interesting idea. Not sure what to think of the details on the girls face being blown out.

the idea is pretty funny, but the picture does seem a bit overexposed (maybe you wanted it like this) ... i would have liked a bit more greyscale on the people (the girls face almost disappears in the background, so do the guys shoulders) ... and the cardboard blacker ... 7

think that name is long enough?
05/04/2004 02:00:24 AM
i have no idea what this is meaning....

This almost works. I think in understand what the comparison is. If they are comparing body parts, then show enough shoulder to show they have nothing on, and decrease the exposure on the whole picture so they show up better against the background. If i'm wrong, just disregard. I think it's a neat idea anyway. 7

Hmmm. great idea. One of the most original in the challenge - an extra point for the creative approach. It works well in black and white...but the girl's face and the man's shoulders blend into the white background.

nice !! my only 10. funny pic.

over-exposed (in more ways than one)

Are they checking out the size of his penis? He is looking directly down and she is looking down toward him so that's my guess based on this challenge. But why such high key contrast? The girls face and the guys shirt disappear into the background. Was this the intention? What is it saying about proportion? Why are they holding grey paper in front of themselves? This is really just a confusing jumble and doesn't say much about proportion. The title isn't working too hard for you either.

Cute picture, but consider a more concise title.
04/28/2004 01:31:47 PM
Funny! The blownout background works well here. Good Job! 8

i like this shot...as i was looking i thought...hmmm...ahhhh...chuckle,chuckle. very thought provoking, well done.

Great idea, props, expressions etc, black and white works really well, but the girl isn't sharp, both have lost their necks with the white background (She has lost all definition on her forehead) which may have been deliberate but I think destraccts from the image.
