Is it that Jesus was God, not man, and the weeping is a personification of God doing something man would do ??? Oh my goodness, such a deep thought...

The focus in this picture seems very good to me. As I am not familar with this verse, one thing I find a little confusing is why the word "Where" is in red. For me, it was a little distracting as I couldnt figure out how (or if) it was related to the highlighted words. Also, I personally think you chose a nice angle for this shot.

My point of focus is the verse, not Jesus. If you don't get my link to personification, fine. I was asking for comments on the photo, NOT more references to the challenge. I GET that no ones gets my reference.
10/19/2005 08:45:06 AM
I don't get it.
Simple as that. And looking at your comments a lot of people didn't.
Jesus was a person. You can't personify something that is already a person. Maybe you point was god making a human son to roam the earth? I don't know. Religious referances are like american flags and grave yards. Not every one shares your beliefs/pride on a global network, and some may have anomosities.

*edit* i think it is really sad that you specfically asked why you got a low score. That you asked for help from people to tell you why this photo did not do well, and you then don't mark thier comments as helpful.

I agree that the content is probably one of the main reasons why this got a lot of low votes.
The same way as "cute baby" pictures seem to get an adverse reaction.
It may not seem "fair", but people usually aren't going to vote something very high that has no appeal to them, whether it's a good photo or not.
I didn't vote on this challenge, but I must admit the content of the photo doesn't appeal to me at all (nor do cute babies!!!)

I wont comment on how this fits the challenge. I do think the photo in itself it quite well taken, composition is ok as well. On this monitor at least it looks like there is a bit of purple fringing around the letters but thats not too distracting. I think the reason it didnt do as well as youd hope is because of the subject rather than the way it was taken, thats just an observation of DPC. So dont be too down!

A great photo. I'm not 100% sure about the personification.

While your photo does evoke human feelings, for me, it doesn't personify an inanimate object as well as other entries in the challenge. I do appreciate the fact that this is a very personal entry for you. :-)

Interesting interpretation. Love the lighting on this and the use of space. The slight angle really accentuates the subject. The Theme is a little harder to see with the challenge though.

Lost me on this one, can't stretch it to fit the challenge.
10/14/2005 02:44:04 PM
Nice pic. Is it on topic?

I'm not a bible scholar, so I don't understand the reference - and I'm having trouble seeing the personification here.
10/13/2005 12:02:06 PM
I miss how this fits the challange.
10/12/2005 10:02:47 PM
I get what you're going for but since the inanimate object you photographed isn't what's doing the personifying I just don't think it meets the challenge.
10/12/2005 03:30:44 PM
I don't understand how this meets the challenge.
10/12/2005 12:31:26 PM
I'm not sure how this meets the challenge.
10/12/2005 11:59:27 AM
Great scripture, but where is the personifaction, if it is Jesus Wept he was human and does not meet challang

How is this personification?
