Critique Club feedback -

Excellent image which is the perfect visual reinforcement for the message the poster conveys.

Propaganda doesn't work when people don't understand what they are reading. I can guess what Fecundity means, but I don't know for sure and haven't bothered to look it up. Not sure what a better catch word would be, but I'm thinking there may be more accessible words to choose from heh. Still, this was all about the phrase at the bottom and that message was crystal clear.

I laughed like hell when I saw this. I think this pulled a solid score that was well deserved on technical merit and for meeting the challenge.

Well done, this was a really creative and fun entry.

very well done, and very funny. i agree with the post about the title - maybe it should have been ambition???

o, yes, i am a woman, and i think this is hilarious.

lol Evolutionary motivational poster, that's a new one... I like that it's technically extremely well executed too - the light and texture are great.

Funny! Guys go around fertilizing chicken eggs? :))))) I was going to say the image is too centred, but with that message, how could it not be centred? ~8

This looks like it's from some sort of weird science fiction movie where women have been redefined - distilled to a primary purpose in the superficial eyes of the provider of "seed". The alternate poster would maybe have signs of male extinction and females generating their own "seed" from ... let's say the stem cells of oysters. I personally am torn because I don't want to judge it on moral grounds - in case it is meant to be tongue in cheek. no vote here -but good luck getting this past women voters (it will be interesting to see how many 1's this gets).

Almost as outrageous as the "Cause this sh*t won't fold itself" one. It made me look up the word. Nice shot of the egg.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 10:37:22 PM
OK that's a very funny idea if a bit offensive. I do think the title weakens the idea- isn't it more about ambition or initiative, than simple fecundity?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 10:07:29 PM
With my assistance, a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 06:56:16 PM
LOL! (tears in my eyes!) Really good egg capture, and I needed to look up "fecundity". Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2007 04:04:29 PM
ROFL this is priceless! This has got to be top 10! Simple but very effective! Very Clever! If this is not on the front page when voting is over I'll be peeved! LOL.

09/03/2007 11:52:31 AM
Very funny. I'm going to take this in the satirical spirit which I assume you intended, so I'm calling it brilliant. -9

09/03/2007 09:25:43 AM
and next you will give "mother-crosses" to every woman with more than 5 children? very questionable message going along with a perfect egg shot, which i had scored a 10. I won't vote on this because I strongly disagree with the content.
