If you buy someone a fake rolex, maybe you are the cheap bastard. Thanks for this entry, it is a welcome change from the overly mushy sentiments portrayed in the umpteen diamond entries. As far as your photograph, you have done a good job as the watch does look both cheap and fake.

Wonderful - Looks like something SNL would use on their show! 9 for uniqueness, clarity and tonal value.

LOL funny! Composition is good, lighting is good as well. There's a wierd angle on the watch that makes it 2D... i don't see any DOF and since the background is pure white, it makes the whole thing less impressive. All the edges are soften on the watch as well, which is also wierd. Nice tho. 7

I absolutley love this and its well done. I'd prefer a larger font with better placement. Capitalization would help too. Crisp shot and great comp. Very funny too.

such a nice break from the more mundane shots and text. funny stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 09:45:19 PM
Very funny! Nice photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 04:00:31 PM
You're out of the date window for the Challenge...or has the watch stopped!!!!! Very funny and yet really quite professional. I have to say that my pref. is for a light pieces against a dark background rather than this high key approach but overall I like it (my wife wants to know where you got it too for some reason).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 02:54:51 PM
funny text... watch is crooked, though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 01:45:02 PM
Made me giggle. Thanks LOL.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 01:04:00 PM
That's a fake - really? ;^) Nice composition and lighting overall. I wish the date on the watch wasn't quite so dark. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 12:39:25 PM
This is so funny. It's so professional looking, then you read it and bust out laughing. It really is a great photo. It's incredibly sharp, and stands out. The type and color of text compliment your watch perfectly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 11:49:42 AM
I'm giving a 9 here. Glare on the lower left takes away a little, but this is a great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2005 08:10:13 AM
IT's not cheep, it's smart. I have bought a few fake Brietlings for some friends. Don't tell them though.

good clear shot and oh so funny
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 06:47:40 PM
I love the humor in this! Nicely lit, though the lighting is a bit harsh evidenced by the shadows on the face. Sharp, clean. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 05:41:47 PM
hilarious! 10 for the pure comedy of it all! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 04:19:12 PM
OK, this caught me off guard.
Thanks for a good chuckle on this one.
Composition is quite good, as is the lighting. Nicely done!

* as he goes on to the next one with a smile...*

04/25/2005 03:46:34 PM
ha, ha. Nice composition, reflections, and contrast with the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 03:31:15 PM
Yes, a great observation. My only concern is an a holiday to Turkey I purchased abot 10 of the above for family and friends. (I did tell then there were probably fake as they only cost a few pounds)
does that make me a cheap B'stard or just cheap. Anyway this is a good foto and a great advertisment.. well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 03:05:33 PM
Funny one... Maybe the cheapo bastard can use Photoshop to clone out those scratches on the watch before its given away. LOL... I give you a 7 for guts as well.

04/25/2005 02:18:29 PM

hilarious!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 01:26:09 PM
Your idea is great. LOL
The issue I have is the photo seems alittle underexposed and the text does not stand out. It is still a great idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 12:19:49 PM
A good sense of humor. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 11:30:57 AM
I feel that this image needs a bit of softness to take some of harshness that is in the relfective surface of the watch and might obscure some of what I see as noise in this image.

Other then that, I like the composition of the image, the placement of the "Rolex" is nice and shows it off nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 10:46:44 AM
Cute, but language probably won't work to your advantage.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 10:19:45 AM
The only thing I would change is the time so the hands don't cover the name of the watch (3:48 works well)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 10:16:24 AM
HAHAHAHA! 9

lol, nice ad
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 07:12:19 AM
Funny! Is slant on watch deliberate, keeping with theme? Unforturnately, a less attractive image for voting purposes (though effective on humour front).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 04:50:17 AM
Not a bad image just a bit soft on the edges
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2005 04:48:27 AM

04/25/2005 01:54:42 AM
Teh Funneh. lighting in the lower left corner of the watch causes problems, other then that great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
