Just read through the comments. I can't believe how many people didn't get it. This certainly deserved to do better.

Sorry you didn't do better. I was expecting this to be the winner!! Was my top placer.
I think there must be too many people here without imagination. (Or humor).
Keep up the good work. I had a great laugh with this, and also thought the photograph was great.

There is such an unbalanced level of justice in this world - how on earth did you achieve 17 tens AND 17 ones (BTW, i'm on the side of those giving the tens)? I feel quite aggrieved on your account here, as this deserved to do far better than 72nd. I think I shall stage a protest outside the houses of parliament, so we can invade the DPC headquarters and sort out this (and i don't use the word lightly) TRAVESTY of justice.

PS, nice one and keep up the good work!

haha... entertaining. is that you in the picture ?

It must have been like this before they invented the wheel? An intersting association!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 08:48:17 PM
Very funny picture! It is well composed and the colors are good. You also picked a good location - it looks very stone age. Your "caveman's" arm looks a little over exposed.

Good idea, I like this one. Rating: 9

creative. i wonder how many people are going to think he's looking at graves.

i like it a lot. if there was something to improve upon, it would be the hot spot on his arm.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 05:56:06 PM
very original idea...
i think i would have tried a landscape composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 04:43:41 PM
lol....took me sec to get the wheels a'rollin, great thought....hahahahaha
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 02:36:52 PM
this photo has a really good composition to it but i'm not sure it's clear on the meaning. Is this a caveman trying to invent the wheel?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2004 04:46:57 AM
In v iew of your c omment, and your heartfelt plea, I will change my rating. I cannot give it a 10 (I'm sorry abouit that) Would a 9 do?.

Ahaha! He's too white...

04/10/2004 09:54:30 PM
Funny and original but probably won't do as well as it should because there are no wheels!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 07:04:51 PM
Cute.

"Shades of 2001, Batman" I like the idea and the photo is really pretty well done. Good on you for a unique take on the challenge. 10

At least you tried to make fun!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 12:07:35 PM
Definitely should get the comedy award. I'm guessing paving tiles? If you had been able to put a stick (axle) between the "wheels" to emphasize what they are, would be better, at first I thought, 'why is looking at a couple of gravestones?' Great choice on background for the shot definitely adds to the stone age look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 05:59:28 AM
I like the idea, however the theme wheels is very abstract. I presume you want a car instead of four stones?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 02:26:02 AM
I had this idea, but no way of executing it. You've done it brilliantly
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 12:05:38 AM
Humorous play on the 2001 theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2004 09:43:23 PM
this is funny.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2004 05:24:33 PM
Very funny shot that certainly tells a story, The light sems a little harsh on your cave man ,and the stone (wheels) are not entirely in focus, still a good idea.
Good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2004 04:27:58 PM
Well! Let me give a breakdown of my score and i'll award you the average.

Humour / originality: - 10. This is completely totally hilarious. Well done you.

Technical acheivement: - 9; focus, lighting, all other sundry bits all in check and pretty much without flaw. The only preference i have is that i would have liked to have seen the image in landscape, thereby focusing more on the guy and the wheels and bringing it closer to me the viewer (though negative side effect is unfortunately losing the gorgeous sky and loevly moutain at the back)

Being able to rope in some poor sod to make a tit of himself: - 10! How'd you do it? I hope you bought him a pint. And then show his parents the picture!

And fit the challenge? - 10. Definitely, yes, no problem. Unconventional but totally legit.

So off the top of my head that's a 9.75. So 10! well done!

04/09/2004 09:59:35 AM
Ha ha ha, this is absolutely hilarious. You took a big risk here, other voters might not see the "wheel" and vote you down. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2004 08:52:27 AM
4 for being creative but only with the title does the photo meet the challenge and even then it's a really big stretch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2004 10:33:51 PM
lol.. technically quite good, except the skin is a bit over exposed

Nice history lesson,funny trunks,7

04/08/2004 04:22:34 PM
Heh! Was your friend offended when you asked him to pose as a caveman? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2004 01:14:43 PM
This picture gets my vote for best of show. It is hilariously funny and well staged.

04/08/2004 10:59:54 AM
hahaha... "there was no wheel at all"... very Kubrik idea.... That's pure fun. 10 You're my winner !!!!!!!!!

Your caveman lived in a beautiful place.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 11:39:49 PM
i'm afraid i can't make the connection, dave. sorry, that was the first thing that popped in my head. wouldve been funny if he had a full chassis with square stones :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 08:35:52 PM
LOL! Points for humor, and it's a pretty nice photo too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

And the winner for most time into a shot setup is.... Cute idea, well executed, and great light you caught. the brown plays off nicely against the blue.

04/07/2004 12:43:04 PM
I like it! I had a similar idea, but no time to work on it. You picked a good location, and the technical aspects are fine. A more caveman-like subject would help, as well as knocking off the corners of the 'wheels' to make them a little rounder. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:41:24 PM
that's darn funny!! And creative...10 they guys arm is a bit blown out but i don't care LOL

cute and imaginitive. lighting on cave man's forearm is too much and blown out. sky is nice.

LOL....love the humor.

04/07/2004 06:54:05 AM
HAAA, HAAA, HAAA, Great photo it made be laugh and very funny. However, they are not wheels so, a 1......no way, you gone past the challange and created a photo with thought and being sujestive to the theme. 10 from me.

Normally, I dislike "staged" compositions, but this is funny :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 01:05:20 AM
I don't get it. Where's the wheel? Interesting, but totally off-task or way too obscure. Are they supposed to be square wheels? They look more like gravestones, and would still be gravestones in my mind, were I not expecting them to be wheels. An image like this needs a caption or a setup or recategorized or something.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 01:01:21 AM
hilarious but I don't get what it has to do with wheels unless it is the wheels spinning in his head.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:51:06 AM
funny stuff
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:40:02 AM
Love the humour. Lighting is a bit harsh, but it adds to that feel that this was a long time ago. Really funny. -8
