Critique Club Review:

I'm afraid I have to join the chorus on this one. I don't see Gary Larson in this one. I realize that some people feel that a photo should be judged on merit alone, challege be hanged. However, I do feel that part of the score is the challenge, and that if the challeges were ignored then we would have un-ending free studies. I still would not have voted this image as low as some have. (I figure meeting the challenge or not is worth about 1 point.)

This is an interesting photo, good colors, saturation, and hues. Brightness is fine and contrast is very good. The focus and depth of field is excellent.

The drawback I do see is the sky. Pale and featureless, you've left a blank spot on the canvas. Cropping the sky our would have help a fair amount. Or catching it earlier or later in the day, when there is more color.

Overall a nice picture that should have been voted a bit higher.

I think this is meant for the "East Side" challenge.

Sorry, I don't get the tie in to Larson or the Far side.

Very nice photo, but I do not see the Far Side connection

I am sorry but I am just not seeing the theme in this one. It doesn't jump out at me like the others do.

Nice pic, but I don't understand the relation to Gary Larson.

I've read a lot of Larson toons and I don't really get the connection to this Challenge. Sorry. Nice pic though.

Interesting play on irony. This might be similar to the one i chose - that it just doesn't grab people enough as teh typical "far side". I like it and it's a non-obvious and unique selection for the challenge.

Sorry I don't get it (am I just being dumb?)

Not seeing the joke in this one, I have a feeling it's there but I just can't pick it out.

This is a great city shot, but to be honest I rated it low. I looked it over for about 30 seconds and I couldnt find a subject that fit with Larson's style. I like how you made the caption Ironic and I think that helps, but its lacking cows, chickens., and dinosaurs if you know what I mean.

I'm not quite sure how this relates to the Far Side, maybe I am missing something

Another Far Side classic. Way to recreate this one. Really good work.

Ah, the most subtle, yet also very much in Larson's style of social commentary. 9.

I look forward to reading the explanation for this, because I don't get it. It doesn't bring back any memories of Larson's work to me.
