Challenge: Stranger In A Strange Land (Classic Editing)
Camera: Kodak DX3900
Location: Backyard Pool
Date: Jan 5, 2003
Aperture: F5.6
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Snapshot, Water
Date Uploaded: Jan 5, 2003

Taken in my kids wading pool in the backyard. I wanted to create something very unusual and you don't see many tissue boxes in swimming pools. The shadow was an added bonus as the sun had just appeared. Overall I was reasonably happy with this shot.

Looks like this box was made for pool use, takes away the sense of strangness a little. a little absurd and fun, good pic. 9

My first though was, "Huh?" but upon looking at it, I like it more and more. The blues all coordinate nicely, but I bet the bottom tissues got soggy! (The lengths we go to for a dpc pic!)

I like this a lot. Colors, composition and technical execution. It's a very tasteful image, that complies very well with the challenge. I would be glad if you win.

Well taken photo. Strange....yes, but it could have been an accident, too. I was hoping for more out of this world strange-ness from this challenge. A little nasty glare on the pool side. Still, it's an 8, Swash

To me this meets the challenge perfectly. I have never seen a box of tissues in a kiddie pool. I really like the use of blue as well. Good work.

Wonderful image! Excellent blues! GL!

Well the idea is different for sure!
I like the overall colour on this ... very, um, blue. The light is a little harsh on the back of the paddling pool and the tissue box is a little too centred, but I like the shadow and the overall look. Well done.

This is so funny. In my "I don't know anything so I should just shut up" opinion I think this would have been better without the glare, (sunlight?) on the left. I really like the colors and just can't stop looking at this.

Cool... didn't know a tissue box would float like that! Nice use of blues... very pretty, the lighting is a little bothersome, on the left side... kind of takes your eye away from the subject, but I love the shadow here, and this is a cool idea! -8-
