Challenge: Where's Waldo? III (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Sony DSC-W55
Location: Columbus Ohio
Date: Jun 24, 2007
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Jun 24, 2007

This capture cracks me up. The sign says how great these life sized Imposters dolls are. The final line says "Do they not make you smile?" Yet the lady at the booth was about as stuffed as the dolls. So who is the imposter?

Interesting idea, but she is a bit too easy to find.

The lady on the phone at the desk is Waldo. Very cool idea though. I'd like more on the right and top though to see the lady in the chair and the Painter.

Great idea! Nice, even lighting, good and sharp. The composition seems pretty well balanced, too. It seems a bit snapshot-ish, using the woman working at the desk as your Waldo. It might have worked better to have a real person, possibly in costume, interacting with one of the mannequins.

Interesting,the placement of Waldo makes the eyes cover the whole photo.

I love that she is playing a role (bureaucrat? bourgeois?) as perfectly as the sculptures. That pose with cellphone cinches it.

Hehe, I've always wanted to buy a receptionist. Well spotted, I like this!

Cool :) We had to make faces like these in school once, but on a much smaller scale. I think it would be better if either the sign weren't there, or if the sign could be read.

Great take on the challenge, with an interesting (to put it mildly) image, from the images on the wall, to the person at the desk, to the imposters. Lighting is a bit flat -- probably explained by the indoor location -- but composition works well. A solid entry.

Bizarre and slightly disturbing shot....I like it!!!

Humorous. . You made me laugh. The composition on the right is a bit too tight, I think. Since all of them are shown completely on the left, it may feel more balanced to show them all on teh right. If you cropped some off of the left, though, that may work as well.

LOL! A little bit of editing would have made this really POP. Ummm...I guess this was a quick candid so there's not a lot you could have done, but I would have liked to have not seen the cropped granny on the right and the guy with the paint...perhaps if you asked nicely they would have let you take the shot properly composed and yet retained the sponteneity. The idea was great...6
