how the heck did this get a 5.1? Second time I reviewed a favorite from this challenge that I gave a 10 to that scored in the 5.0-5.1 range.

WTF?
03/21/2009 08:34:39 AM
What a shame this didn't come up in my 500 votes - would've been a 10 from me. I like quirky photos like this.... ;-Þ
03/20/2009 01:39:50 PM
This is a kick! 5.1? Seriously? Bah. Great photo - don't let the score tell you otherwise.

Gawd, you got robbed!

I really love this photo. It's one of my few favorites in this challenge. This is the kind of photo I wish I had of myself when I was a kid. When I was young, my parents put a good bit of effort into shooting super-8 movies, which are a thing of the past now, but they did transfer them manually to VHS tapes a long time ago, and since then, I have converted those to DVD so they will hopefully live a little longer. I hope this child gets to look back on this photo in 20... 40... and even 60 or 80 years down the road and realize how nice it was to have someone interested in pointing a camera at him :) +fav

Unusual looking kid, unusual shot. Crazy eyes. The kids skin color/tone looks unnatural(wonky) and too orangy though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 10:16:35 AM
Heheheheh... those goggle are awesome. Thanks for the laugh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 07:12:00 AM
The editing kind of takes away from this shot. I dont much dig tonemapping on people. But the base image I love.

The editing isn't very flattering for the kid. My thoughts...

Nice crop. Talk about in your face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:44:33 PM
Couldn't be any more wonky than this, for sure :-) Tremendously beguiling, off-the-wall image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You owe me a keyboard. LOL.
Very funny capture.

Great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:57:05 PM
strange and compelling in a bizarre sort of way, what to say? some how "nice shot" doesn't do it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 11:58:47 AM
What a funny photo!! It made me laugh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 09:24:04 AM
Coming back to comment...

This is just too funny!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 07:01:24 AM
hmm, i think the over processing of this image doesn't help it. to me the skins saturation is too high. The original photo could have been quite cute
  Photographer found comment helpful.

03/14/2009 08:01:04 PM
cute. Baby is a bit distorted, blurry, and off-color. Those glasses do make me smile, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 05:20:33 PM
Silly but it has a childlike charm to it. I like the in-your-face POV and the lomo effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 04:11:15 PM
Hahaha, those are awesome and ridiculous. I find the bit of trees behind the shoulder a bit distracting, but I like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 02:33:44 PM
Hysterically funny!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 12:43:20 PM
Funny shot that has been a bit too over processed in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 11:48:29 AM
OK... This is cute. There is quality issues but I gave a little bit more because it so darn cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Weird and funky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 09:58:22 PM
This one cracks me up so much! It is absolutely delightful! I think it should get an 11 but the knobs on our amps only go to a ten so we are going to have to build some new ones for when we want to go higher!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:13:53 PM
Well, this is rather creepy looking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:16:27 AM
Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:02:58 AM
ga! thats freaky! lol. i would suggest not cropping the tip of his head off next time, thats a bit distracting, and the green tree thing over in the corner could use removal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 10:41:33 AM
freaks me out, this one could be used to scare children if they watch too much cartoons, hehe. too bad it's not sharp in the face. the border would look better in black i think.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:55:53 AM
Oh my gosh, you made me laugh out loud here at my desk at work. Awesome job.

Hahaha, what an adorable baby shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 11:19:17 PM
Reminds me of "Mad Eye Moody" in Harry Potter and I confess I'm a little creeped out by it. So at least you grabbed my attention and delivered an emotional payload.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:56:26 PM

A pop art feel to this with the oversaturated colors and the hue selected. Not to everyones liking IMO. not my preference either , 5
