DOH! Was my fav in the challenge, it's the only one perfectly fitting the challenge. How could anyone score it lower than a 4?
01/27/2009 03:35:13 PM
This was my highest scoring image in this challenge. Totally met the challenge, unlike many others. Should, of course, have scored much, much higher.
01/21/2009 08:38:14 PM
Shoulda placed much higher

This was my top pick and one of the 10s. You are right it looks very "stocky" and fit the challenge perfectly. I guess the physical size of the shot brought it down.
01/21/2009 12:24:42 AM
I am dissapointed that this shot didn't do better
It deserved at least a top 5

This one totally nailed it for stock photography

I think some voters didn't understand the challenge

Well done! This the only one that got a 10 on this challenge

Definitely looks like a stock advertising type pic.

nice job
01/18/2009 06:07:42 AM
lol you so are :-)
01/17/2009 07:52:48 PM
yes you are.
01/16/2009 10:38:06 PM
I voted you an 8 because wow - you are very stock. The shot is really boring, but I expect that in stock photography. I guess thats a compliment. The only critique I have is that her hair is blown out. I gave you an 8 tho - so dont be mad about the boring bit.
01/16/2009 09:25:18 PM
You totally nailed the challenge! Well done!
01/16/2009 09:45:44 AM
this really looks like it's been downloaded from a stock agency (did you or are you a stock photography pro?).
only nitpick would be the crop at bottom
01/15/2009 02:17:29 PM
I wish their heads weren't cut off.
01/15/2009 01:15:14 PM
Title fits picture. Picture fits challenge!

I'm just wondering why they're cooking over the back burner. Their position seems a little forced to me. Otherwise, great couple shot.
01/14/2009 09:04:44 PM
This is the best Cooking Stock shot in the entire show. Good Luck! 10
01/14/2009 06:10:23 PM
shame there was no way to disguise background distractions, otherwise great stuff 7
01/14/2009 04:39:53 PM
haha, cute. I don't know about chopping off the top of their hears though...doesn't seem very "stock". Good lighting, set up, and poses.
01/14/2009 04:24:51 PM
Small but a nicely posed moment.
01/14/2009 11:37:43 AM
Yes, this is what I envisioned when I think of Stock Photography: COOKING! Nice Job!
01/14/2009 10:29:25 AM
Yep, that's a stock photo!
01/14/2009 08:49:48 AM
This definitely looks like something out of a brochure for a kitchen company.
01/14/2009 05:15:29 AM
very stocky
01/14/2009 03:33:49 AM
IMO the crop hurts the composition here. Nice idea so what you would expect!
