I tried for a couple of hours, tooks several hundered photos and could not get the blocks to line up and be in the same focal plane. In the end I just dropped them onto the speaker. If anyone does not think the D70 has shutter lag try to take pictures of falling objects;)

You are a man of great patience. Nevermind the dust....getting those cubes to show their better side is an untold challenge. Fantastic.
07/13/2004 08:54:47 AM
Well the idea is nice yet I find it strange you would go to so much effort to try and get the final image just so without even wiping the dust off the speaker!

i have taken many pictures of falling objects and water splashes and i can say with confidence that d70 has no shutter lag that is noticable by a human...good picture
07/11/2004 12:17:20 AM

07/10/2004 06:38:30 PM
I don't have the patience to take a photo like that, congrats...
07/09/2004 07:49:54 PM

patience is a virtue, lovely shot.
07/08/2004 05:48:06 PM
WooHoo.. Finally someone I give a 10 to gets in the top 3! Congrats on your ribbon, your image was original and well done. Cheers
07/08/2004 08:59:37 AM
Very nice. Very original :)
07/07/2004 11:25:03 PM
I knew you would ribbon! Great shot, glad to see you in the top three.
07/07/2004 10:02:47 PM
Well, I guess it's 3rd time's a charm huh? Congrats on 3rd place. I bet there'll be more to come.
07/07/2004 12:20:58 AM
Congrats on a top 5 finish!

As I looked at this shot during the challenge, I tried to imagine how manytimes it took to get it just right.

My hat's off to you for sticking with it. Definately a winner!

Now a ribbon winner too! (Not always the best way to get one though...)

Awsome :) !
07/06/2004 02:02:23 PM
Excelent. Very well done.
Maybe a flash would have helped to freeze the movement a bit better here, but I like the photo
07/05/2004 04:29:54 PM
Nice! Can't wait to read how many attempts this took to get right :)
07/04/2004 09:11:31 PM
Extremely creative. Not a particularly attractive image to me, but I have to give you credit for coming up with the idea!
07/04/2004 06:33:39 AM
Great concept, well executed... The background above the speaker is a little distracting, but this is a neat shot.

How many did you take before the letters were vaguely lined up I wonder? :-).
07/04/2004 12:01:27 AM
Not bad! - 7
07/03/2004 04:40:45 PM
very clever!
07/02/2004 12:47:11 PM
really great photo, just one prob for me is it took a short while to see it was a speaker, otherwise great.
07/02/2004 11:22:46 AM
Very cool image. I want to see how this was done...

07/02/2004 02:44:15 AM
very cool! Focus on the blocks could be a little sharper

Great idea. Just a hint out of focus but I really like it.

This is great - but the shutter speed is too fast - a little bit more motion implied through some blur would give people a better sense of the beads bouncing to the sound (I assume thats whats happening here).
07/01/2004 09:13:09 PM
interesting concept, but the speaker is ugly to look at, and the balance of the photo is off a bit (centering, composition..)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2004 08:16:36 PM
Super idea and excellent shot. Meets the challenge and has a lot of humor...really like this one. Might be better if the shot had not had the white area in the upper left.

07/01/2004 06:53:58 PM
wow! great idea. 10
07/01/2004 06:40:07 PM
Very cool, I think you will ribbon with this one. Love to know how you got the shot. I like the idea, I like the execution, I even like the odd framing. My only critique is I wish it were a teensy bit sharper.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2004 03:50:56 PM
good idea
07/01/2004 02:44:24 PM
great shot! Only thing I am a bit thrown by is the flatness!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really cool picture. I almost did something similar, but decided on a different theme. My only minor complaint is that the U is quite out of focus. 8
07/01/2004 09:16:54 AM
Impressive! I would have cropped in a little closer at the top, and tried for more depth of field. Still, I give it a 6. Oh, and, turn it down.
07/01/2004 05:50:52 AM
This is very different and clever and the colours are great. As i was writing I've just noticed the word LOUD well done
06/30/2004 10:52:45 PM
I feel that my previous voting method was perhaps a bit too critical for this event.

This site's group is full of promising talent, and I would like to encourage that, and therefore will compensate for my previous median standard by ascribing your photographs a '10' rating this time.

In the future I will inspect each photograph, and really look for the beauty, design, and thought provoking composition that connects us.

06/30/2004 08:36:16 PM
WOW!! This is a cool image, simply because the subject matter makes the viewer scratch his/her head for a bit! Very creative!! - 9
06/30/2004 07:12:29 PM
Very very clever. If either the speaker or the blocks were in focus it would have been a 10. I'll give you an 8

Makes me think how many shots it must have took! A Fave!
06/30/2004 05:44:10 PM
ahhh...now I can see what it is!. Must have been really loud!! Nice creative idea...
06/30/2004 05:18:21 PM
Well done!
06/30/2004 04:17:13 PM
wow, nice idea!
06/30/2004 03:21:05 PM
Verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry Gooooooooooood Thinking
U must get Blue
06/30/2004 01:51:30 PM
Very clever.
06/30/2004 11:30:44 AM
Creative and compelling. Interested in how you did it.
06/30/2004 08:18:43 AM
Fantastic idea
good luck
06/30/2004 05:48:08 AM
Good idea!
I have only a question: how many photo did you take before taking this one with the word "loud" correct? Did you tied with a longer time of exposure?
06/30/2004 04:12:38 AM
Wow - what a great idea for this challenge. Might have a bit more impact with higher contrast, but it's a really nice photo that shows amazing imagination.
06/30/2004 02:27:43 AM
Awesome ;)
06/30/2004 12:35:34 AM
Nice one.
06/30/2004 12:29:22 AM
Very cool picture!
