Wow, seriously guys. I thought the entry was humorous but I never thought in a million years I would get any degree to the comments I received nor that people would accept my humor. You have proven once and for all that the score of a photo means little compared to the comments it receives and judging by those comments this entry was pure gold. So I thank you, I am very honored.

I have to give you credit for your "SA" entry because it really had me LAUGHING! I literally DID spit tea and burst into a fit of laughter when I saw this one. I also BOW to you for getting the responses you did on such an entry. I've made a couple of attempts at eliciting this type of response with entries like this but, never gotten people's senses of humor like this!!! Congratulations!!! I truly enjoyed this one!!!!!!!

Thanks yospiff, oh and btw I think I might have predated Charlie by a couple years if those first entries count. ;)
12/15/2008 12:44:54 AM
Great idea!!! this far too good to be a brown ribbon winner. I laughed so much when I saw it.

I'm guessing wrong all over the place. I thought this was a CharlieBaker entry and I mistook someone else's for Posthumous. Congrats on your brownie.

I am trying to picture a blackbird with balls the size of watermelons... I may have nightmares about this one... how would I be able to fly... xD

Wow! This is great! I love simple composition. You really nailed the low key.

If this is not an entry from ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' CharlieBaker it is someone inspired by him...

Excellent idea though. In spite of having to give this a low vote, you also get my blue shoehorn for the unexpected humor. Nice job.

I see a little bit of grainy ISO noise towards the bottom. You may want to run a noise reduction plugin on your future lenscap shots.

Added: I may want to calibrate the monitor on the Mac in the spare bedroom. Looks like a solid black here on my usual system. I lowered my vote on this, as it is certain to be a brown effort and I wanted to help you out.

I was actually considering an idea similar to this. I live in Oregon, and we don't get to see the sun much this time of year. Mine would have been gray hazy skies.

What is this! there's nothing here!

Sorry to find the image just as uniform as the thumbnail suggested. I predict a low score from most voters. I'm just commenting, but I would deduct a point or two becaue this image doesn't convey anything about sunset or sunrise and has to depend on the title for even a remote connection.

Ok, I spit tea out on this one!!!!!!!! Really chuckled!!!!!!!! Thank you for that laugh!!!! *smile*

crazy...lol

Its a little dark, and a tad flat. Maybe calibrate your monitor, bump the brightness just a tiny bit and play with the contrast a little more. Otherwise, the focus is spot on and the composition is excellent. I like that you didn't over saturate as well. Good jorb!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2008 07:04:54 PM
I haven't given a 10 for a long, long time and not about to do it here but you get an 8 for having balls the size of watermelons. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2008 03:33:15 PM
10 for the title and 0 for the photo = 5 :)

12/08/2008 06:27:42 PM

12/08/2008 05:36:41 PM
To late would have at least gotten some stars, I think it may be more likely to be a lens cap issue....lol

Darn, you missed the sunset. Or are too early for sunrise. Might as well go back to bed. Hehe.
