So you daughters are sisters but your mother is a sister. I'm confused. Congrats on the ribbon. This was one of my highest rated. Well done.

Congratulations on your blue ribbon - now you have one of each!! Just loved this picture; having spent 4 years living in the dorm of Catholic School it just cracked me up. It reminds me of the time one of the Sisters on my floor found a "birth control device" in the bathroom garbage - you should have seen the fuss!

PS I just realized something...

Why do you own two schoolgirl outfits and a nuns costume? ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2004 03:58:30 PM
One of very very very few setups involving people that looks convincing...Good job and congratulations!

It made me remember sitting across the girls in those skirts at lunch in High school. :)

Ha it's weird, sorry but I really didn't like this and still don't. But according to my scores I'm wrong anyway :p Congrats on the ribbon though!

Congrats on the ribbon, very well deserved. I was absolutely convinced this had to be the blue, and see it won by a fair margin. Well done, this is a wonderful photo.

returning for comment:
Those rulers hurt more than the flat ones. Very nice set up and capture. Extra points all around. I would included the tips of the fingers. The image is filled with compositional touches which simply enhance the value. First, the humor is welcome. The girls frame the authority with fingers crossed. The authority holds the scepter of punishment and leads to the offence as the girls hands dangle the cigarettes. The uniforms are great, white on top and grey on bottom. Authorities expression is convincing. Bumping to 8 on this superb effort.

Funny story-telling illustration.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2004 04:57:21 PM
i like the way it just shows part of the girls with the sister in the back
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2004 12:51:23 AM
SHoulda lit them up! Good shot though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2004 10:35:53 PM
Great expression on the Sister. I think the photo would have been just as effective, perhaps moreso, without the cigarettes or the crossed fingers. For me, without the props or the fingers I would have spent more time wondering what she was so mad about. You sort of let the cat out of the bag. In any event, I gave this an 8. Without the about issues, a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2004 01:57:22 PM
LMAO Good one! well executed! Good DOF. Is she a real nun? 10

LOL Brings back memories of my Catholic school days.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2004 11:28:01 AM
This is great! This is what I think of when I think of authority - and I'm not Catholic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2004 09:41:03 AM
Great idea! For added effect, I would have liked to see the cigarettes lit. Still, nice work!

11/26/2004 03:50:59 PM
kudos for arranging this shot. THats a heavy suty ruler too- holy crow! I'd like to see shots of the punishment.- now that would be a ten!

Well I laughed, so it looks like you've achieved your aim. 8.

This speaks volumes.....I hope the crossed finguers do it .Great idea...Love the bricks!!

Coool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2004 05:47:11 PM
Cute. I would have liked it better if the cigarettes were lit. Holding them that way, between the fingers, implies that they are 'in use'. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2004 12:51:54 PM
Terrific balance and hitting the challenge on the head. the first '9' I have voted for this entry.

Good pic , bad girls
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This one scared my sista ...brought her right back to grade 4 and a broken hair brush...Nun 's God's rulers Ginger
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/25/2004 02:26:07 AM
What is it with nuns, rulers, and authority? Seriously, great subtle images in this shot. I find it interesting that we are looking down on the nun. This shot is too well set up for that to be a mistake. I am curious about why you chose that particular angle and point of view.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 08:12:48 PM
I like this shot - the angle and arrangement particularly. Also, the 'Sister' has done a great job.
But I do feel that instead of the cigarettes in the open and the other hands with fingers crossed, that it would work better if they were hiding the cigarettes with that hand.
The way it is now, it looks a bit too staged or a few frames missing somewhere, a bit unnatural I mean.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 04:11:16 PM
oh my --- great expression! Your model got you a great shot! Only nit is the wall has the only "color" in the shot and pulls my eye to it in a distracting way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 02:25:21 PM
Very creative! I really like this! A+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 11:48:10 AM
With a shot like this, a more central composition would be stronger. I would also question, in this instance, shooting against that wall. The nun's face is almost the exact same tone. Very nice, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 11:46:38 AM
Now this is an authority that I recall was higher than GOD!!!! great humour in the shot. Love it 8/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 11:42:55 AM
funny! Great idea, good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 11:28:29 AM
Very fine composition, very effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 08:41:49 AM
Great photo! I love the way the Nun is in the middle and you are catching the view from behind the students! Again, this is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 08:18:55 AM

nicely done. definitely captures the spirit of the challenge. one of my top picks. good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2004 01:54:08 AM
Loved it just because it's about defiance, would have loved it more if the cigarretes were lit.
