Its funny how people like you are ready to cuss and badmouth one of the greatest drivers of all time for absolutely no reason? Has the guy done something to you personally, probably not... mostly likely because he can drive and you cannot.

Actually the F1 world is divided on Michael Schumacher. No one denies he's the great F1 driver ever, but personally I don't like him. He's arrogant and has a reputation for winning at ANY cost. He has broken the rules several times and brought the sport and spirit of F1 into disruppet many times.

The bird is a manifestation of the how several fans (including myself) have felt about his antics influencing the outcome of races that he just didn't deserve to win.

I don't really see the Bokeh here and I don't get your title. Not trying to be critical, but I don't know racing and I'm assuming Schumacher is the driver. I'm not offended by "the bird", but it doesn't enhance the picture for me.

Interesting!

Pan, pan, pan!

Disrespecting the worlds greatest racing driver wont get you many points. Tasteless. -1-

Wish I understood the significance of the hand gesture. It is the end of an era in racing with Schumacher's parting.
10/26/2006 06:07:50 PM
Unnecessary

Maybe somebody would want this hanging on their wall, but it just does nothing for me. Don't really like the pole going through the car, and I am not sure this is bokeh.

I guess if I knew who Schumaker was this might have more impact. As it is though it leaves me wanting to go look at another picture. In the end - the foreground bokeh is not pleasing.

tasteless, hillarious, DNMC, I admire anyone that can make brake rotors glow red hot.
10/26/2006 08:39:34 AM
Sorry, don't see any bokeh here - just an out of focus hand.
10/26/2006 04:44:04 AM
Superb representation of your personal motto.
10/25/2006 04:20:07 PM
this is funny.. but somehow I am more diverted from the in-focus object to the out-of-focus one!

There's really nothing artful about this image. I "get it," but the composition, light, subject matter - none of it has any appeal, particularly in a competition. Hope this is helpful. People complain that the lower scoring images don't get remarks, so......
10/25/2006 09:18:30 AM
Ok... The bokeh is not the greatest and the hand gesture made you get only a 1. There you go.
10/25/2006 05:01:45 AM
no bokeh to be seen in this snapshot

lol - Not sure how many people will get this due to the US based audience but made me laugh. You got to see a pretty decent race overall though :-) - Anything of the crowd? Shame about the fense but it is what it is without a press pass.
