My snake Homer again, who may soon become the poster child of DPC, depending on how this image does!

Before anyone gets any ideas whenever they see Homer, there are potentially 11 photographers who have fairly easy access to Homer. Lete me know if you want to borrow him for a shot!

6.7 - that means Homer is a poster child? :) We're going to know your whole family soon! :) Congrats on such a wonderful finish!

I almost dismissed this shot as a representation of three kinds of rope, which would have made for a somewhat more 'pedestrian' choice. Glad I clicked to view the real enlargement!
Good, simple composition, captures the essentials to make the shot work.

I love the lighting and I also love the texture shown by the perfect focus. 9.

This has got to be one of my favorites! I like the use of the snake for surprise and humor. The photo appeals, too, good focus and composition and the colors are brilliant. Great detail, did the snake sign a release??

I love this picture because it takes you by surprise. The layout is very formal and the bend in the snake's neck is the perfect counterpoint to the hose and rope, making it clear just who's alive and who's not. I think you'll do very well in this challenge!

Really fun comkposition. Maybe you could have balance the neutrals in a better way. Even so, I must give you an 8.

yikes it's hat snake again - much as I hate him this is a spectacular set up and almost a perfect picture. Something about the uneven background makes me give it a nine.

I love it! that's really cool

Unless I am mistaken this is the same snake that I went back to coment on a few weeks ago. Definately a beautiful snake and a very nice approach to the challenge. I can't believe I am sitting here again saying how nice the snake looks when I have such a fear of them and yet this snake is simply stunning and worth commenting on repeatedly. Worth an 8.5 but since that isn't an option hows a 9? =o)

This is MAGIC ! Absolutely NOTHING like anything else I've seen. I find the textures really absorbing - especially the beautiful purple hue of the rope on the right.....er although I s'pose it might be healthier to keep and eye on the fire serpent.

10 because I've sat and stared at it for so long.

beautiful snake! needs better white balance on the background... you actually could've left out the rope or even just taken a pic of the snake alone
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/14/2003 12:18:08 AM
That looks like a lot of work, and must've taken a lot of patience.

This is really cool! Nice juxtaposition of color and form.
