This is way way way too dark on my monitor. I think you lost a lot of points for that. Is your monitor calibrated? Mine isn't. But if you get a lot of comments about that perhaps there is a problem. If it had been properly lit I think it would have won. Scout around and look at the image on other peoples computers, it might look darker thatn yours.

Critique Club
Now this one really deserved to win! Something we can all relate to and the best DPC fanatic picture I have seen on this site! Really got me lauging! I love the composition of this, really looks like someone just got a new tattoo and showing it off to their friends. Great simple composition, with the hands perfectly placed and the dark clothing, the jeans just showing enough detail but without distracting from the point. "Cheeky" but no crude!
I like the way that the black T.shirt has faded into the background, creating negative space and once more allowing the viewer to concentrate on the interesting part! Perhaps the highlights from the belt on the left, behind the arm, could have been covered up, a minor detail.
You had a few comments that the lighting was a bit dark, personally I think that the lighting is pretty good here, with the skin being evenly lit, with no blown out parts. The lighting is strongest on the DPC logo which is good cause it brings attention to it, not that anyone could miss it! Focus seems spot on, with the Logo in sharp focus but the hand on the right slightly softer.
My Opinion
I think that this is a great shot, perfectly fits the challenge, definitely gets a few laughs and is technically well done. Just a shame that it wasn't in the top 3. B/W issues, bare skin issues, who knows? I think that this should be the new DPC advertisment. Anyway, hope that this helps yo and Good Luck in the next challenge.

I thought this was hysterical and was sure it would be one of the top three. :) The only one that I actually laughed out loud at, I think. Had to come back for a second look!

This is DPChallenge at a new level! I really like your idea here, I think it's very funny... at least I hope it is, and that it isn't real ;-) Great photo... I love your composition... I love the framing of the tattoo by the clothing. I would have liked more contrast, but thats just me. Good choice of black and white though. Good luck! -8-

Very good contrasts, nice amount of negative space. (Good ribbon graphic, but work on your lettering! no score effect) I really, really like this. I'm not sure if it's a 9 or a 10. For this site, the humor is VERY good - to the general public....maybe the "sharp" ones will "get it". 10 Swash (this ain't no gimme!)

Hilarious. I love the use of black and white here. Excelent contrast in my opinion. I like how the photo is dark, but the butt really stands out. Very nice artwork there too. Focus and clarity are great. Angle and framing/cropping are great. Lighitng is perfect. One of my favorite shots this week. You deserve a top 3. Good luck in the challenge.

Awesome. I hope it's real. ;) As for the technicality of it all, some people might claim that it's a bit dark, but I think that's it just perfect. It puts all the attention right where it needs to be.
