Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Sports III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Location: Surface of football helmut in Cleveland, Ohio?
Date: May 1, 2007
Galleries: Humorous, Sports
Date Uploaded: May 2, 2007

entered as a bit of quirky humor in relation to the Cleveland Browns, as an honest attempt (successful albeit) for the "brown" ribbon on DPC for the Sports III challenge. Thanks for all the #1 votes! Though I didn't make the lowest DPC 10 worst scoring photos of all time, I've enjoyed the comments and the LOL humor from those who weighed in on this oddity of an entry.

This is a truly great brown shot. You beat some really stiff competition in this challenge. Congrats!

You should have taken a little more time with accuracy in your color.
Prior to the year 2000, the Orange color, in hex value, was fe4101.
From 2000 until present, it is df6108. Your entry was e85100.

Close, but no field goal.

I've been there a few times, and I recall the orange being a little brighter. Nice use of color. I would have rated you higher if you titled it "A Cleveland Brown Closeup". I wish you the best of luck.

UPDATE: I was wrong... I bumped up your score. Again. Best of luck!

Not sure what was the attempt at. Unclear of subject. Just looks like a color swatch.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2007 11:12:31 AM
I re-loaded this twice to make sure it wasn't my browser that was acting strange. Did you mean to submit this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2007 01:50:13 AM
Get real
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2007 11:08:17 PM
HMM I dont really know what to say. I'm confused by the subject here and the photo is much too small. Please remember to use the full 640 px to help your entry.

Out of focus, No DOF, Horizon is not level and there is a dog on the field... 2

Too bad quality...

What kind of sport is this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2007 02:51:17 AM
Even extremely close up, I don't think this meets the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2007 12:48:07 AM
I think my 1 will fit in there.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 07:53:35 PM
I will not only view but I will vote just to laugh. LOL As Drew would say "Cleveland Rocks, Cleveland Rocks, Cleveland Rocks, OHIO." You know its all Clevelands fault the secondary draft is locked down.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 07:30:45 PM
great DOF, but a little more contrast would have helped.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 03:42:00 PM

Is this a joke? It's not even a photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 10:37:30 AM
I truly hope your going for the brown ribbon. Rather stupid and juvenile IMHO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 10:31:47 AM
i don't get it.... sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 09:48:50 AM
Maybe it's because i'm not from Cleveland, but i've never heard of a sport called "Fill with Orange"? :P
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 09:24:56 AM
Problems with uploading? Hm .. I can't see anything but a orange square ..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 09:14:22 AM
um, not sure what to say?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 08:44:45 AM
Despite being a nice photograph, this entry does not fall within the parameters of this weeks challenge. That being said, I must judge this photograph accordingly. :-(
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 08:07:51 AM
???? clever but not sport
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 07:56:24 AM
You're gonna have to explain this one to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 07:50:08 AM
Nothing sporty about this...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 02:36:25 AM
Not good enough for a Brownie
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 01:43:03 AM
why waste our time?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 01:39:21 AM
are you serious?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 12:36:14 AM
Wait a minute, do I see Brady Quinn in discomfort because he fell to 22nd pick in the draft and still going to make, in his first contract, more than most people make in their lifetimes!! I think I do. great color match.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 12:12:12 AM
aaaaaa....no.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 12:09:37 AM
Too small to tell what it is!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2007 12:07:22 AM
I dont ever do this but BS DQ, prove the camera made a solid color with 0 noise! Lol good luck this isnt the first time ad last time i saw this they got DQ'd for editing.

It is against the rules to remove major elements and or distort the image in a way that it would change the voters definition of the title. That includes bluring it to a solid color.
