I'm sure you've gotten a thousand comments but here's 1001... where's your camera?
08/22/2006 02:23:24 PM
You've probably heard this a million times now, but I wanted to let you know why the low vote from me. I think you missed the part in the description of the challenge that says "use your camera to take a picture of itself". Beyond that, I like the image, but nothing seems to be in sharp focus.
08/22/2006 01:54:38 PM
That's not a camera!
:)
08/22/2006 11:35:02 AM
I think your misread the challenge description.
08/21/2006 06:13:18 PM
for a self-portrait this would be a nice shot, but as it was supposed to be of the camera itself, it does not meet the challenge
08/21/2006 03:24:16 PM
DNMC Where's the camera?

Does not meet challenge, nice shot nevertheless.
08/20/2006 06:01:05 PM
Where's the camera?

Great portrait, but perhaps a little more focus on the eyes might help. Unfortunately, I don't see a camera to fit this into the "camera" self portrait challenge.
08/20/2006 03:23:43 PM
I believe the notion of this challenge was to use your camera to take a picture of itself. This doesn't match the notion IMO. DNMC.

That being said, it is a very very good portrait which I like quite a lot. The lighting is superb. It seems to reveal the character of the subject very well.
08/20/2006 01:21:14 PM
I suspect you forgot to read the challenge description?
08/20/2006 12:58:29 PM
?
08/20/2006 11:14:41 AM
this is suppose to be "camera" self portrait not photographer...sorry
08/19/2006 02:29:07 PM
Nice, but where is the camera?
08/19/2006 06:19:14 AM
And the camera?
08/18/2006 08:23:19 AM
...and no camera?

camera self portrait, not a self portrait
08/17/2006 11:12:44 AM
I think this is in the wrong challenge.
08/17/2006 08:03:31 AM
Very nice self portrait, although I'm sure you'll be lots of DNMC comments.
08/17/2006 05:56:13 AM
..and brown perhaps
08/17/2006 12:08:02 AM
huh?
08/16/2006 11:41:49 PM
Where is the camera?
08/16/2006 11:28:50 PM
Where is the camera? I am sure you have heard by now that this was supposed to be a picture of your camera and not yourself. This is definately a nice photo if it was supposed to be a self portrait of your self.
08/16/2006 06:35:01 PM
wrong challenge !! where is the camera ?
08/16/2006 04:55:40 PM
I have a feeling you've missed the "camera" part.
08/16/2006 04:11:53 PM
where's the camera?
08/16/2006 03:37:43 PM
I don't think this is in the correct challenge.
08/16/2006 03:15:28 PM

08/16/2006 02:19:48 PM
I'm not seeing the camera. . .
08/16/2006 01:46:57 PM
I don't think you are a camera.
08/16/2006 11:43:02 AM
You've probably heard this many times already, and many more to come: Where's the camera?
08/16/2006 09:29:17 AM
Where's the camera????
08/16/2006 08:34:17 AM
I don't see your camera anywhere
08/16/2006 08:34:03 AM
I don't see the camera
08/16/2006 07:35:55 AM
uhmm forgot the camera?
08/16/2006 06:04:00 AM
not a portrait of your camera...
08/16/2006 05:38:53 AM
Fine portrait with the light and dark shades in the back, opposite of the lighting on the face.... BUT the picture is supposed to be a "self-portrait" of your camera.
08/16/2006 05:11:02 AM
I don't see a camera anywhere. I think you missed the point of this competition. Sorry.
08/16/2006 05:10:22 AM
Out of focus and - where is the camera???
08/16/2006 03:00:21 AM
The challenge breif:

Our cameras are essential to our work, but they never get star billing; they are always working behind the scenes. It's time they got their moment in the limelight. Your challenge; use your camera to take a picture of itself.

Unless you are a camera model I don't know about, I think you missed the point...sorry :-(
08/16/2006 12:34:08 AM
Ooops. Camera Self Portrait.
08/16/2006 12:30:44 AM
where's your camera?
08/16/2006 12:30:29 AM
Oops, I think you misunderstood - a self portrait of your camera. :) As for this shot, it's not quite in focus.
