  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 02:25:23 AM
Jorge, there's no question you're a very talented photographer and you know your craft well. What's more important (and more delightful, I might add) is you have a wonderful imagination! I truly admire your ability to take a vision (and to have one in the first place) and make it real. I do hope your audience is wider than just DPC voters.

Congratulations Jorge. Your colors, lighting and composition are masterful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 01:25:19 AM
Alright, this is unfair! Not only did I pull this one for critique, but I also snagged librido's entry. I apologize that I have nothing to offer in the form of a thoughtful critique. You obviously have your hand on the pulse of the voters, and your work is well above my ability to provide feedback. I had a strong feeling that this would blue the second that it popped up on my monitor. Truly amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 01:05:28 AM
Congratulations on your blue, this is a great shot and what a clever idea, how did you ever come up with this! Very well deserved win.

05/20/2007 02:14:16 PM
My pick for the blue ribbon ... very creative, title goes great with the image, actually looks like an album cover, and where you found (or created) that super long noodle lace is anyone's guess! 10

Not the first time I've recognized a "Chema Madoz," but the execution and challenge connection are perfect. Very likely a ribbon. 10

The devoted pasta lovers were known as the best (only?) Italian house music band of the 90's. Interestingly enough, they really couldn't dance. In fact, it was when they were spotted in the Limelight trying to dance that their songs stopped selling.

05/16/2007 07:30:01 AM
Great idea. Is that really pasta in the shoes? Dont know about the title of the group, but I enjoy the image/cover. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2007 01:32:28 AM
Wowsers, this is an awesome entry for the challenge. First, it's a really great photo. Visually, very appealing, technically very well done. Secondly, it's a good name, that works. Then, the album title, along with the name, and the concept of the image, all ties together and works great. The design is very good, I can really see this as an album cover, you should design them for real! :-) The colors all work great. I love how you've got the noodle laces of both shoes all tied together, it really drives the whole concept home. Super job! High score from me :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2007 10:58:06 PM

COOOOOOOOL composition, cant dance? I can see why, your laces are tied. Great focus and detail. Fab colour and title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2007 06:05:53 PM
You've pulled all the elements I think should be there - strong photograph that I could see on an album, text compliments the shot, album title is on the cover, DPL acronym makes fairly good sense as a 3-word band, roughly square, layout is creative/clever... One of my ribbon picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2007 03:53:35 PM
This looks like a Scalvert. Very creative. Great color scheme!
