I gave you a 4 on this one. Didnt deserve a 1. It did make me smile and it is always nice to see someone thinking outside of the box. This one you may have jumped a little too far outside.

Carl, this was definitely a unique idea but like you said, needed a bit better execution. I'm not sure most would "jump" to your conclusion, though - sometimes obvious is better if you're looking for a score. This would have had stronger impact if you'd used a black background instead of white - for one thing, it hides shadows, which can come in handy! Also provides more contrast.

Eye candy is definitly an advantage, and this does NOT have that! LOL Sorry Carl, but firstly, the image does NOT convey any "Jump" to most voters, as someone once figured out most voters spend like 10 seconds to look at the picture TOPS, so you need a hook to start with!

I really think it is a creative idea, and that unto itself is a great thing - to me and a few others, anyway!! LOL

Will not start on the technical flaws, as with ours, they are well known!! LOL

Insert an attractive woman and some DPC approved colors and presto this scores a 5.9! ;)

The shadow is a little unforgiving ... (behind his neck) ... is an interesting subject though.
