Great detail - right down to the texture on the tongue.
Congrats on another top 20!

Congrats on your top 15. I gave you an 8 and only one 8 this challenge. Only one 9 and only one 10. Your details are spot on, as are your tones and light. The hot spot on the tongue is the only neg or nit pic I can see. Other than that, an AWESOME shot. Cheers....Martin

well, i can say with confidence that this photo is a one-of-a-kind for this challenge.
i love the tones and the contrast. though the highlights are a bit blown in certain areas, it doesn't subtract from the image in my opinion.
very funny, and i hope you do well. (9)

Great capture. Good choice of B & W. Funny shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2005 07:51:14 AM
Great shot. I like the choice of not colour and the way the jaw is off to the side, giving some off-centeredness to your centered composition. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/08/2005 01:11:32 AM
Great job. Probably will get pounded for not being a super macro. I still love it. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2005 08:55:30 PM
I'm not even sure why I love this the way I do. I think it's the assumption of what the whole face looks like. Certainly, fantasic clarity of detail, love the duo tone with this image. I keep coming back to image -- the thumbnail doesn't convince me of a 9, but every time I come back to see it I think - "Oh, yeah. This is a great one!"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2005 03:39:43 PM
this is beautiful and so very well colored
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2005 02:47:12 PM
Wow! Outstanding detail and composition as well as a really nice job of processing. The noise on the left is a bit distracting, but takes very little away from this amazing image. Great great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting subject matter to get close and personal to. Good to see some originality in a challenge full of flowers and bugs. Good focus and detail. A good thing for this picture, I think...LOL :-)

Great Shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/06/2005 09:56:43 PM
That's bound to be a favorite! Great expression on its face (or so we imagine), the position of the mouth led me to look back and forth around the image. Great sharpness and amazing contrast!
Very well done! Love the tight crop.

The personailty in this picture is so fun. Mathching that with the great textures captured and its a great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2005 05:15:53 PM
This is just FINE. What a marvellous, quirky and utterly wonderful subject matter and the unusual choice of cropping, to exclude the eyes, works unexpectedly well. Black and white perfect to focus attention of textures and details. 10! PS If I were being nitpicky I'd point out the blow out where details in the whitest white areas have been lost - teeth and top right area of frame. But I don't care, I love it anway!

Great shot. Me like alot! Now I wonder who this mystery photgrapher might be?? Hmmmmm.

Very unique. Contrast and sharpness are great. Could stand to burn in the top right(left of the bulls nose). 9

Nice composition and texture to the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2005 07:27:31 PM
I hope he wasn't mean. l like this shot. a few of the teeth and part of the tongue seem a bit bright.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2005 07:03:36 PM
I sincerely hope this shot does extremely well, although it's not technically a macro, it's an extreme close-up and the originality (not to mention interesting nature) of the subject appeal to me. Small gripe about the hotspots on the teeth but that's a very minor detraction.

A 9 from me and good luck!

Thank you for an intersting macro! Definitely haven't seen any others like this in the challenge yet :-) And, while I might not hang it on my wall, it's one of my favorites this time around. Amazing detail and clarity. The B&W really works well for this shot.

I like this shot. It has a lot of character. It's technically excellent, and the unique take on the subject make it really stand out from the herd, er, crowd. 10 from me.

What a great close up! Toning is excellent and to catch that in mid-chew is so much more interesting than the shot could have been. Nice job.

It is so yuck, I have to give you a 9 because of the sharpness, clarity, and odd view. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2005 01:10:26 AM
Oh this is great!!!! Love the capture of the chewing. Terrific detail without being overly zoomed. Contrast is well displayed. The ring in the nose is the piece de resistance!!!
