I know it is supposed to be a photo of something metallic, but I love this picture anyway.

Too bad he did not have a mullet!

Love it!

Fits challenge=0
Wow factor/uniqueness=0

I'm assuming your going for the heavy metal on his shirt...if that is what that is on there. Nice try but your small image hurts you first, then the fact that it doesn't meet the challenge.

Good luck

Ah, heavy metal :)
06/28/2005 06:39:44 AM
Confused me for a moment... a leather and long hair might have got the point across better...

Way too small. Try using a bigger size.
06/27/2005 12:30:29 PM
The image is too small. Perhaps there is some relevance to the challenge that I can't see!
06/27/2005 07:13:50 AM
you can make your photo much bigger for dpchallenge, read this tutorial: //www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=26

caveat: i'm a beginner. that said...too small to really see what's going on. composition is sort of odd with almost his entire body in the image except his right ankle/foot with all the extra sky.
06/25/2005 07:10:53 PM
Well, it's just a snapshot of a dude in a Metallia T-shirt. Not terribly thought inspiring.
06/25/2005 04:53:45 PM
Doesn't say metal to me.
06/25/2005 12:33:36 PM
Yo! Bro! Akoona Mentada.
06/25/2005 12:14:11 AM
I would like to see this larger. :-)
06/24/2005 09:14:08 PM
too posed, doesn't work for metal for me 3
06/23/2005 07:42:42 PM
Except for a weak link with Metal music (the t-shirt) this has nothing to do with the challenge and the picture is way too small (just a hint: small picture never do well here)

Just not with this challenge.

my goal is to comment on every photo in this challenge..heres urs..good luck..photo is very small..please read the tutorial abot processing images for entry to avoid this problem in the future. good photo from what i can see but the description said : shiney metal,good conductor or electric: i feel u were going fo r more of a metal music approach which doesnt meet the challenge. its good to think "out of the box" but be prepared to have low scores as too "out of the box" thinking doesnt do well here. sorry..hope this helps
06/23/2005 10:36:03 AM
Interesting concept. I'm sure you've heard from others that it would be better to see the image larger. It's too small for me to tell, but I think that it may be a little out of focus? 4
06/23/2005 09:16:33 AM
Very imaginative! Would have like to have seen a larger photo, it's a bit small.
06/23/2005 05:26:25 AM
I so wish the picture was bigger.
06/22/2005 10:54:47 PM
Don't think this photo meets the challenge. Also, i'ts too small...hard to see. Nice position of the guy in the frame, though...good line.
06/22/2005 08:28:33 PM
I dont like it too good. I like it when people really stick to the challenge. I never look at the title before I vote. When I look at the post I want the first thing I think of to be the title of the challenge. This doesn't cut it, not even close. But we all have done it, so its ok....
06/22/2005 08:01:30 PM
You could argue that it meets the challenge in an out of the box way, although the description was pretty clear, but how is it a good photo? Plus, it's way to small.
06/22/2005 07:24:03 PM
Too bad he's only got metal in his veins, and not made of metal!
06/22/2005 06:23:26 PM
need to give us a bigger image use the 640 pixels
06/22/2005 04:10:22 PM
Would work better if this were larger. I don't even see any metal.
06/22/2005 03:51:42 PM
I see nothing metallic in this photo unless his shirt has something to do with it but cannot read what is on it - too small. Not sure why you submitted this photo.
06/22/2005 02:31:40 PM
You've lost me on this one!
06/22/2005 12:22:57 PM
good idea!
06/22/2005 11:56:50 AM
Too small !
06/22/2005 10:12:51 AM
Good idea, thought of it too, but doesn't meet challenge and is way too small
06/22/2005 09:56:04 AM
Metal ?!?!? Where is it ? 1
06/22/2005 09:51:57 AM
sure wish this was bigger in size ... 480x640 pixels ..
06/22/2005 07:32:36 AM
Photo is so small I can't make out much detail, but love your creativity!
06/22/2005 06:44:02 AM
Oh I get it... :)
06/22/2005 04:24:49 AM
Thumbnail to small...2
06/22/2005 03:11:27 AM
Nice idea - although I don't think it really fits the challenge - also could be bigger.
06/22/2005 12:35:19 AM
lets get dimensions better please.
06/22/2005 12:08:50 AM
Goin' for the brown, eh?
