Saw this on Digg. You can ignore the "shop'd" comments, that's an inside joke that spreads around the comments section of every photograph or image that gets 'dugg.'

The really basic compelling question I have is... do you have another keyboard? I'm thinkin' this one isn't going to be of much use anymore... :-)

I like this photo. It made me gasp out loud! It's very creative and yet totaly plausible. Very compelling and yes, it is a good photo in terms of photography.

Congratulations on the ribbon!

"Allowed"?..

I believe that the DPC site would benefit if there were more interesting/artistic images and less boring/tacky ones. You yourself wrote that you didn't like this image. I concluded that we owe it purely to the WPL that this mediocre image was posted to the site.

There is nothing personal, I am only discussing this image, which you have posted for public discussion. Respectfully, I think that this image is tacky, primitive, and contains no photographic merit. Is this bad manners?

but not creativity in photography.

Kris, don't get me wrong, I also didn't think this showed photographic skills and photographic creativity(which you obviously have) and therefore didn't deserve to win on a photography site.

i don't mean to sound ungrateful ... i'm just surprised it won. it scored higher than images which were clearly superior (of course, this is my opinion)

thanks everyone for you kind words
02/28/2007 03:17:10 PM
uhhh.. I guess I'm a crappy judge of an interesting & compelling image, but I like this FOR THE CHALLENGE it was entered into.It bums me out to hear you, as the photographer didn't really like it because I think based on the majority of the comments & the fact that it won a ribbon, you and 21.gif agenkin are in the minority. It may be cheesy, but it was creative, it was well lit, the focus is perfect & overall based on the merit of the photo, it was well done. It seems that if you are voting based on comparison's to other photo's, one might feel it wasn't as dramatic or challenging to capture, but that's not how I vote.. Besides, we all know what opinions are like..... (you can fill in the rest)

You missed the point completely. I don't at all wish to discuss your images (which are quite good, but that's not the point). You're statement was that dpchallenge is somehow weaker because I've submitted an image that is not as good as someone else's. You're reasoning implies that every person new to photography should not participate here because only images which YOU think will benefit the site are allowed.

My image shouldn't have won ... but it hasn't weakened the site, which is the same as saying the site would have benefited without it.

Hilarious that you're pointing out my bad manners. Don't take what I'm saying as a person attack, take it for what it is - which is a defense of what you call tacky, mediocre images and whether or not they are a detriment to the site.

What do my entries have to do with this discussion? It is bad manners to turn a discussion onto the commenter's own images; if you feel like discussing them, feel free to post a comment under any of them.

We are talking about *your* entry and your own admission that you submitted something that you yourself considered a bad image into a challenge just for the benefit of your WPL participation.

People are going to submit photos that they think will do well, regardless of if they are in the WPL or not...:) I like this photo. It illustrates the idea of hate quite well. Set-ups really show creativity. Good job!

This is not what I was implying.

My point was that (if I was reading you correctly) you would not have submitted this tacky, mediocre image if not for the WPL, which would have been a benefit for the site (well, at least from where I am standing).

no, you aren't the only one ... I agree with you 100% and I'm shocked that this could win. I'm in the WPL, that's the only reason I entered this photo. I don't think it's very good and I dislike images like this ... but I also thought it could pull an average score which would help my team.

no offense taken ... this image should not have won a ribbon

(edit to add) - I feel this way about a lot of images that win here, so I don't feel guilty at all about submitting an image I dislike in an attempt to win. It's just a game we're playing :)

Am I the only one who thinks this is rather chessy?
Maybe it's b/c I have an inherent distaste for such obvious setups aimed squarely at attaining the inverse of a DNMC.

Great idea, and congrats on the ribbon.

I tried something like this myself, with less luck and skill, and ironically fell for ....

... myself!

By the way, about a third of my keys are still out of order to this day, as this turned out as the solution that FINALLY taught me to type without looking at the keys all the time! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn to type while NOT looking at the keyboard.

But if someone really hated the other person (fiance) then im pretty sure they would do a lot worse then mix up the letters on a keyboard.
Nice Job Tho!!
