Same as Jutilda....I thought Clay Aiken when I saw the thumbnail as well!

I saw the thumbnail and thought: Clay Aiken. ROFL This is really cute.

cold body in the road and your image should have been in the 2 or 3rd spot.

This is an excellent self portrait. Very unique and well executed. The white border was a great choice as well.

There were quite a few in this challenge that made me smile - but none did as good a job of that as this! Congratulations.

This was *my* highest rated. I love the humor involved.. and you sure have a penchant for green shirts. Nice job. You and I should have been #1 and #2. We can fight over which one later. Congrats on surving the DPC Popularity Contest :)

It's probably great that it's probably you...this is such a unique idea for a self portrait! :o)

Oh ... my ... god ...!!!

An excellent shot, the blurring works really well and, well, I can't say anymore because it's impossible to stay serious while looking at this.

: )
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2005 07:36:15 PM
This is simply cool... I'm not a fan of what looks like manually added blur, but the overall efect is great. Well done.. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2005 05:50:01 PM
i have to guess this was blurred using a mask. the wrist seems like it should be in focus, if the eye and the knuckles are...

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2005 03:23:24 PM
Great effect on this shot, almost looks like a 'lensbaby'. I really like it, good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

cool effect makes for a different type of portrait ... well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2005 05:17:13 PM
You look like you could be in a norman rockwell painting. Great expression, and I personally like the blur that you have used. 9

Hey Árni Nice Shot (btw if thats not u then really feeling dumb...lol)

as always nice image and GL
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2005 03:22:03 PM
Oh my! It's Clay Aitken! Seriously, I love the soft halo blur and the focus right in the centre. The shirt's not bad either.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2005 02:27:41 PM
I like this shot a lot for its quirkiness but also the surprisingly good effect of the selective blur. It would think the blur would look artificial - but it really draws the focus to your eye and your expression in a pleasing way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/19/2005 01:22:50 PM
This is really good! The apparently shallow depth of field works very well. I like the colors too. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo, I like the use of blurring.

Just great!!!!!!

What the.. the DOF seems whacked.. PS job?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/18/2005 01:04:53 AM
that's pretty cool...is that graussian blue or a lens baby? Either way, looks really neat. I hope you get a ribbon -- this is clearly the best I've seen thus far and I'm about 95% through all the photos. Your border works well with the photograph too! g'luck 10!

02/18/2005 01:02:54 AM
very cool photo, it has a very oddly amusing quality to it and the colors are great.
bumping up to a 10

This had better not be Arnit. You don't need any more ribbons! 10

Returning for comment. A nice humorous shot--Interesting expression and use of shallow depth of field.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2005 05:31:00 PM

As always...
Wonderful photo!

Composition: 6
Technical: 7
Appeal: 9, Your expression and pose made me chuckle.
Challenge: 8, Shot has strong character
Overall Calculated Average Score: 8, If I am correctly recognizing you, I really dug your 100 portraits in 100 days. The originality required for completing that project is admirable.

Interesting and different
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 08:39:03 PM
Funny. The well focus eye radiates that jocular state which then is supported by fist and twirl in mouth. A good tiltle also. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 08:29:38 PM
i don't know anything about portraiture, so i'm using your image as a guinnea pig as to what i think i would or wouldn't do in this situation, as well as what i notice and get out of your image.

what a killer expression! the lighting and focus are tops. not too keen on the colors, but, then again, this is an image that's all about you. i hate it when i'm wrong, but i have to guess lens-baby, as i know of nothing else to produce such a weird area of focus. well, whatever. this is a cool shot, and i hope it does well for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 05:00:28 PM
Lovely picture!! The colors are so neat, and so is the expression!! 10 :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 04:58:18 PM
I think the green and grey combination works well for this photo. The pose is original. The blurring looks like PS work, and there is nothing wrong with that, but I wonder what it would have looked like just shot at F/1.8 or 2.8. Nice effect though and a good photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 02:30:10 PM
he he, cool. I assume the shallow DOF was done after-the-fact, but it's pretty convincing if you don't think too hard about it. nice and sharp on the stuff you meant to leave in focus. hilarious facial expression as well.

well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2005 10:40:31 AM
I can't quite figure how you achieved the defocus, but however you did it, it works. Nicely done image. 10

9 - Great shot arnit. But I'm not a huge fan of selective blur, though I love DOF! :)

Great shot. This is a comical profile pic you can truely be proud of. I feel that you used the shallow DOF very well in this shot. The lighting is good and the pose is priceless. One of my top 3 pics of the challenge.

WOW, you look like Clay Aiken! and that is not a bad thing, 1000s of young girls love Clay Aiken.

This is one of my favorites in the challenge! The image is quirky enough, but the title is like a cherry on top for the humor! It makes me laugh out loud! Your expression is great, and the shallow depth of field works well here (I usually don't like it this narrow for a portrait). Your lighting is perfect as well. Bumping this up to a 10. Good Luck. By the way, my first thought was that Clay Aiken was participating this week!

02/15/2005 12:20:57 AM
This is the first photo in this challenge that made me sit back and say "hey, that's really something neat." I love the DOF, choice of colors and your expression. A "10" from me.

Super - fantastic - great what more can one say - the colors bode perfectly - better than any other image I have seen on here for a few months even - focus is perfect and style is cool.

A perfect 10 if ever there was one.
