I know the brown ribbon is no longer on my goals list, but this could be a real contender.This is a picture of my lips and chin. All I did was neat image, then resize, then curves, then gaussian blur because there was still noise.

This is actually a very interesting shot but it is no surprise that noone liked it on dpc.

Wow. All hail the master sucker. I, too, am amazed at how you ranked below the number of entries.

Has anyone ever accomplished this before: 198 our of 197?! Here we go again with the "true genius" thing.

Just wanted to add that this is very breathy - looks like a mirror or window steamed up with breath. Oh, but that would be from breath's exit. Maybe you put this in the wrong challenge.

To top the Brown Ribbon 2006 Master is sheer genius! Way to plummet into the cellar with this marvel. We're laughing at your pathetic PP description! Continue with the LOL genius! Thanks!

Wow! You even beat whiterook out of the brown! :)

The overly pink color is distracting. On the plus side, you successfully illustrated the rule of thirds.

I like the nice round number for the average from the commenters. That's a pretty nifty stat as well. AND a comment from xion. AND a brown ribbon in negative standing. Way too cool.

Shiesse, Don, I almost cost you that coveted brown! I gave you a 5 on this. But that placing - 198 out of 197 - is a stunt only a member of Team Suck could pull off. Congrats, my man!

Yes, a brown ribbon and yellow ribbon for the Suck League! We are FIERCE!

Ditto jaysonmc. I thought I got the brown. Not fair.

How do you get 198 out of 197? What kind of dizzying math is that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2007 12:07:39 AM

artistic but I don't find the lack of DOF appealing
  Photographer found comment helpful.

When I first saw this I didn't get it, having gone back to it and also seeing it in thumbnail I understand it, but it is all too blury for me. IMO its looks better in thumbnail, strange.

It's so blurry, I can hardly make out what it is a picture of.

I'm not sure what this is.

Too conceptual for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/27/2007 12:40:32 AM
focus would be good here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 09:58:30 PM
I have nothing to add. I'm sure everyone has told you already that it's out of focus, but I'm wondering why you still uploaded it. You put a border around it, so you saw that it was out of focus.

Maybe you're trying for the out of focus look. Not my cup of tea. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 04:52:52 PM
This didn't really do much for me; I liked the concept (a lot), but the severe use of the blur was too much. Something in focus would have given me a point to, well, focus on, and that would have helped it in my eyes.

Blur blur blur...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 07:26:33 PM
This is just way too out of focus for me. Kind of a unique idea but it would be nice to see more of it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 04:25:44 PM
I like abstracts but this one does not work for me - I feel the composition is off and I'm distracted by the orangeish bit in the bottom left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 03:19:57 PM
bad breath and taste entrance, seems
By real please... this is a total waste of resources.
I wish there were a 0.

01/25/2007 12:23:31 PM
Not sure what this is. Nice colours though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 07:31:19 AM
Not a very clear photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 04:34:42 PM
guess I am not into abstract...sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 01:38:10 PM
nothing is in focus and that makes it hard to understand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2007 04:30:51 AM
Thinking out of the box can get hazzardous results at DPC. i hope they are being gentle with you
