Awesome picture. I would have used a mask of Obama though, making it literally "a man without quality".
06/09/2008 11:24:19 AM
Brilliant!! This is absolutely amazing! CONGRATULATIONS
06/09/2008 11:07:35 AM
I enjoyed this. The empty face was just the right amount of creepy. I gave it a 7 (which dragged your score down! sorry! hahaha). Congratulations!
06/09/2008 11:01:36 AM
So creative, different and excellent. Congratulations on your ribbon, Paolo. Great work.
06/09/2008 10:23:45 AM

Thanks Enzo. I supposed that to take a picture with a venetian mask wasn't very original, in my opinion. Ciao :)

BFC: Creative and well shot. Tones are spot on, 10 from this voter.
06/08/2008 01:33:31 PM
Great job. The lighting is fantastic, the idea superb.
06/07/2008 02:01:48 PM
good execution of concept, though would like to have had neck covered also
06/07/2008 01:08:26 PM
Very clever.
06/07/2008 01:11:53 AM
Wow, and excellent shot nicely set up and posed! The only minor nitpick is the tie is too reflective. I expect this to be among the top ones. 10 (my 5th 10 in over a year thanks to my new, more liberal grading scale).
06/06/2008 09:49:07 AM
very clever and well executed! great lighting. black and white works well here.
06/05/2008 08:23:46 PM
top ten for certain! Brilliant take on the theme.
06/05/2008 07:55:52 PM
very creative, well shot...the title immediately reminded me of a book called "zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance". I'm sure that was not your intent, but anyway. Well done!
06/05/2008 04:30:19 PM
well, when I seen this image on maxartis I understood that my idea was burned. I was sure that this photograph should be in this challenge. As technical point of view I think that is perfect, great the black and white, absolutely meet the challenge and i think that this will be sure in the ribbons. 10
06/05/2008 11:44:18 AM

Very cool, creative work
06/04/2008 08:02:02 PM
Cool idea, nicely executed.
06/03/2008 09:58:10 PM
strange expression on the masks face, creepy. for some reason the pattern of the tie is really coming out for me, lovely touch-8
06/03/2008 02:08:20 PM
very well done! great choice of b&w
06/02/2008 09:32:56 PM

WOW! Nice work. Had you not been wearing the stocking, it would have been a DNMC. Pulled it off well. One of the better ones this round - 9
06/02/2008 02:19:09 PM
