Might as well be a point of wheels :)

Dust dots? Pain in the butt...
Without spot editing - mission impossible.

Awesome! I'm so glad it did as well as it did. I thought it would do worse acutally, but enough people got it I guess. I showed it to my girlfriend and she couldn't figure it either - and she has a huge IQ score! - but loved it when I told her what it was. A very appreciated picture!! Great job!!! And I envy the amount of comments. You probably have more than half the amount of I comments I have in sum on this one picture. Good Job!!!

What's that saying about the 'squeaky wheel' ? :)

Nice mouse shot

Arrgghhh... I have no intention of writing an explanation for the 50th time. Read at least a few comments and then, if you don't get it, PM me and I'll try to explain it.

I must say, I'm a bit disappointed - just 8 ones?!
I was expecting at least 29 (same as tens) :))

Thanks for the pile of comments :), I guess not everybody in this challenge was that open minded after all.

This one was really fun! At least I'm heading for my most commented photo :))

stunning... i didn't vote on this, but amazing work.
I think it acheives much shock as the voter is saying "wtf is that, how is it a wheel" takes a sec, but you see it in the end... VERY creative

Wow!! It took a really good look to realize this was a mouse!!! Brill Job!

Nice. Took me awhile to figure this one out.

Too much empty white for me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 08:24:57 PM
usually I am not interested in mundane objects, but this is an excelent use of their abstract qualities. 10

A very interesting, well-composed abstract. Like the high-key. Congrats on having the courage to submit something "out of the box."

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 03:35:45 PM
needs just a bit more contrast. left edge of mouse is washed out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 03:07:36 PM
love the perspective play. it is a little too much white for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/12/2004 02:24:07 PM
A very nice picture here!!! Been showing it to a few collegues!

I really like your lighting here, almost drowns out the rest of the mouse, whilst only showing the wheel (and button) Was it done with a mirror? Well done!!

It is probably me but I just don't get it.

Do I look at a bird ? Very nice picture, but for me it is lacking of wheels or real circles. Yours, Jan
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2004 06:48:37 PM
Nice effort, I think you may be trying almost too hard. This borders on "digital art". Dont misunderstand, it's a good pic, but I can't give the highest rating on it due to the apparent amount of manipulation. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2004 10:17:31 AM
Cool! But, I cant really tell what it is.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2004 01:53:26 AM
Very, very overexposed and washed out. I realize it was your intention, but it does not work for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/11/2004 01:14:20 AM
Took me a sec:) Would be a cool to do an optical mouse in darkness for an antipole pair.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 10:29:08 PM
it's a very genuine approach
i will give it a 5 for creativity... unfortunately the shot is not balanced and i don't understand the relation between the title and the wheel...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 06:34:39 PM
This was a nice, fine-tuned portait of wheel-mice. I love the high-key effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 04:47:40 PM
Well, if there was a prize for the baffling the viewer for the longest period of time you'd get a 10.

Now, this picture has taught me a lot, I'm not ashamed to say I'm a first impressions kind of guy and just didn't get this at all. Finger where the mouse 'wheel' should be? Now I like it - a lot :)

04/10/2004 02:32:36 PM
elegant!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/10/2004 06:26:13 AM
This is fantastic, love it. Sorry can't be very helpful because I wouldn't change it. Hope it gets top 10. 10 from me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Took me a minute to figure this one out...it certainly is unique. Has almost a sensual quality to it. A bit bright, but different nonetheless. Very impressive.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2004 08:22:20 PM
Well done, I like the look that the high contrast gives this photograph. One of the better mouse wheels submitted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2004 09:23:57 PM
For a moment I couldn't figure out what it was. This is a well-thought photo. Nicely composed and, the colour is good. I wished the line didn't extend to the left of the photo but that's just me... good job. 9

I'm wathing this photo full 5 minutes,can't tell what is the subject,but nice abstract,6.

Interesting take on what I thought would be a very common subject (but hasn't been over-done). I like the very graphic almost abstract quality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2004 08:51:38 AM
I can't figure out how this picture fits the challenge, and I don't really understand it. But I like it! the colors are awesome. I would like to know WHAT the subject is. If you would like to explain how it fits the challenge, I will revote it if I feel your exaplanation and subject is relevant to the challenge.

I almost feel like an idiot because I totally see it now!! I love this shot, it has to be one of my favorites in the challenge and I am glad that you explained it to me! I hope that everyone else can be open minded about it.

I can't make thi out atall. However hard i try to look i just cant see a wheel hense low score of 1

This is so cute! awesome shot The lightning is great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/08/2004 01:42:11 AM
ok, I amit I had to save this image to my PC and edit it to find out what the heck it was....its a mouse. Very nicely done. Also I originally rated this a 5 since I did not know or how wheel fit this image. Im going to bump your score up to a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 11:56:19 PM
took me a second :) "OH! i recoginize that!" nicely done. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 06:20:08 PM
Subtle! Perhaps one good example of when blowing out the white works for the subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 04:26:26 PM
Pretty shot but a bit too abstract and a long way to go to get to a mouse wheel, which is barely a wheel anyway. I like the image and was trying one way and onother to see what it was and when I finally saw it I was disapointed that it wasn't a wheel wheel, had it been the payoff whould have been as high as the shot is pretty.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 03:32:24 PM
I don't get it. ok, a few drinks and staring at it i get it (mouse wheel reflected). arsty i suppose, but not real appealing to me
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 03:27:25 PM
what is it??
computer mouse?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 03:04:54 PM
I like the high key look, and the slight blue/green tint is super. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 02:03:36 PM
Oh! a mouse wheel, it took me a while.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 01:59:41 PM
unique, but too white. not enough contrast
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 01:18:11 PM
And there I was thinking that if I see another mouse wheel I'll mark it down to 1 just because. And now I can't possibly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 01:09:27 PM
This is just beautiful! I couldn't tell what it was at first. I love the whole setup. Great Job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:25:17 PM
Nice. I had to really look at this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:06:45 PM
Love this photo. At first I was going to down-rate it because of relevance to the theme. As I looked longer and longer, and as my eye traveled around the photo, it seemed more and more perfect. Well done. Nice comp. Great color.

Clever, but cold. It will probably do very well in the challenge though.

An intresting picture, very clean

04/07/2004 02:13:54 AM
Nice high-key abstract but I don't get the "wheel"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2004 12:13:04 AM
Hrm, I'm guessing mouse ball/wheel. I like the high key look, seems very suggestive too. It's different for sure.
