My DPC Olympics Teammates for SW Love Shack had GREAT ideas for titles... but I was too chicken to use them. *sigh*

"Waiting for Rollover"

and "Rollover Sucks"


I wasn't sure that all voters knew the term 'rollover' means the moment when the votes are in and the new challenges are announced.

I think the titles are hilarious. I'm just a chicken.

Apparently I completely missed this challenge - this is delightful! I am assuming, of course, that you righted the fellow and apologized after the shoot, yes? :-)

I like this one, and I like that it's different than the others. Well done. Nice grey scale.

B&W treatment is lovely, depth of field is well-chosen and nimbly executed, and subject is right up this challenge topic's alley. Excellent work, and congrats on your top 10. I vote for "waiting for rollover" :)

Great shot, Lydia! Congrats on 7th place. Love the title but would have preferred "Rollover Sucks" ;-)))

I love this shot! Very whimsical and fun. The spread legs really make it. The composition, DoF and B&W really help to get that feel across. Excellent!

Haha nice take on the challenge, a true upside down shot - a bit of a rarity in itself ;)

Nice conversion, hope the little fella didn't have to stay upside down too long for you to grab this great shot.

My first 10, this is priceless. Nicely focused and good DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Aaaw, poor little critter! Cute image and I like your shallow DOF. Would be curious to see this one in colour too. Could do with more contrast in the black and white conversion I think or maybe it's simply that there is too much mid-tone grey in the image and not much white and black?

Excellent tones & composition. The border also works well here. Makes me curious what he looks like from the front.

poor little fellow

Really funny capture, and perfect for the challenge. A little higher angle would probably have helped show more depth of field, but of course that's not always possible. Great job!

:-) very funny, also the title! much better than the other one. 10 points.

I love the composition & crop on this shot. 8

oh HAHHA this has got to be the best picture in the challenge! by far my favorite, and the only one that really almost made me spit out my drink the title is perfect, however I wish there was a bit more contrast in the overall picture, too many shades of gray and not enough blacks for me and my taste, but thats just my taste so it doesnt matter :p I still love this 9

Maybe a touch more depth of field, but a nice shot and true to the theme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the composition, but I think it would better if there were more contrast between foreground and background.
