This will not make any sense to DPC'ers who aren't from the U.S... and it may go over the heads of some folks here, too. This is election week, and after enduring hours and hours of campaign commercials, I thought I'd make my own pretend campaign shot.

A solid 4.

I really expected to see this in the top ten. 22nd place isn't all bad either though.

This was in my top 5 and I would surely vote for you.
:)
Great shot by the way - your eyes made this shot!

He, he, I was watching a Colbert Report rerun (duh, I'm bored) this morning, and it reminded me of this picture. Funny.

More like a rock solid 6.5, Alan! You got my vote! Congrats on a strong finish. Now didn't you promise to lower my taxes? :)

A very good entry with that overall political feel even in its fine presentation. Good work, Alan.

Excellent concept; well-executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2006 02:38:35 PM
what message? the look on your fac makes me think you're being sarcastic ;-)

I think the flag is a bit too much in focus still, a smaller DoF would've worked here.

HAHA!! Great shot! I love your serious eyebrow! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 06:12:22 PM
I like this photo..especially with all the election talk going on lately. Very unique! The only critique I have to say is...what color was your shirt? Is it white, and just looks light blue? If it is light blue, I wish you would have worn a white shirt, as it distracted me. Good job overall!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 03:38:33 PM
Outstanding definition and as good as it gets color balance to complement this lovely exposure. The good display of sense of humor along with that eagle gaze wns the moment. Big bump. 7

It seems a poster for a electoral campaign! perhaps the correct title was "vote for me, vote for me, vote for me....." :) 10

Man, are you wearin' lipstick? Love the expression. We can see your top button.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 10:21:12 PM
The eyebrow really puts this over the top. Great shot with a sense of humor to boot. :-)

  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 11:40:44 AM
You haven't been the one calling me all weekend asking for my vote, are you??? Seriously though, good shot. I think it may be cropped in a little to tight as I would have liked to see the hair not cut off. Cool look in the eyes though... it really draws attention.
