I might get some rough comments from the gents for this, but I just HAD to!!

Its me and 2 of my neighbors, shot in my studio.

:D Thanks so much for the scores and comments, guys. My neighbors, Clay in the middle and Bill on the end are as happy as I am! They were so sweet to do this for me and we all laughed our butts off at the concept. So glad it came across in the image and caused a few laughs among this community too. Cheers! Cindi.

Way to go, captain! You just better hope this depiction of the primitive nature of men doesn't cause a backlash against your leadership in Team 20D :-)

It takes a superior person to let the other think they are superior at times. The above statement is approved by both sexes since it doesn't take sides. This only clarifies that this photo indicated a battle for superiority of the sexes, and that this Does meet the photo challenge.

This photo maybe a ribbon winner, but it only indicates what the other half longs for. The battle never ends.
I would heve named it "Evolution - Devolution" like a local Akron band Devo, started.

As always, you are a great photographer, Cindi!

IMHO, you are also a great philosopher/sociologist for you have depicted the social transformation of the last half of the twentieth century in the U.S. and most technologically advanced countries.

This is the light-hearted creativity I have come to expect out of you, especially in areas that have the potential for volatility. Being quick-witted, humorous, and universally likable, you defuse the situation by redirecting the potential-energy toward consistent high scores.

Bottom Line: I gain wisdom when I watch & learn. :)

Congratulations Cindi. I think it's a great shot, definitely one of the most imaginative in the challenge. But even after seeing all the self-portrait shots of you -- I would have never recognized you in profile.

Very cute and a fun idea. Back to bump you up to 9 and my guess is you've got a ribbon - perhaps THE ribbon. Nice job!

That is so wrong!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 02:30:01 PM
Great concept, murky shadows and lack of back lighting on left leave the image flat. It directly takes away from the punch line. She should have more space in front of her and be well-defined against the background.
