This was the first challenge that I shot in RAW. I love RAW!!! It is amazing the control and clarity you get from shooting in RAW.

That said, this was a last minute entry.

Got the idea from working on Ipods all day. I thought it would be cool to have a robot that told you not to disconnect when it was charging.

I just got an iPod (I'm way behind the times). I hope people will understand this one. Very witty.

I can see the statement you're making but it doesn't grab me. Sorry :-(

Neat idea for this photo. The glasses do not look very natural because the images you have place where the lenses should go seem to be a little rough around the edges. I like the lighting and the colors.

Nice idea, the cut-outs need some work, but I am sure you will bet better the more you try. Lighting looks good and colours are nice. I think I would have liked the 'attachment' more on the temple, it just seems too high to me.

Nice! I know I should say something a little more helpfull, but Im just too lazy.

technically it's a nice shot but compared to the others i've seen, it just doesnt stand up to them.

Still charging? Johnny Mnemonic comes to mind...

Which, of course, is an invitation to disconnect just to see what happens... ;-Þ

Maybe too simple an idea for this challenge, but good luck anyway.
