Thanks to my friend Brandon for holding that mammoth thing...he sprained his wrist, and later his jaw as he attempted to eat the beast. Second shot with the new Casio Z1000 also...makes good shots I guess.

Totaly agree with you Keith. Howard Johnson did make the best 3 D burger. This burger can't whole a candle to a 3 D!

Congratulations on a superior image!
06/26/2006 10:22:31 AM
The colors are gorgeous. And now I'm oh-so-hungry :)
Congrats on the ribbon, it's well deserved.
06/26/2006 08:23:35 AM
Um hungry.. :)
06/26/2006 02:22:20 AM
eh?
06/23/2006 07:50:42 PM
This image portray the theme with great gusto! Congratulations on your Yellow.
06/23/2006 03:55:37 AM

06/23/2006 12:13:35 AM
Hey, really glad you won another ribbon but this photo stinks man. :-)
You can do so much better
Anywho, hope to see more from you later

I'm a little confused to see this got so many 10's.

Im a little confused to see this got so many 4's. Who and the world could give this a 4 or less. The contrasting colors, the focus, and meeting the definition of the challenge carries it well over a 4. Not to mention the uniqueness, DOF, and the composition. If I scored only 1 point for each of things I mentioned its at least a 6.

I personally think people can vote which ever way they choose, but it sort of begs the question who could possibly vote this a 1, 2, or 3.

Congrats, very nice interpretation of the challenge, and masterfully executed.
06/22/2006 02:04:56 AM
tied for 2nd in my vote nice one, congrats
06/21/2006 05:26:33 PM
Congrats clint on your 2nd ribbon.
That hamburger looks really good too.
06/21/2006 04:44:02 PM
Damn that looks soo good.
Congrats on your ribbon--
06/21/2006 03:43:06 PM
Congratulations to you and a roll of Tums to your brave buddy for even attempting to eat that thing!! Well done!
06/21/2006 02:53:07 PM
Congratulations on your ribbon! well done!
06/21/2006 12:30:10 PM
Thanks for making me smile and congratulations on your ribbon!
06/21/2006 12:13:28 PM
That's genuinely disgusting. I want one :-) Congrats on ribbon!
06/21/2006 11:30:54 AM
Congratulations Tom. This was the "I wouldn't mind having one of those for myself now" shot of the challenge for me;)
06/21/2006 07:47:56 AM
Congrats dude, it´s good that you are getting the ribbon hogging out of your system before the WPL2 starts, hehe :)
06/21/2006 06:59:54 AM
Awesome job Clint!!! Congratulations
06/21/2006 05:05:02 AM
The photograph has good and pure colours, great focus and it has an artistic value. Maybe not traditional art but art it is.
The photograph meets the challenge 100% and that is what gives so many 10's.

It meets the challenge and the idea is cool but...

In my book, a 10 is at least aesthetically pleasant. This image meets the challenge, is well composed, obviously the colors and the details are there. BUT, the lighting sucks imo... and it's not pleasant to look at (unless you're the type of person who can't say no to one of these). I don't really see any real artistic value in this. So yeah, I'm fine with people that think this is a 9, but a 10? I don't get it.

I'm only saying this because I think this community is great and I beleive it's important that people vote with some common criterias as much as possible. It doesn't mean I have it right and others have it wrong. I might be the one that's wrong, but then I'd appreciate if we could talk about it. I'm all open for discussion.

Btw this has nothing to do with the photographer, I'm just voicing my thoughts about this image. Don't take this as a personal attack or jealousy because it's not.
06/21/2006 02:47:31 AM
I really have no idea How this came 3rd.. but congrats anyway..
06/21/2006 02:45:08 AM
Great colours..Congrats on the ribbon!
06/21/2006 02:29:19 AM
Hey, wow! congratulations, this isn't your typical DPC ribbon winning type photo (by that, I mean no flowers, famous cities, or waterfalls, lol) sweet perspective too

Ohhh cruelty! Do you have any idea how hungry that makes me? I think I'm going to have to go out and buy a damned hamburger now! Curses upon you!

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a good decent hamburger in this country?

:)
06/21/2006 12:46:46 AM
You call that a burger?? Now, THIS is a burger!

