Technically - acceptable. The scene is quite dull though. Mark =6.

too bad this guy didnt have anything constructive to say...

I feared this would not do so well despite fitting the challenge better than most, IMO.
Technically it's a nice shot... too bad folks can see past there own crap.
Takes guts to do this. Big Ups for it!


I completely agree. I scored you an 8. Good job.

Sorry.

Your image may be good to the masses today, but I tend to think the opposite, and my opinion counts.

4 from me.

Effective! Nice journalistic style.

I like the high contrast sepia here. Not sure the subject and the image it self is very interesting visually (although the message is).

Print is very well done. Nice blacks, strong whites and a good tonal range. Yoiu are probably tossing out half of the voters reactions by picking such a controversial subject.

Funny.

Your right.... big hope. :)

I like this photo, it's well taken and it conveys the theme well. I like the duotone in it and the framing.
08/28/2004 10:14:58 AM
I hope this too.
08/28/2004 03:33:44 AM
I was thinking along the same lines but I thought it would be too political. That said, I hope!

Wow, that poster looks like one of the old communist propoganda posters from the 60's! You framed it up nicely, the tones are nice. Scary concept....think HItler, Mussolini, Kerry....

I love the colors and composition.
08/26/2004 07:02:53 PM
Haha! This is perfect. Exactly what we all should be hoping for!
08/26/2004 10:40:15 AM
Ummmm. . . sorry. . .this does not depict hope -- it depicts a nightmare :)

Don't agree with the message, but it reflects a certain sentiment pretty well. My eye is drawn to the sky in the upper left, which is highly exposed. I understand that it would have been difficult to capture, but the same scene without the vehicles below would be an improvement in my opinion. Overall, good effort though. 6
08/25/2004 07:30:03 PM
Great idea...I almost did something similar...automatic 10!
08/25/2004 05:20:33 PM
Fitting sepia toning, it's about all I can say....
08/25/2004 04:38:58 PM
I like your use of duotone to make this different from other street shots. The overexposed sky is a little distracting, but it does add contrast to the photo. Overall about a 6.
08/25/2004 12:58:56 PM
i am curious how you are doing because i was going to do a politically themed picture but did not want to be bashed because of views not picture quality
08/25/2004 11:30:53 AM
10 for really meeting the challeng.
08/25/2004 01:25:45 AM
I do not like challenge titles in the title of pictures, but... VOTE JOHN KERRY ON TUESDAY!
08/25/2004 01:08:15 AM
given the fact this country is divided you probably will have the most enteresting score. good luck:) a Staunch independent! :)
