Challenge: Silence IV (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Olympus C-5050Z

Date: Mar 2, 2004
Galleries: Snapshot, Vintage
Date Uploaded: Mar 2, 2004

These are some cool cats that I work with- the two women are staffers & the two men are members of Families United For Racial & Economic Equality (FUREE). They are speeling out the word LOVE. Not much to this picture other than ditching the colour & adding sepia tones, crop & border, then a resize.

Hello Everyone!

Thanks so much to everyone that dropped a comment on this shot. This was the fastest shoot ever for me! I took just two shots! Had fun tho as short as it was. I wish I could have done some advacne editing on it to even out the contrast but at las I could not!

Rooster, you're just kicking butt these days! Unfortunately I never saw this photo during voting, strange.....anyway, congrats!

Gave you a "10 on this one. Excellent composition with a great idea. I like the lucky cat in the background.

We all need a little love. Nice picture! Good take on the challenge.

One of the most clever ideas for the challenge. Photographically, a little more contrast between your subjects and the background would be nice. 10

Nice photo......i guess i would say I "love" it. Sepia works real well....good luck.

I love this and have viewed it several times since I did my initial voting (10) and now my voting fine tuning (10). Whilst the traditional technical measures of a "good" image (such as composition, background etc) aren't the best they could be, this image packs an incredible punch, regardless. It conveys silence and the reality of living in a silent world very very strongly. I also love the feeling of connection with your subjects. An exceptional image and my joint-favourite this challenge.

very nice picture :) heartwarming :)

This is nice! truly on original idea. Spelling the word Love makes it even better. The lighting could be better, though. The lady on the left of the image is a little bright and tends to stand out.

Nice shot, the back ground is some what distracting though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/05/2004 02:28:00 PM
Very good taste. Well done picture. It worth the best. Congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Now that's a cool pic. Nice idea. It's a fresh change from most of the mundane "same old, same old" pics for this challenge. 7 for something new.

excellent tones, good shot, a little bit cheesey, but very likeable all the same - 9

NICE interpretation of the subject!

Good picture, but why is the second guy wearing a walkman???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2004 04:01:32 PM
The background is a bit too busy, but I like the idea anyway. Well done.

Great shot... one of my favorites this week :)

Nice shot. "Silent Love?"

I really like this shot, very cool. I figured there would be more sign language shots than were submitted. Great photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I was hoping someone would do something with ASL - this is a great shot, love the sepia cast and the expressions on people's faces. -8

I had the same idea but it was hard to capture the signs for Silence is golden.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2004 11:00:49 AM
I had a similar idea involving sign language instead of fingerspelling, but didn't have a chance to do it. This picture gets a 10 from me! I'm deaf (or hearing-impaired for you politically-correct folks), so I'm a bit biased. ;-) Models are wonderfully photogenic and I love the desaturated effect!

good picture im curius about what they are saying
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2004 09:59:12 AM
Great idea for "silence". Lighting on one face is a bit bright. Lights (or whatever it is) in the background is a bit distracting. Score: 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2004 09:06:53 AM
The sense of fun and comaraderie given off by the models in this photo make the message of LOVE seem genuine, thus meriting this photo a big fat 10, and my pick for a blue ribbon!

03/03/2004 07:29:37 AM
A new approach!! Very Nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the idea and the use of sepia - would have preferred a less busy background.
