I just got this camera yesterday (Saturday) and figured that I wouldn't have time to enter this challenge 'cause I thought it would be something I would want to shoot from Monday - Friday. Then on the way home from showing off said camera, I stopped to get something to eat. Voila. I took this from my car...two shots -- one with the bag and one without. My first challenge. 8)

On the forum you commented that most of yours were B&W and the first one I look at is colored and I love it. It's so typical and IT"S IN COLOR, BEAUTIFUL in color. Did you try it in B&W. Bet it was nothing.
I do really like this and it is so well done, beautiful focus and not too sharp. Handing out the bag made this for you. Otherwise it was any drive through any where. Everyone recognized that "M". First time submission - ain't half bad. I'd a given it an 8 myself if I'd been on line back then. Do some more in color, you do well with it.

Beautiful compositon of sharp image and perpective. Keep it up!

The viewer doesn't know from the photo what day it is - Perhaps cutting "Sunday" out of the title? Otherwise an effective photo, however unfortunate the truth [ ;0) ] of it may be! I like how everyone's hands are beckoning for their bags to be passed thru the window ... even before they get there. Sorta robotic!

It's a good enough shot (has a just threw it out there look, that is not a good thing, if you planned this shot out, went through the line several times trying to get just "this look", I will gladly take it back.) The hand of the driver in front of you is in excellent focus (but wait, that wasn't really your subject was it?) Counter person, bag and person receiving food not in focus. Too bad for you I took a second look, you started out as a 7 (good shot, but hadn't thought it through), after really examining this photo, the best I can go is 4. sorry, Swash

The title makes this picture just that much better. I'd really like to see this shot much closer -- just car sides, drive-thru wall, and arms and bags. The trees and bushes don't fit well with the picture. Good shot.

Cute shot!

I think if you could have focused more on the bag, or another part of the picture, it would have been more effective. I feel like there is too much to look at here. karmat

This picture is all too true.

I'm guessing this was unplanned? Nice job. -7

did anyone ask what you were doing while taking this picture?
07/30/2002 05:52:00 PM
Definitely like the feel of this photo. Nice idea.

Great concept - still making me chuckle. I think I'd have cropped in closer to catch the product logo better. But that would have shown up the focus. The camera seems to have focussed on the back of the truck instead of the grey car. Which is a shame.

Good composition. I feel it would be greatly improved if the hand nearest the camera wasn't there, just the exchange and its reflection.

good depth ad detail

I like the fact that there are two high-calore trucks in the line for their McHigh calore stuff:)

Nice timing to capture the bag being handed out.
07/29/2002 10:22:00 AM
that's a good one!
07/29/2002 01:08:00 AM
Good exposure and composition. Nice use of reflections.

this is an interesting photo but it doesn't say 'corporate world' to me...
