Challenge: Negative Image (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f2.8D
Location: Metairie, La
Date: Apr 22, 2006

Thanks for all the high votes. I did get 14 ones and twos also !

I will post a "how I did it by the weekend".

Hint...it IS a picture of a picture and does follow the rules of "Literal photographic representations of existing works of art" rule. Before you try this for a challenge, make sure you understand the rule!

Even though it was a picture of a picture my added hand and brush make it a legal entry.

Not as easy as it sounds because of the "dual" nature of the "negative/possitive" aspects of the shot.

Check my portfolio this weekend. I'll try to have the file "as captured" in my portfolio.

Was it legal at the time? Also...what would have to be done to this type of shot under current rules to make it legal?

Thanks

Edit: I just read the rule again. I can't be sure but I think it is the same as it was when I entered this photo.

Artwork: Literal photographic representations of existing works of art (including your own) are not considered acceptable submissions, however creative depictions or interpretations are permissible. This includes, but is not limited to paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, computer artwork, computer monitors, and televisions. A literal representation is one which is composed in such a way as to compel the voter to rate only the work of art represented and not the artistic decisions made by the photographer (e.g., lighting, composition, background elements, etc).

Judging by the current rule I just posted it seems that my cat should still pass the test...however, my guess is that it would be a DQ.

As much as you have been posting this shot lately, I think it's worth mentioning that it would very likely NOT be legal under the current rules.

People would be inclined to vote on the photographic qualities of the cat, which makes the picture-of-a-picture concept illegal here. Just adding a hand or other minor element to a picture-of-a-picture is no longer legal.

The bottom half could be a partial picture pressed against a sheet of glass with a live cat peering through, that would be more like a photograph.

Nice Job-- Creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a very creative photograph; however, I feel that it would be more powerful if the cat were more isolated—as in the branches(?) on the right are distracting. Very nice job!

Clever technique and effective composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm guessing a cleverly photoshopped picture of an image on the screen. Great idea and really well thought out 7. What happended to the cats left eye?

Personally, I'm getting tired of LCD or print shennanigans. You did a nice job on the editing of the cat though. I'll give you a neutral 6.

Wow! How did you do this? Very good! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 09:32:08 PM
Although I am interested to know how you did this, I want to say that I don't care for the composition, balance, or subject placement. I think the same techniques applied differently would have been more aesthetically pleasing or interesting.
04/27/2006 06:43:11 PM
This is so cool, I love it. great job 10
