aiming for the brown on this one. not sure if i got it bad enough for sub 2.5 which is what i want.


it is actually me touching my nipple. the shot kept coming out too good so i used a timer then focused and ran towards the camera. BTW the title was misspelled on purpose to get more negative votes.

I hope you hate it:)

I am sorry that so many commentors wasted their time during voting. see this thread

maybe ill have to aim for a brown ribbon sometime, i think its the only ribbon i can actually achieve lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/05/2007 02:02:50 AM
hahaha... I was going to say Brown Ribbon, but didn't want to hurt someone's feelings if they weren't really...

nice, I thought it was an ear or something... but imagining you running toward the camera with your finger on your nipple makes me laugh

02/05/2007 02:01:40 AM
Your aim is true! Sorry I gave it a 10. ...just kidding - I'm no anti-troll! :)

Is this the elbow trick?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 09:41:26 PM
I wanted to explain the 3 rating I am giving this photo. It has several problems: it is too small to really see what is going on; it is out of focus; it is not clear what is going on; the title has misspellings that show a lack of attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 09:16:33 PM
I wish I could see what you were pushing on....I would assume it was either a nipple or a belly button but I can't quite tell!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 07:45:07 PM
This is just too abstract for my liking and is way too small to get an appreciation for what it is supposed to be. The spelling error in the title will probably lose you some score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 05:29:11 PM
There's no detail in this image, I don't know what I'm looking at, nor am I interested in what IS being shown. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 03:37:03 PM
spelt worng!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/04/2007 12:48:29 AM
To out of focus, I can't tell what you trying to show.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 11:51:17 PM
Not even sure what this is. Is it intended to be completely out of focus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/03/2007 09:31:12 PM
just vote low. lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 08:30:17 AM
The obvious - Way small, blurry, and unrecognizable! Check out the LEARN area of DPC. The Tutorials and the "How'd they do that" sections are extremely helpful! I go there often!
PS - The misspelled word in your title doesn't help either.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 01:46:57 AM
Uhhhhh.......focus out just a bit????
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2007 01:20:53 AM
too small to really comment and looks blurred

i already saw the thumbnail, now i need to see the image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 09:54:51 PM
I gonna give 10, just because no one else will do it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 09:34:25 PM

Sorry but this is to small and out of focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.

this is too small and blurry to vote and write an opinion, sorry.

