I almost got in trouble for this shot. They weren't too impressed with me having a camera in the store when I took the picture
I had a few shots but tossed the obviously cliche playground and toy store shots...I took this and i think it came out pretty good.

Looks like a photo of a box. Not real difficult. I could be wrong. I mean, you did a great job keeping glare out of the photo and I was also thinking that this COULD be a photo of an actual barbie with a transparency in front of it with the word barbie written on it. that would be a little more creative. I guess I"ll find out tonight. Lighting is beautiful by the way and I love how it fills the frame. good luck in the challenge.

I'm pretty sure this is a photo of a picture. So I can't give you a good score for the technical aspects because these were not decided by you.

Is this a photo someone took with a camera? With that logo on it?

This must be a picture of a picture. Naff.

It's a good subject matter but I fear you're going to get blasted for taking a picture of a picture.

good idea but this appears to be a picture of a picture. i think you could have been a little more creative with this.

Better if you´ve took a Barbie Doll and shot her only. Not like you´ve done here Take a Box and it´s a chance to be disqua.... if you take like you did picture of picture . But I give it (7) thou

Is this a photo you took of a doll or a photo of somebody else's photo on a box? Also, is that a small dent on Barbie's forehead? Regardless, I like this photo and it seemed to generate some positive feelings in me about childhood.
08/26/2002 05:53:00 PM
This looks like you took the picture from the box itself.
08/26/2002 05:42:00 PM
Is this a shot of the box? The photo seems to degrade in quality above her eyebrows...
08/26/2002 02:50:00 PM
I loved her so much when I was about 7 years old. WOW good shot. Score 7 Justine

a photo of a photo? c'mon...
08/26/2002 12:29:00 PM
It's an object photo, have no feelings toward it...
08/26/2002 11:51:00 AM
Oh, this one appeals to me lots! What a good portrait. Of course this reflects my childhood... I always wanted to be "Barbie" when I grew up. Andcouldn't be further from...

looks kinda like an ad, but i'll believe you on this.

Beautiful Barbie....A childhood staple for girls since 1964. Beautifully done. Was this taken through the package? There appears to be a scar in the top canter of her forehead. It may have been on the actual packaging.......=8 syamjonimi
