So simple ..yet so effective.
I wish I could think as creatively as you have here Thamer.
Congrats on the top ten finish.

Love this picture. A pitty you cropped the bottom of the front egg.

This is awesome. The framing seems a bit too tight though, by zooming out (or moving away, depending on your camera/lens) you'd be able to acheive slightly better depth of field too, which in this case would be benefitial, imo. Edit: still upgrading to 9, this is far more original than most of the shots in this challenge.

Brilliant Idea, and really well shot. If you want a print of this or whatever I would advise you clone out the outlines of the markings on the outside of the shell. But you get a 9 for a really imaginative and amusing approach.

If scratches would have shown up I think that would have looked even more "realistic" than the pen, and fit in even better with the subtle(?) humor.

Great idea. Nice lighting too.

interesting concept.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/19/2004 02:04:13 AM
haha - excellent. perhaps more DOF would be in order, since i can't tell an advantage to just focusing on the first shell, nor a disadvantage if you had included the second one. maybe slightly more lighting, since the corners seem a bit dark

Great idea...this shot should do very well. My fav for the challenge

hehe....funny idea

Beautifully photographed, beautifully lit. A real sense of fragility in those eggs. For me, it's a shame you felt you had to go further with the image - the prison marks undermine an exceptioonally graceful image. I wonder if you'll fall between two stools with this ...

haha, awesome idea. sort of a real birthday countdown. 8

12/15/2004 03:43:58 PM
This one would have done nice in the humor II challenge too..;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 11:33:55 PM
Outstanding entry on all aspects, theme, artistic, and technical. Wonderful DOF, focus, and detail. The composition, framing, and tone is very effective. My pick for top 10. 8

12/14/2004 10:20:09 PM
Very clever. Well lit too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 04:34:17 PM
Hilarious. Because of the thin shell even the inside that we cannot see shines through and even there the creature marked the wall, splendid!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 02:49:55 PM
:)) cool idea... just small detail as bottom part of egg beeing at picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2004 02:44:20 PM
That is absolutely hilarious. Really nice B&W. Only suggestion would be to have a bit darker shadows for added contrast. But excellent overall. Really really like this one. It stands out and it's unique. Good luck.

Brilliant! A very clever idea indeed, and well executed. one of my top 2 pics. 8.

origional shot.... well done... congrats

Now, where would a chick get black ink? The composition, tonal range and comic spirit here are all first-rate. My only suggestion would have been to use yellow for the counting. That would have been more macabre. 9

Funny! And the shot came out great - very crisp focus and excellent composition. Really nice job!
