I didn't get it at first! LOL...OMG that is funny. Did you set this up or did you actually see this sign somewhere? Your use of "neg space" is also good. Lighting and angle, perfect. great capture! good luck in the challenge. ~hbunch7187~

This photo is so busy and cluttered I can't possibly see any negative space much less for it be the "wow of the image."

OK, while the technical aspects of the photo don't really appeal to me as exhibiting negative space, the sign itself (related to the challenge) is damned funny! I can't imagine a more negative space to be in than a meeting of the Pessimist Club. I was browsing at work and saw your submission and laughed out loud. As I showed it to others and explained the challenge concept, it took a while for some of them to get it but it was worth it. Great thinking!
Score: 8 (mostly for it's originality)

Talk about Negative Space...
09/18/2002 03:47:00 PM
wow that's negative
09/18/2002 12:07:00 PM
Well it certainly conjures up an emotionally negative place but I am not sure the wall with all that beautiful detail in the brick, is negative space on a visual level.

Ho ho ho. Well done for interpreting the title differently. :) 5 - floyd

I think this is an interesting 'alternative' interpretation of the challenge. I would have rather seen a direct interpretation of negative space rather than an implication of negative space... kudos on the idea though :) - jmsetzler
