You would think that if someone didn't know what it was they would google it instead of saying "I don't understand" and giving a low score. I really appreciated this as this is what took my grandmother's vision. Great job!

I found this to be a very creative entry, and appreciate the message. I think the lighting could be stronger, but overall a provocative and interesting photo.

A great creative interpretation. Don't let the score get you down.

i think the problem was that a lot of people don't know what macular degeneration is, i did not vote but if i did i probably would have giving it a 9.

Would have had the hole in the middle more fuzzy (you can see the cutting) and the background more homogenic. Otherwise a good idea.

Thought provoking

The circle is a little rough, which takes away from this a bit, but the idea behind it is absolutely brilliant for the occupation.

Really nice skin detail in the neck. However, I know the grey dot is supposed to be there, but for me it just seems to ruin the image. Maybe a grumpy face drawn on it, or even eye holes or something.

great idea, nice colors, good lighting. would have liked fuzzier edge on greyed circle, in post processing

i must not be too bright because i don't get this.
12/25/2006 06:08:58 PM
Dont like the big gray blob....it takes away a lot from the picture.
12/25/2006 02:39:27 AM
i'm not sure i understand
12/25/2006 02:33:44 AM
okay...have no idea what this means and what "macular degeneration" is...but intriguing composition.
