Agreed. This belongs in Lenswork, whether the number is obvious or not doesn't matter, it's the composition and its sepia-toned beauty that cries out for better recognition.

John thanks for your post that lead me to this shot.
I didnt view all the images for this challenge and I definitely missed this one!
It's a great shot and a cracking black and white.
JJ were the items actually arranged in the 007 format already or did you move them there as props?

Phew -- NOW I get it! I honestly looked at this over and over again in an attempt to get it... now I feel like an idiot. I still rated it highly, and think it was indeed an underrated shot this time around. I could see this hanging in a Cracker Barrel restaurant :)

You have been so unfairly judged in this challenge. I hope you dont let this discourage you from submitting in the future. This is a great shot with a great title. STILL a 10 from me.

This photograph is so grossly underrated -- I'm very disappointed. To all those who didn't take the time to 'get this', you should definitely take another look. Again, wonderful submission -- definitely on my list of favorites for the site.

Really nice find. Curious to know if this was set up or if it's always like this. I really like the sepia tones here. Focus and clarity are great. I like the angle as well. I think it's a good shot with the man in it, but I would also like to see it cropped tighter around just the 007. LIghting conditions are very good. no hot spots or distracting shadows. good luck in the challenge.

007. This took me a while to find. I just thought, "What's with the guy and the wine?" Nice composition.

I am afraid that I can't see how this meets the challenge.

Does he have a license to pill? I am guessing this is JJ's. I'm probably wrong about the photographer but I love this composition. It is the best shoot of the week.... Definitely a 10. Bob

Eh, may not fit some folk's definition for 'naturally occuring'. But, I like it.

Clever!

Very cool photo, but I'm not sure where the number is??? I'm going to vote on it's artistic merit in case I'm missing something.

Oh man this one is the WINNER in my view. It's so clever and great! Excellent! A 10!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot! Perfect focus and composition. The light sepia tone makes it. For me it meets the challenge. My only favourite this week. Good luck!

Is Raymond 007? I get it, and I think it's a wonderful photgraph!!
I love the wine carrier and the bottles. 007 is about to go have a good time.

This is a great shot.. The use of B&W hides the numbers and the adition of "RayMond" gives the shot the needed human presence. I laughed (and groaned) when I saw this - not many pictures tickle me like this. Congratulations!

In my opinion, this does not meet the challenge, which required that the subject be naturally occurring (not manufactured in any way), which is a shame, because this is a truly outstanding photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2003 12:33:09 PM
I dont see the number. Oh I got it. LOL, 007. Very clever, but unfortunately it is manufactured. High marks for originality and humour.

Great picture, although I'm not sure what number I'm to be looking for. Could it be a sideways 8 with the wash boards? Still a very nice shot.

007 - Bond, James Bond, This one took some thought. It's great. Nice color. I'm glad to see the main subjects are not dead center on this one, it brings a great deal of balance to the shot. - Nice Work.

This is an interesting shot, but what is meeting the challenge here? 3 Jak
03/10/2003 01:03:28 AM
OK I took me about 2 seconds to see it, but... this is great. Good title too. I hope everyone gets it. 10
03/10/2003 12:58:03 AM
HILARIOUS. It took me a second to get everything, but well, well done. Perfectly executed photograph, and a marvelous job with the challenge. This is my early pick for a winner. Well done again!

Great picture. Almost missed the 007! Great coloring (or lack there of) on this shot. Very moody, nostalgic.
