What the heck is this a photo of, Lisa? Please no offense, but this looks like a child tied up and bound in a burlap bag. Considering recent news events, I think that is NOT a good thing. Again, please, no offense.

Although it is a loved object, it doesn't have universal appeal. It does have texture, and obviously a dimension unseen by the casual observer. Lighting is good. It looks sad, being hunched over.

I think I'd try and avoid the blinds to enhance the issusion that it the ground and not a bedspread.

So finally I get to 'Kermit':) Yes, I can see where the titile might be a bit ambiguous and allow some people to think too much.

The lighting is good, but the subject freaks me out...I really did think someone was in there!...no matter how I laughed at the comments in the forum! :-) Karen Bryan

what the hell is this? It looks like a person wrapped in a potato sack.. not exactly what I would call a "loved" posture!

Hmmmm, Mr. Kermi, Latin = Phuntus Manamus - I wouldn't sleep with this thing (with all due respect to the Kerminator). - Good luck Lisa

Lisa, I am commenting after reading "the thread". I started this shot with a 7. Not knowing what it was, didn't really matter to me. This shot has everything I look for in B&W (dislike the concept, but it's too popular to bad mouth often), the shot has great contrast, sharp/clear focus. On that issue, it's VERY NICE. The outer covering shows good detail, so the texture is very obvious. On the humorous side, even with your "explaination", I still don't see the frog! Because this shot has been discussed at legnth, during the voting, I am going to NOT change my original scoring. You started with a 7, end with a 7. Swash

You know... my wife SAID this was a frog... I'm not going to scare you with the list of what I thought it was. I gave it a 7 before I saw the thread and I'll leave it there. I liked the backlite (though the window doesn't really help)... Tell you what though, I'll give it an 8 if you promise never to post the color version :) Sounds real scary ~ But that's just me

I had no clue until you posted in the forums. I'm still not sure . . . . . . hahaha
Black and white works well, I think, and other aspects of the picture are good too. It's just a weird subject. :-) karmat

Meets Challenge4
Total Score6

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

I wonder if he talks to the other toys, ala Velveteen Rabbit?

Seriously, its a well-lit photo of a treasured item with a variety of textures. You can even seethe lumpy insides! The detail is definitely there. I am scoring it in the middle though, because it lacks punch. Do you know what I mean? I keep thinking if there was a child's hand extending into the photo as if leaving the froggie behind or something. It's hard to put my finger on to what would make this POP like some of the other photos do this week. The photo is well-executed technically to my eye. crisa58

interesting concept... the lighting is also nice, but the subject just isn't pulling my attention... = 5 - jmsetzler

Interesting shape. It reminds me or Mr. Potato-head. Nice tones to the B&W. I don't think your choice of background is effective...maybe something plainer than the blinds or a different angle to crop them out. I hope this is a stuffed doll of some sort, cause if it's a cut-up person in a burlap sack and that's your defition of "loved" I'll be really scared :-)

While I see texture in the photo, texture is certainly not the first thing that would come to mind.

Not sure I understand this one. Blinds in background are distracting.

good contrast but what is it? - I read your thread and now know what it is - it does look like a kidnapping victim!

Very very strange shot -- what is it? The black and white adds more mystery. As far as texture goes though I think more detail is needed.

The window blinds are very distracting,they mess up a really nice picture. Of something.
