You got me. I had a feeling this might be someone going for the brown but I wasn't sure, so I preferred giving tips to that poor photog who couldn't handle his/her camera. Ouch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 04:54:49 AM
LOL

At least it wasn't a STOP sign!

bazz.

Congradulations on your first ribbon! (sort of...)
But who are the 5 people giving you 10's? They either have uncanny wisdom to see the "sign", or they knew it was so bad it would finish last no matter what they rated it. They were right. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 02:25:24 AM
Great post LOL, and great tips too ... but ... Did you notice that you also got 5 tens? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 02:01:09 AM
Never laughed so hard in my life. I tried in the light challenge. I never hit gaussian blur so many times in my life. I should have added an appel.

You really like apples, don't ya. ;-D
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Thanks for all the comments and votes. Shooting for the brown? How did you guess? Maybe I just have a quirky sense of humor, but I adore the brown (ribbon) photos and thought I would try my luck at this dubious place of honor in DPC. I took the Road Sign IV shot based upon a simple strategy. Again, thanks for welcoming this newbie into the cool school of DPC.

Goin' for the brown, eh? I think you may have pulled it off!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 06:44:53 PM
what in the great glorious goodness is this doing here?
it's so far from meeting the challenge that it makes me want to bash my head with a sharp rock.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 06:02:37 PM
Sorry, but I think I totally missed the roadsign here?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 04:57:51 PM
Where's the roadsign? Wrong challenge, perhaps?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 01:54:46 AM
whats the sign?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 01:45:11 AM
Are you deliberately going for the brown ribbon? :))
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 12:26:13 AM
Sorry, but I can't see the connection with road signs at all...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2005 11:46:11 PM
oh geez...did you even read the challenge description? You were supposed to photograph a road sign not a cat playing with an apple...which just so happens to be poorly composed, poorly exposed, suffering from a severe white balance problem, and very badly out of focus :-D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2005 07:08:38 PM
Digging for the Brown! Simply super says, "Looks like you are a strong contender!" Watch out for U-turns, Crossroads at Night, and Where are the signs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2005 05:57:25 PM
i dont see a connection... cute cat tho lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/07/2005 04:23:42 PM
This picture doesn't meet the challenge. It has absolutely no link to a road sign, or even to any other sign. Did you mix it up with another challenge? What's more, it's out of focus. Really blurry. Maybe the macro mode on your camera would have helped your cam to focus on the subject. The flash you used creates quite a harsh lighting. There's a bright highlight on the apple and a hard shadow under the kitten. I don't understand your choice for the crop either. You cut both the cat's eye and paw off. I hope this helps you for your next shot. For this picture however, I have to give you a 1.

Are you sure you're in the right challenge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2005 07:04:43 AM
I'm sorry, but I can't get road signs here. It all seems a bit too out of focus and lacking direction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2005 07:02:09 AM
Sorry but this really has nothing to do with road signs. Its a good capture although its some what out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not sure what this has to do with road signs...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 08:31:53 PM
I don't think this meets the challenge criteria.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 07:21:58 PM
Why is this here.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 07:19:06 PM
Not a road sign 1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 06:18:30 PM
I am not sure how this picture relates to the challenge. And then, it seems to be out of focus and the lighting is problematic. Sorry (1)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 04:51:26 PM
Composition and making it a toned image is OK, but poor focus hurts this image greatly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 02:03:30 PM
Can you please inform me of what this has to do with road signs?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 01:34:03 PM
what does this have to do with the challenge???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 12:51:57 PM
A takeoff of the dog's nose from the previous contest? I'm not sure what your point of focus is, but I like the color and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 10:52:34 AM
You may have not noticed that this is a Road Sign challenge. And in case you didn't know. Apple is spelled this way!

I'm sorry, but I don't see a connection with the topic of Road Signs in this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 07:26:00 AM
There is no sign in here .......The kitty's cute but out of focus....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 06:58:30 AM
Are you sure you uploaded the correct shot ? Unfortunately I scored this shot very low becasue I just can't see how it fits with the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 06:33:38 AM
And this applies to the "street sign" theme how........? :/
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 06:04:46 AM
I love these pictures which really doesn't fit with the challenge. This is a really funny one ! I like the cat :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 06:01:36 AM
Pity this doesn't meet the challenge...what were you thinking? Love kittykats...you are probably going to get punished big time for this entry :(

02/02/2005 05:37:04 AM
This is a roadsign is it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 03:27:11 AM
uh, this doesn't fit the challenge at all .... but i think it is really cute, could be a bit clearer.

Road signs?? What were you thinking??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 01:00:05 AM
Um, wrong challenge?
I like cats and don't mind cat photos. Unfortunately this photo is not very technically sound. Harsh lighting, out of focus and poor composition. Keep trying!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2005 12:38:19 AM
What? What? What? What country has roadsigns like this? What does it mean? What were you thinking? What? What? What?
Okay, in Japan there are road construction signs with photos of flowers and animals, and cartoon drawings of animals (I almost took a shot of an elephant yesterday), but always accompanied by text.
This roadsign of yours totally baffles me but I guess it must be in use somewhere; I like kittens and apples, but because you have focus issues, I'll have to mark it down a bit.
