Post Challenge:

I knew this would not score well, but it really summarizes my year 2010 and represents my art so well, that I had to put it in the challenge.

What an honor and a joy to get all of these thoughtful comments and the favs. Thank you all for that! Really, I would rather have touched a few than appealed to the masses.

Heisenberg's principle, and like the principle will no doubt appeal to the few.

it is so fitting that this image received an "eye", maybe Paul should have given it two :). Marvelous work, Alicia, great use of Lensbaby!

There you go. A bunch of weird people who appreciate your sensitivity.

What a fantastic set of comments you collected with this! You nailed this one. Who cares about the mass appeal vote when you can pull in that kind of appreciation? I need to star doing more weird stuff like this.

i love your quirkyness and it looks like i'm not the only one .. four favs .. trouble is there are a lot of ppl who cant see the wood for the trees .. or something .. anyhooooooo .. i think this is tremendous, so out'v the box, nearly haunting and of course eccentric (in a very good way) .. :)

I'm pretty sure this has gotten creamed and pureed by the popular vote, but personally, I have to give it high marks for the weird factor. I suspect this one will have a small but appreciative audience.

I wonder why. Surreal beauty. The hands in the eyes are great but I love the hair best

i've always loved the story you've tried to tell through your dolls...and this is no exception.

It takes guts to enter an image like this. You shall be rewarded :D

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Alicia, I liked this image when I saw it before and I am still a fan. The back story to the image has stayed with me and I find your image resonates with its meaning and motive. The selective focus, the darkly burnt borders and the mauve-ish hues all work so well.

Critical stuff: Its slight off-centredness troubles me just a tad.

Overall: Thoughtful, careful, well-crafted work.

Oh wow. This brought me back to the fabulous Wotever challenge, and your awesome doll series. So glad to see you submitted one.

Still think this is very daring and makes you look more than twice, love your mind!

So wonderfully bizarre and beautifully executed too. It will probably be largely dismissed as a novelty entry, which will be a huge underestimation of it. But that's really the very point it's making, yes? The comfort of sameness and familiarity versus the discomfort of perceptual audacity? I love your photograph, and am thrilled to now see it hanging on my imaginary 2010 wall. It's looking pretty bloody singular even there, as well. Thank you.

What a surprise when this popped up. Thanks for daring to be different, fav.

Profoundly twisted and hopelessly bizarre. Why does everything look the same indeed! Thanks for giving us something different.

Okay, so I am no pro but here goes
Pros: interesting subject, catches the eye
Cons: grainy, out of focus, vignette is over done, and maybe "to intersting" for mainstream.

just an opinion
02/14/2011 03:31:10 PM
Wow.... uhh... if this is your best work of the year... I'm thinking I don't want to see your worst. ;) (But, I don't want to see MY worst, either...LOL!)

This is not the kind of image I enjoy... but I can see that it's well done. I do like the processing. (not voting)

I love the artiness of this...going to give it a 7 for that reason :)
