I guess I should say that this was a set up. I used to work as a Driver's Improvement Instructor and I often thought how ironic it would be if I would ever get careless and get a ticket after all the emphasis I put on paying attention to your speed and not speeding. The office giving the ticket was this lady's husband and he said he would love to help out. He is very tall so it was hard to get all of him and her in one photo.

Great setup! Like the way you cropped this, too.

The tag is hard to see, and it's 1/2 the subject (the ticket being the other half). It's a great idea. In fact, it looks almsot fake but I give you the benefit of the doubt.
The B&W helps this photo - helps our eyes to pay attention and not wander off.

I give you a 5...had the tag been easier to see (perhaps bump the contrast a little?), I'd have given you a 6.

Oh, those sad moments when we're caught with our foot in our mouths. Love this shot.

This one was hard to figure out. The officer wasn't too obvious. Now that I have figured it out, I like it :) Fits the challenge well

HAHAHA! Nice setup. At least I assume it's a setup. I'm wondering if the B&W really does this shot justice though? I'd like to compare it to the color. I'm guessing I might like it better.

Great photo... don't know if this for real or posed, but it's very funny, and I like the cropping

LOL! I love this one! Took me a sec to catch the name tag but it's great! Did this really happen or was it staged?

As for the picture itself, seems just a bit fuzzy, could have been sharpened just a tad?

Congratulations on being one of the few who really know what irony means!

nice idea, but took me a while to get it cos it's kind of fuzzy and also a rather busy composition. shame, cos it's a farily nice idea. if it didn't have the title I'd stil be lost.

how funny! Nice cropping and composition.

I like the positioning of the badge. Visible enough to portray the message yet not centered so much to look overly blatant. I would have widened the shot a bit and had the subject put on more of a "good grief" expression. She looks almost humored at the fact that she is being cited. (Which is also ironic ;) )

Funny! Is this for real or a set up? There are so many good ideas in this challenge.

Wow, someone who actually knows what Irony means. Great job. I wish the nametag was a little more prominent.
