If you would have at least had your hand putting the piece into position I could have bought it as self portrait. But - in my interpretation I need to at least see part of *you* literally. Technically I wish there was more focus to the entire pawn and less glare on the pink areas.

Funny looking person. No arms or legs.

is this what you call a self-portrait?
i dont like the idea and i don't like the photo, sorry
06/21/2003 11:14:37 PM
does't look like portrait to me

Nice that you used a pawn, and the shot is clean, but for a self-portrait I would hope to see something "you" that sets you apart from the other pawns in that part of the country. :)

I do like the idea of this photo, but not really sure it fits the "self portrait" title (not in the traditional sense anyway). The top of the pawn being out of focus detracted a bit as well

again, let´s say I am a bit disappointed.
06/20/2003 12:04:18 PM
I dont see how this image fit's the contest, allthough it's an alright picture...

I think the DOF here is too narrow and because the pawn is so large, you can't really tell where you are from. The glare in the background is also distracting.

Well if thats you in that picture I feel terribly sorry for you my friend
You get a plus for the humour though

interresting concept !

You know I always feel like I need to comment on the photos I rate towards the bottom and this ones down there because its NOT A SELF PORTRAIT. Happy shooting.

A pawn in the east....

Would like to see more depth of field here. Great photo for a macro or still life. I like the concept and the colors... Not really a self portrait to me. I am being very open minded with regards to relativity... I'm not really looking for a photo of you per se, but at least an image that would reveal some of your character, interests, etc maybe. All this tells me is that you live on or near the Southern East Coast. Your chess piece is very large in comparison to the scale of the map, so that is even difficult to determine. For quality and interest of image, I would give it a 7 or 8, but for applicability to this challenge I need to downgrade it to a 5.
Good luck,
JD Anderson

nice idea.. but instead of the chess piece, you could print your photo.. it would be fun.. =)

Quite a stretch for the challenge, I'm afraid...
06/18/2003 08:38:20 AM
wtf is this? This is not a self portrait - 1 point
06/18/2003 04:08:07 AM
A pawn in Marietta? (or wherever that thing is placed) Oh well. Cool, but I think you should have aspired to make the whole pawn in focus. And we STILL don't know what you look like :) (5)
