Interesting take on the challenge.

Too dark and blurry. Comes off as a quick snapshot that makes you strain to look at it. Good concept, though.

poor focus, very snapshotish, and I'm more interested in Fisher's friend here than Fisher :)

clever news-reportage capture and link! Not many will get, I expect. However, you will be criticised for blurriness and poor colour/contrast/brightness correction in post-processing.

Good for everybody! Ttry to convince him to play again :)

that is really out of focus.

an Icelander in Iceland as opposed to an Icelander in Brazil?? ;-)

This would have had more impact if it was clearer and brighter. Happy to see some creative thought here.

A fuzzy Fisher fails to find focus. Sorry! F.

Papparass bara? Flott moment, svolítið blurruð þó enda aðstæður ekki upp á sitt besta.
03/31/2005 09:04:08 AM
paparozzi style?

This is valuable historical shot... newsworthy event somewhat downplayed in Bobby's ex home country. It lacks sharpness though, but that enhances the newspaper look of the photo. Perfect fit for the challenge too. 8 from me.

Outstanding shot of the man himself, loony beyond doubt, but one of the true grandmasters of the game. Thanks for sharing this little piece of chess and Icelandic history!

too bad this image is so dark and blurry...
03/30/2005 06:11:27 PM
Clever title. Incredible capture. too bad about the focus issues. I'll still bump it
03/30/2005 05:32:37 PM
focus is bad and I really can't see what you tried to say with this.
03/30/2005 03:32:49 PM
Good opportunity, but the quality is poor.
03/30/2005 01:57:39 PM
Not sure how this correlates with "In the Beginning..." Otherwise, it's a really cool photo!
03/30/2005 12:24:26 PM
What a mess this mast be too have this lunatic coming too Iceland :)
03/30/2005 12:18:34 PM
I thought the first fishers arrived by boat.
03/30/2005 11:28:57 AM
I think Fisher is at the end.
03/30/2005 10:33:01 AM
very dark and out of focus.
03/30/2005 08:08:05 AM
Too dark and blurry.
