Hmm, some light humor. A" knee jerk funny." I'm de-lighted. A new twist on lights.
It's all ok, just kidding about your joke.

imaginative... but ultimately doomed to failure :-)

I don't usually like puns, but this is cute. If you could have found a way to have the lights on and the background darkened, this coulda been a 9 or 10.

I rated this a "1" because I was looking for neon as a color - not as a play on words. Cute thought, but I don't think it fits at all. Just my opinion.

quite an imagination you have there!

Funniest one so far, good play on words

nice word game idea but the composition is too disparate: the fjeans abric and the floor compete too strongly against the bulbs
  Photographer found comment helpful.

:-)))
Maybe the bulbs should have been vertical and the whole thing back lit .

The light is a bit harsh, and the shadow to the upper left is a little distracting, but otherwise a great photo. You've got the focus on the lights, and the shallow DOF has the denim just out of focus, really drawing the eye to the glass work.

I might have been tempted to remove the writing from the top of the standard bulb though, as the 'double text' look from the shadow makes it look a little out of focus in that area.

I feel that the picture is slightly 'top heavy' though, possibly a lighter dennim to lighten the top of the frame, or a even a naked knee, which would of course allowed you to enter in two challenges for the price of one. Maybe a white sheet of paper just out of frame on the left to give some fill lighting to the shadows would have worked as well.

I got a giggle out of this, so it deserves a long comment :-). a solid 8.

Didn't "literally" fit the challenge (florescent light on the right),
but do give you credit for your imgaination, wit & title.
Funny one! ((5))

Extra points for funny! As a photo, I think that your model wearing shorts would have gotten the idea of "knee" across better - I'm not sure I would have got it the way it is without the title.

This is the most original way of not meeting the challenge! Very very clever idea.

Lovely and crisp, excellently cheeky title, would've been a ten if the jeans were blue. 9

Well, if nothing else, you and I think somewhat alike... I was contemplating a shot of someone purchasing a knee for the botany ("bought-a-knee") challenge :) UPDATE... and now that I'm voting on the Botany challenge, I see someone else (you?) had THAT same idea!

Fun, but I think you might have been able to create more interest through a different choice of pants material?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2004 10:02:16 PM
Great concept, it;s just unfortunate that the shot isn't perfectly in focus. The lighting seems a bit off as well. The world needs more people that think outside the box like this.

I wish I could tell you how to fix up this shot, if you were looking to reshoot it. All I know is that there would be a bunch of experimenting.
