Challenge: I Bought It On eBay (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: inside
Date: Dec 16, 2007
Aperture: F16
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Humorous
Date Uploaded: Dec 16, 2007

I've done the ipod joke before:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/421/120/270304.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/421/120/270304.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
But I thought it fitted in well with the challenge. I still had the 'eyes' in my props draw, it just took a while to make the fake ebay page. Editing was pretty minimal, it just took a while to try and get the lighting right - still not entirely happy with it!

Not the first time I have seen this concept, but the others were photoshopped and not photographed that way. This whole shot is well done. I love the details on the printout.

ooooo I think we may have a ribbon contender here.

Wonderful sense of humour and captures one of the 'concepts' of ebay perfectly.

I guess the only thing I struggle with is the sheet of paper. I appreciate that it adds to the joke but in terms of the image I dont know whether it might have been better to omit it and trust that the voters would have got a more subtle message

Well, does it play music? I like the funny touches a lot: the fact they won't ship to Wales, the high bidder's name ... :)
