Yes, I know....I was being a total smart-ass on this contest. I truly didn't expect to get a very high score at all and it was more of a joke than anything else. Hopefully, people just laughed it off and didn't get offended.

This is my interpretation of the afterlife.

Yes, I really did take this with my lens cap on. It's not a plain Photoshop file. I even have the EXIF data to prove it! I'm sure this won't get high marks on the challenge and I'm not really looking for them on this. It's just my conceptualization of the afterlife as per my beliefs (at the moment...subject to change at the drop of a hat).

You know, if you get this exhibited in one of those artsy fartsy galleries, it could be worth millions :)

I'll take 5% for the idea!

lol...obviously you spent a lot of time and effort for this composition. I think the photo is excellent! I'm giving it a 10!! Anybody that scores it lower doesn't understand the genious behind it. Good work!!

Photography? I don't think so.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting idea. However, it didn't take much effort to take this shot. Not much here to judge. At least it's not out of focus! Ha Ha

This is certainly the closest to the way I see afterlife.

Huh?

This is a wonderful picture of a black cat sitting under the stairs on a cloudy, moonless night - simply wonderful! Although you should have taken the picture when the cat had it's eyes open. :-) I'm going to give you a 10 because: 1) I had the same idea, but didn't have the guts to enter it, and 2) I think you're going to need all the help you can get. :-)

must have been hard to pull off ;-) hey... look on the bright (dark) side... people can't lote low on what they can't see ;-)

I realise this is your idea of the after life but it really doesn't show your photography skills off to their advantage.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2006 08:38:34 AM
Umm... it looks like black.
I even dare say its black.
You could think metaphysically quite alot about this but I dont like black as a picture.

Lens cap? Cloth? Real dark? Haha, I wanna know how you did it...there are so many possibilities. :)

You stole my idea! I knew my dog was eavesdropping on my brainstorms and selling my ideas to the mafia!

03/08/2006 12:37:41 PM
as far as a PHOTOGRAPH goes, i really don't think this cuts it
03/08/2006 11:14:29 AM
haha very good - wanted to do something like this myself, but couldn't find anything black enough ;-)

Next time, take the lense cap off ;-)
Nevertheless, it meets the challenge rather well.

not the most original idea. good sharpness, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2006 03:36:34 AM
Hehehe, funny image. But not really a picture...
