A superb presentation, much like a rubber band that is ready to snap from being pulled to its limit. Congratulations on your 11th place finish. Very well done.

A superb presentation. Wow, it depicts so well a guy that is overwound. Very funny and a bump.

Interesting idea... humour certainly reads like a Larson cartoon which a lot of entries (excluding those which simply recreate one of his actual cartoons) don't manage.

haha, the fisheye makes this, good work

I like that you use a photographic technique to aid your joke, and that it seems original (if there is a similar cartoon it must have been executed differently). 9

This is really a neat photo outside of the theme. In the theme it is even better! Nicely done!
09/18/2006 09:12:45 PM
hahah that's hilarious
09/18/2006 03:04:37 AM
excellent use of wide angle, good lighting, nice props (except for the shirt) - 9

Love this. The fish-eye perspective works so well with this concept! Wonderful job. 10.
09/17/2006 04:18:53 PM
Excellent Far Side spirit. Funky angle. Good humor. bump to 8
09/16/2006 10:19:52 PM
The perspective / distortion here really enhances this shot; not only does it draw attention to the smallness of the book, thus helping the joke, but it also makes the model seem more geeky. Shadows are maybe a little distracting, but overall is not a huge problem. Great job!!
09/16/2006 05:21:18 PM
Ha!! Back to comment. This is hilarious and so well done. Where did you get that shirt? I work with a bunch of engineers (I'm a scientist so I feel like the "cool kid" when I'm with them!). That would be the perfect Christmas gift for them! Great set up & execution....had me laughing 'til I had tears. Good luck. 8

nice post processing dude. This is the only submission that is a real photograph and consequently should, and most likely will ribbon. If it doesn't i'll start a thread hehehe.

09/16/2006 12:01:42 AM
Creative, great job!
09/15/2006 10:35:56 PM
you got me. I find this highly amusing and the POV is what makes it work. 8 - good luck in the challenge!
09/15/2006 12:36:23 PM
Great job. Good luck. I vote a 9.
09/15/2006 12:21:54 PM

Perfect choice of lenses. 8

Well shot, and I believe it is an original, a clever one too, good choice of T shirt, ( Not when you bought it, I mean good choice for the challenge)
09/15/2006 02:01:25 AM
The best so far, love the composition and the t-shirt is a sweet addition.
09/15/2006 12:39:17 AM
