My son is a martyr. *sigh*

I wish I knew something... ANYTHING... about lighting.

*sigh*

I also wish the wall were longer... I'd love to have had this scene without the window... just the blank wall. *sigh* But, that's what made me go TILT on the scene (which I really like... sort of a FunHouse kinda scene, I think).

I need a mansion. *grin*

Sad times though, about the two great frames that held two photos on that wall. I tried to get them to hang there "wind blown" and they crashed to the floor. They both broke. I'm very angry at myself for that.

*heavy sigh* Perhaps I can glue them. *sigh again*

The two things I stuck up there in their place, with the clock, are just cardboard mats with two pages torn from a magazine wherever I opened it and saw something that would fit.

The fan was not on. I wish I'd left it unplugged. I think that would have been fun. *grin*

Fluid? Here I thought it was an alien! I think that adds to the ambience, though. I think your kid is waiting for his reward. And with a great deal of resignation. :-) (Congrats on two on the front page at the same time.)

Congrats on the ribbon!

Great shot. You communicated the breeze from the fan very well.

What a cool dude,and blue really suits him.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the look on his face, too cool! Not sure why he has a girls scarf on though, maybe he didn't have any of his own. All the slanted objects work well, TOP 5!

I'm not a "fan" of dutch angles. I do like this, but I think it would work just as will without the dutch angle.

This is my highest pick of the challenge along with another.
The idea is good, and for this challenge original. Obviously reminiscent of the maxwell commercial.
Execution is good with important attention to details, especially the angle of the photos on the wall. the tilt helps the effect.
overall great job.

Lot of effort into this and a good choice for a boring theme. Still a lot to be desired, perhaps more motion blur, the blank stare at the camera doesn't fit with the scene. Still one of the best of the bunch.

02/18/2013 12:43:37 AM
Love the idea and implementation. Waiting to see it ribbon :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You put his Mama's scarf on this good lookin' dude! LOL Your attention to details is Fantastic! Only a true genius could do this!!!
