glancing at my favs, just wanted you to know this is one shot that sticks with me as a perfectly captured moment...it is the variety of looks coming from the different faces, everyone somehow being themselves in a wonderfully playful way...
nothing about it feels forced...

I love this! Great imagination - what a fun and somewhat disturbing shot. The colors are awesome.

The shot of just the baby would be an excellent crop. This is great as is though!

Van, I've seen this before but never really stopped to study it. It popped up for me as I was seeking a "force" image for the "photo name game", and I wanted to let you know how much I like it as I "study" it. I'm not quite sure why, but it doesn't matter. It's a beautifully-realized shot, and I'm popping it into my favorites. Give everyone in the image a bear hug for me, willya?

ETA: Hah! It already WAS in my favorites; I have good taste :-)

This is an excellent family portrait, I hope you have it up somewhere. :).

This is a clever shot and I enjoyed it a lot.

Although I agree with the others - it's got a kind of creepy edge. Look what just a slight amount of editing does:

Could be a horror movie poster!

Wow! What a great idea for a photo and it's funny too! Way To Go! Adding this pic as one of my favorites!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cute idea. The boy on the right looks like he's posing for 2001, a space oddysey.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2004 11:58:28 PM
Good photo! More haunting than funny, I think. Reminds me of that movie "13 Ghosts"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2004 03:57:59 PM
Great picture! But I don't understand what is humorous about it. It's actually scary in Friday the 13th sort of way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2004 12:49:34 PM
Haha, it's almost scary!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2004 11:59:40 AM

They were having fun! My opinion: limited "humor" quality, but an attention-grabbing photo nonetheless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2004 03:19:11 AM
looks more like a horror movie scene unusual effect
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2004 02:49:50 PM
1. click on thumbnail 2. stare with curiousty at photo for 10 seconds to 1 minute, even though you know what it is right away 3. start laughing (again) 4.say "that is SO GOOD" 5.repeat steps 1-4

Would be funny if it wasn't scary! Looks like a scene from a Freddy Kruger movie! Neat effect though!

What a wonderful imagination....I hope this one comes in really high!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2004 09:16:52 AM
A classic! Great work. Almost scary like a scene from a sci-fi movie where they grow humans in jars. Nice one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2004 07:51:12 AM
Intersting and well composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2004 03:32:04 AM
Something about this is frightening, like a scene out of a horror flick. Unique and clever entry overall, however.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You're a truly masochistic parent to be showering with 3 kids.. LOL.

Showering with one is often times bad enough!

  Photographer found comment helpful.

My pick for best of Humor II. Besides humor it also has a glostly supernatural vibe to it. Great Job.
