, though.
09/01/2004 11:19:30 AM
I would have preferred to see the sky cropped out and the shadow thatís cast on the lower right of the TV is a bit distracting. Good idea though 6
09/01/2004 11:11:13 AM
wow, very good idea!
09/01/2004 10:38:19 AM
excellent image.......very unique! :) 10!
09/01/2004 10:25:21 AM
Great Shot! Perfect sense of the challenge. My only issue is the crop, I would like to see a bit more of TV box.
09/01/2004 09:59:17 AM
Extremely interesting perspective. Defininitely made me stop and take notice. I like it!
09/01/2004 09:44:01 AM
You gained a point for originality.
09/01/2004 05:37:28 AM
Good idea, interesting. Colour look good.
09/01/2004 05:04:45 AM
This is exactly where I need to put my TV. Looking for another one? ;) The colors are a bit flat for my taste but the originality is great.
09/01/2004 04:42:46 AM
awesome! I was actually expecting more shots like this in this challenge, but they never showed up, and you've done an amazing job with yours! 8
09/01/2004 03:07:43 AM
Very neat.

I think I would have personally gone for a shot of just the TV, instead of all the space on top. But this is neat! I think focus on the TV could be a little sharper too. 7.
09/01/2004 02:34:58 AM
I like this photo, I like the way it almost looks like two different photos.
09/01/2004 12:13:08 AM
i seldom comment on pictures but i like this... well done
