Outstanding! Where can I buy the album? The light to dark flow, the gloomy waterscape, it's all great. You'll probably catch some criticism because the guitar player appears to be sitting in full sunlight from the right, but I don't care, the package works for me.

Great lighting! I like the use of negative space.Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2004 01:36:39 PM
One of the best this challenge, lighting and placement of text is superb

It's funny, because I would definitely consider this one of the "fun" challenges, where all the photos don't necessarily have to be great, but they must fit the challenge and be decent photographs. Most of the photos in this challenge seem pretty mediocre, because they're comical photos. Anyway, what I am TRYING to say here is that this is a genuinly good photograph; I could definitely see this on an album. Great job! This will probably be my only 10 for the challenge.

There are a lot of good photos in this contest, but this one looks more like a real album cover then any of them. 10

This one could certainly be wearing a ribbon very soon! I like the dramatic lighting here... excellent work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow...I don't know how you got this exposure to come out this good, but it really shows. The lighting and mood is superb. One of my favorites this round.

Can easily see this on a shelf as an album cover. Great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This has all the quality of a real Album cover.
Great lighting, good subject, excellent composition & nice lettering.
One of my favorites in this challenge! ((9))

This is a winner, just super 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent lighting, composition, and creation of negative space for your text. It would work better if the t-shirt didn't have text.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2004 05:07:58 PM
A simple shot with good execution and believable as an album cover. Not stunning, but good solid work. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Classy shot, great lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great Image. Excellent lighting and composition. Judicious use of text.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2004 11:20:07 PM
The tones are really stunning in this photo. I'm not crazy about the text. I think the drop shadow's a little heavy, and it'd be neat to have the text sit a little softer on the composition. Wonderful job, though, overall. Great band name, and the photo is definitely the highlight. 9.

I really like how this one whas captured and framed. Excellent composition, and honestly I can see this in a music store. Verry good one.

Simple, crisp and clean photo, and title is not as far fetched as most of them, nice job, it's my favorite in this challenge

Very nice off-centered composition. I like all the space in the frame. The color of the text goes along perfectly with the sky. (9)

It would also look good in B&W, great work, good luck...

nice use of semi-negative space. even though you can faintly see the horizon, the dark void works well. i like how you can just make out the horizon too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What in incredible album cover! His expression is intriguing and the way he's looking to his side and into the frame works very well. The lighting on the guitarist next to the rich darkness of the water behind - and yet not quite so dark that one can't see what the background is. Composition is superb. Text position and colour (matching his Tshirt) are excellent - not quite as keen on font choice but it's still good. This one is a definite 10. Excellent!

I like this one. Colors are good and the whole structure is very good.
Maybe the bottom left corner is a littlebit overexposed compared to the rest.
But anyway very well done, an 8
