Haha this is so crappy, but I had to do something for my WPL team and it got too dark before I could perfect this. A 4 is better than a 0 for our team.

I'm trying to choose which category to put this in, but I cannot find "Complete Shit."

For as much as you seem to berate this image it is actually quite interesting and enjoyable to look at. Memorable.

I didn't vote, but that's damn cool, Joey!!! Love the woodland setting which is so opposed to the technological side of the camera and video.

A very smart and clever entry. Nice work. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

You are being too modest - this is a striking image. It works for me because of the juxtaposition of 'technical' and 'natural'. I'd like to see a more polished version with the cables hidden and maybe a flat screen for the video. Of course you may have had a enough of this idea already :-)

Sure it may be a little crappy, but it's very interesting. I'm waiting for the universe to collapse on itself due to some sort of vortex this three-way might cause.

I'd like to know where you plugged that tv in. Nice take on the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 09:32:10 PM
Very creative idea but it just doesnt seem to come off as a nice picture. Gave you a seven none the less. Give you credit for lugging all that around for a shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 02:26:58 PM
The most creative way to capture a camera self portrait by far. I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 12:23:18 PM
I think this captured the camera "taking a picture of itself".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 11:07:16 AM
I thought about doing something along these lines. extra points for thinking outside of the box!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2006 07:06:41 AM
how can i not give you a vote, this must have taken some effort to do. love the idea.

pretty cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 03:09:49 PM
Very creative! Only one minor issue...could have cropped out the bright sky in the upper right corner (I know, nit-picky) -9-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 02:24:54 PM
Good, it might look even cooler in a studio setting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 12:26:28 PM
Nice shot. I think it would have helped the surrealism if the cables were hidden from view.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 11:52:25 AM
Clever idea! Breaks up the "mirror" photos. Was there nothing more dynamic you could have done with the shot, though? Getting the camera lower would have been something a little different. Still, good thought!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2006 09:04:12 AM
Very well done.....very clever in fact.....

Definitely a creative way to get your camera self portrait.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

my sixth and last ten of the challenge. this is a fantistically humourous and bizarre photograph and a wonderful concept. the camera on the tv thing is genius on it's own, but to set it up in such an environment takes a certain sort of evil cunning that would seriously concern 007. composition is fantastically effective; even to the nth degree with the camera doing a rule of thirds thing on the TV screen! it's a marvellously wonderful and creative image, and i hope it will get a ribbon / honrouable mention.

Very creative! Great job, one of my favourites.

Overachiever! Got a kick out of this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2006 07:30:58 PM
for some reason, this image cracks me up. you should've called it, "look mom, i'm on tv!"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2006 06:25:34 PM
good effort maybe closer in would be better
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2006 04:16:56 PM
10 for ingenuity :)

Very creative idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 09:08:30 PM
I bet your wife (or husband) is in the back ground somewhere shaking their head, eaten up with pride that they married a person that would drag a TV out into the back yard to take pictures. J/K :) Cool set up, wish the cables were not so visible.7

Creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2006 01:57:52 PM
I love this shot. Just the additional thoughts that it puts into my head makes it worthy of a 10. I can just picture myself out hiking and seeing somebody walking along the train packing a TV and a photo bag. Very clever idea and very well done.

The camera and the video do not appear to be the same camera...good image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 01:57:55 PM
I like that you put a TV on a tree stump
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2006 01:46:31 PM
OK, let me get this straight. It is a still picture of a video camera aimed at the still camera and a monitor showing the camera. No mirrors! Neat!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
