My entry in "Master of Disguise" surprised me, re the good comments against the couple of "unfavorable" comments, re there fear of clowns.....CLOWNS are a "MASTER" of Disguise as it is a well known fact.

I try and always vote asking the questions, does the image suit the challenge, then is it a good photo, not vote on the fact that you have a fear of something or you domt like say clowns in this instance.

I agree that everyone has a right to have there own opinion re votes & comments, but it should be on the image. Am I wrong in thinking this way.

Thank you to everyone who commented as I am very pleased with the result..... 43rd place with an average vote of 5.500

personally I thought your photo was very good - even though I am one who gets freaked out by clowns.

I doubt if people with Coulrophobia would even click on the thumbnail.

Personally, I hate clowns.
But I voted you a high number for the colours.

Don't worry about comments....just tick em all and move on.

I would've given this an average score as the entry didn't have that nice crisp look that I prefer. The clowns nose looks a little blurry.

I don't mind clown shots but flags and cats on the other hand.... :)

Keep up the good work Shez.

cheers,
bazz.

I liked it and Clowns actually have a fear of me - although I don't think there's a phobia word for it.

But I can see where people thought he is not a master of disguise since I saw this guy downtown and he kept telling me he was dressed a Pirate!

Congrats on one of your best scores and I hope ya feel better.

Mine was one of the strange comments during the challenge but I gave you a 7.

He didn't look sad to me, he looked angry. That's what I liked about the picture.

I'm sure it's not just Clowns that have a fear of you .' . substr('//ganjataz.com/01smileys/images/smileys/Mad%20Jester.gif', strrpos('//ganjataz.com/01smileys/images/smileys/Mad%20Jester.gif', '/') + 1) . '
One just has to look at Image 252526 and that's enough to put the willies up anyone. ;-)

Like so many other people here, i too hate clowns! But i still clicked on your photo as i just love the use of color and the expresion on the face. i thought it was a great shot and scored you high.

I find this picture with a very crisp and good focus, the nose is clearly of a substance that is a bit blurry but it is not the focus at all. The lighting is also good and the colours are great, I gave it a 8 because of all that.
When people "voters" say I hate this and I hate that, they just shouldn't vote because they are clearly with prejustice (don't know the word) and therefore can not take right decisions.
The same thing is with cat, dog or whatever photos. You can have a real good photo but it is voted down because someone doesn't like "that kind of photos"
