Great photo. Very funny too.

This is funny :-)) Great clarity and sharpness. But a bit too tightly cropped IMO. You need a slightly more white space on the laft side and on the bottom to balance it off. Other than that, this is almost sotck art quality and idea.

I can imagine how embarassing that must be. She forgot to shave her legs!

Hehehe, just no pants or completely nude? :) This can be a nightmare for sure, a very bad dream that I'm sure we have all had, mine was to go to school in my pajamas which I accidently did one day (forgot to change my top!). The shot is well done, the cropping is good, the cut off at the knees is very nice, leaves one looking up for more. The background is a bit wanting for me, too stark, maybe if it was an office setting, rug, with a chair behind him it would be more appealing overall.

LOL, that's halarious. I think everyone has had this "dream" going to work and forgetting to put their pants on! Excellent idea, and well done on top of that. 8.

This is funny. I hope this never happens to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/08/2003 09:45:52 PM
LOVE IT! This is a nightmare to which I can relate (even though I'm a woman, and my nightmare would look a bit different). Excellent entry to the challenge. My shoes are never that polished. I like the little gold band at the top of the socks. ~10

Brilliant!

Great idea, not sure about the white background..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Funny. Good job. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2003 03:50:39 PM
Hehe-great idea and photo. One crit would be the crop of the left toe. Other than that-great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2003 01:15:33 PM
Well done and interesting view of nightmare. Most choose to go very dark, this makes a clear statement and the sort of picture more likely to be found in a poster etc.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/07/2003 11:05:55 AM
Great job! Wish the toe in the lower right hadn't been clipped, but I won't be picky this time. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 10:47:39 PM
LOL.. this is wonderful. I've had this dream many times. The plain white background works well. I think it could have been a little better if the tip of the shoe wasn't cut off. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 09:10:55 PM
This is almost perfect, but you cut off the guys left foot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 07:16:22 PM
I must say this gave me a good chuckle. Delightful imagination and wonderful humor here ..the white added the dream effect to me good job

You know, it's not as bad as that, but I have actually woken up and gone to class completely forgetting my glasses until I realize that everything is blurry. I guess that just tells you that you need more sleep, as with this guy here. Funny picture.

By far the most unique and original entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 03:06:16 PM
Haha! Excellent! I've had a few dreams along these lines myself. Very nice I gave it a 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 01:17:19 PM
Heavens - this is the third dream that I've had - Everyone is watching my nightmares. This is Great! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 01:14:15 PM
You get maximum humor points!! Great job at blowing out the background! If I can find any negative comment to give, it would be the reflection of the light on the toe of the shoes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 12:11:02 PM
good one. I like the level and angle. Good color clarity. Fun photo, I think we've all probably dreamed this one before....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 11:11:54 AM
Great comical picture, with a lot of impact. Fantastic burnt out background. Good composition. Very imaginative. Shame about the glare on the shoes, but this is really a minor point. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 11:05:34 AM
lol This is a hoot. Wonderfully done. Only negative comment is the tight crop on the lower right. All in all this is fun, well executed and right on target for the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 09:54:08 AM
Great one! I love it! Beautifully executed. I can't help but relate and laugh! I just wish the shoe wasn't cut off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 06:38:22 AM
What a nightmare! Has it ever happened to you :-) Never happened to me either, thank goodness. Very good submission, only wish you had the whole shoe in the pic and not cropped out - 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 05:50:12 AM
very funny 8

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2003 12:34:50 AM
Clever. And thank you for cropping the photo at the knees. ;)