Congrats on the ribbon and a great shot!
06/21/2006 12:36:29 AM
I gave you my highest vote, great shot, was the very definition of the challenge I thought.
06/21/2006 12:33:29 AM
Congratulations on the ribbon. This shot received my highest vote. Well done.
06/21/2006 12:25:09 AM
Congratulations on ribbon! Great image, knew it would do well.
06/21/2006 12:24:24 AM
Congrats on third place!
06/21/2006 12:18:01 AM
No offense but who the heck would fav this? :P Great idea. I had this finishing third and you pulled it off. Congrats.
06/21/2006 12:17:43 AM
Congrats on your Yellow. Better watch your cholesterol....LOL!
06/21/2006 12:16:34 AM

Yeah, that works !

Great shot, perfect for the contest.
06/20/2006 10:44:21 PM
Love this. Angle is great! All the colors make this really pop.! 9
06/20/2006 09:54:14 PM
Great colors, crispness and clarity! Love it ;)
06/20/2006 09:13:14 PM
This should be the winner. Great funny shot. Bumping up!
06/20/2006 07:34:53 PM
Meets the challenge in a Jenny Craig sort of way. Vibrant colors. Good contrast. But not a subject that appeals to me.
06/20/2006 04:10:39 PM
awesome!...
06/20/2006 03:24:06 AM
yay!!!
06/19/2006 10:22:41 PM
This one might qualify as over-indulgence ... : )
06/19/2006 09:36:07 PM
Awesome shot! Great take on the theme for sure.
06/19/2006 06:23:15 PM
Holy crap!
06/19/2006 04:46:27 PM
Bonne Appétit!!!
06/19/2006 01:05:15 PM
that boggles the mind
06/18/2006 08:20:30 PM
Looking through the thumbnails, this is the image that really caught my eye. The saturation of colours is really overdone, but for this image it really works, and it matches so well the bright colour, plastic toy-like marketing image of fast food. Great crop. Well done.
06/17/2006 07:54:05 PM
Makes me hungry :o) good colors, good focus - nice pic
06/17/2006 01:37:13 PM
great shot of the burger!
06/17/2006 10:18:49 AM
MMMMMMM! That makes me hungry!! Great capture!
06/16/2006 07:50:12 PM
this photo definitely has bite nicely done or is it overdone :-)
06/16/2006 10:21:45 AM
Jaw cramps! Yes, and people actually do this.
06/16/2006 05:33:30 AM
thanks to the fact that I'm a vegetarian, this is un-appealing to me..
but it none the less meets the challenge!
great angle and composition.
now, where'd the salad!?
;)
06/15/2006 09:51:42 PM
Nice bold colours. And I liked the pose.
06/15/2006 09:11:49 PM
sweet! stubble goes perfect with the He-Man burger
06/15/2006 08:02:54 PM
That is a big bite! Indulgance certainly.
06/15/2006 05:49:03 PM
Awesome shot...love the colours.
06/15/2006 01:01:46 PM
LOL...that is just disgusting! :)
06/15/2006 09:13:57 AM
Oh man...*drool* I love the detail! My mouth is watering! Ultimate indulgence! Gotta have the sundae I saw in this challenge after this one! LOL
06/15/2006 07:56:20 AM
nice shot; competitive eating is making inroads. is that potato bread; points off for teh lettuce; who has time for ruffage?
06/15/2006 01:38:11 AM
Love it.
06/14/2006 07:04:56 PM
This is cool!, My only 9 (gave no 10 this time)

Perfect angle for this. Love the colours, the clarity is excellent. This should be in the top 5.
06/14/2006 04:42:26 PM
That's what I'm talking about!!!!
06/14/2006 04:14:34 PM
I can almost hear your arteries clogging up. Nice shot.
06/14/2006 03:59:16 PM
Wow. Never really wanted to see one of these this close. Colors and POV are excellent.
06/14/2006 12:27:07 PM
Nice
06/14/2006 12:07:23 PM
great shot-and goodlooking hamburger too
06/14/2006 05:52:06 AM
definitely meets the challenge and fills the belly-9-
06/14/2006 05:32:35 AM
very good...only thing that spoils this is the distracting background
06/14/2006 05:04:33 AM
LOL.
06/14/2006 12:27:51 AM
This would be perfect the fender of an escalade or hummer in the background.
