Well, so simple. Should have done better, but very well done, I liked this a lot

I couldn't stop thinking about your setup, windering how on earth you achieved that shadow. And now you tell me it's painted? Okay, I fell for it. Great picture, keep them coming.

Great creativity on this one, love the shot. I'm courious how you did this but good work. Simple and very effective way of deminstrating the challenge.

nice illusion. the shadow is painted/overlaid on the BG?
Is there a faint red colourcast to this all? reflected from the pinwheel?

This is so marvellous! I can only guess that it is two photos, or had some other effect done. Good subject, composition, colour, lighting!

Good idea! Good colors and subject. Really well done. Probably with a faster shot it colud be better (the pinweel is too fast!).

Excellent setup! Clever idea and perfectly excecuted.

12/20/2004 12:08:06 PM
heh... this is conceptually excellent. I'd wish for a hair less blur in the rotation...

Very clever...Very simple and yet conveys the total concept of the challenge. Well Done.

I absolutely love this composition and the concept. I would love to know how you've done it - good luck

Dude, how did you do this? I'm eager for voting to end to hear you explanations on this one. Great shot. The idea of wind is clear and well analyzed. The composition is fine, but I don't know what to think of the border. O well. 9.

How was this done...?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 06:23:17 PM
Interesting idea. I'm wondering how you did it... Is the shadow really a cutout lying on the table? Effective image and clever take on the theme.

Good picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 01:20:30 PM
I really like this, its very clever, meets the challenge, but something seems to missing, I'm not sure what it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 01:03:32 PM
Good Technique
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 01:02:27 PM
i like the contrast between the spinning wheel and the shadow, cool idea, and great composition as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 07:49:28 AM
Cute concept! Well executed -- a nine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 01:53:53 AM
The border is distracting and not necessary. Otherwise I like this shot a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2004 12:23:08 AM
Very interesting image. I'll be looking forward to the explaination after the challenge. 9

Clever. I'm going to have to guess that the 'shadow' is a paper cutout... I was thinking that maybe you had an external flash you fired, but then there's be a distinct image of the pinwheel too. I like the idea.

12/15/2004 03:52:14 PM
it is an overall good phtograph except for the little bit of the actual shadow that you can see on the bottom right of the pict. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 12:27:12 PM
Great idea! Guess you painted the shadow and then lit the scene well? (first thought was it was manipulated ....) Good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 12:12:01 PM
creative
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 09:48:34 AM
Very clever. Simple but works well. IMO should get one of three ribbons

Hmm...hand drawn shadow? Kudos for creativity! This is why I enjoy using this website. Quite inspiring :)

Good entry on artistic and technical grounds.

12/15/2004 02:18:49 AM
cool, first i think flash, but is drawing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 01:13:18 AM
I think the image would have had a more profound affect if you actually didn't give it such a direct title
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 01:07:38 AM
VERY creative and a good photo :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2004 12:32:57 AM
How did you do this? It looks like a graphic. I never would have guessed it was a photo. Very cool.
