I forgot - how would it work in b&w? Esp with the other side of the disc up could provide nice texture/brightness contrast with the can and hand.

Hi, I looked at your forum thread, and as you requested i'm responding here. I reallly like this idea, and while the lighting must have been tough, you did a good job. Still wish the focus on the hand and can had been sharper, or perhaps some light from the side to throw more shadows on the hand and show more texture in the flesh and more dimensionality. I like your white glove idea, but that would have been hard to light too. I like the simplicity, and sterile feeling a glove would add ( maybe even a plastic glove?) The whole image is a bit busy - there are all those holograms on the disk which lean my eye away from the bug spray, which is where the real joke is. How about using the other side of the disc? the move the hand and can more into the frame - I stil think you should include mor of the thumb. And if we could see a bit more of the can it would make it more central focus, then the eye would go to the disc, and, "a ha!" they'd get the joke. I say give your white glove idea a try, I'd love to see the results.

Well, I couldn't vote, because I am not a member. Unique idea and I love it, especially the colours of the CD. :-) I know it's hard to take a good photo of CDs, I have tried it and I didn't have much success. Honestly I would have voted a 9, I think, because of the skin tone. But that's all. Indeed a great submission, congrats! I had a look at the scores around you, you would have deserved a better place. Maybe the subjective side of voting, because technically really very good - with the eyes of a beginner.

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Great concept and interesting take on the literalism challenge. I like the composition…the hand enters the image in the lower right hand corner and leads our eye to the bug spray, then to the CD, good work! The colors on the CD are very vibrant and pleasing to the eye, while the colors on the hand and can are about as realistic as you can get. The exposure is just right, I have a feeling that lighting the CD, bug spray and hand weren’t an easy task.

About the only things that I can think of that I can think of for improvement have already been mentioned.

Very clever. Skin feels a bit too red for my taste. Other than that, I really like this. -8-

hee hee! Very modern literalism. Nice composition with the disc in the upper left. Wish the hand were a bit sharper and included the thumb

I really like the reflection on the disc but not really for the hand...

Would that it was that easy. Great idea, very well executed - particularly like the lighting on the CD-ROM "holograms".

*laugh* The lighting on the CD is very effective indeed. Nice entry.

It's going to take a lot more than that to debug Windows.
