I found all of the comments about my photo to be quite humorous. I am well aware that it does not belong in the "ducky" challenge, but I wanted a critique because this photo moves me, and there is no none-challenge way to submit that I know of. This was taken on the shadow side of the structure on a sunny day. Adjustments included, sharpening, contrast, and slight level adjustments. Very slight color enhancement was also used. Thank you.

who the **** gave two 10's for this photo?

10/18/2006 06:22:28 PM
What the duck? :-)
10/18/2006 09:38:42 AM
Yeah, I'd agree it's a well-deserved brown ribbon if you were just looking for a critique. There really is a *point* to having a challenge, and there are free studies you could enter... or just post it to the forums if you want critiques.

The free study would have gotten you a more photographically-targeted set of critiques instead of the current crop of "where's the duck?".

The light is fairly ..interesting, in an odd looking kind of way, what distracts me is the part in the centre just above the light line where the bricks are "broken" by some dark lines. That could be real (gaps) or introudced (during resize or similar).

I spend a full minute looking for the rubber duck. DNMC plain and simple.

10/11/2006 06:16:48 PM

10/11/2006 05:26:20 PM
Maybe it's too cryptic for me. I just cannot see a rubber duck
10/11/2006 04:40:10 PM
Where's the duck? DNMC.
10/11/2006 04:14:24 PM
I'm sorry I don't see a rubber duck and I have no idea what this photo is doing in this challenge.

Okay but.. where's the duck?
10/11/2006 03:23:09 PM

10/11/2006 10:35:34 AM
Ummmm... ok...? I'm sure there's a connection to the challenge in here somewhere. Perhaps someone inside has a duck with them?
10/11/2006 08:29:55 AM
Where's ducky?
10/11/2006 07:45:34 AM

10/11/2006 02:46:51 AM

10/11/2006 01:01:24 AM
...not seeing a duck here... maybe in the clouds or bricks?... still, not a rubber ducky.
10/11/2006 12:34:54 AM
Interesting photo, but I see no connection to the challenge...
10/11/2006 12:24:28 AM
Is there a duck at the top of that thing?
10/11/2006 12:22:55 AM
Eh - whur's the rubber duck?? I'm really straining to see one just in case there really is one here. Is there?
