This photo deserved a much higher score. It must have been penalized for the nudity. I would respectfully disagree with my fellow DPC members who found the nakedness gratuitous. On the contrary -- it's a nice juxtaposition to the innocence of Pooh. And the shadow effect is great.

As people mentioned, too soft a focus, but you definitely deserved a higher placing than this!! Crazy. I loved it, gave you a 7 :)

As you know, DPC has a nude phobia. Very good work and good sense of humor. Besides with over 600 entries there is no true evaluation.

I want to give you so much for the girl, her action and dynamism, the vulnerablility, the interplay of light and shadow, the expression, the fear, this was a definite 8.....but then... there was pooh.... and I just cant do it. You get a 2 because of my hurt.

...I enjoy this wierd phobia. I would have considered cropping Poo to the left of his tag. Nine for idea, five for soft focus.

Wow, what a strange nude. But interesting and creative. I like the originality.

why did she have to be nude? I just can't pick out any sort of meaning in this photograph at all. I'm sorry...
11/21/2004 12:06:20 AM
The shadow seems somewhat too harsh, and i wouldn't cut that piece of the foot off. Otherwise very good.
11/20/2004 08:15:09 AM
haha, good idea my friend!!!

i childs toy and a naked woman hummmmm?
11/19/2004 12:38:04 PM
I don't understand why she has to be naked.

While I can't say I undestand the phobia of poo. I do enjoy this shot and find it to be quite funny. (I hope that was the point). Normaly I would not have like the shadow of the hand crossing through the image. I feel however in this instance with phobia's the long shadows help.I also would like to have seen a little of the face. From a technical stand point this shot has pretty good focus, but seem s alittle soft. Everything else looks pretty good.

Keep up these great shots.

I think Poo should have been in focus since he is a major element of the story.
11/18/2004 08:42:57 PM
Why is your model naked? I just don't get the point.
11/18/2004 09:35:22 AM
Not sure why she had to be nakid to have a poo phobia but I like it none the less (7)
11/18/2004 08:12:25 AM
Love the girl side of the photo but hate the poo, sorry, he just doesn;t quite work here. Lighting and focus on the girl is just great, but poo seems a little out of focus. Like it overall though.
11/18/2004 03:33:16 AM
For someone suffering in silence from these very symptoms it is refreshing to see someone talking openly about this very serious issue :) Nice shot (poo could be a little more in focus though).

I like how you used a shadow over the womans face. It helps to express the fear. Funny idea.

Fabulous shot, I love the concept and the compo...but it seems a bit soft-focused.... nevertheless, good score an 8
11/17/2004 11:56:21 AM
good concept, but the light is off somehow (too soft?) and the model needs to have more dynamic energy in her muscles and the turned head makes it look like a HEAD OF HAIR like the movie RING, so a bit odd. not a bad photo tho.. cheers

Hey, something new for the psychiatrists ;)
The white sign on pooh's back is distracting. I donnu whose it is, but you might have cut it off.
11/17/2004 07:55:54 AM
I'm having trouble reconciling why this is a nude image... With the Pooh theme, it detracts from it being a figure study. The lighting doesn't play to the body's contours either. Seems like nude just for the sake of nudity.
