ROFLMBOPOF THIS IS EXCELLENT!!!! I love everything about this. What a tribute to the classic movie. Great focus and eye for detail. Mrs. Robinson is literally rolling over in her grave (Ann Bancroft - may she rest in peace).

Thanks for the big chuckle. I just stumbled onto this under the humorous category. GREAT!!!!!

Interesting recreation with that gream-like feel. Bumping up.

The strong backlight, bland expression on the guy's face and overly soft focus make this a rather poor shadow of the scene it tries to mimic. I think that the square crop of the image works against you as well. The focal point of the image (even if it isn't in sharp photographic focus) is the leg, which is horizontal. The repetition of the horizontal theme in the blinds is good (despite the harsh light). The vertical posture of the guy would complement rather than conflict with the theme if the leg were placed higher in the frame (preferably by moving the camera closer to the ground) and making the crop more landscape than square. Even if this results in more negative space, I think that the stronger presentation would more than make up for it.

I must say, graduation had a very different meaning to me, but very nice image. Seems I've seen this somewhere before however. Image has nice dreamy effect, but I always have a hard time with the lack originality. <6>

The composition is great, however the soft focus in this instance does not create a dream like atmosphere for me..

Mrs Robinson revisited. Very nice compositionally. I like how her leg cuts him in half, it seems to draw your eye into the center. Very nice! 9.5

Mysterious. Eye-catching. It makes you wonder what is happening, what he's thinking. Nice dreamy effect.

Great, love it. The feathering seems to make it hard to look at, maybe softer would of worked better here. 9

10+ I hope people know the movie. Mrs. Robinson you've got nice legs. lol
TOO good.

This is Dustin Hoffman!!!! Excellent idea and well done. Might be better having flat wall as a background, the light that comes through the blinds created some hot spots that could have been burned some. 9.
