Congratulations on a top ten. I knew when I saw this photo, it was a neat shot with a lot of implied pain.

yes, those are my feet. I was holding onto the ceiling in the basement (nice water damage, huh?). I almost wiped out a couple of times during different takes. I was trying to tilt as much as possible without falling.

Congratulations Kris. Was the subject hanging there and balancing the stool with his/her feet?

This one should have been in the top 3 in m y opinion
I feel that it is not only well composed but that it is also a strong message
Autonomous!

Great idea, and the capture works well, especially with the duotone...

Lovely. I like your use of the spectator's anticipation. Technically it is very well done, too. I like the texture of the wall and the detail on the shoes. 10.

really nice picture, you can almost expect the pain the person is gonna feel...

Amazing concept, very inventive take on challenge. I don't like the square crop though, and wish the legs were more to the side of the frame.

You have done a very good job of portraying the ultimate Pain without being graphic. Although I find this picture very disturbing it is extremely well done and I would have to say one of the best of the challenge.

very clear presentation, i like the blend of dull colors

Very well done.

Love this photo, really clever and one of the most original ideas here...you can feel that pain coming
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2005 11:01:09 AM
Its interesting... i like the light but left corner feels too dark... i would croped that empty space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The moment before the fall sure is horrible, clever shot, hope your model was hanging onto something above ;) I like this a lot

Shock factor and disturbing. Gotta love these 8

NIce quality to this shot. For some reason, it doesn't convince me that it's not staged... Something about the feet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 02:48:29 PM
Good shot! Good idea. I can actually imagine this person falling from the stool. and that wouldn't look or feel that "good".

This is an excellent idea and a good start, I think it would be about 10 times more effective if you had the wall further away and a shadow of the person stretching across the floor. My reason for this is because it could just be considered as someone falling off a stool and not suicide, with the shadow of the persons full body and a rope going up to a rafter from their neck, well, there simply isn't any confusion.
