The focus seems soft, the lighting is also to soft, and the equation doesn't make sence to me..... 2 mickies - ice + honey - heat(?) = what? a cocktail I don't know?
Sorry.

Fantastically clever. The lighting could be better tho.

Small problem. There's a K in mickey, isn't there?
12/08/2003 10:25:54 PM
Kind of confusing, at first I didn't get the "mice" thing I was thinking Mickey since both mice are mickey, anyway unique idea, photo seems a little dark to me though.

I love it. Only wish the background had been lighter. Think the bottom row would have stood out better. Stil love it.

lol, very interesting. creative interpretation of the challenge. Seems a little low in contrast, maybe playing with levels and such would give more life to the subjects.

It works! You really put some thought into this photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Funny! And tricky. Unfortunately you don't have anywhere near enough light. You are soft on focus, dull on color and flat. All can be fixed with LIGHT!

Technical: Fits the challenge after a fashion- that takes some thought ;-). A little underexposed, composition fits the subject, focus is good, lighting is flat.

Personal: Pretty creative, some might not get it. I think you're reaching :-)

My vote: 6

Clever...the photo was interesting enough to make me stop and figure it out.

Good word puzzle I like the detail.

Mickey - ice = mky
Honeybear - H = oneybear.

mky oneybear??? I don't get it. (Just kidding) Cute concept and beautifully interpreted.

clever, but shot somewhat dull.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2003 08:49:50 AM
Very clever. A little bit too dark I think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh superb. Nevermind what I was going to say about sharpness and lighting. Excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2003 10:31:18 PM
Very unique idea. try a different background to make things show up more.

Monkey? OH money! Great! Yes, I do like it. 9

Clever idea, but it could use a bit of brightening up by adjusting the levels or brightness and contrast.

Funny and clever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ooh. Haven't seen a Rebus in a long time. Very Clever. Photo would benefit from a little better color saturation - as it is, it seems a little flat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow--you're lucky. I almost gave this a low score without really looking. Now I see it--very clever. The concept is great, but technically the photo needs some work. The lighting makes all the props look washed out, and sharpness could be better. You'd get an 8 for the concept and a 4 for the photography aspect, so I'm giving you a 6.

Very original - points for that. The overall effect it a bit dark and flat, focus good

Funny!

I'm assuming your going for Mickey here... Mickey - ice (i'm assuming) = Mky + Honey = MkyHoney - H = Mkyoney... I'm confused. Nice try though... good pic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2003 02:43:30 AM
Mice minus ice plus honey minus h. Clever :)
