Good idea, and well executed.

Very nice shot! Congratulations!

Good sharpenss and use of colour. Great use of lighting and background. I would have positioned the camera more to the right and the hammer more to the left for a better composition (IMO).

OMG, when I first saw this shot I thought to myself, "YIKES!!!!!!!!!!" As I come back to the shot I am amazed and curious how this is done without smashing the camera and I hope you do provide an answer!

As for the picture, the motion of the hammer to the clarity of the camera is wonderful, the lighting is a little bright for my taste and the background could be slightly darker to make it perfect for me.

I think i actually shouted out "NOOOOOOOOOO" when i saw this for the first time.. briliantly emotive.. a fear close to all of our hearts.. top marks.

I'm assuming from the shadow and the the lack of a smashed camera that you started with the hammer on the camera and yanked it away after a short delay....Nice work!

You are tugging at the emotional heartstrings of the DPCers! Good one you LOL. Nice motion in the hammer, good colors too.

I was on the way home tonight and was thinking of the next challenge...A bridge..I would shoot down at something...My camera slips from my fingers and crashes fifty feet below...your image? yes nightmare! an 8 for that...the color of background hurts this for me though -1 total 7

Very nice shot!
10/06/2003 07:04:56 PM
Yeah, that does look like a painful nightmare.
10/06/2003 03:09:18 PM
Now that would be a nightmare!! lol, great humor and a descent shot too.
10/06/2003 02:27:04 PM
The yellow adds to the nightmare... great interpretation and shot.
10/06/2003 02:12:13 PM
Your background color is an interesting choice, as it gives the whole photo a happy feeling. Nice idea and creative interpretation of the challenge.
10/06/2003 06:36:31 AM
Agh! I can't even look at this without cringing. How painfull! I'll give you an 8 and move on quickly to the next pic :-)

Lol, very amusing. I don't like the orange background... it's too close to the colours you get when shooting in artificial light with daylight white balance. Shame about the circular reflection in front of the lens, and about the glare on the body. Great idea and motion blur. 6

I love the yellow background in this shot...really makes the image stand out.
