I did not actually own these stocks. I printed them out from various sources and then burned them.

Ohhh! This is good! Original idea. Looks like a very challenging composition. You did good.

Very symbolic. Bet it hurt tho' :)

Very topical!

Good job catching the flames. This might have looked better cropped vertically instead of horizontally.

I hope those were color photocopies... the real deal is worth money on the souvenir market.

Fire shots are difficult to get before the combustible is consumed! Good job.
07/30/2002 05:43:00 PM
Don't tell me you actually had stake in both those?
07/30/2002 01:42:00 PM
Seems a little washed, blurry. Good idea, though
07/30/2002 11:48:00 AM
very nice, but would have liked to have seen the top of the flame, I suppose. Very good.
07/30/2002 09:28:00 AM
Technical Aspects7I think you needed a little more light to gove the papers a more real color cast.
Appeal8Your entry gets the point across.
Difficulty7I am curious how many times you had to do this,
07/30/2002 09:12:00 AM
Cool to see you're using real certificates. Nice flamey flames. Focus on Worldcom certificate is a little fuzzy. Overall very good though considering this must have been a 1 chance deal.

This is GREAT! Makes me wish I had some stock to burn, too! Great timing! You must have only had one chance to "get this right". My only complaint is the WorldCom stock iis a bit blurry, but really.....10 (you may have a winner here) Swash
07/29/2002 06:53:00 PM
i got an indea sell that worthless stock as sovinenirs and how about a percentage seeings it was my idea
07/29/2002 06:50:00 PM
Yikes are those real stocks? It seems like the most interesting part of the flame is out of the photo.
07/29/2002 04:17:00 PM
I'm glad to see you in the flames because I was wondering whether the fire was a photoshop creation. The stock certificates don't look like they are being burned at all though.
07/29/2002 03:56:00 PM
good composition and the flame is great
07/29/2002 01:03:00 PM
White flecks, little dotted line 1/2way up on the right. Nice concept, and saving on the heating bills so the paper is worth more than the printing.
07/29/2002 09:53:00 AM
I guess you did, sorry about it. find finacial advisor I hope you win this one but please don't buy anymore bad stocks? 10
07/29/2002 07:40:00 AM
I wouldn't burn them! One day they are collectibles :-(
07/29/2002 02:22:00 AM
Nicely done ! = 9 Shiiizzzam
