I am tempted to become nasty with you, as you have no right to call me lazy. I work six days a week, and often late nights waiting tables, and I am a student, and a part time farrier, and on top of that, I try to make time for these contests. Your comment is way out of line. I have yet to see a photo which portrays a mouse in this fashion. Maybe you should adjust your monitor if you think its "too dark." I happen to appreciate this little element of the photo called, "dramatic emphasis." If you are going to comment on a photo, call the photographer lazy, and give it a three, you should at least tell me how you think it could be better... all you said was "With different camera settings you might have captured the laser's glow much better." "Different camera settings?" Maybe you should have thought about that before blurting it out.

I always knew that computers had gremlins in them. This is a great photo that shows that sinister nature. Good job.

Without the title, i could not tell what this is... its certainly not surrealism... Composition is good, but the colours are way out of proportion on this shot, which makes it lose some of the quality. Pixels... 4

Wow, very nice. I use a computer EVERY day of my life and have not seen that image. Thank you for opening my eyes. I guess I do not work at night that much anymore. Good Job.
