wow, you got a ton of comments on this pic, but what's one more? love this shot... very movie-esk... only thing I might change, BG permitting, would be to add more space to the top and left sides, great color and sharp focus

Hmmmm.... this is either a monitor or a background piece of art. This would be a tough one as it doesn't really scream bokeh to me. The out of focus background is there but the bokeh really isn't. (4)

Edit: Bumping up. It might still be a print but the technicals are there. The focus and good use of DOF. (6)

Cool take on the challenge. Nice setup.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2006 09:35:26 PM
this would make a good ad...minus the implications of a passed-out drunkard. I have viewed every entry in this challenge almost and this is by far my favorite, hope it wins. 9

great composition - this pictures tells a story... maybe not one we want to hear - but I find myself wanting to know the next chapter

I'm not too excited about bokeh created from a computer screen or picture. Where's the bottle's shadow from the sun? Nicely set up, but I'm being nice giving it a 4. Bumping to 6 on reassessment. I certainly don't think it's "cheesy"...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2006 05:41:50 PM
Lovely warm colours and complementary bokeh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/22/2006 03:21:29 PM
cheesy
06/22/2006 09:25:46 AM
I already voted, now back for comments. I gave you a 9 on this shot. Lovely colors, crisp detail, interesting subject and bokeh.

Cool.9

This is really good. The hand is the perfect touch to tell the story. Great colors, focus and BOKEH. Bumping it up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 08:07:26 PM
lol, looks like an advertisement... until you see the hand
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 06:29:58 PM
Nice! Very appealing photo! Great Work!

Nice use of the background! Love the shot! - 8

06/21/2006 05:40:46 PM
Excellent! The sunset doesn't look real though, but I love the idea and I'm giving you a ten, k?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 03:27:06 PM
I don't think the hand has to be in the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 11:45:04 AM
Wow. Gorgeous.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 11:20:03 AM
This is beautiful! It looks like an advertisement..well ok..without the hand it would be a good advertisement! lol
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 10:03:27 AM
OMG how I have been there....
Great image. It is tac sharp. The background makes the photo and your concept is original. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 09:31:28 AM
your OOF background definetly enhances this image. Very nice & creative.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 09:22:54 AM
The hand is distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 05:21:50 AM
that's a really crisp shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Meets challenge very well: "... take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background." - Is this studio or on a beach? The light in the sand looks artificial, look forward to see setup ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 01:02:36 AM
Gorgeous!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 01:01:05 AM
Again the "Bokeh", is strong here so well done...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 12:44:37 AM
i think this is a very good photo technically, I would have preferred it just straight advertisement withouth the hand.......make just a bit of a reflector to pick up the text on the seal.......but that's picky..........
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 12:34:45 AM
LOL! That deserves a vote just for making laugh!

But it's also very well done. Great job.
