* Greetings from the Critique Club *

Man, I've gotten some tough ones to comment on lately - and this one is right up there with the best of them!

First of all, I think that this artistically met the challenge quite well. I wondered if someone would submit something like this. You must admit, that this is an extremely difficult image to comment on...

I do like it - in the context of the challenge. I guess I can't say too much more about the composition, crop, color, clarity, or lighting. I think they all speak for themselves in this shot.

Nice job. :-)

Just my 2 cents...

Jimmy

A man of your religious conviction could be expected to stir the "meet the challenge" pot in such a playful way to have fun with the challenge topic. Congratulations - mission accomplished. :)

I understand your concept, but I think you could put forth a great deal more effort.

Polar bears deciding which way to go during a blizzard is hard to capture with a digital camera. You've done about as good as it can be done. Kudos to you.

I understand the "White on white" idea, but i don't think it belongs in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2005 07:39:31 PM
"this photo has been validated" ?...that's just the icing on the cake! How refreshing this actually is after looking at soooo many rather death-centric images...go into the light...go into the light!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2005 01:56:04 PM
different, but not particular interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/07/2005 10:15:22 AM
nice idea
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 09:38:37 PM
It's a good thing this one got validated, otherwise, you might have risked entering such a beaut and missing out on the definite blue ribbon. Keep up the awesome work, love it, speaks so many messages at once, more than a thousand words. I love the tonal texture, and the useage of the rule of fifths in this one. Fantastic manipulation of lighting in the post-processing, lost points on camera shake though, I can see the detail is slightly hazy. Otherwise, and overall, fantastic well-put-together image! Fabulous. ......Now only if everyone else feels the same as me, we have a winner, and a site as corrupt as classic mutiny on the high seas.... Don't judge me.

So who are you anyway, i don't think there's any risk in it...

well, no decision is certainly a decision.

that's my favorite of the challenge
10

haha....very funny creative idea

What is it????
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 10:58:56 AM
Done before, you lose
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 07:35:29 AM
Hehehe... I don't know why you bothered sending in proof to get this validated - I wouldn't really want the 2.2 on my profile. I would have thought this was clever, but someone submitted an almost identical shot (it was all black) for the indecision challenge. Hence I'll give you a 5.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 02:08:31 AM
interesting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 01:12:11 AM
Nice I couldn't come up with anything myself.(had to refresh the page a few times as I thought the image didn't load) :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2005 12:44:26 AM
True indecisions can cause very blank ideas.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2005 11:18:20 PM
The composition is a little boring, should have chosen a better angle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2005 01:21:01 PM
IS this supposed to be blank?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2005 10:11:32 AM
:-)
this one took me much more than usual three seconds (mostly because i expected the picture had not yet downloaded ;-) but as i try to vote on basis of photographic quality - well, sorry, this cannot score high
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 10:21:55 PM
Very original:)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 07:31:44 PM
going for the brown, i see ... :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 06:34:03 PM
hands up, who refreshed this one a few time before relising it was meant to be blank? Nice photo... its very white.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 03:54:37 PM
You know I'm just sitting here waiting for the page to load and after about two minutes I realized it has loaded. Made me laugh, if only at myself.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 08:52:40 AM
Cute. Well, at least it's got something to do with the theme, unlike most of the others.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 04:58:26 AM
definite brown
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2005 02:09:52 AM
good idea, but this does not count as an image does it??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 07:51:16 PM
I tried to pull off something similar in a college course. Teacher failed me. I really thought it was clever. so much is at the mercy of popular opinion. 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 05:44:04 PM
LOOL ! This is original anyways ! You're gonna get hammered but I like this idea,I give you a 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 12:37:37 PM
mind a bit blank was it? (",)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2005 12:55:22 AM
I love the concept
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 05:31:54 PM
I thought my browser wasn't loading the photo, but then I went to the others, and sure enough I am seeing a white piece of nothing. Well, don't know what to vote on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 04:51:06 PM
That is funny! I actually think it's pretty creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2005 04:12:39 PM
applause..lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 11:49:11 PM
I'm sorry, this photo was just white space, it could have been made in an image editing program. It doesn't convey any decision in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 10:53:31 PM
I gave this a really low score because I don't feel taking shots like this will improve your photography, and it isn't interesting to the viewers (at least not me). Let me know if I missed something - it is just blank, right?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 10:23:46 PM
Challenge said to shoot a "decision." Doesn't meet challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 10:12:59 PM
WOW. HAH THIS IS SO COOL! very original. You took a huge risk, some will love it *raises hand* and some will hate it. well done. I applaud you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 09:23:33 PM
There is a painting like this in the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio. Except that the painting does have a 1/2 inch narrow band of color just inside the outer perimeter all the way around. But the rest of the painting is just like your submission. It is considered a work of art. So ......... nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 08:53:04 PM
Pure genius! I love this so much that I took I printed it and went to my local gallery to have it appraised. But they loved it so much that they stole the print (that I stole from you) and immediatly framed it and put it in the central showcase! But I must give you the credit for this amazing piece of art =). 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 07:24:23 PM
i waited for it to load, but then i realized that it already had. a lot of artists feel like nobody understands their work. do you feel that way? because i dont understand your work...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 06:25:27 PM
While I appreciate the humor and thought, I think maybe your photo is a little over exposed;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 06:02:34 PM
Hmmmm. A decision was definitely made in order to choose this as an entry, however the stark white of the shot, and the blown highlight in the upper left corner, combined with the lack of a thirds rule type of composition is very distracting. I do like what the image is trying to say, but feel that the crop could have been a bit more tightly (or widely) used to better bring out the nature of your message. I'm sorry, but this image receives a one from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 05:33:57 PM
Hard to relate to this. I got the message. But it leaves every option. Mind gets lost. Give me some focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 02:54:09 PM
Lame. You couldn't think of a thing? Really a shame I know you have a creative side. Bummer.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 02:02:16 PM
Interesting interpretation. You can decide not to decide!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 01:21:56 PM
obviously gets a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 10:55:47 AM
HAHAHAHAH. Going for the brown? I WILL FOIL YOUR BROWN ATTEMPTS!

10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 10:02:25 AM
lol this is really funny jive. I love it. I know people are going to flip about it and you will get a lot of 1's but I'm all up for a top 10. I think this is the only entry we ALL can understand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 09:51:55 AM
Trying for the brown eh?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 09:10:10 AM
Brilliant! But it's probably too modern for this website... try it at school.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 08:55:57 AM
great concept (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 08:52:31 AM
I don't see an image...........
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 07:45:02 AM
seems a little over exxposed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 05:12:49 AM
This is a photographic competition and although I see the joke, you still score 1!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 04:34:50 AM
Personally, I would have perhaps done a 16:9 or 3:2 crop to accentuate the nuances evident in your subject matter.

:-P
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 04:13:25 AM
excellent thought, but will it work out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 03:11:46 AM
the subtle tones and the tonal range, not to mention the textbook use of composition merrits a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 02:37:42 AM
nice. not a 10 cuz too much cropping. I'll give an 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 02:18:11 AM
oh come on!!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 02:08:20 AM
I suppose you are doomed here, but speaking as an artist I find this to be a perfectly valid entry. If ever there was a challenge when a white box were appropriate, this would be it. As the maker of "self-portrait-as-raindrop", I have no choice but to give this a 10 :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2005 12:31:41 AM
good lighting, clear, nice cropping, original, good use of white space, nice decision!
