Very, very good image, in my top 3. Slightly overlit on the left side of the image.

Beautiful Primitive and Tastefull .. Great job!!
07/14/2003 10:57:21 PM
Fascinating. Well done.

Interesting - I like the projected image on the bodies. A nice technique
07/12/2003 08:03:04 PM
very creative. I now realize you added the tatoo in post production, but originally I was really impressed with how it lined up so perfectly over the two bodies. Cool shot.

This is one of my favorites. Very creative...wish I had thought of it. Very nice job indeed.
07/12/2003 03:10:20 PM
Extremely creative, very artistic. Nice work. 8

Very interesting subject. Very artsy/appealing!
I think the lighting is okay.. though a bit flat, and the focus could be sharper. The toes seems to be lost in the floor drop - maybe not.. that is minor though.
Overall good work!

Very cool.
07/11/2003 10:15:56 PM
is that a projection on their bodies??
07/11/2003 07:10:16 PM
Love the projection effect!! Top notch! Nicely exposed. Great job!
07/11/2003 06:00:32 PM
One ofthe best in this challenge. Can't think of anything I'd improve, other than maybe crop a bit from the bottom to center the models.

Great composition, perfect lightning. 8.
07/11/2003 04:42:34 PM
Very novel idea, and I like it a lot. But, the more I look at it ... for me, the strength of this is on the pose and the lighting, and the "tattos", while interesting, are a little distracting to my tastes. Still very unique - 8.
07/11/2003 04:39:07 PM
This is a really neat idea, by adding the "tatoos" you have taken an ordinary shot and made it extra interesting. My only suggestion owuld be with the lighting it is a bit too severe in the left side of the shot, but the overall effect is cool.8.

Imaginative! This photo would be interesting without the projection - well composed and lit (perhaps a little too bright on the left), but the addition of the "tatoo" really adds "wow"

Nice play with the light. A good composition. Very artistic.
07/11/2003 01:57:53 PM
This is so fake.....the worst shot in the challenge. There is no way that you are going to win a ribbon.
07/11/2003 01:36:42 PM
well done, confusing. ;)
07/11/2003 01:23:43 PM
Ah, were the patterns put on in Photoshop? Great idea! I might just try that at some point myself... The simplicity of the image works very well. The lighting is just a tad too harsh for me. A very effective shot. 9

This is a great shot! It's dark with a nice duotone (my fav kind!), it's uncluttered, simple, and yet complicated at the same time. It's very surreal and very interesting, and you can easily take a while just appreciating the complexity of it. The illusion is great, and having the pattern cross over onto the hands and feet gives it a wonderful flow. It has a very eastern feel to it. Not only is it visually appealing, but I can see and appreciate the time it must have took to get the right shot. If I have anything negative about the image, which isnt really a negative, it would be the 'glare' or 'harshness' of the light on the left side. It's not too bad but it does give the image a little unevenness or imbalance which I think which breaks the otherwise harmony of the picture.

Really unusual and unique!
07/11/2003 10:45:45 AM
What a clever use of light projection - this is such a quirky and unusual image. Just a touch dark for my preferences but still one of my favourites in this challenge.

I had hoped someone did projection tatoos - good one
07/11/2003 10:19:31 AM
This is a great photo!
07/11/2003 09:36:44 AM
Wow! I love the concept of the shadows... er, tattoos continuing across the two bodies here. Excellent and the best in this contest IMHO. Crossing my fingers for a ribbon on this one.

very original. Good job on the phototoshop. I like the symmetric feel of it. Jacko. 9

The tattoo is an interesting idea! Nice pic.
07/11/2003 03:56:48 AM
Cool usage of an overhead projector (or did you cheat and put it in afterwards?). Good work!
07/11/2003 03:56:17 AM
Great pose. the crop is a little off (models need to be shifted a bit right). The ink is wonderful, lighting works as well.
07/11/2003 03:01:34 AM
Kosmik! :-) Superb photo! IMHO, a top 3 this challenge for sure! I would have given you 10 had it not been for the missing parts at the bottom of the feet. As it is, the missing parts distract me and I loose the focus from all the lovely lines in this wonderful photo! Congrats! 9 - oh, and I absolutely love the hands. The hands are so strong visually! Wow!

Hey now, hey now, it's really good. I like the projection of the tattoo image (and i hope it was done in photoshop and not actually projected, so you benefitted from the lack of editing rules) This is my favorite so far and it could be a winner!
07/11/2003 12:10:22 AM
Excellent concept beautifully executed. Well done!
