Instant smile. Absolutely perfect take on the challenge as well. I'm not surprised by the finish as it definitely requires some time to explore the image, which of course, adds to enjoyment of this image. Well done.

This is an awesome idea. Too bad it finished where it did. The image is good, the idea is great, the processing is even better and all you get was 193 out of 382. Just goes to show you how bad this place is getting. On the up side 15 fav's is awesome. You deserved a better score IMO.

very artistic, fantastic composition. probably not the best for the challenge but on it's own it is such a powerful image!

a simply superb image, that should have scored much higher. yet, that's par for the course, really, isn't it. the colour, tones, the extentded legs, the stretch, the long ferris wheel: all just fab.

I love this. Great take on the Double Take. Voters vote too quickly and probably didn't see how well this fit into the challenge while being creative as well.

Wonderful shot. Love the context to the challenge. The slight sense of motion adds alot to the feeling. Congrats on a OOBIE on this capture.

Dang I am dense. I did not get it either. Consider me slooooooooow and unobservant. This is AWESOME. A true sense of double take.

Excellent, wish I'd gotten to this in voting. Like your duotones. Clearly your choice was deliberate - but I wonder about getting the ferris wheel in the other orientation to drive home the wheel aspect. When it looks like a tower like this, I almost want to see a handstand instead. Wonderful interpretation though!

Lisa I really liked this shot and got the idea of cartwheel and big wheel straight away. Lovely image, idea and execution
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow, yet more proof that I'll never understand the average voter. My immediate reaction to this photo was: what a very clever interpretation to photograph a cartwheel and a ferris-wheel. It never even occurred to me that it might not meet the challenge. But judging by the ridiculously low score, lots of people must have thought so. Sigh...

this is so smart and well composed. The fact that it came in 193 is only a commentary on the voters - we now know that 27/148 or 18% of voters are smart and have taste!

Easily the best creative interpretation on the challenge. Great work!

cute, i like your style, the way your mind works.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2007 10:00:52 AM
good moment, but i don't like the vignetting and the shot probably would work better in full color. 6.

I like the tone but the composition seems a bit off with the girls leg so close to the edge of the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 07:31:34 PM
I love the concept and the shot. It looks like dodging on the outside and IMO you went a little to much..But that may be the look you were going for, so i wont dock you lol 9

I'm not getting the relation to the challenge topic here?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/05/2007 12:23:41 AM
very cool creative - are DPC voters smart enough to see that's a ferris wheel? Or will they be perplexed? Hmmmmm. I am smart though! And I love it. 8 for now

Fun and fanciful. I like the duotone as well. What the heck is that structure to the right?
