This was too cute! I hope he got an extra 10% at least in his allowance (if he has one). I really like the fact that he is oblivious to the camera and it looks, shall I say, natural. The black and white also works well for me.

Nice photo, very good composition, and I love that almost everything is in sharp focus. The hanging toilet paper adds a nice slight oomph to add to the challenge. I would have tried getting about 3 or 4 inches less of the floor, but it's tight in there so there might not have been much space to maneuver, plus you've got something on the wall you have to deal with. The horizon line is not straight, but that works in this case because the angle creates a good feeling of depth from the lines on the floor and the walls to the corners.

Well set up, but in my opinion, it could use a little more lightening and brightening ; especially around the face(maybe a little light bounce.

One of my favorites.

Just a little more contrast would have made this my favorite but I think this is the Second Best this week just missing the upside down pants shot.

Waht is it with pants around the ankles getting my 10 votes? :-)

well done
05/16/2002 12:36:00 AM
Very good!
05/16/2002 12:11:00 AM
I love this shot, wonder what he will think of it in 10 years when you show it to his girlfriend the first time you meet her :)

i really like this one, the only thing i would suggest is that the lines in between the tiles were straight with the boarder of the picture. otherwise great job
05/15/2002 06:44:00 PM
Love it!
05/15/2002 09:11:00 AM
patterns on the loo roll ???? very weird
great idea and nice in b and w
05/15/2002 04:13:00 AM
far far far too cute.
05/15/2002 03:26:00 AM
Good looking kid, and a well set scene. Pretty good tones - I prefer a little more contrast, but this probably accurately reflects the quality of the available light. A bit dark, though. I'd set gamma to 1.1 and/or increase the brightness just a notch.
05/15/2002 01:22:00 AM
Are you kidding me? This photo absolutely rules. Outstanding interpretation, and best of luck winning!
05/14/2002 10:01:00 PM
I see you didn't have room for at least a partial profile which would have made your title even funnier!
05/14/2002 04:01:00 PM
Haha, probably just like dad. One of my favorites this week.
05/14/2002 03:06:00 PM
This is so cute and original.
05/14/2002 02:57:00 PM
Very sweet! B&W was a great choice....10

Great work, but it's just a little darker than I would like.
05/14/2002 09:25:00 AM
what an odd premise. works well in a black and white although i would have increased the contrast a bit.
05/13/2002 11:24:00 PM
Hope he was paid well! The Wall Street Journal would've added nicely. :~)
Good tones, even good subdued lighting.
Seems a little offset.
One other 'weird' detail to not, but it appears to be a public restroom, and it would convey more 'reality' to me, personally, if it appeared to be a bathroom at home. Just a thought..........
Nice work.
05/13/2002 08:05:00 PM
What a great idea and so well done. 10
05/13/2002 06:48:00 PM
awwwww.......This is a very adorable shot. My favorite of the contest! 10.
A few minor technical problems, but proof that with the right subject it does not matter.
05/13/2002 05:52:00 PM
Haha, this is an excellent pic. Love the expression on the face.
05/13/2002 05:30:00 PM
This is my favorite photo this week. Who says that taking pictures of kids is not art? I hope that you save this one... make a nice large framed version of it and share it with this child and his bride and friends on his wedding day... This is just the greatest :) Only critique that I could offer would be a tad more light... I know that is sometimes hard to get in a bathroom though... score = 10
05/13/2002 04:42:00 PM
think again
05/13/2002 03:51:00 PM
Yeah...but what is he reading behind the paper??
05/13/2002 02:16:00 PM
He'll hate you some day for this shot, but it's great to hold over his head when the trash needs taken out! Wonderful humor here, love the B&W, tone, cute youngman.
Your dead on target for the challenge.
05/13/2002 01:34:00 PM
hahaha... good shot
05/13/2002 11:45:00 AM

05/13/2002 07:58:00 AM
Very cute image, though I wish the angle was more centered and symmetric.
05/13/2002 07:42:00 AM
Oh this is so funny! How did you get him to agree to this?
