For those interested, I "balanced" the egg by attaching some silly putty to the back of it and stuck the rest to my head, forming an "L" shaped putty bracket that enabled me to position the egg without it falling. :)

I like this image a lot- i'm trying to figure out why someone gave you a 1 unless they were just attempting to 'boost' their own scores? it fits the challenge, the lighting is beautiful, there is a twist of humor to it, its fully sharp and in focus - it would be interesting to see what that persons photos look like? (makes me kinda wish we could see the 'users that post below 4's photos)

Fun shot. I like that the egg fades into the background on top. Back to bump you up to 8.

For some reason the first thing that I think of when I see this photo besides, how the hell did he balance an egg on his head) is that band "The Presidents of the United States of America". I could see them using this for an album cover and singing a song about eggs on your head.

nice lighting to be able to see the egg so crisply against the white background. Also a good sense of humor in this picture.

Nice image - Great sharpness - If anything it just seems a tad bright at the top of the egg which is a little distracting - Nice idea though.

Nice idea, but a bit blown out on top and not enough contrast between the egg and background.

I love the humor in this image- and the shapes; the details of the hair growing in and the crop- it just shows creativity and an otuside of the box-way of thinking witht he title/action in the image- the balance and expression are great too! -beautiful skin-tones -- (10)
