Good idea. Nice uncluttered composition. The string lieading out of the picture allows my mind to imagine what's on the other side. Good choice for black and white.

I love the string coming out toward the viewer and the DOF on the string itself. Good composition, great light and shadows and the door knob is well positioned.

Great original idea! But isn't the string a bit thick?
08/30/2002 01:41:00 PM
Great concept and well pulled off! The doornob is perfect. 9 Swash

how you would ever get that rope around a tooth is beyond me ' - ) this is a nice composition and the black and white works well. (6) ~mcmurma

Not one of the more pleasant parts of childhood, but definnitely conveys the theme very well. Excellent work.
08/29/2002 01:21:00 PM
autsch! ;o)

I like this one - what's on the end of the string? Great framing and a very well conceived shot. 9 - floyd

This might have been a little more efffective if you had used a smaller string, as opposed to a cord that is too big to fit around a baby tooth. Overall this is a very amusing childhood photo though. 7 BAMartin

It's one of those pictures that makes ones eyes water… The shot itself is very well composed and my only gripe is the reflected flash in the door handle. Other than that – it works really well. (8)

Excellent idea. I had a similar one but I wanted a tooth in mine. When I couldn't find one, I tried something else.

Out of all the photos, this is the one that really hits home with me. My father always wanted to pull out our loose teeth by tying a string to the doorknob. Great visual. I like that it is b&w. This photo brings out a smile and a quiver!
08/28/2002 11:57:00 AM
well composed..brings back memories

This photo scores well with me purely on creativity :) This photo also demonstrates a great childhood fear. I don't know if there would be a better way to light this photo or not... it appears that a flash was used. The dark shadow behind the string hanging from the door knob makes a nice contrast, but the glare on the door knob is just a bit harsh. Natural lighting of some sort may have improved this one overall... good shot! = 8 - jmsetzler

i like the image...it takes a while to understand it....i like the image i think better as an abstract image rather than relating to the tooth pulling of childhood.

08/27/2002 06:40:00 PM
OUCH! Good idea.
08/27/2002 04:50:00 PM
Brilliant idea. The shadow from the flash detracts a little. Over all this is very good.
08/27/2002 01:07:00 PM
yup. I relate. when I was really little dad tried everything he could to yank them teeth out, but in 5th grade, I still had baby teeth and then they wouldn't stop falling out in class. it was aweful. anyway, I love the angle here and I think black and white fits pretty good, considering all attention is on that door. Great idea. Good luck in the challenge.
08/27/2002 05:53:00 AM
EEK! I can feel this in the pit of my stomach. My Dad always threatened to do this and the thought scared me to death. Good composition and lighting. Interesting perspective on "childhood". lhall

Boy I remember this trick! Very original idea. Good choice.
08/26/2002 08:10:00 PM
Great shot.
08/26/2002 06:31:00 PM
been there done that - ouch!!
08/26/2002 06:22:00 PM
Nice focus on this one! Mmm..hope it's not your tooth on the other side of the rope ? I tried this once and i can tell not a very good idea ;-)
Like the picture, really brings back a memory (i almost forgot...)

True humor, I love it!
08/26/2002 04:16:00 PM
This one gave me goosebumps! Very well captured. Also, nice balance of light and dark, and well cropped (not too much or too little extra detail) 9.
08/26/2002 03:45:00 PM
This is a great idea that I can really relate to! I don't usually like B&W and most of the "childhood" B&W photos are kind of depressing. This one isn't! It made me smile ';<D
08/26/2002 01:33:00 PM
Boy, this brings back a flood of emotions..... But I think your string is a little big to fit arround a tooth...
08/26/2002 11:36:00 AM
Ouch! This is a memory I'd blocked out. Great idea
08/26/2002 11:30:00 AM
More creative than most
08/26/2002 10:45:00 AM
Good job! I feel that B & W made this photo. Creative and weel done.
08/26/2002 07:42:00 AM
Very good composition......love the B&W too. Score 7 Kee
08/26/2002 06:25:00 AM
Too funny! Great idea, love the black and white.
08/26/2002 02:08:00 AM
This is a really good interpretation of the challenge. Thank god I never did this. Good composition and DOF. 9.
08/26/2002 01:22:00 AM
too funny!
08/26/2002 01:13:00 AM
great perspective.. low for a kid, good good.. .. great b&w.. 10!
08/26/2002 12:50:00 AM
This says childhood better than any other photo I've seen. Great imagination. Excellent quality. Lighting slightly distracting =9 syamjonimi
