Where's Waldo's head?! I appreciate the creativity- have found a lot of shots in this challenge to be very uninspired (and uninspiring)! Would have been better if hat wasn't cropped off the top.

oh fun, the invisible waldo man. i'm assuming that he moves his arm and points at you and what not? Nice black and white contrast and good color tone.

Would be even better if background was not cluttered. Neat idea!

Awesome idea! And creepy-looking to, with that bizarre chair. It looks like it could use a tiny bit more contrast... And also, since so much of the image is in black and white colors, it would have been cool to just convert it to black and white anyways, so that the spots of color here and there don't feel so out of place. But great idea! :)

Cool concept, but I find the backgroud very distracting. Not sure if it entirely meets the challenge either.

To fix the background you could bring everything except the hat, glasses, and suit to black.

Invisible Waldo :) Very nice.

I see six people in this photo!

Pretty funny. I see a bit of your arm but otherwise the setup is nice.

Hehe, funny photo op. Looks a bit hazy though. Maybe a contrast boost would help?

That is soooooo weird (and weird is always good). Have to say it was my 10 year old daughter rather than me who pointed out that his head would be just tucked in under his shirt collar (what a spoilsport she is).

The black and white works well and because the tones are a bit muted you get the feeling of having walked into a side show at a Victorian fairground

Do I get extra points for spotting the other Waldos reflected in the (distinctly non Victorian) glasses

This definitely needs much deeper shaddow

It looks like he has moose ears.

Nice picture but the processing isn't very good. The detail on the suit/glove has been removed and the whole image looks very grey.

Great idea, and wonderful execution. I love that it's an actual hand in the, well, hand! Makes me actually want to "go there" and shake it, or have a conversation (though that might be tough as they have no lips). Delightful. 9.

Is that Waldo's hairy wrist? I'd like this better if there were fewer distractions in the background and if the black was more black and the highlights not blown. Cool trick. :)

ha! i saw this dude last wednesday in covent garden! freaked me out initially, have to confess. does he fit the challenge though? i guess it does in a literal sense (one chap is hidden and is evident from the bit of flesh behind the glove). i do wish the environment played more of a part of the shot though. still, there are very nice elements; the partial desatuation makes for a pleasant change, and the main subject is suitably creepy enough. i do have a slight advantage in that i know the dude moves; i wonder if this is conveyed well enough to the un-initiated?

My First Weighted Scoring System ; composition + technical 1.5/3, challenge 0.75/1, post processing results 1.75/2, ooooh factor 2/3, originality 1/1 = 7

there might be a person reflected in the sunglasses, but atthis resolution, I can't really tell. Nonetheless, a novel take on the challenge.
