Very nice collage and spooky (old Bill always gives me the creeps :) Nicely orchestrated, nice colors. Nitpick: would have done without the 1-2 px green stroke because it just makes the image unduly busy. There's already a lot going on as is and i would have just let the image fade into a black border. I can't figure out the significance of the old-fashioned telephone which has a prominent place here but maybe that was in the movie (which i didn't see). 8

Automatic zero for including Bill Gates in this. No, hold on there is no 0 vote, I'll have to add 1 ...
1 + 0 = 10

Mostly I have been bored by the phone/glasses shots, but this one gave me a good chuckle thanks! Is also technically well done.

I hope he isn't the One ;-)
nice humor & nicely worked out idea !

This looks pretty seriously composited together (which counts as spot-editing, doesn't it?)
05/21/2003 10:58:28 AM
Yeah, that's it. Good idea, superb composition, concept full of meaning.
Good Luck.

Seems spot edited, is it?
05/21/2003 09:14:38 AM
hmm...quite possibly :) . Rather a satirical take on the theme. Nice combination of images.
05/21/2003 08:35:48 AM
