excellent as usual, the "high-tech" background fills the photo, without it it would definitely be an high 6 photo :-) ... great work.

congratz

Ahhh, so you've got a trained fish and a trained mouse?

Every time you do this, I wonder how many more brilliant shots you have up your sleeve!

I only wish I were as clever with my comments as you are with your camera. Nice work, yet again.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2007 09:14:01 AM
Very, very clever. Congrats on your second (third?) ribbon in the past couple of weeks! Here's hoping that you take the week off, LOL, since you are playing us right now :-)

My first response seeing it thumbnailed: "That is cute"....
My response after seeing it full size: "That iiiiis cute"

I like this image, DOF is good, the background slightly out of focus with all of the tubes and graduated cylinders (?) and stuff in focus. I like the rat's expression, it's great, all of this is great :-D
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2007 07:52:06 AM
Brilliant - Not only did I say this should win - It did - And that means I still know a good pic when I see one.
This was the easy winner - Well done and well deserved
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2007 07:48:32 AM
Votes with 1,2,3,4,5 for this?
Are you serious ? After the DPL started some people vote for the team and not for the challenges.

For this photo what can i say....Nothing it speaks itself!!!
Hope the little girl be found
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/06/2007 07:26:45 AM
Congrats - Love the 'facial' expression and the choice of colors and shapes. I still can't quite get over the 7 votes below 5. Must be the PETA crowd...

This is great. That's a cute little guy! He really looks like he's just having a great ol' time hanging out in that beaker (sorry, couldn't help the bad pun). Excellent color and DOF. I pattern of the green background may be just a bit too much for my eyes to handle for very long.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2007 10:23:09 PM
Cool, great background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2007 08:54:11 PM
Poor guy. Waiting for you to get your shot just right. heheh. Very nice background for him to stand out. My pick for the blue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2007 11:07:48 AM
The green is really eye popping. The subject is funny and creative. Never would have thought of it, but I'm glad you did. 10

Nice shot. Any negative feedback from the voters? I hope not.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2007 01:09:19 AM
I love this one. A rat trying to save itself from scientific experimentation. The green background really makes this one.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/03/2007 12:23:09 AM
Fantastic all around - love the striking background color/pattern, the varying shapes/sizes/markings of the beakers, the pin-sharp and very photogenic rat! Great composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2007 03:12:49 PM
Like it. Cute mouse - clever shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/02/2007 02:12:31 PM
Fantastic great job - There is my 10. It's been a long time through this voting to finally see an entry that is just great. Well done and well deserved. Theres a lot of bore in this challenge but this is the exception to the rule. This will ribbon! If not then I may have to pack in DPC! Although he is a mouse not a rat!
Cheers

I gave this one top billing. Like evertying about it. Great layout, inclusion of test tubes, beakers, metallic background and a lab rat (hanging on for dear life).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2007 07:12:39 PM
excellent idea and execution. one of the top 3 in the challenge. I hope you score very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2007 06:48:07 PM
Heh. I believe that's a gerbil, my friend.. I have one that looks nearly identical.
:)

This is a really nice picture. First ten for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2007 01:39:32 PM
Looks more ike a lab gerbil; hope it's just a posing pet and not really stuck in a lab. Nice composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/31/2007 11:35:43 AM
A well shot photo, that makes me think "science". One of the few in the competition that stood out to me.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 02:36:55 PM
Cool idea but where is it's tail? I like the Lego baseboard looking background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 12:34:53 PM
Good idea but the background pattern is somewhat distracting to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 12:06:06 PM
This is adorable!!! And also technically very well done. 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 10:44:54 AM
The vivid greens in this one definitely caught my eye immediately! What a cute little guy! (Can't believe I said that about a mouse!!) Very creative! *9*
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 10:43:33 AM
great shot, good color, focus, DOF and lighting - should end in top10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 10:04:34 AM
Fantastic concept. The picture has many interpretations, but all of them come back to science in some way. Well done. This is a well conceived and excellently shot picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 03:44:49 AM
It's a gerbil;)I am sure you know that, well done 7.

this should win. Fantastic. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/30/2007 01:11:26 AM
This is a great shot. I like that the rat looks wet as if he is climbing out of the beaker. The background makes the whole thing come together. Very well done and a super image.
