I originally voted this pretty low. Sorry, but it grossed me out. Everyone gets a yuck tongue now and then...but if you're gonna have a pic taken of it...brush the darn thing!! Anyway, tongue aside, this is a pretty neat idea. I like how the lens view blocks the subject but also allows you to view the blocked areas...make sense? I would have preferred the out of focus ear support doo-hicky not be in the picture and maybe a nicer background with less hyper-exposure (the blown out white zone under her chin). I'd also consider not having her wearing shades so the glare on her glasses wouldn't mask her expression...I guess that's added transparency in this challenge though. 5

Good photo, but I don't get what the title/expression add to the image.

i see the transparency but the shot is not so creative (or i don''t get it). also a bit overexposured, because the white light on the right side "burns" in to the face.

Did you show her this pic before you submitted it. Eeek. Not very attractive. That chin!

This image meets the challenge, yet doesn't do anything for me aesthetically. That's an important component of my perception of it. Would've prefered a smile, or a cigarette in her mouth, or a fork going in, or her blowing a bubble, or ... sjgleah 4

Well taken, but less than appealing. Photo 5 Transparency 6 total 5 swash

That's a very cool idea. It seems very spur of the moment. That's nice, but maybe the results would have been better with more planning. I like it though, especially the way the colour in her hair is picked up so well. I like the overexposure effect down the right side.

I really don't like this picture, It is not interesting at all but it does have all the elements. (ok, it does make me laugh)...OK. I keep coming back to this because it really stands out..... there must be something to it. (but it's still vulgar).....OK, I like it because it makes me laugh-but I wouldn't hang it on my wall.

nice shot
07/01/2002 08:00:00 PM
it's unappealing, this pose.
07/01/2002 06:43:00 PM
Perhaps I'm just not openly minded enough - but wouldn't a smile have looked better?

Nice work, good idea. . Kee
