There you go--a woody shot that did well! And so well done.

And now we're all looking at your profile... ;)

This shot is so creative! I gave it an 8 during voting, but didn't have time to comment. Your nice comments inspired me to check out your portfolio again.

To me, everything about this shot is good; the lighting, composition, action, everything. Great job.

Thought you had top 10 with this one, but still a great finish with a great photograph! Exceptional job.

Great! I was sure this was going to turn out to be a kpriest shot, lol. :)

LOL.... That's what my ol' lady says first thing in the morning! :-P This is one of the best 'woodie' shot's I've seen in a while. It looks a little dull though like it could use a boost in lighting (which may spoil the illusion... You hung the woodie up with string?) or levels.

I'm new to the site and voting. This shot made me laugh - very creative and well done.

woodies are often a guarantee for an original expression on the subject
like here..well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 01:12:35 PM
well composed, but focus is soft and your tonal range is pretty narrow. The image would have more punch with a blacker background and brighter highlights.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 11:44:39 AM
Bit to much negative space for my taste but i like the compositon and the Idea is very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 01:51:50 AM
hey, cool.
nice use of your woodies :-)

Very cute interpretation of the challenge. And well done as usual.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

These woodies never cease to amaze me as to their use in creativity. Nicely done (7)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Now this would have to be one of the best woody shots I have seen here. Great work and good illusion, bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 04:47:36 AM
well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 02:38:24 AM
kpriest, is that you? :) If not, sorry, an excellent photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 11:18:46 PM
I usually despise Woodie... this is an exception - this one is terrific! You've really thought the physical dynamics out. Perfect 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 01:26:39 PM
Is the one in the centre being levitated, or is it some kind of tumbling act? I do feel that it could do with a touch of additional sharpening and perhaps a small levels adjustment to make the background a little darker.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 02:08:20 AM
Mr Priest I presume. I like the idea - it's a nice illusion and made me smirk, but it could be a little crisper, the white balance is perhaps too warm and the focus is perhaps not sharp enough. Finally the 'horizon' doesn't seem quite level. Phew! that's a lot of knitpicking for a shot I like. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 07:35:07 PM
Excellent composition. Nicely set up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 04:57:49 PM
Lack of sharpness lets this down for me though I like the composition and simplicity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 12:51:01 PM
the composition is strong, and the idea is well executed. Lets hope the amazing woodies score well..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 05:52:11 AM
I love this pic, I love the idea of cooperation that the composition conveys.
Kinda moving if you'll allow me to get a bit sensitive.

And they are amazing, aren't they - great illusion BTW - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 03:10:44 PM
I've got to stop scoring these soooo high... it only encourages you :)
Great lighting and concept. Good job. I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 12:20:42 PM
I can see the illusing in this, but i dont feel that you put enought into this, you didnt come from your heart, you came from waht you think is funny or illuisontistic, my shots arent great, and im still learning alot, so dont take this the wronge way,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 07:20:56 PM
good idea, focus/lighting looks just a little off, but overall a nice job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 03:12:41 PM
That's cool, I like the effect, lighting is good, color is good, great detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 03:08:16 PM
First Impression: I love the pose on the right woody. Except for the legs it would animate well. A deeper black point might have helped contrast and taken away some of the red cast.
Was I fooled? Pretty Close ! Lovely Idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 02:31:28 PM
This is the first "Woody" photo that I've ever given a high score to. I hate woodies. But... I really like the execution of your concept. It actually made me laugh - they look like some kind of circus act. Congrats to you for making me *like* a woody shot, you woody lover!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 02:20:38 PM
Nice illusion picture. Would be even more believable if the woody on the right had his "hands" under the flooting woody. Nice lighting. Suggestion....you should cover the table top with black too. Just my opinion. 7
