Okay so I know this is basic edited and we really can't do much here so I have a pretty good feeling that I will get a low 4. It never fails. Anyway here goes nothing. I really don't like this shot as much as I did when it was in my head. I had pictured this spank stick "which I really use" in a case that normally holds a fire axe. On the front, it says, "In case of emergency break glass". Well when I went to put my spank stick in there I noticed a small note on the front that said something along the lines of "$5000 fine for tempering with fire equipment" so I decided that I would leave that alone.

Set up is a picture frame on a small 2x2' of sheetrock and the spank stick screwed in the back to hold it. I have a 150W work light hanging from my ceiling fan.
Post proc. - Rotate 90 CCW, Crop edges, brightness and contrast, Resize, Save for web.

This is funny. I don't care for the light, would have been nice if it was really even accross the sides. Very nice idea.

I get the idea but the image is not apealing. As I've seen on this site and from my own entries, even the joke pics must be artsy. - Update: ok, 2 MORE points for joke

i like the way you have the stick labeled and the frame around adds boldness to the picture nicely done

funny, but just bad. Weird angle, bad lighting.

I think I would have tried a parallel shot instead of having the perspective slope away from us. 5

ok! definitely the most interesting approach to this challenge. The shot would of been more interesting if the glass was actually cracked or broken.

I will not support hitting children in any way, shape or form - even if it is meant to be humorous. It is just not right and definitely not funny.
