Challenge: Self Portrait IV (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S50
Location: My basement...read the story
Date: May 15, 2006
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/8
Galleries: Black and White, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: May 18, 2006

Taken in my basement of my recently procured house. I have a basement now, and a house, and all the trappings. Recently, my water line broke between the meter and house and I got to spend my Friday night digging up my recently procured lawn next to my recently procured pine tree with its offending roots - the root of my problem, actually.

The point of the above story is that I haven't had much time to take photos lately thanks to buying a house for the first time. But, who can pass up a self-portrait challenge? Especially when you come up with an idea that can both pay homage and be fun at the same time.

By the way, this isn't nearly as planned out as it looks.

Oh, and I pretty much lifted the smiley-face design from nataliedee.com.

So this was you! I'm surprised nobody I've noticed has made the connection with Graphicfunk's Rockwell emulation from last year... This deserved a higher finish IMO.

This is so cute! I love the set-up and the toning and the title and.... Well, it's just good. :)

A wonderful idea. The dark part is too dominating imo, takes too much from the rest.

the only thing odd about this image is the pink and green tint. not certain if it's good or bad really- I have been holding off voting because I'm just not sure... clever idea tho! 6 for now.

reminds me of that famous rockwell self-portrait.. but then I'm distracted by all the extra stuff
  Photographer found comment helpful.

clever idea, hope you do well with this as it has a bit of genius about it. there's a lot to take in and look at, I like that

It would have been even better had you been parsimonious in your use of pens in the photo. The oral addition seems not quite right - or the reflection in the mirror is not quite right. None-the-less, why quibble, it is a nice expressive shot.

05/19/2006 08:03:16 AM
Hehehe...nice one!

CLEVER. Probably the most imaginative entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 01:34:33 AM
Triple word score for the title!! LOL! So far, my favorite! That drawing is amazing also - it so totally captures the inner smiley face in you. :) Great work!

Brilliant title... And the picture looks just like you! ;-)
I also see you're sitting on a garbage can, very trendy
