This is my wisdom tooth!
I predict this photo will continue my streak of photos scoring lower than 5, but I don't care (much)!

Jon Lucas seems to be the only person who commented that the ketchup was humourous. That was the intention!! Realistic blood would not have had the cartoon-like humour I was after.

Because I'm on dialup, this image took a while to load, and so it took me a moment to realize what it was (my first thought was a slug. The second was bird poo... but then... GAH! lol. Focus is a little weird right at the bottom, and the blood looks like ketsup. Good idea though.

Ketchup isn't bloody enuf to really be all that convincing.... great idea tho.

Yikes! Shock value alone is worth a decent score, and I like the use of the frame in this one.

Blood looks like - ketchup!
09/08/2003 05:14:40 PM
Blood isn't as thick as ketchup. The green, red and white go nicely together, though.

Nice idea, but that's too much ketchup! Adds to the humour actually. Nice composition and I can relate to this too...

that's disgusting..... ok an 8

MMM.... ketchup. Next time try Caro syrup mixed with red food coloring. But other than that, it's a pretty good layout.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2003 07:43:37 PM
I don't get it?
09/04/2003 04:16:53 PM
OWW! Is that a real tooth?! The "blood" looks like ketchup, though. Great "oops" shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2003 12:33:18 PM
oh man! next time use a bottle opener. ;P
well composed shot. nice dof. i like the contrasting shapes (diagonals, circle, etc) i just wish the ketchup looked more like blood...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2003 06:21:34 AM
ouch ....the ketchup does not look like blood at all though.
Try to use food coloring next time

Good idea

Nice idea, gruesome shot - still find it a little confusing. 'Blood' is obviously tomato sauce and tooth is not entirely clear - kinda looks like chewing gum? I think it would be more effective if realistic blood was shot. Corn syrup and Red / Blue food dye works well and would definately enhance your shock factor. Otherwise nice composition and good use of post work

Why is there tomato ketchup in this photo?
09/04/2003 12:14:45 AM
Really nice colors.Is that ketchup? Depth of field is excellent. Sharpness of the reflections are very appealing. Not to thrilled about the frame colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 11:02:17 PM
I'm curious where you got the tooth from. :-)

The 'blood' looks a lot like ketchup. A tooth would have bent the cap at the edge instead of a straight line down the center. (Not that I know from experience!) :-)

Good idea though!

OUCH! That's nasty! ...but a nice clear shot... The red border brings out the ketchup- I mean blood
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 05:59:10 PM

Nice photo. It makes one stop and think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 03:17:38 PM
Gross!!! But the elements of the pic are ok. Great color combinations. Nice clarity on the bottle cap and tooth. I would have liked to be able to see the full of the green - is it a bottle? Always one for borders as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 01:19:48 PM
ow.. maybe you should have watered down the ketchup a bit though ggod idea mind
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 12:39:40 PM
Good Depth of Field I like the textures in the background.

Good idea, great execution, best yet.

Gruesome! But nicely executed! Highly rated
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Even though it's clearly ketchup, my mouth hurts just looking at this. Do you keep an old tooth lying about by the way, or did you pull it out specially for this challenge? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 01:59:49 AM
Ok, took me a couple of seconds, used teeth to take the bottle top off, good one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2003 12:47:23 AM
OK this is gross, but a good pic. You have one twisted sense of humor! ;)
