I think it needed a bit of contrast to score more highly, but he's VERY handsome.

Ha, I thought I had this one - 'Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog', right? No, it's apparently called 'Joy To The World' (an altogether different song in my experience), so no guessing points for me.
Lovely high-key image to illustrate that line. I'm not sure whether I see soft focus blur or just low-contrast-high-key-fade softness and that if the contrast were restored the sharpness would be too? I could be wrong, anyway, I love the shot.

Title is same as first line. A little too washed out for me (but so is my own LOL) I would have liked to have seen a bit more definition on the eye - soo hard to figure out how to do this in Basic. Nice job.

.... was a good friend of mine:) Three Dog Night or Creedence Clearwater Revival. I used to love to sing this song - such a catchy tune!

Now this is exactly what I would understand by 'High-Key Blur'! Very well-produced.

Joy to the World but I had to Google the line even though it's on my Three Dog Night album at home. I think the focus was supposed to be "soft". So many missed that requirement or ignored it. 6 for good high key and the (another) frog.

He was a good friend of mine. Cool clean image. Not as striking as some of the other entries, but pleasing none the less.
