15 1s that should all not be counted. How many of those people are voting like that because they felt that it didn't follow the rules when the rules clearly state that you don't knock a pic if you feel it doesn't follow the rules. This deserved a much better score for sure

So under-rated. Firstly a brilliant photo. Secondly, a brilliant parody. Thirdly, brilliantly funny.

I'm a recovering member of the Critique Club. Consider this a Critique.

_______________THANK YOU for all you nice comments.______________

This was one of the most fun shots i've done for this site... and apparently one of mine that has drawn a lot of skepticism about my methods. The photo was challenged and validated by the site council. i guess i'll be careful about "lettering" in my shots in the future, so as not to draw the ire of the doubters ;-)

THANKS AGAIN!

I must add my two-cents, praising the workmanship. And I would ask for a re-vote if I were you.

I really don't understand the low score on this one. It does make you wonder whether people voted low because they thought it wasn't basic editing (silly people)

Anyway, wonderful idea, well done, and I think it deserves a bluebird!

This was my highest rated image in the challenge. Fifteen 1s! Even if they suspected a rules violation, why don't people vote on the merits of the image and refer you for validation as per proper procedure.

I look forward to learning how you did this shot without the DQ, I am very impressed at the creativity in this and it is one of my favorites from this challenge.

lol
I like the idea - the green almost looks like a laser pointer.

Imaginative, creative and funny! Very well done.

how do you do this in basic?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2010 11:19:29 AM
LOL - indeed, it looks a bit like the Alien eggs. A bit over-processed to my taste though.
I only hope that the text is not added on the photograph but is indeed a part of the photograph. If added on, I believe you will get a DQ.

Pretty sure this will be DQ'd for not meeting basic editing rules even if it is a very clever idea.

Nice idea.

Cool Concept, but I suspect this may get DQd for text.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2010 04:07:22 PM
fabulous in every way! The color, composition and title really work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2010 03:44:35 PM
to bad you put the writing on this...that will get you Dq'd...ok...not changing my vote but I like the lighting that you used and it's a great idea....

Im sure this is unintentional and Its really a pity that you added the text in the photo. I believe you are going to be DQ. I really like this pic and the creativity in it. Scored it a 7.

03/03/2010 05:04:38 PM
very well done- top 10

You may not know that printing is not allowed on a photo, though I'll give you the benefit while voting and assume the words were printed on a sign hanging above the egg (however unlikely). Will be curious to read how you lit this. Good concept -- I remember the original Alien poster very well!

"Details: Your photograph must contain an egg. Be creative, and have fun!"
DMC (Does Meet Challenge)

Best in show. An Egg. It's Creative. I had Fun looking at it and reading the title. 10.
I'm expecting a validation for the lettering, but it's printed and pasted as BG no doubt...
