The more I looked at this the more I liked it and I gave it a 9. Personally I think the soft focus/slight blur adds to the sense that something is about to happen. Its as though even the leaves are shuddering and your Waldo is quivering in anticipation. I like what you did with this and think it was underrated. I'm adding it to my favorites. :)

You know i have to skip voting on this because someone may come after me and accuse me of friend voting even tho i found the pic first and you never showed it to me ahead of time because we both know that if you did that and i went ahead and voted on this i may be cheating someone else out of their rightful score heeeeeeeeeeeh

did you read that in one breath? i typed it in one breath lol

So when did K start growing grass on his head???????????????? hehehehee Actually with the leaves and his peeking like this, you could use this as an illustration in a fairy tale story. I just get this whole gnomish feel to the pic.

You get an 11 from me :D

Pretty obvious, but I really like this picture for some reason. It would be nier if it was in sharper focus but otherwise the concept and execution is nice.

A little drab in colour and the light is a bit harsh, but still a very good idea.

It looks like you have a pretty good dof but just need a little better focus. Waldo's face is left center.

The green looks a little duller than I would expect...

This would make a good cover for a novel called "The Virginia Creeper" lol. I'm tempted to say that I don't like how you desaturated the green, but at the same time it really does add to the suspense. I hope there wasn't any poison ivy growing along with the virginia creeper. Nice work.

Well shot for the challenge, with good composition and a bit of subtlety to the colors which fits nicely with it. I'm actually a bit scared of what happens when Waldo comes out of the bushes . . .

Woah...Makes me think of the film Deliverance great shot in that it has almost an ominous nature about it yet at the same time (dont ask me why/how) there seems to be a touch of vunerability about the hidden person. Some people may think the foliage is a touch flat but for me it just adds to the ambiance of the picture the way it is

Excellent shot - somehow, this is exactly how I would picture Mr. "Waldo" would look like... I also like the colors - did you desaturated a little to get that sort of dusy effect? I like this!

Just too soft I'm afraid

The mans face is tinted green too. I wish it was a more pleasing green. Interesting image though.

I like the simplicity of this

Shame the focus is out. Also the greens look a little greyish.
06/25/2007 03:33:59 PM
Great idea, if only you step back just a tiny-tinny bit I think it might have made for a better waldo.

Nice shot, and nice colouring in the editing. I'd like to see a wider crop, with the subject not quite so centred. Maybe on a thirds point instead.
