ERRRR......first up...this is my youngest son.....!!! He is very tiny!

Okay...I know that this is similiar to the pose in this image below.

625835.jpg

This isn't the one that I wanted to enter...but due to it being Basic Editing I couldn't fix that stupid white bit of fluff near the shoe and the lighting over the shoes.

Here is the one that I wanted to enter.

633957.jpg

I have put together a print for a montage of these images. There are 2 different sizes available.

631216.jpg
Up to 24' x 36'
30' x 40'

I have also put together a mini slideshow of the outtakes...it only goes for 2 minutes.

Send In The Clowns...turn up your volume.

Thanks for choosing the "Clowns" challenge and not Spectacles. You are on fire and it's better to stay far from you. Congrats again, and again.

01/16/2008 09:24:46 AM
Nice work, Judi! Congrats! =)

You know, I don't know if you guys are Monty Python fans down under, but whenever I hear the "Send in the Clowns" tune, I can't help but think:

Da da dum dum dum,
Da da dum dum dum!
Da da dum dum dum!!
Bring out'yer dead!

Weird, I know! =D

You're poor kids. I bet as soon as you say "Honey, could you come here for a minute" they get scared. hahahaha

Good shot. Congrats on yet another ribbon.

You are an image machine! What a super series. Totally amazing to the amateur likes of me.

Thought this might be yours because of the pose similarity but, again, a great shot. WTG, Judi!

01/16/2008 12:39:13 AM
Maybe the powers that be should change it to a 4 ribbon thing so that 3 OTHER people can ribbon once in a while! LOL!!!

Way to go, Judi!

01/16/2008 12:37:51 AM
ribbons in 3 out of your last 5 entries??! on a roll, great image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 12:34:53 AM
OK, new rule set - Judi is now banned from entering photos of her children in any more challenges. The cuteness factor is an unfair advantage.

Only kidding. Another great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 12:24:33 AM
WOW Judi, are you on a roll or what!! Thought this was yours, had the trademark pose. I'm going to have to visit soon and hope that some of your photographic genius rubs off one me. ;)

Her expression seems to be praying to "please get this over with"
Don't forget to pay the model in candy.

Now this is just not fair, leave some ribbons for the rest of us......! Great image, very well done again.......! I which I had half your imagination... :O)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2008 12:09:50 AM
Judi I knew this was you and I told my wife you were on your way to another ribbon. You are on a roll girl, but I do think you should slow down a bit so I can catch up to you in the ribbon race. It shouldn't take me any longer than 200 years at my current pace.

YOU ROCK JUDI

01/09/2008 11:25:55 PM
I'm new here, but that pose looks familar. Stick with a winner!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:33:02 PM
A lot of effort made with the makeup and costume, but I feel it lacks inspiration
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 08:44:42 PM
Didn't I just see this child pose in this manner in another challenge?!! I love the bright colors against the black. Great make-up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 03:07:07 PM
Hmm looks just like the pose that just won. I like the coloring. I would have left out the flower it is kind of distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 01:23:16 PM
i think this is Judi and her little daughter again ;) very simila pose to the JUST THINKING and the eyes somhow simillar :) nice image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:42:07 AM
Very colorful and nice props. The angles and curves made by his/her pose are fun. Hands look a little green from the reflection of the costume but then I don't see that as a huge problem for a clown.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:37:48 AM
nice shot but pose looks a little too familiar
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 10:28:03 AM

I love the pose and expression as well as the background. Great coloring.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 01:05:28 AM
Exellent setup...but way too saturated. And I think I just saw that child in another photo in this challenge...either that, or the makeup is a freakish coincidence...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2008 12:53:23 AM
Finally a clown shot where the clown does not look like it wants to kill me. Thank you for this shot. I like it a lot (9)