Congrats!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 07:39:05 AM
out of focus, too small, hardly recognizable. not even the title is spelled right
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 12:27:00 AM
Too small, too abstract. It's hard to even tell what this is because of the size, but it looks like a cool concept if it were executed better! I would encourage you to do a re-shoot! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 08:32:12 PM
Too small
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 08:08:53 PM
Very interesting. The miss spelling is clever. I can hear the photo scream out to me with delight. The small out of focus photo challenges the imagination and dares the viewer to think outside of the box. Anybody that rates this photo less than a 10 doesn't understand your genious.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 04:09:42 PM
too small and oof... and the spelling of the title is wrong.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 03:26:17 PM
Small, out of focus, undefined subject, mistyped title. Try to have the camera on a sturdy tripod or table when in low light conditions
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 02:56:24 PM
HI, Not sure if the spelling is on purpose, but I think you are going to get marked down on pic size. Also the image seems just too soft.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 02:43:24 PM
Sorry, but this is too small and too blurry. Try following the tutorial on prepping shots for DPC: //www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=26
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 02:01:03 PM
Terrible quality. Impossible to make out what's going on here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 11:00:33 AM
Too small, too fuzzy, poorly framed and a spell checker would help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/30/2007 07:59:46 AM
image is to small and out of focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 11:20:51 PM
Awe! way too small :(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:28:10 PM
i dont get it...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:23:14 PM
Hmmm, I'm sure you are getting tons of comments about it being too small and blury. Your lighting is good though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:16:33 PM
Too small to even tell where or what your touching...as well as oof.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:50:22 PM
Too small, out of focus and the title is misspelled.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:23:58 PM
I think it could be alittle more defined...too blurry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:55:35 PM
spelling / size / focus .....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:36:16 PM
Another one I just don't get plus this is way too small
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:33:23 PM
a little too abstract for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:20:33 PM
Too small; poor composition/cropping and too soft of focus results in no distinct point of interest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:15:54 PM
I'm sure everyone will say the same thing. The photo is out of focus, it's too small, the title is badly misspelled and what is this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:19:09 PM
2 spelling errors in the title, and a small, out of focus image of an obscure body form. I think I can identify whats going on here, but really, who knows?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:51:50 PM
Small and blurry, no idea what it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 03:54:15 PM
Seems a bit blurry. Also tiny. 160 pixels across is really not enough. Check the tutorials section for resizing hints. 4
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:45:16 PM
Oh shti.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 02:25:20 PM
I hope I'm safe in assuming that this is one of your first submissions. I am basing the following critique on that assumption. The members here are big fans of photography and most have very large monitors to view their craft. An image this size is often criticized because it shows up as only slightly larger than a thumbnail and all detail is lost. Many members (myself included) encourage everyone to use the full 680 pixels they are alloted so that we can better see what it is you are shooting. As far as the image is concerned, it is out of focus and you can barely see your subject. That would be OK in a more abstract challenge, but since this one is "nude", the viewers expect to see a "nude" subject. Granted, the body does not have to be fully "exposed", but nudity should at the very least be implied. You should also check your spelling before submitting an image. There are times when spelling is not as important, but when it comes to titles of artwork, people are kind of picky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:13:03 PM
Out of Focus - Too Small - due to both of these I have to presume what the picture is which doesnt kind of work for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:50:28 PM
ok I am not sure if this is a nipple or a belly button. Plus the size and the softness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:42:20 PM
sorry, but this is terribly out of focus, and the title is mis-spelled.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:26:05 PM
While I understand the title the picture is just too small and soft to really give it high marks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:35:45 AM
Small, Out-of-focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 10:29:09 AM
Way too blurry, I could hardly make out the finger.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:54:52 AM
Way way to smalll... can't guess nothing out of this presentation..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 09:15:04 AM
probably somebody has commented on this before but:
1) it's "just"
2) it's "here"
3) this picture is wayyyyy too small. it's so small it's hard to criticize any other component of it other than its extreme smallness. if you need help resizing pictures to be the correct size or if you have any questions send me a message but i'd recommend checking out the "tutorials" section
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 08:51:36 AM
I sense an attempt for the brown ribbon...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:22:23 AM
should be bigger, can't really tell what it is...just my opinion
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 07:05:36 AM
so soft ...so small..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 05:33:15 AM
Small, out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:55:12 AM
I've spent at least 5 minutes trying to work this one out. I'm male and I'm not aware of anything on my body that resembles this. I've made an intimate study of the female anatomy as well and draw a blank on that score too. Please enlighten me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 04:34:00 AM
need to focus the camera or is it camera shake ?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Exceptionally small image makes it difficult to view or appreciate.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:40:23 AM
Sorry.. that's waay too small, flat lit, and out of focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:35:58 AM
A little on the small size ....don't suppose I'm the first to mention that. It's a good idea to use the full amount of pixels allowed so people can get a good look at your image.

Kudos on entering this challenge. Good luck with the next one.

01/29/2007 01:20:20 AM

oof, too small, not interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:12:38 AM
title has spelling errors - lighting is bad - subject is not appealing - focus is very bad
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 01:06:52 AM
A larger and more in focus photo would help.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:44:04 AM
OOF, too small, have NO idea what this is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:42:29 AM
what were you thinking? The image is small, bleary and your title should be just press here. better luck on future challenges.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:37:52 AM
you jest!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:22:40 AM
I like the soft focus and the lighting. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:22:17 AM
well, very small, WAY oof, bad spelling.....1
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:19:37 AM
Too small and too hard to identify
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/29/2007 12:14:47 AM
I'm not sure what you are really trying to accomplish here. You picture is a little too blurry to see what it really is but maybe if it was a bit larger you could tell what is going on here. You can choose a picture up to 640 pixels so you might want to try that next time. Also you misspelled the word just. Good luck and keep it up. It takes a lot of practice to get to the top and I and still soooooo far away but my advice is from what I have learned. Good luck.
