alternate title: "Looks Like We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat"

If I had mad PhotoShop skillz, I'd add Jaws jumping out of the water. Or maybe just the dorsal fin for subtlety.

The lake was like glass on Thanksgiving. And I totally forgot to change the ISO before shooting.

This photo doesn't do much to capture the viewer's interest.

I like the fact that nothing's in focus here... Makes me wonder what I should be looking at, which I guess is the point of the photo.

This needs an open-mouth shark or at least a fin on the horizon :) As for the technical aspect, the lighting is a bit too bright. A little later in the day would have been better.

Good'un! Evocative of the "Jaws" series.

Nice idea. A couple of small complaints - the detail is lost in both the highlights and in the shadow. This picture could've been more interesting if you'd thrown a stone in the water to make a splash or some ripples

Umm, what's the point? Sorry, this isn't working for me. Those words meet the ironic nature of the challenge, but did you mean to show something unpleasant happening after they were uttered?

I don't get it. Which part of this picture is supposed to be in focus?

I think the impact would have been more if there was a bit more perspective and a focal object..
