Challenge: Fine Arts: Exhibit I (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Humorous/weird
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G
Date: Mar 7, 2010
Date Uploaded: Mar 7, 2010

Maybe this idea derived from all the poorly lit family photos I see that bother me all the time. I don't know. This is my daughter ... This was very quick but i knew exactly what I wanted and this was pretty much it; lighting such that the normally important, essental elements are missing, and extraneous parts tell a different story.
It also represents a bit of spontenaety on my part and was fun to see how light drew this for me.

Have a bluebird!

Fascinating, reminds me of a pink floyd faceless figure.

7 - Personal preference, but I like this better with just the neck and head.

Outstanding, a 9 from me..

bizarre. My take...what a couple must imagine, as they contemplate adoption of an older child. They meet, and get to "know" the child, but more will certainly follow after the child's rebirth.

Speaking subjectively, I think you are right on target with what this challenge requested. Excellent and original. A bit spooky, too. This viewer asks: Is there a face?

Brilliant work of ligth and texture. Well composed, has a instant mystical feel. Good work.

A faceless enigma. She is watching me from her hiding place and I can't tell anything about her. Very Good!

Sufficiently weird to qualify as "fine art". Personally I don't connect, but I'm sure it will do well. On the technical side, I notice hot highlights in the hair, which isn't really a big deal. I enjoy the softness of the (faceless) model coupled with the coarse texture of the curtains.

Now that's creepy! Very effective.

One of my 10s - super-marvellous and inspired! How apt that it should remain untitled. Guessing ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' njsabs

what a different picture...love the shadows

Would I hang this on my wall. Probably not, but still an intersting picture. However I judge on what I would hang in my apartment. For your courage I give you a 6.
