Photo #12 of 12. This photo was inspired by my recent escape from my own corner of corporate hell. "Mr. Bilgewater" is the nickname we have for the boss, who has a similar sounding name. (Bilge water is the scummy water in the bottom of boats.) "Junk, Inc." is the nickname we have for the company, where quality is not exactly a priority, despite all the lip service to that effect.

This is one of my favorites for the week. Very nice challenge interpretation. I'd like to see your whites a little whiter -- adjusting your colors would give this whole picture more vibrance.

Chuckle, chuckle. There are only a few corp. that are NOT junk. You have to look in a book like "Best Businesses to Work For in America" or similar title.

Very cute idea! Seems like you took quite a bit of effort setting this up. I am impressed. ID card is poorly cut, no deduction, just thought you should know. I really don't see anything all that wrong with this shot, so GREAT JOB! I had originally scored this as a 7, but it is really much better than that. How about a 9? Did you say 10? Almost! Nice try! 9 Swash

Ah, yes! The TRUE American dream! Great photo!

Good work :) I wonder what this one would look like in color... i'm not sure that the black and white really adds to the image... I love black and whites but I only use it when I think it adds something nice to the mood of the photo... :) - jmsetzler

Very nice.

This is a very original idea. It's a witty and well constructed picture. My ony (nit pick time) concern is the mug; it doesn't seem to be part of the image. Good luck (8)

Perhaps a little blunt, but it gets the point across.

Nifty idea, and the picture tells a story

I like the plain colors of this photo. And I do enjoy the nice cool feeling this photo has. Nice concept.

good theme and clarity

Easily one of my favorites. I love the b&w, the composition, the humor, the message. 9 Lisa

Creative, well lit, and nice contrast. I think a 7 fits nicely here.
07/29/2002 09:42:00 AM
Nicely setup and composed, why the mug though?
07/29/2002 08:02:00 AM
Superbly taken shot.

I laughed so hard when I saw this pic. It's grand. The mug was a little distracting. The image is so eloquent you didn't need extra artifacts to spruce it up. Just the wonderful letter, the batch, and that string. I bet this will do well this week!
