damn, fell below the 7.0 mark on the last day of voting!

This was the best out of 70 shots (the first 40 were shot in RAW - stupid me!). Our closet is so small, it was hard to get a decent lighting. Camera stood two meters away, outside of the room, I stood in the door, holding a flash umbrella, the shutter was set to 20 sec.

I love this photo. Very creative and well executed shot. The only thing worse than this situation at home is when this happens at a public toilet!!

2007 has just begun, don't think i can keep an average of 3 ribbons every five weeks.

WTG, Beau!

Congrats. Btw, great job managing the limitations on sharpening. I think I see halos but the background makes them tolerable.

this is like a metaphor for Minimalism, and it's just how some people feel when they look at Minimalist art! Very funny. 9

Someone could be in for maximal doo-doo with this oversight :-). Good shot and humor.

Good shot! A composition that is well thought of. Creative, clean and not marred by any goofy post processing. I love minimalism.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My second 10 at 135 votes. really nice. minimalistic no doubt, clean and sharp, good composition, B/W fit well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2007 04:26:38 PM
Bumped to a 10 - very funny and definitely minimal!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2007 08:08:46 AM
I love the tongue in cheek title - goes perfectly with image. Any other title would not be as effective. Like the starkness - works with subject. Focus perfect, tones and composition excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/28/2007 05:06:31 AM
Too bad about the tilt, otherwise like it lots!
01/27/2007 05:15:50 PM
Minimalistic in all ways - great shot :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2007 03:54:09 PM
I usually don't like bathroom topics but this I like very much. I think it is the element of design that does it for me. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2007 06:54:45 AM
Cute.
01/27/2007 05:31:40 AM
Pity the perspective of the lens distorts the tiles a bit so that the ones on the left don't look as vertical as the ones on the right (or maybe that's just because of faulty building contractors :-) ). Anyway, that's minor, because this is a great shot. Minimalist indeed. And the subject is interesting (unlike many of the 'small object on a white background' shots). Very well done. Focus, sharpness and DOF are good, composition is good. And lighting is very nicely controlled. One of my favourites of this challenge.

Nice lighting and great idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 04:44:55 PM
I find the slight visual rotation distracting (you were probably just slightly to an angle with the wall), but nothing to lose points over. Nice concept.
