So I have visited the GrandWaz's portfolio for awhile and I see this 9th place entry and just wanna say congrats! I see some technical details in your notes, but no friggin explanation of what I am looking at! ;-) Is that you? Do you have 'big hand gloves' ?? (gotta get me some) and you have a big cage? Could use one of those too.

Nice job man!

Congratulations on your 9th place finish!
I'm glad you told us how you made the cage.
One question: Did your boss catch you at this? :)
OK...two questions: Why do you need giant hands at work?
Wondering about your occupation...

This kicks ass! should have finished higher. way to go man, great vision on this.

Yeah the cage is crazy! At work we get these in with a plastic lining and they hold silicone. We took out the lining on two of them and I inverted one on the other to make a perfect, weird cage.

Pretty cool cage, I dig this shot, very surreal. 7

Exceedingly creative and spooky without going overboard. Would be interesting to see this photo with a less saturated and prominent sky. 8.

Well done! Top 10 here. 9

This has a Pink Floyd spirit in it.

12/23/2006 07:23:33 AM
Appropriately odd, that's for sure! So how did you get your hands on the cage?!

This is incredible. As far as I'm concerned, this should be the blue ribbon. Good luck 10

Umm, okay... :)

This makes me think of primus for some reason - The cage thing is just bizarre - I can't tell if this is life-size. Just random thoughts I suppose - it's defintely intriguing and fits the Pink Floyd theme - the only thing I might alter would be the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2006 12:18:15 PM
can I borrow that cage? great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2006 02:29:51 AM
Well I tried to comment before and my computer didn't send it through (I think) so hope I am not repeating anything...

I think this shot is great. My top pick of the challenge. Love the perspective, dramatic sky and of course the cage (which I am so curious as to who has a cage like that on hand?)

If there were anything I'd suggest for improvement I'd say maybe a different pose and perhaps a way to incorperate more colors.

purty darn creative...foresee a ribbon comin on this..gl 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 07:36:02 PM
hands like balloons, the gas mask the cage - well displayed against the blue and white sky - magritte-like. Works well. The composition is a little busy for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 06:48:58 PM
Wow this is great. I love the sky in the background and the difference between the silver of the cage and the blue of the sky. I like it alot 9

12/20/2006 04:31:42 PM
Where did you find such a cage? Very cool...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 02:10:24 PM
hah. cool picture. very well executed.!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2006 12:13:27 PM
this is so cool but for the giant hands. White cotton gloves would have been much more subtle, much more "pink floyd". but everything else is a home run - great work - 9

Sheesh...you really went ALL out! Gotta' give you a ten...a lot of work went into this and I hope everyone appreciates it.

Done voting, this must be top ten maybe even ribbon. Best of luck :-)

Excellent photo... bet you would have felt silly if you had thrown that cage away when cleaning out your garage last spring. it's a niner...
